Dry, chapped lips are the worst. For one thing, it’s hard to smile when your lips are cracking. Not to mention how difficult it is to pull of your favorite lipstick. Chapped lips are just not a good look. And while there’s not much you can do to change dry, cold weather, there is something you can do to save your lips. In fact, these three DIY sugar scrubs will give you luscious lips no matter what the season.
Coconut and Honey Lip Scrub
You don’t have to break the bank to make this scrub. In fact, you probably already have the three ingredients you need: honey, coconut oil and sugar. Just mix one tablespoon of both coconut oil and honey together, until they’re smooth and blended.
Then, add two tablespoons of sugar. If the consistency is still too rough, you can gradually add water so it’s less rough for your lips.
Flavored Lip Scrub
For this yummy scrub, you’ll need your go-to lip balm, some petroleum jelly and sugar. All you need to do is mix a small amount of petroleum jelly, sugar and a small amount of your lip balm together in a bowl.
The petroleum jelly is soothing, the sugar scrubs away dead skin cells and your lip balm adds a familiar flavor and a tint of color to your homemade lip scrub. Try it for an Instagram-worthy product as well as the perfect pout.
Minty Almond Lip Scrub
This scrub smells (and tastes) so good, you’ll want to eat it. But save it for your lips! Here’s why. Sweet almond oil nourishes and hydrates the skin, and peppermint essential oil helps to wake up your lips. It’s quick, easy and all-natural, so it’s something you can feel good about using.
