Recipes For Lip Scrubs

You’ve heard of body and face exfoliation, but have you heard of using a lip scrub recipe to exfoliate your lips? That’s right lips scrubs are quite the beauty aid when it comes to getting smooth sexy lips. Learn more on how to make your own and why it’s so beneficial.

We need to scrub the dead layers off our skin to maintain smooth and young-looking skin. The same applies to the lips. We must scrub the exterior layer of our lips to make keep smooth and kissable lips. Lips scrubs are a mainstay in winter beauty because they help exfoliate dry winter lips. Like skin care exfoliators, lip scrubs use a gritty substance that exfoliate the surface layers when rubbed on your lips. Lip scrubs remove the dead outer surface of your lips, but unlike body scrubs, they are generally safe if ingested. Lip scrubs are made to be sweet and great-tasting so scrubbing is healthy and enjoyable.

Advantages of Using a Lip Scrub

Removing dead surface of your lips brings out new fresh layers, making lips soft, smooth, and yes, kissable! If this isn’t enough, there are also other advantages that will make you consider scrubbing your lips: With a smooth surface, lip cosmetics will adhere longer on your lips. This makes lipsticks, lip liner, and lip gloss much more effective and long lasting. Lip exfoliation makes your lips more moist and retain its moisture longer; helping to prevent cracked lips. If you’ll scrub your lips regularly, you’ll never have to worry about exposure to wind and cold, and getting chapped lips after. Apply a lip scrub on your lips and get moisturized lips, pronto!

Lip Scrub Usage and Procedures

Beauty experts recommend scrubbing your lips and using a lip scrub product at least once a week, and more during winter. It only takes a few minutes to scrub your lips, so doing it once, even twice a week, is very realistic. You can add it to your evening routine, or simply do it after you brush your teeth. With a lip scrub, achieving smooth, beautiful lips will always be within your reach. So you might be asking where can I get lip scrub products. The simplest answer is cosmetics and beauty shops. However, lip scrub products can also be made at home. So, if you want to save on a lip scrub, consider making your own. It’s easy to make a homemade lip scrub recipe, and the good news is, the ingredients you will need are most likely already in your kitchen!

DIY Lip Scrub Recipe

The great thing about this lip scrub recipe is that you can choose your own flavor (including chocolate!)

• 1 tbsp. Vaseline (A natural salve or balm can be substituted if petroleum’s not your thing.)
• 1 tbsp. Honey
• 2 tbsp. Sugar
• Flavor (Here’s where you can get creative—you can use a squirt of chocolate syrup, but feel free to use maple, caramel, strawberry, or even a drop or two of your favorite essential oil.)

Combine the ingredients in the container of your choice (a small glass jar works well, or you can re-appropriate an empty moisturizer container), mixing until everything is thoroughly combined. You can add more sugar or more honey depending on how you want the consistency. You can even stir in a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper for a bonus plumping effect. Then scoop a silver dollar-sized amount onto your lips (try to resist the urge to eat it!) and slowly massage it in for 1-3 minutes. You can massage with an old toothbrush for extra exfoliation. Then rinse the mixture off your lips and smooth on your favorite lip balm and moisturizer by LifeCell. Now go kiss someone!
