I admit that I have a love-hate relationship going on with our Southern California weather. Although most days are found to be clear and sunny, it’s the winter air that leaves my hair and scalp dry, and my lips and skin chaffed and cracked from the blazing central heater running all night, and the wicked wet winds biting outdoors. And although I try to stay hydrated as much as possible, it never ceases to amaze me how much of a difference my skin and lips feel after a good exfoliate.
My recent obsession with DIY scrubs has given me the opportunity to experiment with all the wonderful fruits in my cupboard, as well as having full control over what goes on my face, skin, and lips. So, whether novice or pro, lips scrubs are easy enough for anyone to whip up at home and enjoy. But be forewarned, these six little recipes smell so delicious that you’re gonna wanna eat them up….but please don’t.
