Easy Homemade Lip Scrubs
Exfoliating your lips may be something you haven't heard of yet, and you are not alone! Exfoliating our lips gently removes dry flaky skin (dead skin cells) and in turn reveals new, smoother skin. Lip scrubs are oh so easy to make and you will find the ingredients in your pantry at home. You will need two ingredients for a basic scrub - an exfoliant and a nourishing agent. So, for example sugar + coconut oil. Here is a list of bases (nourishing agents) and exfoliants to try. As we are not using a preservative, just make enough for a single use scrub. Around a teaspoon of scrub is plenty for a one-time use.
Coconut oil, Avocado oil, Almond oil, Sunflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Olive Oil – any vegetable oil. Honey, yogurt, mashed fruit. To shop bases follow our link here.
Brown Sugar, Coconut sugar, Cocoa powder, Ground Oats, Ground Rice, Orange peel powder, Ground Rose Petals, Coffee Grounds, Ground Cinnamon and Ground Nuts.
– small bowl, teaspoon and a grinder or mortar and pestle.
1) Choose your exfoliant and measure ½- 1 teaspoon into the bowl
2) Choose your base and add ¼ to ½ of a teaspoon into the bowl
3) Mix well and you're ready to go
Massage onto the lips in a circular motion. Rinse with tepid water. Do this once a week for beautiful, smooth lips. Here are some recipes to try out!
