DIY Lip Scrub: The perfect solution for dry flaky lips. 

posted on: February 1, 2017

Valentines day is right around the corner and nobody wants crusty dusty lips, right? Winter weather and especially wind can be harsh on your lips. While you’ve heard me talk about the best things to moisturize your lips.  There are times when your lips need a little extra TLC in the hydration department. If you’ve ever tried to put on lipstick on dry and peeling lips, you know it’s a recipe for disaster. There is a simple, fun and inexpensive way to get your lips kissably soft again in no time.

Check out my recipe for DIY lips scrub. Takes less than 5 minutes to make and would be an great Valentines gift for someone you think is pretty awesome.

DIY Sugar Lip Scrub 

Sugar (regular, raw, or brown) 2 tbsp
Coconut Oil 1 tsp
Almond Oil 1 tsp
Food Coloring 1 drop (optional)
… or you can just eyeball it 🙂
Small glass containers like ones found here
Mix all ingredients together until well blended. If you like a more grainy consistency use more sugar. Apply a small amount to your lips and scrub until the sugar dissolves completely. Gently wipe off. Use 3 times a week or as needed. Make sure to moisturize your lips after you exfoliate them. This will get you the best results. While this stuff is not intended to be eaten, it is very safe and perfectly edible (I definitely caught Elle dipping her little finger in these jars a few times)
