Fix those lips with this botanical mix

lips

Repair for dry lips can be found by mixing 1/4 tsp oil (olive or grapeseed works best), a pinch of salt and 1/8 tsp sugar. Apply to lips and cut an orange in half (not lengthwise but against the segments). Apply remainder of mixture to the orange. Gently press the orange to closed lips and twist the mixture covered orange over the lips gently for a few minutes to exfoliate. Rinse and follow with lip mask. For lip mask, mix 1/4 tsp sour cream, 1/4 tsp honey, 1/2 tsp oatmeal flour, 1/8 tsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp dry milk, and a few drops of orange juice. Apply to lips. Remainder can also be used on face or other dry areas. Before bed, cover lips with Vaseline to lock in moisture.
