DIY Lip Scrub for the Cooler Months Ahead

I’m not sure what it is, but every time I travel I get some sort of cold. I left on a red eye flight to NYC on Wednesday for the Latinos in Social Media conference and spent my short time there with the feeling that something was coming on. I was perfectly fine, felt healthy and energetic enough to venture into my old stomping grounds of the Big Apple. The first night there, I started to feel a sore throat. The following morning, my nose was stuffed, my lips were chapped (not a good look when all you packed was red lipstick) and I had a horrible headache. Yep, I was sick! I felt very self-conscious meeting so many people for the first time, especially with chapped lips that I tried to remedy with chap stick to no avail. As soon as I got home I went the honey route. It’s such a great way to get rid of dryness and redness. It always works.

For the upcoming cold months ahead, here’s a DIY Lip Scrub that’s sure to keep your lips moisturized. I will also be sure to pack this little beauty trick next time I travel!
