4 ingredient natural exfoliating and hydrating Sugar Lip Scrub recipe.
Do you love homemade / natural bath products? I love having the ability to whip up my own skin care products in our kitchen. It’s refreshing to know everything in it. It’s not only a great gift for yourself, but it makes a beautiful gift as well!
With just a few simple ingredients you can whip up this refreshing Sugar Lip Scrub. It’s the easiest way to cure the winter blues and heal dry and chapped lips.
Sometimes during the harsh winter months our lips become so dry and chapped to the point they hurt (and sometimes bleed). No amount of vaseline can save a pout at that point.
How to Cure Chapped Lips
Aquaphor, vaseline and chapstick help, but the best cure for dry and chapped lips is gently exfoliating the dead skin cells. Hydrating lips is much easier and more effective with fresh skin cells.
This homemade Lip Scrub recipe is tried and true. After a few days your lips will feel so soft!
You can use sugar lip scrub daily or as needed!
Sugar Lip Scrub Ingredients
Sugar – White granulated sugar is natural and effective while not being too abrasive. You can also use brown sugar if you prefer.
Essential Oil – I love using mint, but you can use your favorite essential oils.
Grapeseed Oil – You can use the oil of your choice – olive, vegetable, almond, or grapeseed. Grapeseed is my preferred oil of choice for lip scrub and other natural beauty products. You can find it in most grocery stores with the other oils.
How to Make Sugar Lip Scrub
- In a mixing bowl, combine ingredients.
- Store in a small airtight jar.
How to Use Homemade Lip Scrub
Gently massage a small amount on your lips and rinse off. Use up to 3 times a week to exfoliate dry, chapped lips.
Tips for Storing Sugar Lip Scrub

2 oz jars are the perfect size for gifting (or storing) your Sugar Lip Scrub! You can wrap it with ribbon or baker’s twine and garnish with a little mint sprig or greenery.
