Soothe Sore Lips

Sore lips that have taken a toll from the summer sun, salt water and chlorine, or the wind and cold that winter brings, need some extra TLC.  No one likes the feeling of dry, sore lips, plus it makes it really difficult to wear that great new lipstick you just bought. So, we have a quick tip that will keep your lips smooth and soft, perfect for that new shade or, for that first date that went better than expected.


Start with a pinch of sugar.


Add a squeeze of honey.


Now spread the mixture all around your lips.  I know, you’re going to be tempted to lick your lips or grab your favorite sweet cocktail, but you must resist. This is a potion for your lips, not your taste buds.


Using a small circular motion, gently rub the mixture around your lips covering the inner and outer area. Do this for about 2 minutes, but do it gently so you don’t irritate your sore lips.

Rinse your hands and face with warm water to remove the honey/sugar combo. Your lips will immediately feel smooth and super hydrated! It’s the result of the exfoliation from the sugar and moisture and healing properties of the honey.

For extra smoothness, add a layer of your favorite lip balm.  I personally like Smith’s Rosebud Salve. For best results, repeat this process every two days or so.

Anytime of the year can wreak havoc on our skin. But, we don’t have to just live with it. Hopefully, this quick home remedy will help you keep your lips kissable, pretty and soft.
