I’ve been wanting to do a homemade beauty treatment for some time now, but I was a little weirded out by putting food on my face or in my hair. This lip scrub is perfect because what better place is there to put food if it’s not going in your mouth? Lips are the next best thing!
I am a chapstick FAH-reak and I have a tube in every pocket, purse, or drawer, but this winter has still taken a toll on my lips. I’ve been craving a good scrub, but couldn’t handle spending the money on something I knew I could make at home for pennies.
All you need are three simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry:
1/4 tsp olive oil
1 tsp brown sugar (you can also use white)
1/2 tsp honey
I only made a small amount for myself (the above will last me 4-5 scrubs), but you can adjust the recipe accordingly if you need to.
Put all the ingredients together and stir with a toothpick until blended.
Rub a pea-sized amount onto lips and scrub lightly. Wipe off with a wet cloth or, since it’s totally edible and delicious, lick your lips! Guess which one I chose?
I couldn’t believe how soft my lips felt after using this! It was hours before I felt like I needed to pull out my trusty lip balm, and even then my lips still felt so smooth. I’m definitely a believer and can’t wait to eat…I mean try…more make-at-home beauty treatments!
