This dry winter weather and the dryness caused by heaters have resulted with my lips being dry and flaky.
I’ve looked around at purchasing a lip scrub but was not a fan of the prices! This inspired me to learn how to make my own. Why purchase something when you can make your own?!
This Sugar Lip Scrub only contains three ingredients:
- One part brown sugar
- One part coconut oil
- Quarter part honey
In a double boiler, I warmed the coconut oil until it liquified.
Once liquified, I poured it into a bowl and added the brown sugar and honey. Let the mixing begin!
After mixing, I placed the bowl in the refrigerator to allow the coconut oil to harden. This takes about 10 minutes at most!
Then I took the bowl out and mixed again. After I reached the consistency that I liked, I placed into my container.
Try to be creative with your container. I recycled an old tea tin as my container! This has allowed me to save money and avoid waste.
I love the results! When I apply the scrub on at night (this is now a new night ritual), I massage my lips to exfoliate and lightly pat the sugar away with a towel. You don’t want to fully wipe away because the coconut oil and honey are a natural lip balm!
I hope this inspires you to make your own lips scrub!
