If there is one thing that is consistent during the winter months, is the general feeling of dry lips or skin. Tell me if I’m wrong! Every winter, I run to my local Superdrug’s or Savers to stock up on lips balms and oils to restore ANY type of moisture to my lips. But it’s never enough… Until I started to incorporate lip scrubs to my routine.
Homemade lip scrubs and body scrubs, is something that me and my family used to always DIY ourselves. Mixing oils with a grainy ingredient to scrub away dead skin. However, as I got older I kinda got lazy and stopped. I started purchasing lip scrubs from stores, of which I’m sure are not all natural and have a bunch of preservatives.
The DIY lip scrub that you will find below is a very popular choice. It’s super easy, cheap to make and can last you a while, if properly preserved. Another great thing, is that you can use it all over your body, even your feet.
So, if you want smooth and moisturised lips in quick and easy steps, then look no further! This DIY lip scrub with honey is bound to make your lips super soft and moisturised, specially during the harsh winter months. And all you’ll need are 2 ingredients! That is right, you will only need 2 ingredients and you’ll have smoother and softer lips in less than 5 minutes with this lip exfoliant!
- 2 teaspoons of Sugar
- 1 teaspoon of Honey
Get a small container of choice, I personally like to use the small travel containers as they are usually cheap and can be reused. However, you are free to use glass containers too if you want to be fancy.
If this DIY lip scrub with honey isn’t for a one time use, make sure that your container has a lid so that you can preserve your lip scrub for multiple uses.
First, add your sugar to your container, then proceed to add the honey. Mix it up with a spoon and there you go! You have your lip scrub!
If the mixture is too grainy for you then you may add more honey. But do keep in mind you should always strive to have more sugar than honey for have a good exfoliant effect. But of course, you may manipulate the consistency to your liking.
More good news is that this DIY lip scrub can last up to a month! Use it once or a maximum of twice per week to upkeep your lips moisture and smoothness. Just make sure to store it in a cool and dry place.
You also can use this scrub all year round. For glowing and smooth skin in the summer time, and flawless moisture skin or lips during winter.
