DIY Lip Scrub

It only takes a few minutes to make and use, but sometimes it is the only thing that can help your lips. Thankfully chances are you’ll have all the ingredients already in your kitchen.

What will you need?

  1. Sugar
  2. Honey
  3. Olive Oil

Usually I put them in, in that order. I won’t give exact amounts because there’s a lot of room to experiment and see the consistency you prefer. If you add a lot of sugar and a little olive oil then it will be thicker. One thing I will say is not to make it too runny because it kind of kills the exfoliation. Rubbing olive oil and honey with a few grains of sugar on your lips won’t get rid of the dead skin. So somewhere in between soupy and dry/sugary you’ll find the right consistency.You don’t need a lot of this, just about a quarter amount. You don’t need to layer it on, a little goes a long way.I’ve seen some variations on this recipe, one I remember with sea salt, if you want feel free to add it in, but I found it to be too drying. It reminded me of after going in the ocean when your lips kind of pucker without you controlling it.

Generally I use it once a month or so, it’s more when I feel I need it. It’s nice because there’s not a big preparation involved. When using the scrub you can be pretty gentle because the sugar does the job for you. When you’re done just use a warm, wet washcloth to remove it. Afterwards you’ll want to use Vaseline or something along those lines.

You’ll find the next day your lipstick goes on smoother and there isn’t any dried or hardened skin to be found.
