I have purchased lip scrubs before, but honestly didn’t think they had enough scrubbing power. The scrubbers were far and few between. I also wasn’t too fond of using a product that I felt would be harmful if swallowed. It’s just too easy to lick my lips as a natural reaction. So, I decided to try my own out of ingredients that I knew would be good enough to eat (if I so desired), and that had the right amount of exfoliation to satisfy my chapped lips. You may remember that I mentioned this lip scrub in this post about rejuvenating skincare…here’s the recipe!
- 1/4 tsp coconut oil (in solid form) benefit: natural antifungal and antibacterial properties
- 1 tsp honey benefit: natural antioxidant
- 1-2 drops pure almond extract benefit: proteins, vitamins, and seals in moisture
- 2 tsp sugar benefit: natural source of glycolic acid and natural exfoliant
Apply using the fingers and gently scrub the lips or rub your lips together. I use it for a few seconds and rinse with water. I have been storing it in a small sample jar of some other beauty product. Save those things – they can come in handy!
Have you tried any lip scrubs of your own?
