Homemade Sugar Lip Scrub

Ever since getting Invisalign I've been suffering from a mild case of chapped lips. After a fruitless attempt at purchasing an inexpensive exfoliant at the drug store, I decided to make my own! I adapted the recipe from this source.


Here's what you'll need to make your own Sugar Lip Scrub:

-3 tablespoons white granulated sugar
-1 1/2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
-3 drops peppermint extract
-2-3 drops of red food coloring
-Small container for storage

Mix everything together in a small bowl. You can play around with the type of oil and the type of extract you use but I chose olive oil and peppermint because they were readily available and relatively inexpensive compared to some of the other choices. I found the small plastic containers in the travel toiletry section at WalMart (2 for $1)...one batch of the scrub will fill two of these small containers. The scrub leaves my lips so soft and tastes yummy, too!!
