Vanilla Coconut Lip Scrub
I am obsessed with how good this scrub smells! It doesn’t just smell nice, it is also wonderful for the lips. Coconut oil helps soothe chapped lips and deeply moisturizes them while sugar helps exfoliate dry skin and vanilla extract helps heal sunburns. If you have been out in the sun, this is a good lip scrub to try.
1 teaspoon unrefined coconut oil
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix the sugar, coconut oil, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.
Take a small amount and massage it onto your lips for a minute.
Rinse with warm water.
After exfoliating your lips, take it a step further and apply a lip mask. You can make one yourself or apply a commercial one. After washing off or removing the lip mask, moisturize your lips with a rich lip moisturizer or lip balm.
