5 All Natural DIY Lip Scrub Recipes for Soft Smooth Lips

I will start off with my favourite and most used DIY lip scrub recipe. Mix equal parts of honey, almond oil and sugar for a nourishing lip scrub hich exfoliates and leaves your lips soft and supple.  Read detailed post on how to make DIY almond oil sugar scrub 
Almond oil is something Iam addicted to at present as I am using it a lot for my hair and dark circles. This oil also works well nourishing my lips when I use it in a lip scrub. If you still havent tried almond oil for skin care, You should give it a try soon because it is very affordable multi purpose oil.

#2 DIY Lip scrub with Vaseline

You can actually use Vaseline or your regular lip balm to make a hydrating DIY lip scrub. Just mash up some of your lip balm or vaseline in a bowl , add some sugar and mix well. If you are using a lip balm you can add some coconut oil to thin out the scrub. If you are making this scrub with vaseline you can add just a drop or two to the mix. Now apply this DIY scrub on your lips in circular motion to gently exfoliate.

#3 DIY Coconut oil and Honey lip scrub

For a yummy edible lip scrub mix two parts sugar, one part coconut oil and one part honey. Apply a little bit of this on your lips and scrub the dead cells, bidding bye to those crappy chapped lips. I personally think this is the easiest lip scrub for super dry lips as coconut oil is very moisturizing,  honey is a healer and more importantly you might already have these ingredients in your kitchen.

How to make Sugar lip scrub with coconut oil
- 2 spoons sugar (preferably brown)
- 1 spoon coconut oil (the purer the better)
-1 spoon honey
Mix and blend all ingredients together and use it to exfoliate your lips the affordable and natural way. If you are making this with 2 spoons of sugar you will definitely have a lot left for next use which you can put it in an empty lip balm jar and store in refrigerator. This lip scrub is all natural and preservative free still it can be used for 2 weeks easily when store in cool place.

#4 DIY lip scrub for Dark lips ( Honey, Lemon and sugar)

If you have pigmented or dark lips, exfoliating them properly can help lighten them. It is best to use a lemon lip scrub for dark lips because lemon juice has natural bleaching properties. You can use lemon juice or lemon essential oil for this DIY lip scrub. Also if you have dark lips I suggest you use a good SPF lip balm to pretect your lips from sun rays and further darkening.
- 1 spoon honey
-2 spoon sugar
- some drops of lemon juice (or lemon essential oil)
-2 drops of ocnut oil or almond oil (optional)
Mix all ingredients together until they are combined into a paste of sorts. Now apply on your lips and scrub in circular motion for about 30 seconds and wipe off with a damp cloth.

#5 DIY minty Peppermint lip scrub

If you like minty lip balms like me you will love this peppermint lip scrub too. Not everyone has peppermint essential oil stocked in your home but if you still want a minty lip scrub , I have a cool idea, just nicely crush a chloromint chocolate and add to this scrub instead of peppermint oil. No really, Iam not joking it works and works like a charm. For oil you can use any essential oil of your choice like jojoba oil, almond oil or coconut oil.
-1 spoon honey
- 1 spoon coconut oil
- 2 spoon sugar
- 4 drops of peppermint essential oil (or finely crushed chloromint chocolate) 
Mix all ingredients in a empty clean jar and tada minty amazingly scented DIY lip scrub is ready to soften your lips.

Why you should exfoliate your lips
No one likes chapped and peeling lips and it is always good to exfolitae lips witha lip scrub. Exfoliating lips helps get rid of dead skin cells to reveal soft supple new skin layer underneath.

Why lips need extra care
Lips are very delicate because it has very less cellular layers, these layers also lack natural oil producing glands making them dry out faster. So make sure to nourish and hydrate your lips with a good lip balm and exfoliate regularly.

Additional Tips for making DIY lip scrubs

  • The quantity of ingredients isnt very important when making lip scrubs. You can adjust the quantity as per your requirement . Like if you want a more nourishing lip scrub add more oil, for a more exfoliating scrub increase quantity of sugar.
  • When adding essential oils to lip scrub make sure they are organic and pure.
  • You can use any sugar of your choice. White sugar is what I have readily available at my place but it is more coarse and abrasive. It is best to use brown sugar or caster sugar.
  • Be very gentle with your lip scrubs or you will end up with blood stained lips! Follow exfoliation with a nourishing clear lip balm.
I have tried finding a good affordable lip scrub in India and the options are almost non existent. If you are also in the same boat fret not and start whipping your own all natural DIY lip scrub recipe.
