DIY-Grapefruit Sugar Lip Scrub

DIY Lip Scrub!



This sweet concoction was inspired by 2 things. My new favorite breakfast food (who knew grapefruit was so dang yummy? I feel like I found a long lost friend!) and my poor peeling lips. Since I have wanted to do a DIY lip scrub for a while, and I have had lots of peelsies to deal with (Makes for a yucky lipstick base if ya know what I’m sayin’.) it was time for action.

So, we already know how lovely the coconut oil/sugar combo is as a scrub from this coconut sugar scrub, and this mixture amps up the moisture for your lips with vitamin E and the grapefruit not only adds sweet flavor, but an extra element of exfoliation as well. If your mix gets a little too juicy, scoop the scrub into a paper towel and kinda wring it out a bit. Add the vitamin e last, use a sharp knife or pin to get the goods out of the cap. Make sure your grapefruit juice is from an actual grapefruit and not out of a carton of pink grapefruit juice cocktail or some other whatnot.

This scrub keeps nicely for a week in the fridge. Use it every day for a baby soft and icky peely-skin free pucker!

Let me know if you give it a go!

  • Kindness is so important to me, because I just wasn’t raised to be kind. I was raised to be strong and hold my own. To never let anyone push me around and to be tough. My mom was proud when people told her I was full of sass and attitude just like her. At the… [Continue Reading]
