While many people know of the importance to use a scrub on their skin, like arms and legs, or even their face, they often forget about their lips. Your lips also need a good scrub, which removes dead skin cells and leaves behind soft, plump lips. The following lip scrubs are easy to make and use just a few simple natural ingredients.
Raspberry Lemonade Lip Scrub
This is a really fun lip scrub that you can make for yourself or give it to someone else as a gift. To turn it into a raspberry lemonade scrub, all you need is a single serving packet of drink mix in this flavor. If all you can find is strawberry lemonade, go ahead and use that! Then you want to add some white table sugar, coconut oil, and essential oils you think to compliment the scent. This can be lemon or another fruity essential oil. Combine them together and store in a small container.
Coconut and Sugar Lip Scrub
Another lip scrub that you can try out once again uses coconut oil, but it is going to use brown sugar instead of regular white sugar. This gives it a fun texture and flavor for your lips. With the coconut oil, make sure you are using organic, unrefined coconut oil. This is the most natural form and will be best for moisturizing your lips. If you don’t have brown sugar, there is no reason you can’t use white sugar instead. Combine the ingredients and scrub your lips with the mixture, then rinse off. You can store the excess in an airtight container.
Lemon Lip Scrub
Lemon tends to be a favorite for most salt or sugar scrubs, including a nice lip scrub. The reason sugar is used for these scrubs is that if you have chapped lips, salt can be much too harsh. For the lemon lip scrub, use white table sugar with some lemon essential oil and a little coconut oil. This is one of the easiest lip scrubs to make. You of course can go further and customize it with other oils or essential oils, as well as using brown sugar if you prefer the softer texture to regular white sugar.
Lip scrubs are among the easiest DIY natural beauty products to make and are perfect for the summertime. Experiment with your own combinations and see which one you like best.
