Lip scrubs are a life saver when you instantly want soft lips. It is a great way to exfoliate your lips on-the-go and also makes an important step before you apply a lipstick, especially matte ones. How about a lip scrub with lip plumping properties? Below is an easy DIY for a peppermint lip scrub you need to try today!
Things you need-
- 2 tablespoon organic white or brown sugar (exfoliator)
- 1 tablespoon organic and edible coconut oil (moisturizer)
- 1 teaspoon honey (moisturizer, lightens lips)
- 7-8 drops of peppermint essential oil (increase circulation and plump lips)
In a bowl, add in sugar. Make sure the sugar granules are tiny to avoid lip inflammation. You can also roughly grind it before adding.
Add in coconut oil and honey. Add in peppermint essential oil and mix well.
Store this in a tiny jar with tight lid. To use, take a small quantity and scrub it gently on your lips.
Note: The plumping effect isn’t dramatic like commercial lip plumping treatments. Lips look fuller after using this and the result is temporary. For extra effect, you could add in cinnamon essential oil too.
