Soothe and Smooth Your Kisser with
DIY Lip Scrub
DIY Lip Scrub is easy, affordable, and a great way to save money, take care of yourself, and reduce packaging waste. Most scrubs have only 3-4 easy ingredients which are likely already in your kitchen. You can make these scrubs in just minutes!
emollients & exfoliants
Emollients are substances that help moisturize skin. They seal moisture in and offer healing properties. Exfoliants provide mild abrasion - the scrub aspect.
commercial vs diy
For me it comes down to a number of factors: cost, ingredients, and packaging. In striving to create less waste, a homemade scrub is pretty much going to win the contest every time.
Coconut Oil Sugar Lavender or Peppermint Oil
put it together & use
To make, soften coconut oil. Stir in the sugar. Add optional oil. Mix gently until well-blended. To use, apply a small amount to your lips and massage in. Leave on for 5 minutes, and remove with a warm cloth.
How long will my homemade lip scrub last? If you don't use it all up, it will last up to 6 months in the fridge.
Should I use my lip scrub every day? Though tempting, it can actually do the opposite of what you want and dry your lips out. So use it no more than 2-3 times a week for best results.
