DIY: Coconut Honey Lip Scrub


Ok guys, I know you've seen the lip scrubs that are seemingly everywhere these days- though I haven't seen them make their way to the drugstore quite yet. I think the concept is genius, my lips are always dry and flaky (i.e. gross) in the winter which makes wearing lipstick a chore. Exfoliating and moisturizing them seems like a no brainer but spending $20 is a bit more than I'm willing to sacrifice for a lip scrub.

I decided to whip up my own lip scrub, it was so easy and I can't wait to experiment with different flavors. I suggest keeping this in the fridge for up to a week after you make it.

Coconut Honey Lip Scrub
1 tbs honey
1 tbs sugar
1/2 tbs olive oil
1/2 tbs coconut oil

Mix all ingredients to combine. Apply a pea size portion to your lips and rub gently with your index finger. Rinse with warm water and apply your favorite moisturizing chapstick.
