Step-By-Step Fix For 'Messy' Lips: DIY Sugar Lip Exfoliator
Start with oil (coconut oil hardens in the refrigerator, so just return it to liquid form by heating gently in a pan of warm water)…
Add equal parts sugar (white sugar is fine, too)…
And honey…
And mix well.
Apply to lips with a damp toothbrush and scrub gently for thirty seconds or so, then rinse off.

Much better.

(This makes a lovely DIY gift, by the way; just fill a sterilized baby food jar with scrub and tie a bit of twine around the top to make it pretty.)

StyleList contributor Ramshackle Glam shares a quick and easy DIY for a sugar lip exfoliator just in time for summer.

Taking care of dry, chapped lips doesn't have to mean splurging on an expensive exfoliator to do the job. Fight any flaky lips with an exfoliant made from just a handful of kitchen staples. After a day at the beach, combine honey, brown sugar and coconut-oil for a winning DIY fix. Ramshackle Glam says, "...And if you don't have coconut oil, you can easily swap in olive oil (the finished product won't smell as beachy, that's all)."

Click the slideshow above for Ramshackle Glam's super simple, step-by-step instructions for a sugar lip exfoliator.
