D I Y – Lip Exfoliatiting Scrub
I wanted to share a recipe for a homemade beauty product, that I found on Pinterest a few years ago – the lip exfoliating scrub. It is so good, easy to make, inexpensive and doesn’t include any chemicals. All you need is brown sugar, coconut oil or honey, vanilla extract and a small container. I like to use these cute glass containers from Søstrene Grene. It makes it look very luxurious. You can get similar at almost any hobby store.
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 1/2 – 2 tablespoons of coconut oil or honey
- 1 drop of vanilla extract
Mix all of the ingredients in a cup or a small bowl. When the sugar gets a sticky consistency it is done. You now have your own homemade lip scrub. Pour it in a small container and go on and test the product. Scrub it gently onto your lips and let it sit for about 30 seconds to a minute. Rinse it of and put on a lip balm. Remember to never overdo the exfoliation, as the lips are very sensitive. About 1 (2 tops) time a week will do the work.
This homemade lip exfoliating scrub will do perfect as a gift for a friend, your mother or anyone you know that really appreciates a good product or homemade gift. So instead of buying flowers or chocolate, maybe next time you will show up with a homemade gift in hand.
