So I was in the liquor store and was like wow, Skinny Girl has a margarita now. Then I was in Walmart and it was like wow, Skinny Girl has skin products now. I put the lip scrub in my cart, because I had been looking for one. I wheeled that baby around a while and finally put it back. I was thinking I could make my own lip scrub. Here is how that went.
So the purpose of the lip scrub (not pictured) is to give you a smooth canvas for your lipstick. Here are some recipes to try at home.
From here Squidoo I got the following recipe;
Take approximately 2 tablespoons of plain table sugar in a small bowl. Add honey, one teaspoon at a time, until it reaches a nice, thick, sticky, consistancy. If you want to add a moisture element, add a few drops of Olive Oil and blend well.
This one worked well, but it was pretty sticky with all the honey, and I kind of made a mess
A more simple one I found that worked great was good ole Vaseline and Sugar.
You put on the Vaseline, dip in the sugar and scrub away.
From here I got this;
Use a sugar and salt lip scrub recipe 2 or 3 times a week for very dry lips. Mix a teaspoon of sea salt, a teaspoon of white sugar and a teaspoon of shea butter in your palm. Put the mixture on your lips and let it stay for a few minutes, then rub your lips together to exfoliate. Rinse your lips with warm water and apply more shea butter to moisturize and protect your lips.
