In this article we share an easy, natural and effective homemade lip scrub with only 4 ingredients. We also tell you how to apply it, how often to apply it and how to complement it to increase its effectiveness even more. No more dry lips!

To make this natural homemade lip scrub you only need 4 ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil: will serve as a moisturiser.
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond oil: provides moisturising and emollient action, i.e. in addition to moisturising, it has the ability to soothe dry skin on the lips.

We explain the easiest and quickest step-by-step to say “goodbye” to dry lips:

  1. Melt the coconut oil in a small bowl (microwave safe). Just heat for 10-15 seconds.
  2. Add the almond oil. Stir.
  3. When all the oils are mixed, add the brown or granulated sugar and mix. *(Use brown sugar if you want a softer exfoliation or granulated white sugar if you want a stronger lip exfoliation).
  4. Finally, add honey to create a flexible consistency and easier application.
  5. Add your lip scrub to a jar of lip balm to preserve it.

How to apply the homemade lip scrub?

  1. Apply a small amount of lip scrub with a teaspoon or cosmetic spatula (do not use your finger, as you can get bacteria into the scrub).
  2. Apply the lip scrub with your finger and rub on your lips gently for 30-60 seconds.
  3. Rinse with lukewarm water and dry the lips with a clean towel.

How long does the homemade lip scrub last?

This natural lip scrub recipe can last up to 3 months. -Remember never to remove the scrub from the container directly with your fingers – this will shorten its shelf life and effectiveness.

If at any time you notice a change in its colour, general appearance or smell, it is time to discard it and make a new one.

How often should I use the homemade lip scrub?

It is recommended to use 1-2 times a week. Applying more than 2 times may cause slight skin irritation and is not necessary.

You can start by applying the lip scrub once a week and see how the appearance of your lips evolves. If you feel your lips are still dry, apply it twice a week.

From now on, don’t forget to exfoliate your lips!

If you like your lips soft and healthy, you’ll love the homemade lip scrub in this article. As a lip scrub made with only natural ingredients, you’ll notice how it softens dry, flaky lips, and will also help the moisturising ingredients absorb better afterwards. This scrub has an emollient part (oils and honey) that softens and moisturises the skin on your lips and an exfoliating part (brown sugar).

As you can see, using a lip scrub is vital for soft, healthy lips. Factors such as cold weather, excessive sun, heat or dry air absorb too much moisture from our lips, giving them a dry, unhealthy appearance and an uncomfortable, tight feeling. Exfoliating the lips regularly ensures the removal of dead skin cells, allowing you to enjoy supple, soft and plump lips.
