If you are anything like me, your lips have been really suffering this winter. It doesn’t matter how much lip balm (even the rescue/intensive kind) I slather onto my lips, 5 minutes later they are craving more! I LOVE lipsticks but no one wants to see a bright red flaky lips.
I’ve been investigating different products but for some reason lip scrub is something I do not want to hand over cash for. I think it’s because I have read so many different reviews for various products and they always have mixed reviews. If this is something you do not agree with please let me know – I would love to find THE lip scrub for me.
Whilst my quest continues, I decided to make my own homemade version, and I’ve got to say…I like it.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp honey
- 2-4 drops essential oils (optional)
Some recipes suggest warming the oil in the microwave first. I do not own a microwave so ignored this instruction and it made no difference. Mix all the ingredients together and hey presto, you have a great lip treatment. If you find it is a little oily, like I did, I just added a bit more sugar until I achieved the consistency I wanted.
The honey helps add to the flavour so it tastes nice and sweet. Rub it all over your lips, leave it to sink in for a couple of minutes and then rub it off.
Let me know if you enjoyed this scrub or if you have any other homemade recipes.
