Easy DIY Vanilla Lip Scrub Recipe for Dry, Chapped Lips

My lips get so dry in the winter, so I use a DIY lip scrub to keep them kissably soft.  Not only is this scrub easy to make, but it is also very effective at loosening dead skin.  Use this easy scrub once or twice a week to keep lips soft.

 DIY Vanilla Lip Scrub Recipe

What You Need

2 teaspoons white sugar (can use all or part brown sugar for a gentler scrub)
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons olive oil (can substitute jojoba oil or almond oil)
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)


1.  Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
2.  Apply to your lips with your fingers or a toothbrush.  Gently scrub in small circles for 10 seconds.
3.  Rinse well.  Follow with your favorite lip balm.

This recipe makes enough scrub for several uses.  Store up to a week before discarding.
