Peppermint Lip Scrub – Freshen up your pucker up for Valentine’s Day!

Peppermint Lip Scrub

The winter is bearing down on us all and taking its toll on our bodies.  You can feel it in the brittleness of your hair, the dryness of your skin and your chapped lips.  For me, the lips are always the worst.  No matter how much water I drink they still can feel dry at the end of the winter.  I know there are some great lip scrubs on the market but they are spend-y.  So what is a DIY girl to do?  Make them yourself of course!

Peppermint Lip Scrub

This scrub is so simple and easy and the peppermint not only adds to the exfoliation process but freshens up the breath as well.  Just take a dollop and place on your lips for a minute or two, then buff off with a washcloth and warm water and voila! smooth lips that are ready to be kissed by that certain someone on this Valentine’s Day.  As a bonus, wouldn’t these make sweet little Valentine’s gift too?   Simple, sweet, useful and cheap; that is my kind of gift!
