Try Something New Tuesday: DIY Sugar Lip Scrub

Try Something New Tuesday

For this week’s edition of Try Something New Tuesday I thought I would try my hand at being a cosmetologist and make some sugar lip scrub! My lips have been taking a battering the past few weeks since coming back from holidays and what better way to treat them than a easy-to-make scrub. I made three varieties because I wanted to test the effects of different sugars on my pout, but you would probably only need to make one. The best thing about them is that they only take about two minutes to make.

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub: Mix 2 teaspoons of  brown sugar with 2 teaspoons of jojoba oil.

Raw Sugar and Honey Lip Scrub: Mix 2 teaspoons of raw sugar with 1 teaspoon of jojoba oil and a drizzle of honey.

Fine Sugar Lip Scrub: Mix 2 teaspoons of fine sugar with 1 1/5 teaspoons of jojoba oil.

Now it’s time to pucker-up and exfoliate your lips – remember to apply lip balm afterwards to lock in the moisture. You’ll be ready for that kiss under the mistletoe in no time! Oh and they may look delicious enough to eat, but you probably shouldn’t…I don’t think your tummy would like you!
