    You can whip up your own lip scrub with ingredients already in your kitchen! You’ll need an oil (like coconut or olive), a sugar (brown or white), and a dollop of honey (to create a thick texture). Slowly mix half-teaspoon amounts of each ingredient in a bowl until you get a thick, grainy texture--or follow this tutorial for a sweet scrub inspired by Sara Happ’s Lip Scrub.
