RTN Beauty Tips – DIY mint lip scrub

THIS homemade lip scrub will have your lips feeling soft and without the chemicals or the designer price tag.


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 drop peppermint oil


Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl until they resemble a coarse paste. Store in a glass jar or lidded container.

To apply, hold a warm flannel over lips for 3-5 minutes to soften. Slather with minty scrub and let sit for 5 minutes. Wash off with a warm flannel and apply usual lip balm. Lips will be tingly, fresh and plump.

Winter beauty care cautions

  • Avoid any skin care product containing alcohol and sodium lauryl sulphate, which can dehydrate skin.
  • Take warm showers. Hot showers may feel good, but they melt away protective skin lipids.
  • Opt for a warm mug of herbal tea. Caffeinated and alcoholic beverages dehydrate your skin.
  • After an excursion in the frigid outdoors, avoid rushing to sit in front of a roaring fire. Temperature extremes stress skin.
  • Apply moisturizer at least 30 minutes to an hour before heading outdoors. Moisturizers containing a lot of water can freeze on skin.
