DIY Coconut Honey Sugar Lip Srub

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

The colder temperatures have arrived, making everything drier. Hands, face, lips, you name it. The perfect solution to dry lips is (obviously) a moisturizing lip balm or butter but if you're looking for some intensive care a lip scrub might be the solution! 

You can find lip scrubs/exfoliants by Fresh, Tarte, and Lush but if you'd rather save your money for something like a lipstick then try this DIY lip scrub made with around-the-house ingredients. 

What You'll Need:
  • a small clean jar
  • 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar or brown sugar (a finer grain works best so try to avoid using cane sugar)
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (or agave, if you're vegan) 
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl until well combined and place into your clean jar. That's it! 

Apply to lips every other day to remove old dry skin from your lips. You'll be able to rock those Matte lip shades again (MAC Russian Red, we're looking at you) in no time flat.
