Sugar Lip Scrub

Wow, it's been a long time since I've been on here. Life has been so busy with all the holidays.. I'm finally starting to slow down. One of my New Years resolutions is to have more 'me' time. Which means more baking/cooking (one of my ultimate de-stressers), which will then mean more recipe blog posts! Yay! 

Also, I keep getting asked about my nails (I do my own gel), so I'll be doing a post soon on what I use, and where to get everything, how-to, etc. 

Well, it's been cold here. Real cold. I am ready for Spring/Summer.. I don't know about you guys, but these cold windy days have just been destroying my lips. The Pacific Northwest is CHILLY! I feel like my lips are alllllllwaysss chapped. I'm constantly applying chapstick. (I swear by Jane Iredels 'Lip Drink'. -SPF is so important!!) And I'm not even outside that much.. 

So I'm sharing my favorite little go-to lip scrub. I love it because all the ingredients can be found in your kitchen, and it's so quick and easy!  




Ingredients 
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 drop vanilla extract (optional)

Directions
Mix all ingredients until combined. Apply a small amount to lips, and gently rub. When done, wash off with warm water. Store in closed container. 





Hope you enjoy!
