This is what you will need:

* 1 Tbsp. white sugar

* 1 Tbsp. brown sugar

* 1 Tsp. cinnamon

* 1.5 Tsp. olive oil

* 1 Tsp. coconut oil

* 1 Tsp. of honey

* Mix with a spoon until completely blended (it will be coarse).

* Take a little bit with index finger and massage the entire lip area. Wipe off after 1 minute.

* Store in a container and use 3 times a week.

The sugar acts as a gentle exfoliator, while the oils help soften and loosen dead skin. The honey is a valuable humectant providing moisture to our skin. It also has antibacterial and antioxidant properties that stop free radical damage causing pre-mature aging!
