Winter brings cooler temperatures, blustery winds and arid air (especially when you crank up the heat inside)—all of which can leave your lips feeling chapped and dry. When your favorite lip balm just isn’t enough, try this DIY lip scrub, which can be whipped up with only four ingredients—all of which are probably already in your pantry. Brown sugar gently exfoliates, while coconut oil and raw honey moisturize, and the fragrant combination of cinnamon and sugar smells good enough to eat.
This scrub also makes a great hostess gift or luxurious treat for holiday house guests, too. Hint, hint!
