Crusty dry lips are gross. Lush makes a really nice lip scrub. But since I discovered that it’s so easy to make it at home, I’m no longer willing to pay Lush’s price.
There are many variations of the sugar lip scrub that you can make at home.
Ingredients (for single use)
- 1 tablespoon of sugar, brown or white
- 1 tablespoon of honey, or coconut oil, or olive oil, or even maple syrup
- 1 drop of vanilla extract (optional)
Combine the sugar with the honey or oil. If it’s too dry, add a bit more of the liquid ingredient. Stir in the vanilla. To make a reusable amount, scale up the ingredients and use a small glass jar or another sealed container. Stores in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
There are many ways to flavor this mixture to your liking. Add peppermint essential oil, or cinnamon for an extra kick.
