Inspired by: @michellephan

During the harsh winter months, it is understandable (and annoying) to have dryer, chapped lips. We all know it ain’t pretty. No worries because there is a DIY Lip Scrub that can help make your lips go back to normal. The lip scrub is very easy to do. Applying the lip scrub is a messy but fun experience.

    • You have such good questions! Honestly, I try to always make enough just for one lip scrub for myself and just wash off the excess. I believe you can store it in an airtight container, but you have to keep it in the refrigerator. I also think that you can make it scented/flavored by adding an extract of your choice (ex: vanilla extract, etc.)

      And thank you for mentioning the before and after photo. I was hesitant to put up the before photo at first, but then I realized this is what people would want to see, if it actually works!
