To make your lip scrub you need to do the following: Choose your base, Add exfoliants, Add flavoring


Choose your base

When making your own lip scrub, it’s important to choose a base that works best for you. You can choose from a variety of different ingredients, all of which can be found in your kitchen or grocery store.

One popular base for lip scrubs is sugar. Sugar is the perfect ingredient for a lip scrub because it’s gentle on the skin, but still able to exfoliate the lips. It also has a natural sweetness, so it’s enjoyable to use! All you need is 1-2 tablespoons of sugar per tablespoon of oil or butter.

Another great option for a lip scrub base is salt. Salt can be used to give your lip scrub some extra exfoliating power and it also helps to draw out impurities from the skin. To make a lip scrub with salt, mix one tablespoon of salt with one tablespoon of oil or butter.

Finally, you can also use oats as a base for your lip scrub. Oats contain antioxidants and vitamins that nourish and protect the skin, so they’re perfect for a DIY lip scrub. To make an oat lip scrub, combine one tablespoon of oats with one tablespoon of oil or butter.

No matter what base you choose for your lip scrub, make sure it’s something that works for you!

Add exfoliants

Making your own lip scrub at home can be a great way to get soft, smooth lips. One of the main components  is the exfoliants. Exfoliants are what help to remove dead skin cells and create a softer feel on your lips. There are many different kinds of exfoliants that you can use in your DIY lip scrub.

Common exfoliants include sugar, sea salt, ground oatmeal, and coffee grounds. Sugar and sea salt are both excellent natural exfoliants that can provide gentle yet effective results. Ground oatmeal helps to keep moisture in your lips while also providing gentle exfoliation. Finally, coffee grounds can help to reduce puffiness and provide deep exfoliation.

When adding exfoliants to your DIY  scrub, make sure to choose one or two exfoliants and mix them together with an oil or a moisturizer. For example, you can mix 1 teaspoon of sugar with 1 teaspoon of olive oil or coconut oil to make a great scrub. Make sure to mix all of the ingredients together until they form a thick paste. If the mixture is too thin, you can add more exfoliants or oil to get the desired consistency.

Now that you have your exfoliants and base ingredients ready, you are well on your way to making your own!

Add flavoring

Creating your own scrub is a great way to get soft, kissable lips without spending a fortune on expensive store-bought products. With just a few simple ingredients, you can make your own lip scrub at home in minutes. Here are the steps to making it:

Step 1: Gather your ingredients. You will need white or brown sugar, olive or coconut oil, and an essential oil or flavoring of your choice. For example, you can use vanilla extract for a sweet scent, or peppermint oil for a minty flavor.

Step 2: Mix your ingredients together. Start with a ratio of two parts sugar to one part oil, and adjust the ratios until you reach the desired consistency.

Step 3: Add flavoring. This step is completely optional, but it can add a nice touch to your scrub. For a delicious scent, add a few drops of an essential oil or extract of your choice. This will make it smell amazing, but it will also help to keep it fresh.

Making lip scrub is easy, cost-effective, and fun! With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a custom  scrub that’s perfect for keeping your lips soft and smooth.
