My lips tend to get dry and chapped, and it’s hard for me to find a product that softens and moisturizes them… so I make my own! This easy lip scrub tutorial will show you how to mix coconut oil with a few other ingredients to create a luxurious lip scrub that will keep your lips beautiful all year round.
Here’s what you need for DIY Lip Scrub:
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar
- 1 tablespoon of fine white sugar
- 1 teaspoon raw manuka honey
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- 1-2 drops of orange essential oil
- Small plastic container
How to prepare Lip Scrub:
Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl until completely combined. You may need to scrape the sticky mixture off the spoon a few times to keep mixing.
When everything is well mixed, use a spoon to scoop the mixture into a small plastic container where you will put your lip scrub.
And that’s it! Now is the time to try your homemade scrub. Use your fingers to apply it to your lips, rubbing it in circular motions to remove any dead skin. Leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes if you can. Use a paper towel or washcloth to remove the mixture (while further exfoliating). Finish with a coat of your favorite lip balm to seal in moisture.
This lip scrub smells amazing, and since it’s all natural, you don’t have to worry too much if you end up with a little bit in your mouth. Coconut oil contains many minerals that are beneficial for your skin, while honey has antibacterial properties. So not only are you making your lips softer and kissable, but you’re also making them healthier!
