Lip Service

I don’t know about you guys, but transitional weather always throws my skin for a loop. It seems just when my skin has adjusted to the new weather and I feel like I’ve got everything under control, all it takes is a rise or fall in the temps to take it all back.

Lately my lips have been getting pretty dry. At first, I felt the need for a little balm and then slowly but surely my pucker progressively started to resemble sandpaper. The hair mask I made weeks ago did wonders for my tresses so I figured why not seek out another natural way to get my kisser back to well, kissable.

I discovered some great combinations of DIY treatments that both exfoliate and nourish. A great lip scrub will do just that, slough away dry skin but also infuse moisture back in simultaneously.

Below are two different kinds of scrubs you can make at home. I can’t decide which one I love more! Let me know what you think…

Sugar Lips:
• 1 tsp of olive oil
• 1 tsp honey
• 1 tsp brown sugar

Minty Kiss:
• 1 tsp of sugar
• 1 tsp of coconut oil
• 3-5 drops of peppermint oil

Mix these ingredients in a tiny saucer or cup to create a scrub consistency. With clean hands, gently buff the treatment into your lips for about a minute. The key word here is gently. You don’t want to irritate the delicate skin.

Rinse the scrub away and pat dry. Lastly, dab a moisturizing balm or better yet, leftover coconut oil onto your fresh and clean, happy lips.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Please be aware that over time, coconut oil is actually drying to your skin. So, initially it helps moisturize, but long term use on your skin and on your hair will dry you out! 😉

    1. when it comes to coconut oil softgels whats the purpose of those. i have heard they helpwith metabolism, weight loss, hair and skin. although i have tried them in the past but they never did anything for me.

  2. I did the first one and it’s awesome! Thanks for sharing! I’m definitely going to use this from now on, except cut the ingredients in half because I barely needed any of it! (-:

  3. This is great! I use coconut oil for virtually anything, from lip balm to face mask and hair conditioner. It prevents split ends, controls hair loss, moists the scalp, prevents skin flakes, evens tan out… the list goes on and on.
