What is required?
- Sugar is an ingredient that is easily available. It is one of the least harmful substances that you can use for the preparation of the lip scrub. So, sugar is the main ingredient in this lip scrub. You can use both white and brown sugar because each has its own benefits.

- Cinnamon is also added to the ingredients because it brings a good flavour to your lip scrub. Cinnamon is also said to act as a good lip plumper. So, cinnamon is also a good addition to the ingredients used in lip scrub.

To begin with, take a clean bowl to add the ingredients. Add one teaspoon of sugar into it. The ingredients that you are taking here is to prepare scrub for 3 uses only. For less or more uses, you can change the quantity accordingly.
Now you have to add half a teaspoon of brown sugar into the bowl. We take less amount of brown sugar because we need more of the granular component in the scrub and this we get from white sugar. Granules help in giving a good scrub to your lips.
Next you have to add half to one teaspoon of pure honey according to your comfort and preference.
As you keep adding the ingredients, the mixture becomes more colourful and attractive.
Now you can add a little of almond oil to the mixture. Almond oil is one of the best oil you can use because it is not very sticky and does not give that oily feeling. It is also very beneficial for the skin.

Now your scrub is ready. Take little of it on your finger tips and scrub your lips with it. Rub over the lips in light strokes with your fingers. Take a tiny amount of the mixture 2 to 3 times while scrubbing and rub it along the corners of your mouth. Once you have finished scrubbing, wash it off with lukewarm water. After scrubbing and washing, you can apply a little Vaseline or lip balm on your lips if needed. This scrub is so nourishing that most of you will not require a lip balm for the next 2 hours.
