My lips tend to get very dry and chapped, and it’s difficult for me to find a product that keeps them looking soft and moisturized… so I made my own! This easy lip scrub tutorial will show you how to mix up coconut oil with a few other ingredients to create a luxurious lip scrub that will keep your lips looking lovely all year long.
Here’s what you’ll need for this project:
- 1 tablespoon raw sugar
- 1 tablespoon fine white sugar
- 1 teaspoon raw manuka honey
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1-2 drops orange essential oil
- Small plastic container
Mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl until thoroughly combined. You’ll probably need to scrape the sticky mixture off of the spoon a few times to be able to continue mixing.
Once everything is well combined, use a spoon to scoop the mixture out into a small plastic container in which you will store your lip scrub.
And that’s it! Now it’s time to test out your homemade scrub. Use your fingers to apply it to your lips, rubbing it in circular motions to loosen 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 also further exfoliating). Finish with a coat of your favorite lip balm to seal in the moisture.
This lip scrub smells amazing, and because it’s all natural, you don’t have to worry too much if you get a bit in your mouth. The coconut oil has many minerals that are beneficial to your skin, while the honey has antibacterial properties. So not only are you making your lips more soft and kissable, but you’re also making them healthier!
