Happy Friday Eve! Today, we’re leaving for our yearly lake trip. My best friend’s parents have a lake house in Livingston (outside of Houston), and we make a trip out there every summer. I think this is the 5th year we’ve gone. It’s definitely something I look forward to every year. I’ll be sure to post pics next week!
Today I’m sharing my DIY recipe for daily lip scrub! I think one of the things that people neglect the most is their lips – from sun protection to just overall daily care. This lip scrub will help to heal dry lips and make them super soft! This is a lip scrub that you can use daily, since the ingredients are natural and not harsh on the skin. You can even use this on your face if you want.
What you’ll need:
- 1 Tablespoon
- Small bowl
- Small jar
- Raw honey
- Coconut oil
- Brown sugar
How to make it:
- Add 1 tbsp of honey and 1 tbsp of coconut oil into a small bowl. Make sure the coconut oil is solidified enough to scoop. If it is liquified, put the coconut oil in the fridge until it has hardened up a bit and you are able to scoop it out.
- Mix the coconut oil and the honey until it is completely combined.
- Add in the brown sugar and mix until combined.
- Add mixture to small jar and put in the fridge for 15-30 minutes to allow it to harden a bit.
When you’re ready to use, gently massage the scrub into lips for 1-2 minutes. This is key. Then rinse off with warm water or a damp wash cloth.
That’s it! This recipe is super easy and it works soo well. I was thinking of keeping the scrub in the fridge at all times, but I found that this makes it too hard, so I’ve just been leaving it at my bedside. My house is pretty cold, so it stays at the perfect consistency.
Why this works:
Honey: loaded with antioxidants and healing properties, which helps with dry skin and aging.
Coconut Oil: anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, which helps to heal the skin. It’s also one of the best natural moisturizers out there.
Brown Sugar: a very gentle exfoliator because of the soft, small particles. It scrubs away dead skin cells, making your lips (and skin) super soft and healthy.
I hope you guys like this easy recipe! Let me know in the comments if you try it and how you like it!
