DIY: Home made Lip Scrub

Hi Lovlies! Here's a quick tutorial for you all. 
It's been awfully cold these past few days and I've been road testing lip products so I needed to do something about my chapped lips. I thought why not do my own lip scrub. So here's a tutorial for you guys.. It's quick, easy and everything can be found in your kitchen.

Let's start!

What you'll need:
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. Pure Vitamin E Oil (you can also use Olive Oil)

The basic components of a lip scrub is:
Honey is a natural substance used to cure dryness and irritation. It has anti bacterial properties to prevent inflammation and is also great for hydrating the lips. It will bind your mixture together making it more effective.

Sugar is great for exfoliating. The tiny particles help get rid of dead skin and other impurities. When mixed with honey, it become smoother to lather. 

For added moisture and skin benefits:
Vitamin E Oil is great for intense skin repair. It's also a good moisturizing agent that will help cure your chapped lips.

Olive oil is a great natural oil that helps repair and moisturize the skin. It's great for making masks and scrubs. Read more of its beauty benefits here.

I ended up using Vitamin E oil because I don't have any olive oil at the moment. You can add in other elements which you think could moisturize or repair your lips like Aloe Vera gel or Petroleum Jelly.

  1. Mix Everything together. It should have a sticky consistency.
  2. Apply to the lips and scrub with a circular motion.
  3. Leave it for about a minute for the lips to be able to absorb the mixture's goodie benefits.
  4. Wash off the mixture and pat lips to dry with a napkin.
  5. Apply your favorite lip balm.
Viola! Perfectly smooth lips. Hope this helps all chapped lips out there ☺

Go be beautiful Bellas!
