DIY Hydrating & Exfoliating Lip Scrub

Lippity Bippity BOP: Pretty Lips For You

If you read my previous blog post here, you will know that exfoliation is one of the key steps to keeping your lips “kissable.” Constantly unveiling new, young cells keeps the lips from looking old and dull. You can of course buy a lip scrub like this one, but it can be much cheaper (and more fun) to make your own!

So whether you’re ballin’ on a budget, or an artsy fartsy type– here’s a simple yet effective recipe for your lips:

DIY Luscious Lip Scrub 


1 TBS Oil (coconut, almond, olive, any oil works!)

2 TBS Sugar (white, brown, coconut, etc)

Small Glass Container With Lid

Optional: Two Drops Of Your Preferred Essential Oil ( I like Peppermint, it’s so invigorating!)


Mix oil and sugar, then the essential oils, and blend! If you want to make a larger batch, keep the same ratio 1 part oil to 2 parts sugar. These also make great gifts!

TIP: if you want, you can make a much larger batch and actually use it on your body as a body scrub! Just NOT your face, the manual exfoliation is way too harsh for your gentle skin.

And that’s it! Super super simple, and cost effective.

Do you have any other tips for keeping your lips nice and pretty?
