Smooth Lips - Selfmade Scrub

Today I will teach you how you can make a selfmade lipscrub. If you read my post "The Beauty Secret of Olive Oil" , you already know that olive oil can be used for multiple purposes like hair care, for dry skin, to remove your makeup and give you some smooth legs. Now we're going to use olive oil to make our own lipscrub! It's so easy to make it and it won't cost you a penny. If you want to know how to get smooth lips with your own lipscrub? Just keep on reading!

What You Need

You only need things you might already have in your kitchen. There are three things that you need to create this:
    • Olive oil
    • Sugar
    • A little jar
    • Grenadine (optional)
The olive oil is used to moisturize your lips, I guess you could use other oils as well, but I prefer olive oil and I think it does a better job. The sugar is for the exfoliating part. The little jar of course serves to store the product. The grenadine is an optional step, this is for the people that don't like the taste of olive oil. I skipped this step because it tastes pretty decent without it. The quantities of the products depends on how big your jar is. I suggest you to take a little one just in terms of expiration. You Always need more sugar than olive oil.

What To Do

You just fill the jar with sugar and then add olive oil to it until all the sugar is covered in olive oil. Then you can add some more if needed. Make sure you close the jar properly. Put it in the fridge for half an hour to an hour, when the mixture is completely solid it is ready for use. It's only possible for it to become solid when you don't use too much oil. Since sugar and olive oil are used as preservatives it won't expire that quickly. But I suggest you to replace it after a month or so. But I use mine every morning and night, so it won't even last me a whole month.

How To Use

It's not only easy to make, it's also easy to use! You just take the jar out of the refrigerator and scoop out a little bit of the product with your finger, you won't need much. Just apply the product on your lips using your finger. Exfoliate both your upper and lower lip for about 30 seconds. Afterwards you can rinse it or just lick the remaining product from your lips. Since we only used organic products it is 100% edible. Exfoliate your lips even more using a clean toothbrush. After scrubbing my lips I also apply some lipbalm for even more moisture.

When To Use

When you're someone who often suffers from dry and crusty lips I suggest you to scrub your lips on a daily basis. Integrate it in your morning routine, use it at night before sleep or just do both. I highly recommand scrubbing your lips before and after applying and wearing a matte liquid lipstick, because these tend to be drying. Lipstick won't look as good when you apply it on top of dry and crusty lips. It doesn't only look better, your lips also feel better.

Exfoliate before it's too late

You really should try it out for yourself and if you do, let me know what you think.

    This sounds incredible, especially after being in the Florida sun for a week-long vacation. I wonder if you have ever tried adding a few drops of essential oils to this recipe, as well?
