DIY Coconut Lime Lip Scrub

Summer is in full effect and my skin is feeling it! I bathe in sunscreen, chug water, and drench myself in coconut oil but this time of year my skin needs some extra love! This includes my lips!




I literally feel like my lips are looking like the Sahara Desert these days. I am so careful about shielding my skin from the sun but sometimes I forget about my lips! This is a real problem! It is my goal to focus on protecting my lips and adding them into my skin care routine. I am starting with this decadent coconut lime lip scrub!

Coconut Lime Lip Scrub-

Sugar
Coconut Oil
Lime Essential Oil 

Fill a small jar with sugar. Dump the sugar into a bowl. Add about 2 teaspoons of coconut oil- depending on how much sugar you used you may need more. Add two to three drops of lime essential oils. Mix well! I found it easier to use my hands. Store in a cool dry place. 



I love using this at night right before bed. I will rub this all over my lips to exfoliate them and then let it sit on my lips while I do the rest of my routine. Then I rinse it off and slather my lips with a night time chapstick. When I wake up in the morning my lips feel so hydrated and plump! 




Enjoy!
