I’m not sure about you guys, but this cold winter weather make my lips all dry, chapped and cracked! And in order for my lips to survive this harsh winter (aside from drinking lots water of course) is to exfoliate, exfoliate and exfoliate!! So in today’s post I’ll share with you my homemade lip scrub that anyone can make by just using 2 basic ingredients, which are sugar and oil.
As you could tell from the title, my homemade lip scrub is coconut based. Hence, I’ve used the following(ingredients):
- Coconut sugar – For the color and taste.
- Coconut oil – Melted, but solid is okay as well.
- Granulated(white )sugar – This is not necessary to add to the mixture, but compared to coconut sugar I find the texture of white sugar rougher and coarse, which scrubs off the dead skin more effectively.
- Cosmetic containers (small) – To put the scrub mixture in.
So once the ingredients are in place, combine them all together (coconut sugar, white sugar and coconut oil) and place the mixture in a small cosmetic container. You could also make a large amount at once and store it in a jar, which will last longer obviously. Also, you don’t necessarily have to melt the coconut oil, but you can leave it in its solid state. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t; It all depends on my mood.
By the way, this coconut sugar scrub can be used for your entire body, and not just for your lips alone.
And that’s pretty much it. This is how I make my coconut sugar lip scrub. It’s super duper easy to make, edible and has a super sweet taste as well, but since it’s sugar I wouldn’t eat it too often if I were you. 😉
