When it comes to your lips, we often give more importance to hydrating them. Blame it on that frigid weather, but when your lips get dry and chapped, they tend to flake and peel – a lip scrub helps to slough off dead, chapped skin, and helps your lip balm penetrate deeper into the skin. You can simply make a lip scrub at home with a few ingredients that you’ll easily find in your kitchen cabinet. Read on to find some amazing DIY homemade lip scrub recipes.
Coconut And Honey Lip Scrub
Start by mixing the coconut oil and honey. Add the brown sugar and the lukewarm water to this mixture. Rub the mixture on your lips in a circular motion for two to three minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. Coconut oil is filled with antioxidants and fatty acids that nourish the skin, while the brown sugar acts as a natural exfoliator that helps remove dead dry skin. Honey is rich in natural healing properties.
Mint Lip Scrub
Sugar works as a natural exfoliant while peppermint oil helps to stimulate circulation under the lips and create a “just bitten” effect that makes your lips appear fuller. This DIY sugar lip scrub is also very soothing and refreshing for the skin on your lips. Grapeseed oil is lightweight; it’s filled with antioxidants and acts as a wonderful natural moisturizer for your lips.

It’s always advisable to make your homemade lip scrubs in small batches. They will remain fresh and last you for about a week. Store your scrub in a clean and dry, old lip balm or eyeshadow case. Sterilizing the container by leaving it in hot water for a while is recommended to prevent germs. Refrigerate this case and use it within a week.
