I don’t know the deal is, but this summer my lips have been dry. They’re not a super chapped, peeling, wintery kind of dry, they’re more just like shriveled little burnt raisins kind of dry. Makes sense right?

Stay with me here, I have a theory. I don’t sunscreen my lips. I sunscreen my face and entire body, but I neglect my lips. And so, I think they get sunburnt without me realizing. And, as much as I was applying chapstick to bring my lips back to life, it felt like I wasn’t making any headway.

So I thought it would be fun to make a lip scrub to scrub away the dead skin left from the sun damage. A scrub to rejuvenate, to moisturize, and to replenish my lips with health and happiness.

This lip scrub recipes is as simple as mixing a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. I used my index finger to scrub it into my lips, I let it sit. I licked it a little because it tasted delicious, I applied more, let it sit again.

Then, I washed it away and I can’t tell you how excited I am about how soft and juicy my lips feel. Like pillows. I have silky smooth pillow lips and I cannot wait until my next scrub. What? I’m not weird, you’re weird.

And all this while, as I sat and scrubbed my lips and let my lips drink in the delicious moisture, my youngest son, Nolan, came up, and ate the entire little lip scrub container because #sugar and I can’t blame him.

Truth is, it’s made with sugar and while you’re letting it sit on your lips, I had a few licks. It’s delicious.
