Our lifestyle contributor, Erin Sousa, shows us how to make our very own lemon and sugar-infused lip scrub at home!
Dry, flakey lips are not a good look! There’s no reason to let your lips suffer when you can easily whip up the perfect natural remedy in your kitchen. The brown sugar works as a granular exfoliator and the oil adds moisture, while the lemon is used to infuse the scrub with a lovely aroma. I put together this simple make-it-yourself lemon sugar lip scrub with a few ingredients most of us likely already have on hand, and it works perfectly in the shower. In fact, I use it every morning! Just try not to sneak a taste…or do, because it’s completely edible!
DIY Lemon Sugar Lip Scrub
- Small jar for storage
- 1/3 cup of dark brown sugar
- 1/4 cup of grapeseed oil
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- Mix the brown sugar, grapeseed oil and lemon zest in a bowl.
- Spoon the mixture into a small jar.
- You’re done! As an added bonus, this scrub can also double as a body scrub simply by making a larger batch.
