DIY Lip Scrub For Kissable Lips

DIY Lip Scrub For Kissable Lips

Sugar scrubs are a quick, easy, natural, and an inexpensive way to heal and promote healthy skin. Over the years, I’ve tried many different lip scrubs, homemade, and store-bought, and I’ve found that my favorite is this homemade lemon sugar scrub.

~What You Need~

Avocado Oil 1tb
Cane Sugar 3tb
Fresh Lemon 1/2tb
Mixing Bowl
Table Spoon

~Why These Ingredients?~

Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids, jampacked with minerals and vitamins A, E, and D, which are essential for your skin to flourish. This oil is also able to soak though multiple layers of skin, leaving your lips hydrated from inside out.

Sugar is a natural glycolic acid which helps rejuvenate your lips by breaking down old skin cells and promoting the growth of new ones.

Lemon juice is acidic and well known for its ability to lighten skin, helping your lips be brighter and pinker.

~Directions~

In a mixing bowl, pour three tablespoons of cane sugar then add one tablespoon of the avocado oil.
Mix the two before adding half of a tablespoon of lemon juice.
Mix everything until it’s all one consistency.
Then pour your sugar scrub into a small jar, and it’s ready for you to use!

~How To Use~

Use this scrub once a week, or twice if you’re experiencing very dry lips.
Take a dime size amount and gently scrub your lip in a circular motion for 20 seconds, leave on for 3-5 minutes, then wash with lukewarm water.

~Tips~

If it’s consistency is runny, just add some more sugar.
Double the ingredients if you want to make more.
This scrub is also great for your hands!
Leave it with your skincare products, this way you don’t forget to use it.

Let me know if you tried this recipe and what you thought of it.

Super Amino Gel Cleanser

Summer Fridays is changing the game of skincare! Not only are they committed to making incredibly high-quality products, but they are vegan and cruelty-free!

Overtime Mask

The overtime mask helps rejuvenate your skin. This vitamin-packed pumpkin and apricot seed powder, oat kernel protein, and vitamin E serum will leave your skin squeaky clean and hydrated! You don’t need to use much so it will last you months. As if that wasn’t impressive enough, it’s paraben and sulfate-free, no synthetic dyes or fragrances, cruelty-free, vegan, and made in the US!
I like to use this product when my skin is feeling dull. It’s also great to use when you’re having breakouts to get rid of those dead skin cells and rejuvenate your skin.

Super Amino Gel Cleanser

The super amino gel cleanser is incredibly nourishing and so lightweight you barely feel it on the skin.
A little goes a long way. Tip- use one to two pumps and gently massage it in a circular motion on your face and neck for at least a minute before rinsing it off. This cleanser has seawater, which has a lot of essential minerals for your skin, calming irritation, and balancing your skin. This perfect cocktail of 11 amino acids does a great job removing your makeup while leaving your skin refreshed.
So give your skin a drink!

CC Me Serum

The cc me serum brightens your skin while locking in moisture, leaving your skin glowing!
Vitamin c, collagen, botanical cocktail, and squalane are what make this serum so unique. These ingredients will brighten up and even out your skin tone. Great for scarring and hyperpigmentation. Use one to two pumps after you wash your face with the super amino gel cleanser.
It’s very lightweight and feels great on the skin.
Tip- use it as a primer, thank me later.

These products are great for all skin types, especially for acne-prone skin!
They do a great job of gently rejuvenating your skin and giving you that healthy glow we all want.
