It’s easy to make your own homemade lip scrub, and with fancy and expensive exfoliator products everywhere in the market today, doing your own homemade lip scrub has also become a must. At least if you want to save on dollars and use natural ingredients at the same time. Homemade lip scrub will help you achieve smoother, softer lips, less the high tag price associated with lip exfoliator products today.
The ingredients for a homemade lip scrub can be anything from sugar and salt to coffee and chocolate. The addition of natural oils like olive oil is done so as to make the mixture complete with a moisturizing agent. The oil will not only moisturize your lips, it will also create a thin layer that will protect your lips from the heat or cold. The base and the oil are the basic ingredients of a homemade lip exfoliator. The others are just added for flavor, variety or for aroma.
As a general rule, the ingredient used as a base, such as sugar and coffee, should always measure more than the oil. Some people like to use salt instead of sugar, so if you prefer your scrub to be salty instead of sweet, simply substitute sugar ingredients to salt in the homemade lip scrub recipes below. It’s easy to make them, just mix everything well and voila! You’ll have a nice homemade lip scrub of your own.
With a homemade lip scrub, exfoliating your lips will be so easy! To use the scrub, apply and scrub on your lips with either a toothbrush or a small piece of washcloth. Remember to apply a lip balm or a lip moisturizer after.
