How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip Scrub

How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip ScrubRaise your hand if you have cracked, chapped flaky dry lips? Yup, not a pretty image, but it’s the reality are lips are facing thanks to the brutal cold winter. Harsh cold temperatures and winds, do a lot of damage to our skin, especially our lips. And my lips are notorious for being so chapped, cracked and flaky during winter, even a simple nude lipstick or balm can’t cover it up. My solution, is to use a all natural lip scrub I make with ingredients you have in your cupboards every evening. Since I’m headed on vacation at the end of the month, I needed to give my lips some love with this indulgent DIY scrub, and I’m sure you do too.How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip ScrubYesterday, I shared the beauty products I love, but it’s the natural diy masks and scrubs I make at home that I often rely on for common seasonal beauty problems. While we take extra care of skin with oils, lotions, and masks, our lips often get overlooked. People also tend to lick their lips, drying them out even more, which I’m totally guilty of. What’s even worse, when they are chapped, instead of letting them, be I will bite and pick the dead skin off. FAIL!

This lip scrub, made with coconut oil, raw turbinado and brown sugars, honey and a few drops of argan oil, is extremely nourishing for parched winter lips. You can mix it together in less than five minutes, and reap the benefits until Spring begins to emerge once again. I make enough to fill a small jar, and use it every night. It really does make your lips feel silky smooth, like any luxurious product would. How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip ScrubExfoliating with a natural scrub, removes the top layer of skin often left dry from the suns and cold temperature, exposing a new soft lip allowing your favorite lip balm and lipsticks to go on smoother. How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip Scrub

Before each use, allow the scrub to sit out and soften up before applying to your lips. Using a heaping teaspoon, apply the scrub to your lips in a circular motion.

Transfer your lip scrub into a glass container with lid, preferably one that is airtight. Label the jar, adding the date so you can keep track of how long you’ve had it. I prefer making small batches because homemade cosmetics lack the preservatives that make them last long, but if refrigerated or kept in a dark cool place {not into your bathroom} this lip scrub lasts up to two weeks.How To: All Natural Exfoliating Lip ScrubOn a side note, wouldn’t these make for the loveliest and most luxurious favors for a winter bridal shower!!
