Dry and chapped lips are honestly such a hassle, they look terrible and even hurt. While there are multiple products available on the market, they are usually pricey and full of harmful chemicals. Here are three easy and all-natural homemade recipes that will leave your lips feeling soft and kissable!
Brown Sugar and Honey Lip Scrub
This scrub is extremely easy to make and has so many benefits. The Brown sugar is a great exfoliante and the honey has moisturising properties. Try this scrub for an easy and fast way to get perfectly soft lips
1 tablespoon brown sugar
Honey (just enough to mix into a paste with the brown sugar)
1 drop vanilla extract
Start by thoroughly mixing together all the ingredients and making a granular paste. This paste can now be stored, in a glass jar or a container with a lid, for up to one month.
Using it is just as easy and all you need to do is rub a little amount onto your lips. Exfoliate the lips and let the paste sit on for a couple of minutes before scrubbing it off. Follow this process with a generous application of lip balm to leave your lips feeling soft and supple.
Mint Lip Scrub
This is a fun twist on the lip scrub. While the sugar provides exfoliation and olive oil helps moisturize, the peppermint helps in healing and leaves your lips feeling all tingly and plump.
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 drop peppermint oil
Start by combining all the ingredients into a coarse paste. Make sure that you do not add too much peppermint oil because it can end up stinging. This mixture can now be stored for a few weeks in a lidded container or a glass jar.
Before you use this scrub, hold a warm washcloth over your lips for a few minutes to soften them. Put on the mint scrub and exfoliate gently and then let it sit for a couple of minutes. Wash off with warm water and follow up with a hydrating lip balm. Your lips are sure to feel fresh and beautiful.
