This winter is really starting to take its’ toll on my hands, feet, arms, legs, face….and LIPS! The last several days my lips have been EXTRA dry and flaky despite the fact that I put lipstick and/or lip gloss on at LEAST once a day, every day. Yesterday I got fed up and decided to mix up a remedy for my state of lip dryness.
This super simple sugar lip scrub can be made in minutes with a few simple ingredients from your pantry. Start with organic virgin coconut oil, which is an amazing natural moisturizer loaded with antioxidants, add some ordinary sugar as an exfoliant, then top it all off with a tiny bit of honey and peppermint essential oil for taste!
I didn’t want to make a big batch of lip scrub because frankly I don’t need it that often, so I mixed up just enough to fill a 1 ounce container.
Edible Peppermint Lip Scrub
Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl with a spoon or fork. Transfer to a small container.
Scoop out approximately 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon and gently rub into your lips in a circular motion for about 30 seconds.
Because all the ingredients are completely natural and edible, no need to wipe it off after scrubbing. Just lick your lips! Not only will your lips be nice and smooth, your breath will be minty fresh! :-)
