A DIY in 1-2-3: Sugar Lip Scrub
During these harsh winter months our faces, bodies and most of all, our lips, are dry. At least we can use scrubs and moisturizers to take away dryness on our faces and bodies, but for our lips there only seems to be balms to temporarily relieve the dryness.
I have finally found the secret to getting those smooth lips all year long – LIP SCRUBS! This product is a great way to rub off all the dead skin, and get those velvety smooth lips. LUSH, Fresh, and Sara Happ all have really great lip scrubs, but for those who are feeling crafty- it’s really simple to create your own sugar lip scrub. This is a pocket-friendly DIY project that can be created with ingredients that you probably already have in your home.
So let’s get started!
Here are the supplies you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon of granulated white sugar or brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- ½ teaspoon of olive oil
- ½ teaspoon of Vaseline or coconut oil
- A spoon to mix
- 1 small container (I used an emptied baby food jar)
Step 1: Mix the honey and sugar.
Step 2: Add the Vaseline or coconut oil to the mix, and stir well.
Step 3: Pack the mixture into container to store.
You should only use a small amount of scrub at a time, and gently rub it on to your dry lips. Scrub until some of the sugar has dissolved, and then rinse well with warm water. Top it off by applying lip balm to finish.
Ta-Da! There you have it- your very own homemade sugar lip scrub!
