I have had incredibly dry lips lately so I decided to make a lip scrub.  I decided to make one from honey baking soda and a few pinches of sugar.  It is working incredibly well.  I follow it up by using either oil (olive or canola) or a chapstick on my lips. I have read a few recipes that included ground up asa but am not sure the reason for that, I will do more research and if i find the information I will add it to my post, try it and let you know what I think of it.  for now here is a pick on my scrub in a pot from the dollar store and all I have to say is that  my lips are doing much better today.

never thought of using a lip  scrub, sounds like something I need!

Does the baking soda make it taste funny?

I would definitaly not eat the scrub,  just wipe it off with a damp cloth then put on some lip balm.  It really gets off the dry bits of skin,  the skin on your lips is thin so be sure to rub gently.

HA HA. I don't think Attackofsteph wants to eat your scrub, I ask people the same thing about lip balms,glosses, etc. and they are like "you don't eat it, ewwwwwwwww" she means will it taste bad on her lips.

I would think the baking soda doesn't taste too lovely. you could probably use just sugar instead of baking soda, but it would be sticky, clears up the taste issue though Smiley

I usually just use my toothbrush to exfoliate my lips, but this sounds better. Great Idea.

the reason I dont put just sugar in is because the sugar is a little bit too coars,  the baking soda is finer. 

once it is rubber off it totaly does not leave a taste.

What type of sugar did you use?

I used Ultra-Fine Baker's Sugar (C&H make it, so I'm sure you can get it just about anywhere) in a project similar to this. Very, very fine sugar, and I can't imagine that the grit (I'm analyzing the stuff between my fingers and typing with one hand, to bring you LIVE RESULTS!) is going to be a bother. That, and it's a whole lot better than baking soda.

Just my two cents...

thanks for the tip! I'll have to give this a shot, my lips get dry in the winter-time and season transitions.
