DIY ‘Nearly Edible’ Sugar & Honey Lip Scrub

DIY Sugar Honey Lip Scrub!

Hello Lovelies! Today I want to share a DIY lip scrub with you.Since it’s summer where I live, my lips have been getting super dry and chapped. Not only does it feel gross, but it makes wearing lipstick really hard (not to mention a bit unappealing) because of the lines and chapped skin that becomes SUPER visible after application. So I stumbled across this ‘recipe’ from The Chalk Mag and I decided to try it myself and also share this Lip scrub with you guys!

I use this lip scrub 2-3 times a week, before I shower because it does get a little oily and I don’t want to have excess oil on my skin (since I have oily skin to start with!). The ingredients that are used are super simple and you may already have all of them at home already! Not to mention, this only takes about 3 minutes to make and the only thing you have to do is mix!

Let’s get started =D

How to Make Honey Lip Scrub

Ingredients
  • 1 tbs sugar*
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Vaseline
  • Spatula/spoon to mix
  • Container for storage
Lip Scrub

* I used brown sugar because I used all my white sugar to make cupcakes the day before xD You can use any type of sugar you want; keeping in mind that the bigger the sugar crystals, the more exfoliation you will get. Though I do recommend white sugar, as I found the brown sugar a bit course and chunky on my lips.

Method

1. Mix the honey and sugar

 

2. Add Vaseline and mix well

 

3. Pour in the olive oil and mix well

 

4. Spoon the mixture into a container

DIY Home Made Lip Scrub

This time of year, lips tend to need a little bit more loving.  With the cold, dry weather, lips have a tendency to dry out and flake more easily, which is why it’s so important to take care of them in order to keep them looking soft and kissable.

In order to do this, I think there are two key steps that need to be taken – exfoliation and moisturizing.  Exfoliating is definitely an important starting point, as it’s the best way to remove chapped skin from your lips so that you have a smooth base to start with (lipstick on chapped lips = HUGE no no!).  One of the easiest ways to do this is by using a lip scrub, so I have an extremely easy recipe for one for you – check it out below.  Chances are, you already have everything you need sitting in your kitchen.

DIY Lip Scrub Recipe

Ingredients needed (please note that these are just to give you a general idea – you can adjust to whatever consistency you like) :

1 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp coconut oil (you can also use olive oil, it will achieve the same effect)

1 ½ tsp honey

IMG_0538

Combine all three ingredients and mix together until well blended and smooth.  That’s basically it!  If the coconut oil is too thick to blend easily, you can heat it up for about 10 seconds to soften it a little.  The granular brown sugar is perfect for loosening the dry skin, which the coconut oil helps to moisturize your lips even after the Lip scrub is washed off.

IMG_0541

To use this, rub a small amount into your lips using circular motions for about a minute to soften the dry skin.  To remove, you can use a warm, damp washcloth. You’ll be left with soft, moisturized lips.

IMG_0542

I’m going to suggest picking up a small jar (I got mine at Dollarama) to hold the remaining Lip scrub so you can keep using it – it will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks, so you will be able to get several uses out of it.

 

How to Make Your Own Lemon Lip Scrub

What I’m about to tell you is going to make me so irresistible to you, you’re going to want to smash through your computer screen just to kiss me. Maybe.

Folks, I have flaky lips and it is horrible. This isn’t just a winter thing it is an all year round sexy treat for my face. Nice huh? I’ve tried scrubbing them with an old toothbrush but my lips must be super fine because even the most gentle of touch with the toothbrush makes them bleed. I struggle getting lipstick to glide on because of it and it damn well looks a dry old ‘orrible mess. I want to wear bright lipstick colours and not look like my lips have a disease, damn it.

lemon lip scrub

So I looked into it and it turns out I’m not alone, lots of people have revolting lips too. Hurrah! Let’s form a union. Cosmetics companies are putting out lip scrubs and another such gubbins so we too can have super smooth lips, how nice of them. Only I’m not really prepared to pay lots of money for these products. So I made my own lemon lip scrub. Here’s how I did it –

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN LEMON LIP SCRUB

What you will need:
Juice of  1/2 a lemon
100g soft brown sugar
Runny honey
Olive oil
A bowl
Wooden spoon

DIY Honey Lemon Lip Scrub

Method:

Here is the method to make Lemon Lip scrub.
1. Put the half soft brown sugar into a bowl slowly add enough honey to mix into a firm paste – almost so it comes together in chunks.
2. Then pour in olive oil bit by bit until reaches a thin but not runny consistency.
3. Add the lemon juice and mix in very well.
4. Finish by adding the remainder of brown sugar and stirring until the paste is almost hummus like in consistency. Add more honey or oil if you feel the mixture needs it, just make sure it isn’t sloppy.You can then pack the lemon lip scrub into a small leftover pot or tin and pop in the fridge to keep it fresh.The brown sugar is just rough enough to rub off the dry skin without damaging your lips, the lemon prevents infections and the oil and honey soften your lips into kissable submission. Mwah!

Homemade Lip Scrub Tutorial…

How To Make Homemade Lip Scrub

*Warning, may cause excessive licking of lips due to deliciousness*

Hey Lovelies! Today I’m so excited to bring you a little tutorial for some Homemade Lip Scrub. I’ve literally just made it, applied it, washed it off and my lips feel so soft! It smells so delicious. This can be made for yourself, or even as a little gift.

This Homemade Lip Scrub is to be used as a little treatment, I would suggest using this homemade lip scrub once a day.

Homemade Lip Scrub
This is what the finished product looks like 😀

Super Simple Homemade Lip Scrub Recipe

You Will need:
Sugar
A little container to put in in (Old Eyeshadow pot, cleaned and disinfected.)
Vaseline (Or some sort of petrolium Jelly/Lipbalm)
Golden Syrup! (You don’t have to use this, you could just use the Vaseline & Sugar, or you could be adventurous and try chocolate sauce or something!),
A bowl
A Microwave
  (This Recipe Makes approximately 5grams of it, the average amount in an eyeshadow pot.)
Step 1: Place 2 heaped teaspoons of Sugar in a Bowl.
Step 2: Place a heaped teaspoon of Vaseline in the bowl (Rough amount shown above)
Step 3: Then add the Golden Syrup, or whatever floats your boat, into the bowl.
Step 4: Place in the Microwave for 30 seconds on it’s highest setting.
Step 5: Once its cooled down (it gets very hot,trust me, just ask my burnt fingers:) Take the bowl out of the microwave.
Step 6: Mix with a teaspoon.
It should look like this:
If not, just add more sugar if its too runny, or add more Vaseline if it’s too sugary.
Step 7: Place it all into the pot/container, and smooth over the top.
Step 8: If you want, you can get a piece of paper and make a little label. I think this makes it seem more homemade.
It may still be warm, from the microwave, so I put it in the fridge for 10 minutes, while I was making the Label. You may want to put in the fridge after using, so the Vaseline can set again, because it’s been melted.
Voila! Your Finished! This tastes super nice, and leaves a DELICIOUS after taste once you’ve washed it off 😀
To use:
1. Apply like a normal lip balm.
2. Rub into lips.
3. Leave for a couple of minutes.
4. Wash off with warm water.
5. Apply your favourite Lip Balm.
I really hope you liked reading this. It was the first time I’ve ever made any beauty product from scratch, and it was so fun! I think I might start making these as little gifts, it’s so affordable! I may start to make other little products too!

DIY Beauty: Homemade Lip Scrub for Kissable Winter Lips

How to make lip scrub at home

Protecting your lips from cold weather is important, but another way to keep your lips soft and moisturized in the chilly months is with a homemade lip scrub.

When the weather starts to get cool and dry, the first part of my body it affects is my lips. If you’re anything like me, dry lips are as much a sign of fall as changing leaves and shorter days. Dry, cold weather saps the moisture from your lips, and when that happens we end up with dead skin on top, which makes our lips looks peely and scratch. No, thank you! Check out this simple recipe for DIY lip scrub that you can make at home!

Homemade lip scrubs and Lip scrub benefits

Lip Scrub Notes

  • You can make this a vegan beauty recipe by using agave nectar in place of the honey.
  • Instead of buying a new container to store your Lip scrub, wash out an old lip balm or small container from your beauty bag, and use that instead! It’s a good excuse to check your beauty products’ expiration dates, which you should do once a year anyway.
  • If you don’t have jojoba oil handy, you can substitute olive oil, sweet almond oil, or any other carrier oil.
  • You can add soothing essential oils like lavender or sage to make this even more soothing to your skin.

Are your lips your main problem area in the winter? My knees, hands, and elbows all take a beating in cold weather. What other body parts suffer when the weather changes?

Homemade Lip Balm and Sugar Scrub

Homemade Sugar Scrub


For some Christmas gifts the last few years, I’ve made homemade lip balm and sugar scrub to give to various people.The lip balm I’ve found to be somewhat addicting and extremely moisturizing. Bottom line….it works.A lot of lip balms and lipsticks out there sold in stores contain petroleum.I’ve adopted a good rule of thumb over the years in regards to what I put on my body as well. If you can’t drink it or eat it (as in, not die from it….who would enjoy eating lip balm??), it’s probably not safe.

A good resource to look up the toxicity level in the products that you use on your body is the Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Database. You can look up virtually any product that is out there for hair, face, body, and baby. You will be amazed at the things you learn about common products you use every single day.

Did you know that your body absorbs 60% of what you put on your skin? That is a crazy number. If you put a clove of garlic between your toes, you would taste the garlic in your mouth in just a few short minutes.

The recipe I used for the lip balm was surprisingly found on Martha Stewart’s website. I liked all of the ingredients that were used so I decided to give it a go.


Homemade Lip Balm:

3 teaspoons of grated unbleached beeswax (ordered mine from Majestic Mountain Sage)
5 teaspoons of carrier oil (sunflower, avocado, jojoba) I used avocado oil…has a longer shelf life and doesn’t go rancid easily (see link below for a carrier oil resource)
6 drops of essential oil (I was going for “minty” so I used peppermint oil from Young Living)
1 teaspoon of honey

Melt the beeswax and carrier oil in the top of a double boiler. This is basically a metal bowl sitting on top of a saucepan with water boiling in the saucepan underneath the bowl. Stir really good so that the two combine. Remove from heat and add the remaining ingredients. Pour the balm into your container to cool. It will solidify back again once its cooled. I also purchased my containers from Majestic Mountain Sage.

The sugar scrub is also wonderful!

Exfoliating Sugar Scrub Lip Balm

Cane sugar naturally contains glycolic acid which is a natural alphy hyrdroxy acid that exfoliates the skin.

Farmer Jason uses this stuff on his hands and it cleans all the dirt out the nooks and crannies leaving his skin smoother….not smooth, just smoother because he has really rough hands. I love em’ though.

I adapted my recipe from this one and added a few things I knew that were good to moisturize and heal the skin.

Sugar Scrub– pictured above

50 % turbinado sugar or sugar in the raw (love the bigger sugar granules)
50 % vegetable glycerin (this can be bought at a pharmacy, I didn’t have this so I used avocado oil)
small amount of aloe vera gel
7 drops of lavender essential oil
7 drops of neroli essential oil (rejuvenates the skin and has calming effects)

Mix everything together in a bowl, and put in a jar. How simple is that???? Really!

Natural Lip Scrub – Cure for Chapped Lips

Natural Lip Scrub

Homemade Natural Lip Scrub Recipes

Got dry lips?  Many cities are still feeling the bitter cold of winter, which means dealing with harsh elements that pose some beauty issues, chapped lips in particular. You can keep your pout soft and moisturized by creating a very simple and natural lip scrub at home.

All you need are three basic ingredients, all of which are probably staples in your pantry already. Sugar exfoliates, while honey and olive oil add moisture. In fact, you can make this recipe year round as a weekly pick-me-up for your lips. And as an added bonus, no need to step out into the snow to buy it from a store!

Lip scrub ingredients

You will need sugar; I prefer brown sugar, but you could use granulated, mixed in with the honey and extra virgin olive oil. Blend all ingredients in a small container, measuring equal parts of each ingredient in your bowl. I like to make a two-use batch, so I combine about half a teaspoon of each ingredient. If you want more graininess, add in more sugar. Likewise, if you want a smoother batch, add more olive oil or honey.

Directions

Apply the mixture to the lips, and really scrub off the dead skin and dry patches. Then you can either taste the scrub left on your lips or just wipe it away. Seal in the moisture with Vaseline or a lip balm. I swear by Smith’s Rosebud Salve.

You can store any leftover scrub by covering with plastic wrap and keeping it in the fridge for a few days. You can add a multitude of ingredients to make the best scrub for you, including capsules of vitamins or essential oils for fragrance.

Here is the super simple recipe for Natural Lib Scrub

The sugar provides the exfoliating, while the oil and honey hold everything together while providing moisture and nourishment to your lips.

Exfoliate

1. Brush your lips with a soft tooth brush using a bit of water or lip balm, if that helps. Then use a non-stimulating lip balm (no peppermint or cinnamon!) for a couple days.

2. Mix a small amount of olive oil and raw sugar together and use your finger to massage it into your lips. The alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) in sugar help gently dissolve the skin-cell bonds. Don’t forget the corners!

3. Use your facial scrub. Your lips are your face, aren’t they? Apply your regular scrub in small, circular motions around the lip line to slough away dead skin and blackhead build-up.

Ingredients

1 part honey
1 part granulated sweetener
1 part olive oil

Directions

1.  Mix all ingredients together.

2.  Apply a small amount to lips.

3.  Rub gently into lips for a few seconds or up to two minutes.

4.  If time allows, let the mixture remain on lips for a minute or two.

5.  Wipe off gently with a warm, damp cloth

6.  Store the excess in a closed container.

7.  Enjoy your smooth, soft, healthier lips!

DIY Sugar Lip Scrub

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub

This week we’re turning to our friend and beauty expert Sarah Howard, of Beauty Banter, who is indulging us with her delectable brown sugar lip scrub tutorial. Inspired by one of her favoritelip polishes, Sarah recently discovered how simple it was to make her own organic version at home. The timing couldn’t be more ideal as winter’s typically unforgiving weather has us yearning for soft and smooth lips! (PS Be sure to head over to Beauty Banter for our favorite beauty products & tips!)

Sugar Lip Scrub

You’ll need:

  • pure coconut oil
  • honey
  • brown sugar
  • a teaspoon
  • a tablespoon
  • a mixing bowl
  • an empty jar or 2.5 oz baby food jar
  • labels (optional)

Make sure that the coconut oil is solid enough to scoop up but soft enough for a spoon to dig in. If the coconut oil is too oily, stick it in the fridge for 10-20 minutes. If the coconut oil is too hard, place it into a sink filled with hot water for 5-10 minutes or until soft. Combine one well-rounded tablespoon of coconut oil with one tablespoon of honey into the bowl. Besides smelling and tasting incredible, coconut oil is actually an amazing natural ingredient for skin and body products. The oil contains fatty acids and antioxidants that moisturize and nourish the skin while honey contains cleansing and healing properties and is a natural binder.

Mix the coconut oil and honey until they bind together. The consistency should look like thick honey-comb honey. Make sure to mash up all of the coconut lumps so that the mixture is clump-free. This will serve as the base of the scrub.

Add two hand packed teaspoons of brown sugar and fold it into the base. Brown sugar not only tastes fantastic, it is also a great natural exfoliant because it’s not too harsh and leaves skin soft to the touch. All of the brown sugar should be coated in the coconut oil and honey base.

Add one teaspoon of just the oil from coconut oil jar into the bowl. This will help smooth out the mixture and make the scrub extra moisturizing. Transfer the scrub from the bowl into a small jar or container.

Edible Sugar Lip Scrub

The edible Sugar Lip scrub will last up to 2 weeks if refrigerated. Before using, allow the Sugar Lip scrub to stand at room temperature for a good 10 minutes so that the formula softens a bit. Apply scrub to lips in small, circular motions for 1-2 minutes and rinse off with a warm washcloth. Congratulations – you are now armed with a soft, moisturized, and plump pout. Pucker up! xx, Sarah.
