DIY Glam:Sugar Lip Scrub

I have been basically held hostage inside my house since last weekend because of a snowstorm that left over 20 inches of snow on the ground. Well we had another 8 or so inches last night and although I was able to get out for groceries between storms, I haven't been able to go anywhere in a while. I think Sephora misses me.

Since I haven't been able to go anywhere, and my lips have been so dry because of the freezing weather, I decided to whip up a tasty and effective homemade lip scrub. I don't suggest eating it, but it does taste pretty good on your lips.

It is really simple. All you need is brown sugar and honey. I added a pack of raw sugar also to increase the intensity of the scrubbing, because I needed that, although I would suggest just sticking to the brown sugar if you are unsure. I wish I had organic brown sugar or honey in the house, but since I didn't, I just used what I had. I also have here some little pots I found around the house to stick the scrub in.

Mix brown sugar and honey together in a bowl...and voila! It's as easy as that!

Pretty effective won't save your life..but I see it as just as good as any lip scrub I have bought at what would be 100x the price.
