How To Hydrate, Scrub and Scent Your Lip Care

How To Hydrate, Scrub and Scent Your Lip Care
Your lips are one of the main focal points on your face. How do you care for them and keep them soft and kissable? You create a scrub and lip balm to keep them hydrated and free from dead skin buildup.

Why Would You Scrub Your Lips?


It's essential to scrub your lips to remove the dead skin cells. Yet most women are not taught that this should be so. We keep buying new lipsticks and gloss and neglect to remove the dead skin cells that constantly build up on our lips. This causes your lip stick to look choppy and not go on smoothly.

This causes you to constantly bite your lips trying to remove the excess skin build up. Remove the dead skin with a lip scrub and you improve the longevity and effectiveness of your lip products.

Here's the perfect lip scrub and easy to make. You can thank Erin Henry at suburbansimplicity.com for this beauty.

Sugar & Honey Lip Scrub



  • 4 tablespoons of sugar ( She doesn’t specify brown or white. I use brown or granulated sugar cane)

  • 1/2 tablespoon carrier oil (coconut/avocado/almond)

  • 1 tablespoon of honey

  • 8 drops grapefruit essential oil

  • Small bowl

  • Glass jar with lid


To make

Mix everything together in a small bowl. If you're using coconut oil and it needs to be softened, place the oil in the microwave for a few seconds before mixing. (Or you can sit it in a hot water bath to soften)

Store the scrub in a small glass jar with a lid to keep it fresh. Gently use the scrub once or twice a week. Apply a rich balm afterwards. I’ll get to the balm in a minute.

If you store your scrub in the refrigerator, it should last up to two or three months.

Note: Not all essential oils are safe for human consumption. Nor are all brands or scents. Tread waters carefully when you choose your essential oils.
