fresh from your kitchen: honey brown sugar lip scrub

We're getting into that time of year where cold, dry weather starts to do a number on our skin. Your lips actually have some of the thinnest skin on your entire body, which is one of the reasons they are prone to getting dry and flaky in the winter. This simple recipe can help to smooth and nourish chapped lips and will keep for a few months in a small container for repeated use.
1 T brown sugar
1 T oil (try olive, grape seed or sunflower)
1 t honey
A few drops of baking flavoring if you desire (like vanilla, peppermint, orange or almond extract)

~mix ingredients together in a small bowl with a spoon
~scoop into a small container for future use
~apply to your lips with finger tips or a soft toothbrush with gentle, circular motions
~follow with a natural butter and oil based lip balm like sweet lips or hot lips

Viola, smooth, moisturized lips! Remember to apply lip balm regularly to help keep them that way.
