Most likely, you already have these ingredients in your kitchen cupboard. Instead of buying expensive and chemical laden products at the drugstore, why not whip up your own batch of 100% natural lip scrub!
Here's what you need:
Brown Sugar - it's a natural humectant, which means that moisture will be drawn out of the air and into your lips
Coconut Oil - it's a moisturizer that also contains Vitamin E, which is a natural preservative
Honey - manuka honey from New Zealand can help heal infections
Pumpkin Spice - because you want this to taste as awesome as possible
You will also need a container to store it, like an old lip balm or eye cream jar. Make sure whatever container you use is pre-sterilized with boiling water.
Finish up with some sprinkles of pumpkin pie spice. You can even use cinnamon. It's totally unnecessary for scrubbing your lips, but it makes the scrub taste like you're eating a pie — and who doesn't love pie?
The great thing about DIY lip scrubs is that you control the ingredients. Everything that went into this came straight from the kitchen. Plus, it's the same stuff you use in cooking or baking. So, you know it's safe to eat.
Ditch the designer lip scrubs and learn how to make it yourself. Both your lips and wallet will be happy!
