DIY Lip Scrub

Every girl needs crack-free lips for her lipstick or lipgloss and what better way to achieve this than with your own home-made lip scrub!

Lush fresh handmade cosmetics has a variety of different options for you to choose from, which retail for about R95.00 for a 25g jar. However, not everyone has easy access to this store and therefore I decided to show you two different flavors for you to make at home.

                                                                1.Coffee lip scrub:
  • 1 teaspoon of Honey
  • 1 teaspoon of Olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons of Coffee grounds
                                                               2. Sugar lip scrub: 
  • 1 teaspoon of Honey [or olive oil/coconut oil if you don't like the sticky texture]
  • 1 teaspoon of Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of White sugar
  • A tiny drop of vanilla essence just for a sweet smell [this is optional]
Mix these ingredients in a tiny air-tight jar and apply on your lips once a week (twice at max) and scrub your lips to remove any dead skin. Once you have scrubbed your lips, let the remaining scrub on your lips for about a minute. Wash your lips after with a damp cloth and apply your favourite  lip balm after. 

I hope you enjoy these lip scrubs as much as I did!
