Today I’m finally going to be sharing my go-to DIY lip scrub recipe. If you are anything like me and you have chapped lips all.the.time then this recipe is definitely for you! I discovered this recipe quite a while ago and I altered it lil’ bit to make it more amazing and I really hope that you all like it!
Oh, and you know the best part about this recipe? It can be done made in under three minutes and it’s really really easy too!
- Sugar- 1 tablespoon
- Coconut oil-1 teaspoon (you could also substitute this with olive oil or even honey)
- Vanilla Essence or Extract.
- Pink or Red food colouring (optional)
- A Container
- Mix together the oil and sugar.
- Then add in vanilla extract (or any other flavoring of your choice) along with a couple of drops of food coloring. (For a little pop of colour or tint after using the lip scrub!)
- Mix it all together, pop it into a container and then you are done!
If you want to, you can decorate your container as well,I used a bit of washi tape and a couple of letter stickers to make mine a bit more unique and fun!
I absolutely adore this lip scrub and I hope that you do too! It was honestly a life-saver because at some point my lips had gotten so chapped that I could barely even smile without suppressing a grimace of pain. It was awful.
I’d recommend using this with a toothbrush (I know it sounds weird but, hey, it works!) and sort of using it to brush your lips? (With the lip scrub, of course!) It’s actually one of the most effective ways to use it as well haha..you could use your fingers too,of course, but this was just the easiest and the quickest way to do it!
Oh,and you can always feel free to experiment with new flavors and combinations! I made Nutella lip balm a while ago and I can definitely customize this recipe to make a Nutella lip scrub too! You can be as wild and creative as you’d like!
Okay, now I’m dying to know: if you could make a lip scrub or a lip balm in any flavor or combination (go as crazy as you’d like), what would it be?? I think I would probably make something that smells like chocolate but looks like a rainbow. (Rainbow chocolate? Hmmm)
Oh, and do you have chapped lips too? If so,how do you deal with it? I’d love to know!
