DIY Lip Scrub

Hey there bloggies!

Summer is getting really hot and dry around here, and I’m finding that I need something better than just lip balm to keep my lips healthy. So, I decided to make my own DIY lip scrub! :D

All you need for this DIY is three ingredients; it’s that simple! So, let’s get started!

Ingredients:

1/4 teaspoon lip balm     1 packet raw/turbinado sugar     a few drops olive oil

I used Smith’s Rosebud Salve for the lip balm, but Vaseline or Aquaphor could work just as well. I love the Rosebud Salve though because it gives a pretty rosy color and smells great!

The sugar is your average packet from a coffee shop, but be sure it’s raw/turbinado sugar to get the coarse texture so that it’ll work for scrubbing at your lips!

Your choice of oil can vary; many beauty blogs choose coconut oil for their DIYs but olive oil is much more common and handy. In a pinch, you could also use canola  or vegetable oil. Just do whatever works for you!

All you have to do is mix the three ingredients into a paste. Then, apply a generous coat to your lips and rub it around as you would an exfoliating body scrub.

When you’re done, wipe or wash off the scrub. You may need to use a strong soap to get the goopiness of the lip balm off your fingers :)

Aaaaaand…..voila! Here are your new shiny lips! Make sure to apply a coat of lip balm to seal off your hard work! I recommend using this scrub every few weeks to maintain healthy lips. Bonus: It works just as well during the summer as during the dry, cold winter! Just make sure to store extra in an airtight container to prevent ants (yuck!)…

With love,
