DIY hack to get rid of dry lips

You need:

  • Cotton swab
  • Honey
  • Sugar
  • Toothbrush  

How to:

Step 1: To make a DIY lip scrub, mix one teaspoon of honey and fine-granulated sugar in a bowl. Mix well to form a smooth paste.

Step 2: Take a cotton swab and roll it over the mixture until it is fully coated with it.  

Step 3: Rinse your lips and pat dry. Apply the lip scrub on your lips with the help of swab and massage gently a couple of times.

Step 4: Now, take a clean toothbrush and scrub the lips gently with it for a few minutes. It will scrape off flaky skin and the honey will leave your lips moisturised and soft.

Step 5: Wash your lips and follow up with a lip balm.
