DIY Lip Scrubs! ♡5:07 PM
Another DIY! YAY!
Because of our Pinterest addiction lately, we thought of making some lip scrubs. If your lips have been dry for a while now, we now have the perfect solution for you. Again, the ingredients are very simple and most can be found at home. If you're interested in making one then here are the steps!
Option 1: Lush Inspired Lip Scrub
You will need:
|Measuring utensils: 1 tbsp and 1 tsp|
|1 teaspoon Olive Oil|
|1 tablespoon Honey|
|Optional: Food coloring of choice|
|Optional: Petroleum Jelly|
|1 tablespoon sugar|
Combine 1 tablespoon of honey and sugar in a small bowl.
Then, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil, 1 teaspoon of Petroleum Jelly and two to three drops of food coloring. Mix well.
Using your spoon, place the completed scrub inside the container. You can use a smaller spoon or a chopstick to help place it inside easier. Our scrub required two containers.
You're done! Just scrub it on your lips and feel extra moisturized!
Option 2: Vanilla Lip Scrub
This second scrub is based off of the first one, but we changed a couple of ingredients so that we could get this kinda vanilla-y and coconut-y scent while still being moisturizing.
We basically did everything that we did with the first scrub, aside from adding a little vanilla extract for scent. We also switched out the olive oil for coconut oil because coconut oil is very nourishing and smells really great, especially when it has that slight hint of vanilla. The amount of vanilla extract that you'll add depends on how strong you want your lip scrub to smell. We only added a little, around two drops, and it turned out really well, complementing the coconut smell. The portion of the coconut oil stays the same: 1tbsp because we don't want to deviate from the original recipe too much in fear of the scrub becoming too liquid-y. Also, we're telling you guys now not to make too much since a little goes a really long way with these scrubs. We already tried it out and it works well and laves your lips feeling great. They make you want to eat them too! :)
