I love lipsticks… even if I go to grocery shopping with dad my lips are never without hint of colors. As we all know lipsticks are of different finishes creamy, glossy, matte…so on; my fav is matt finish; so one can imagine the torture my lips go through! As a lipstick lover I love taking care of my lips so that they look supple and kissable. How doesn’t like kissable lips!!
I am totally addicted to lip balms and lip scrubs; my fav lip scrub is Lush Julips Lip Scrub (Read Lush Mint Julips scrub review here). I’m the laziest person on this earth to try DIY…but my Julips lip scrub got over and the place I stay has no lush stores and the online shipping charges are exorbitant. So, that’s what made the laziest person on earth (that’s me ) to try out this homemade lip scrub. It’s very simple and the ingredients are easily available in my mommy’s kitchen.

Ingredients needed for making Homemade Lip Scrub:
- Sugar– 1 tsp of sugar
I crush the sugar little bit so that’s it’s easy to exfoliate and doesn’t keep falling from my lips.
- Honey– 1 tsp of honey
- Olive Oil– 10-20 drops
Olive Oil is very famous in skincare/hair care. It helps in retaining the moisture of lips.
- Lime Juice– Just few drops 2-3 drops.
This is optional but as I have pigmented lips I make it a point to add lime juice as lime juice acts as lightening agent.
An empty container to store and a baby toothbrush
Mix all the ingredients in the order stated above and voila your lip scrub is ready.
Before scrubbing my lips I apply almond oil for 30 mins so that my lips are soft and the dead cells can be scrubbed off easily. I scrub my lips alternate days and make new batch every time I use. I use a baby toothbrush to exfoliate properly and remember to be gentle you are scrubbing yours lips not feet . Wash with luke warm water and a apply moisturizing lip balm.
