DIY Lip Scrub: Give Your Pout A Refresh!

Fall and winter bring drier weather and chapped lips. There are plenty of companies selling lip exfoliators and scrubs that work well, but they cost a pretty penny! So instead save your coin for a more important beauty expenditure (like a trip to the salon) and make your own lip scrub. We’ve got a great recipe that you can whip up in minutes for pennies.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tsp Coconut Oil (If you don’t have coconut oil you can use olive or almond oil, but coconut has antifungal and antibacterial properties that make it better for storing).
  • 1/4 Tsp Honey
  • 2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
  • Stirrer For Mixing
  • Plastic or Glass Jar For Storage

Directions: 

  1. Warm up the coconut oil in a microwave or on the stove so that it liquifies  and will mix easier.
  2. Pour the coconut oil, honey and brown sugar into a jar or container with a capacity of around 1/4 cup.
  3. Mix to combine the ingredients.
  4. Wet your lips and using a clean finger apply some scrub and gently exfoliate the skin on your lips.
  5. Rinse with warm water and apply your favorite balm.
  6. Store in the jar with a tight lid.

This scrub is super tasty and easy to make, and will have your lips looking fresh in no time flat. Oh and the scrub would make a really cute and simple christmas gift for friends! You can get creative with the packaging and even add an essential oil for fragrance.
