How to make a lip scrub

diy lip scrub

I don’t think I stand alone when I say that there’s nothing better than a good D.I.Y that takes no longer than a minute to put together! So for this weeks second post, I thought I’d show you all how to make a lip scrub at home!

Why should you use a lip scrub?

A lip scrub is one of the things that you could use to exfoliate your lips! If you’d like, you could simply brush your lips with a tooth brush after brushing your teeth, but if you’d like to make your beauty routine a bit interesting, you could go on ahead and use this recipe to make your own lip scrub at home!

What you need to make a lip scrub:

1. 1 tbs  Olive oil

2. 1 tbs Honey

3. 2-3 tbs Sugar

4. A clean bowl and spoon

5. Damp face towel

6. Empty jar (optional)

7. Your beautiful lips!

How to put the lip scrub together:

1. Put the Olive oil, honey and sugar into a bowl.

2. Mix the ingredients until you get a pasty mixture as pictured below


3. Using your index finger rub some of the mixture onto your lips for about 30 seconds.

You should already feel a difference at this stage!

4. Using your towel, wipe your lips and repeat the process this time rubbing it for a lot longer (1 -2 mins)

5. Again, use your towel to remove the lip scrub and voila!

6. If you’re a bit of a hoarder, you could put the rest of the lip scrub into an empty jar but make sure you get the full use of it, if not, it will only get hard and go to waste.

Note: Regularly exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub helps remove old and dead skin cells on your lips so over time your lips will become more moist and naturally plump

(Vote no to dry and chapped lips!)

    Such a great lip scrub to make those lips perfectly kissable. I always forget I have what I need at home to make DIY beauty products. Thanks for sharing.

    My daughter is always making her own DIY beauty supplies. I will definitely share this with her. I had no idea that lip scrubs were even something to use! I’ll have to give it a try.

    This sounds wonderful, and so easy to make! I’ve wanted to get a lip scrub for ages – such as the Sara Happ ones – but could never bring myself to justify the price. This fits the bill perfectly however, and handy ingredients to get in (though I’m pretty certain I have them all in the cupboard somewhere anyway), I must try it now! Love your blog, subscribing now – and going to follow you on Instagram now! :))
