DIY Beauty | Nightly Lip Exfoliate

After looking around for a great lip scrub and spending too much money on products that didn't work well, I experimented until I came up with this recipe. The best thing is that the ingredients are ones that are already in the kitchen! This scrub makes your lips silky smooth.

What you'll need: 
2 tbsp Sugar
2 tsp Sweet Almond Oil
2 tsp Grapeseed Oil
2 tsp Vitamin E Oil
2 drops Peppermint Essential Oil

Mix all ingredients together until it forms a thick paste, transfer mixture to a container. Use nightly before going to bed. When you wake up, your lips will feel heavenly.

About the ingredients: 
Sweet Almond Oil; acts as an emollient to keep your lips soft and smooth all day
Grapeseed Oil; hydrates, and delivers skin loving nutrients to your lips.
Meadowfoam Oil; is choked full of moisturizing essential fatty acids
Vitamin E Oil; smooths, softens and protects lips from harsh environmental element.
Sugar; acts as a natural humectant, drawing the moisturizing properties of the oils into your skin, sugar also gently exfoliates your skin, leaving your lips soft and smooth.

*Ingredients can be found at most local heath food stores or supermarkets.
