How to make an Exfoliating Lip Scrub At Home in just 2 Steps

Exfoliation or Scrubbing of lips once or twice in a week is important for having smooth and juicy lips especially in the winter season when the lips tend to dry or get chapped often.Exfoliation helps in removing dead cells/layer on the lips, prevent lips from peeling and bleeding. Though there are several ready made lip scrubs available in the market,it is always better to use home made ones as they are safe and chemical free.There are several methods to prepare a lip scrub at home.Today I am sharing the most easiest one among them in just 2 Steps.

Preparation :

 1) Add a tsp of lip balm/honey to the sugar.I have used my Forest Essentials Lip Balm which I reviewed here.It has to be used  within 3 months of opening,it is almost 3 1/2 months and so I am using the  lip balm in this way.
