People continue to ask me what’s the best brand when it comes to exfoliating the lips and my answer is still the same- YOU. I wrote an article about a year ago discussing products that you are wasting money purchasing retail, because you can make them yourself, or find cheaper alternatives and lip scrubs were at the top of my list.

Lip scrubs contain two important ingredients- Sugar for exfoliation, and some type of oil for moisture. You can’t mix sugar and oil together? Need help? Check out three recipes that I came up with to scrub the dry away,and give you soft, kissable lips.

Note:  If you need more powerful exfoliation, use baking soda instead of sugar. Though baking soda is finer, it tends to exfoliate better than sugar, but can also be a tad more harsh.  Jazz up your scrub with essential oils for scent or vanilla extract for flavor.

Basic Lip Scrub

1 teaspoon of white sugar

few drops of olive oil

mix, scrub, exfoliate, enjoy!

Honey Kisses Lip Scrub

1 tablespoon of white sugar

1 tablespoon of raw honey

few drops of vanilla extract.

Mix, let it sit on your lips for about 15 minutes, scrub away, enjoy!

Coconut Kisses Lip Scrub

1 tablespoon of brown sugar

two teaspoons of coconut oil

1 teaspoon of honey

Mix, scrub, enjoy!

If you decide to make any of these scrubs, chances are you will have plenty left over so just store it in a little airtight container and pop it in the fridge. Enjoy!
