D.I.Y. Exfoliating Strawberry Lip Scrub

Strawberry lip scrub

OK, since I’ve posted a strawberry foot scrub and a strawberry smoothie recipe earlier today I figured why not post another strawberry recipe?  (Besides, I really like strawberries and seem to be on a strawberry kick lately.)  So, here’s a recipe for a super easy to make strawberry lip scrub recipe.  It’s quick and easy to make and does a great job at exfoliating your lips, ridding them of dryness and leaving them looking healthy and moisturized.

What you need:

  • 1 small ripe strawberry
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. oil (olive, almond or coconut)

What you do:

  • Cut the green top off of the strawberry and cut the strawberry in half and place in a small bowl.  Mash the strawberry using a fork until it is a pulp-like consistency.
  • Add the sugar and then the oil to the mixture and mix until a gritty paste forms.  (If the mixture is too moist/runny, add some more sugar to it)
  • Apply the mixture to your lips and gently massage for a few moments (pursing your lips together and rubbing works well too)
  • Rinse mixture off with a washcloth and some warm water.  Follow up with a moisturizing lip balm/chapstick.

Comments:

  • If you have extra mixture leftover, you can store it in a airtight jar but only for a day or two because the strawberry will spoil…this is a mixture better used immediately and made in small batches.
