Favorite new DIY lip scrub

Confession: I’m not usually a DIY-beauty sort of girl. That’s why I tend to be in Sephora several times per month (or week). Friends, this is as close as it gets.

I was feeling a little under the weather today and have quite a few social events scheduled for the weekend. The New York winter air is not helping remedy dry lips and skin, so the timing was opportune to do a lip scrub.

After raiding my beauty cabinet, I found I was out of any lip-appropriate exfoliant. Many of the homemade lip scrubs I’ve seen contain messy ingredients such as olive oil or lemon juice. So, I created the easiest little recipe and was very pleased with the results.

Instructions:
Load up your lips with Smith’s Rosebud Salve
Top with Turbinado Sugar and mush with your index finger for 60-90 seconds.
Wash or tissue off, add some additional Rosebud Salve, and you are good to go!
I suggest doing this routine weekly, especially in the cold climates.

Easy peasy. And I feel ready to take on the weekend!
