Coconut Sugar Scrub

  • White Sugar

  • Coconut Oil

  • Coconut Essence

In a small bowl place 4 tablespoons of white sugar, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and mix. Add 4 drops of Coconut Essence for taste. As the white sugar is coarse it will provide a deep exfolitation. Once this is ready, get a small amount on your finger and apply to clean lips. Rub the sugar all over your lips to scrub and then wash off.

Cinnamon & Vanilla Scrub

  • Brown Sugar

  • Coconut Oil

  • Ground Cinnamon

  • Vanilla Essence

Mix 5 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a bowl. Add 4 drops of Vanilla Essence and a quarter teaspoon of ground cinnamon. The brown sugar will provide a gentle exfolitation for sensitve lips. Once this is ready get a small amount on your finger and apply to clean lips. Rub the sugar all over your lips to scrub and then wash off.

As this will remove a layer of dead skin, apply lip balm to your lips to seal in the softness.

 

NOTE: You can find Coconut Oil in the health food section of the supermarket/grocery store, however you can substitute this for Olive Oil.
