DIY Lip Scrub...#SelfCareSunday
Spa Day at Home
Happy Sunday! The weather is starting to change here in Georgia. Cooler temps can sometimes be harsh on our skin. So, we thought it would be cool to do a DIY Project today...a lip scrub and a lip mask We have two recipes that are really simple and created with household items. These are both really nourishing and a great way to combat chapped lips. Exfoliating will remove the dead skin and make your lips less likely to chap.

- Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to this mixture.
- Stir until completely blended, apply the scrub to your lips and rub it well in circular motion for 2-3 minutes.
