My amazingly talented cousin Claire, who’s behind all my videos, is the master-mind behind The Kitchy Kitchen. It’s filled with wonderful recipes, lifestyle tips, beautiful photography, and now a collaboration with yours truly. I’m so excited to be a part of her monthly beauty series and this month I show you how to make your own lip scrub. Check it out on her blog here and read below!
My lips are constantly dry in the winter, so whipping up this easy lip scrub is heavenly. The coconut oil moisturizes, while the sugar gently sloughs off dead skin. The honey not only binds it together, but helps brighten and bring back your natural color, while adding healing elements as well. I like adding a couple drops of peppermint oil for a refreshing twist that will actually give you good breath.
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon raw sugar
2-3 drops peppermint oil or other essential oil of your choice
Get your kissable lips by quickly popping the coconut oil (if hard and solid) in the microwave until melted. Add all the ingredients together to make a paste and gently rub along your lips. You can also use a toothbrush for some added friction but be very careful not to tear the skin. Wipe off with a warm washcloth or simply lick your lips! If sealed, you can store the remainder in the fridge for 2-3 weeks. Bead containers and baby food jars make great little pots for storage.
