16 Simple Homemade DIY Lip Scrubs Recipes



Do you moisturize your lips regularly but they still feel dry and rough? Bestie, it is about time you include a good lip scrub in your weekly lip care routine. It helps remove dead lip skin cells, makes them smooth, and gives a natural healthy glow. What's more? It will leave your lips extremely hydrated.


Quick Tip: Using a hydrating lip mask after scrubbing your lips can make them healthier.


Is lip scrubbing already a part of your lip care routine but you see no improvement? Maybe the lip scrub you chose does not fit perfectly with your skin type.


Listen up! We are not going to suggest you some high-end lip care products. Neither we are going to suggest to you some cheap harmful products. But, we are surely going to give you some DIY lip scrub ideas that can prove to be a great match for your skin type.



Benefits Of Using A DIY Lip Scrub


We won't go deep into details. Just two crucial points to prove how a DIY lip scrub can be beneficial to you.

  1. It helps remove dry, flaky skin that builds up due to improper care (through the exfoliating agents) and restores softness and smoothness in the lips (through the moisturizing agents).

  2. YOU have an idea about the ingredients used to make it. YOU know if these ingredients are organic or chemically infused. YOU know if they will suit your skin or not.

What are you going to choose now? A lip scrub purchased from the market or A lip scrub made by you at home?



How Often Should You Use A Lip Scrub?


First of all, do a trial by using your lip scrub once a week. If you do not feel any kind of irritation in the first three weeks, switch to using it twice or thrice a week.


We saw a lot of people on the internet who scrub their lips daily. DO NOT do that!

Just like your skin, if you over-exfoliate your lips, there is a chance it might destroy the delicate healthy cells that save your lips from being exposed to irritation or sensitivity.

How To Prepare Your DIY Lip Scrub?


The procedure is similar to preparing every batch of these scrubs.

Follow these simple steps to prepare your lip scrubs:


  1. Line up your ingredients as per the measurements given above.

  2. Take a clean bowl or cup.

  3. Add into it sugar, as it is the base ingredient to prepare the scrub.

  4. Now, add the essential oils, flavoring, or any other powdered middle item, which will give the scrub an aroma and taste.

  5. Finally, add the moisturizing agent (coconut oil, olive oil, castor oil, or honey) and mix everything well.

  6. This last step is applicable only if you are using any coloring agents. Add them according to the measurements and mix.



How To Store Your DIY Lip Scrub?


We suggest you use an air-tight container and store the scrub in a cool, dry place to avoid germ build-up in them.


A cool place is important to keep the ingredients solid. Ingredients such as coconut oil and honey can melt easily at warm temperatures.




How To Use The Lip Scrub?


Directions

Apply the lip scrub to your lips and gently massage (with your fingers, a brush, or a lip scrubber) for three to four minutes. Remove the excess product with the help of a wet towel.


Apply a hydrating lip mask and leave it on for 30 minutes. Massage it into your lips and apply some lip balm. You are now ready to go!
