DIY Homemade Natural Lip Scrub

By Dana Fox

In the cooler months, your lips can take a beating. For me, my lips are always cracked or chapped or some combination of the two.

I was standing around my kitchen this weekend and thought I might give making a natural lip scrub a try, and was pretty happy with the results so I decided to share!  Not only does this not contain any harsh chemicals, but it tastes so good! I don’t recommend you eat it (I mean, you could if you really wanted to, haha…), but I just thought I’d put that out there!


INGREDIENTS:
1 TSP of Brown Sugar
1 TSP of White Sugar
1 TSP of Honey
1/2 TSP of Olive Oil

Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. You can add more or less of some ingredients to get the consistency how you like.

The sugars work to exfoliate dead or dry skin. The white sugar is slightly more rough due to the larger granules, so I thought a combination of the two worked well. If you have a little container handy, fill it up and store it for later!

TO USE:
Apply the scrub to your lips and massage it around for about 20 seconds or so. Wipe off for instantly smoother lips!

Brown Sugar: Has anti-bacterial properties and vitamin B.
White Sugar: Naturally draws moisture into the skin, is a natural AHA that encourages cell turnover (for younger looking skin!), natural source of glycolic acid which can help sun-damaged skin.
Honey: A natural source rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Absorbs and retains moisture.
Olive Oil: Full of vitamins, minerals, and proteins. Acts as a natural moisturizer. Has regenerative powers to help simulate the healing of skin.

So there you have it! An incredibly fast and easy beauty remedy with ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen cupboard. Enjoy!

  • Jenn Haines

    Try agave instead of honey you may have to adjust the amount of each ingredient since agave is generally thinner then honey
