DIY Lip Scrub - Homemade Recipe & Ingredients
Recently, I made my own version of a lip scrub, since I have been using it, my lips have been feeling great. I decided to also share this recipe with everyone. It is easy to make and the ingredients are affordable. I would be using measurements but you can work it so that it fits you.
- Brown Sugar - this is good for exfoliating, (2 tablespoons).
- Coconut Oil - this is good for moisturizing the lips, (1 tablespoon).
- Organic Honey - This contains healing properties, (1 tablespoon).
- Bowl and spoon for mixing the ingredients
- Small jar or container to put the mixture.
STEP 1: Mix in a clean bowl using a spoon. Mix 1 tablespoon of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of honey until one can get a thick and smooth consistency. Make sure the coconut oil you are using is solid.
STEP 2: Add two tablespoon of brown sugar to the mix of coconut oil and honey. Mix until you get the desired scrub consistency you want. You can add more sugar if you feel it does not have that scrub consistency.
STEP 3: After making the lip scrub, one has to keep it small jar or container to use for future purposes. It is good to make in small batches and also good to keep in the fridge. It can last for two weeks if properly refrigerated.
HOW TO APPLY - Before using it, remove from the fridge and let it sit for about two to three minutes. Apply a generous amount on your lips, rub in a circular motion, then leave it on the lip for 1-2 minutes. You can either rinse it or use a wash cloth to wipe it. Apply your favorite lip balm when done.
