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.

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!
