Honey Lips

Blame it on the sun, the wind, or your dehydration.  Blame it on just about anything... chapped lips, that is.

I have a fast and affordable remedy for chapped lips, whether you get them working up a sweat or just working the day away while behind your desk.

Step 1

Find honey and a soft toothbrush that you don't use for brushing (because toothpaste leftovers may be stuck in those bristles).

If you don't have a honey bear, you should get one! (Photo credit)
Step 2

Make sure your lips are clean and dry.

Step 3

Spread a nice layer of honey on your lips.  Let it sit for at least 5 minutes, 10-15 if possible.  Resist all urges to eat the honey from your lips.  You can make it 10 minutes, you really can!

Step 4

Dampen the soft toothbrush and gently scrub the honey from your lips.  You may need to moisten the toothbrush several times to get all of the honey off.  The honey softens your lips, and the toothbrush exfoliates the lips.

Step 5

After the honey is removed and you have gently exfoliated your lips, gently blot your lips with a tissue or towel and marvel in how smooth your lips now feel!
