Today I’m sharing a lip scrub recipe that you can make at home with kitchen staples that will easily brighten, soften, refresh and moisturize your poor winter lips. It’s been a long winter and my lips are loving this!
Best part, you have all the ingredients already. Sugar + honey + oil + scent.
Try it!! Trust me!
This isn’t just a lip scrub, this could totally be used over the whole body too!
The sugar acts as an exfoliant to smooth chapped, dry lips. The olive oil, is a super moisturizer that helps the sugar do its work. You can add any flavor combo your heart desires.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- lemon essential oil
*NOTE: If you don’t have essential oils on hand, you can always add fresh lemon juice along with a little lemon zest.
Here’s what you do:
In a small bowl combine olive oil + honey + 4 drops of lemon essential oil.
Stir in sugar. Mix until fully combined with the honey.
Pour into a mini jar and seal it till ready to use or gift to your bestie!
How to use:
Wet lips. Using a tooth-brush or wash cloth, gently massage lip scrub to your lips.
Try to leave the scrub on for 2 minutes.
Apply your normal lip moisturizer/chap stick.
What I love about this is that you can add or take away just about anything – throw in some brown sugar for a pretty look. Add a different type of oil…whatever you like 🙂
It’s also a really fun DIY gift. I even found some super cute printable tags you can print out and tie to the jar.
Your lips will feel so smooth…you will thank me 🙂
