For those of you who have read my blog, Fabulous Habits, you’d know that I love diving into new beauty products.

I am notorious for having dry, flaky lips – and I believe it is a mix of different factors/reasons. For instance, living in a cold, dry area definitely doesn’t help. Moreover, I am not the greatest at hydrating myself at a consistent rate – this is something I know I have to change.

I’m continuously making efforts to better my self-care routine. Drinking water more often is one of my first steps. In the meantime, my homemade lip sugar scrub helps with the process of getting my lips to a healthier state.
