#Bloggersdoitbetter DIY Lip scrubs!


Natural lip scrubs leave your pout soft, smooth, and lipstick ready! Even though it might be spring here in England It's still cold and it's windy, so I bet a lot of you are suffering from chapped lips because of the weather.

While I could have gone looking for store bought scrubs, I decided to make my own lip scrub instead! DIY beauty products are fun and inexpensive, after all, and you know exactly what's going into them.
The ingredients I used you will probably have in your kitchen right this very minute!

Ingredients:
1 tsp honey
1 tsp oil (either olive, almond or other of your choice)
1-2 tsp white or brown sugar (I prefer white as it exfoliates my lips better but either works just as well!)

Directions:
Blend all ingredients in a small container, measuring equal parts of each ingredient in your bowl. I like to make a two-use batch, so I combine about half a teaspoon of each ingredient. If you want more graininess, add in more sugar. Likewise, if you want a smoother batch, add more olive oil or honey.


And there you have it a simple easy way to make your own lipscrub! If you try it out at home let me know how you get on! Have you ever made your own lip scrub? Let me know in the comments below!

  10. This sounds like a great idea! I've been planing to buy the lip scrubs from Lush, but I only have one store in a city nearby and I never have time to go there. Will defiantly try this one in the meantime. xx
