While it’s true that a really moisturizing lip balm can heal dry lips, sometimes you just can’t manage the chap. Leave it to this amazing lip scrub to help. It’ll remove dead skin and moisturize your rosy lips underneath. We’ve tapped Adina Grigore, founder of natural skincare line S.W. Basics and author of Skin Cleanse: The Simple, All-Natural Program for Clear, Calm, Happy Skin to help us get perfectly smooth (and kissable!) lips, just in time for Valentine’s Day. With just a few simple ingredients you can find in your own kitchen (think honey, brown sugar and coconut oil), this recipe is quick, easy and effective!

INGREDIENTS (Approximately 4 uses)
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon coconut oil


1. In a small bowl, mix the honey and brown sugar, then add the coconut oil and stir.

2. Press and scrub onto lips - don’t worry if it gets in your mouth; remember it tastes delicious!

3. Rinse clean, scrubbing while you rinse.

Your lips may be a little sensitive after you scrub, so make sure to apply a natural lip balm. The scrub will store for a few weeks but harden over time.

p.s. Now, soak!
