I love lipsticks… even if I go to grocery shopping with dad my lips are never without hint of colors. 😛 As we all know lipsticks are of different finishes creamy, glossy, matte…so on; my fav is matt finish; so one can imagine the torture my lips go through! As a lipstick lover I love taking care of my lips so that they look supple and kissable. 😉 How doesnâ€™t like kissable lips!! 😛
I am totally addicted to lip balms and lip scrubs; my fav lip scrub is Lush Julips Lip Scrub Â (Read Lush Mint Julips scrub review here). Iâ€™m the laziest person on this earth to try DIYâ€¦but my Julips lip scrub got over and the place I stay has no lush stores and the online shipping charges are exorbitant. So, thatâ€™s what made the laziest person on earth (thatâ€™s me :-P) to try out this homemade lip scrub. Itâ€™s very simple and the ingredients are easily available in my mommyâ€™s kitchen.

Ingredients needed for making Homemade Lip Scrub:
- Sugar– 1 tsp of sugar
I crush the sugar little bit so thatâ€™s itâ€™s easy to exfoliate and doesnâ€™t keep falling from my lips. 😀
- Honey– 1 tsp of honey
- Olive Oil– 10-20 drops
Olive Oil is very famous in skincare/hair care. It helps in retaining the moisture of lips.
- Lime Juice– Just few drops 2-3 drops.
This is optional but as I have pigmented lips I make it a point to add lime juice as lime juice acts as lightening agent.
An empty container to store and a baby toothbrush 😀
Mix all the ingredients in the order stated above and voila your lip scrub is ready.
Before scrubbing my lips I apply almond oil for 30 mins so that my lips are soft and the dead cells can be scrubbed off easily. I scrub my lips alternate days and make new batch every time I use. I use a baby toothbrush to exfoliate properly and remember to be gentle you are scrubbing yours lips not feet :rotfl: . Wash with luke warm water and a apply moisturizing lip balm.
