    This time of year, I often begin to question why I chose to live in the Midwest. I love spring, summer and fall, but the cold weather, blistering winds and lack of sun takes their toll on both my mood and skin.

    This is also the time of year where I need to exfoliate everything, using sugar scrubs I whip up for my arms, legs and feet and a gentle exfoliator for my face. No matter what I do right now my lips are dry and chapped…I realized I needed to be exfoliating them, too!

    You can put on all the lip treatments you want, but first and foremost, you will need to remove the dead skin. This is where this easy DIY Lip Scrub comes in. PS… it’s so good you’ll want to lick your lips!

    How do You Make a Sugar Lip Scrub?

    This lip scrub is made by blending together just a few grocery store ingredients:

    • coconut oil
    • essential oil
    • sugar
    • grapeseed oil

    Are Lip Scrubs Good for Your Lips?

    Absolutely! This lip scrub makes a fun activity for a spa birthday party or a great Valentine’s Day gift for friends. {I can’t be the only one with a daughter who is over-the-top excited about all things bath bombs and beauty, right?} Because the ingredients are natural, you can feel good about whipping up a batch to gift to teachers, neighbors, and anyone that might enjoy some softer skin this winter.

    How Often Should You Exfoliate Lips?

    Because it’s so gentle, you can use daily, if needed! Twice a week is generally recommended for exfoliation. I prefer to use this lip scrub in the morning, before applying my makeup. I feel like it helps my lipstick or gloss application last so much longer!

    Tips for a DIY Lip Scrub:

    • try it with brown sugar instead of white to see which version you might prefer
    • While you can also sub with olive oil, I prefer the sweetness of the grapeseed
    • consider doubling or tripling the recipe for gifting
    • customize by using your favorite essential oil (suggestions: eucalyptus, peppermint, vanilla, sweet orange or even lavender would be lovely)
