Just like our body and face need care, our lips need it too! As they are a sensitive area with a little care, they can maintain beautiful color and shape. Using a lip scrub not only nurtures, but it will help minimize, and even eliminate dry, cracked lips. Especially in the winter months.
And if you are concerned about what kind of lip scrub is the right one, making your own homemade lip scrub is the best solution. It will give the best lip exfoliation, and it is super-easy to make. Plus, the homemade lip scrubs are made of ingredients that are quite tasty and edible! So, there is no need of a panic if the scrub gets into your mouth and you accidentally swallow it.
We have one super-easy and delicious Pumpkin-Spiced Coffee Homemade Lip Scrub. This scrub has a grainy texture combined with moisturizing ingredients and vitamin A-filled pumpkin, that will give your lips a great care. Coffee and sugar provide the perfect exfoliating texture. Coffee contains antioxidants while the sugar helps provide a more youthful appearance to the lips due to the natural glycolic acid it contains. Sugar is also a natural humectant that will deliver some moisture to those lips. Pumpkin, on the other hand, is high in vitamins A and E and is pretty amazing for the skin as it promotes cell rejuvenation. Plus, it smooths and brightens the skin.
