My lips stay dry and chapped this time of year.
I have found a perfect solution.
A natural solution.
I exfoliate them twice a week, using the following recipe.
a half teaspoon of raw honey
one teaspoon of sugar
Mix it (I just use my finger) into a paste.
Gently massage it onto your lips.
Let it dry a bit.
This leaves lips so soft.
Honey naturally moisturizes, unlike many ingredients used in popular exfoliants, which are actually drying.
I only use raw honey, which I discussed here.
This is not an exact recipe. Experiment and find the consistency that works for you.
Sometimes I just put a drop of honey on the back of my hand, and sprinkle sugar over it, and mix it on the back of my hand. Added bonus: my hand is exfoliated and moisturized as well.
I hesitated to write this post, because if its simplicity, but I was pleasantly surprised by the buzz (
haha) in response to my first post, where I shared why, and how, I use raw honey as a face wash.
One reader e-mailed me over the weekend, sharing a recent article about celebrities who are using raw honey as part of their beauty regimens. So, there you have it, Farm Filers*, we are ahead of the trends!
