natural exfoliating coffee lip scrub

August 21, 2014

coffee_lip_scrub_6 As I have shared before, I love to keep my beauty routine as natural as possible. While I am pretty good at sticking to the routine, I tend to overlook one area, my lips. I don’t know about you, but I notice that my lips are the first to show signs of the elements, whether it is being out in the sun, swimming or the change of the seasons that is upon us. This exfoliating lip scrub has only 2 ingredients (and 2 of my favorite things) that are probably already in your cabinet – coffee and coconut oil.The coffee helps to gently exfoliate while the coconut oil is super moisturizing and has natural antimicrobial properties.

To make, simply combine one part coarsely ground coffee to one part coconut oil.

 

Mix well until a paste forms. Gently rub on your lips in a cricular motion. rinse off with warm water, pat dry, and follow up with your favorite lip moisturizer (or just more coconut oil).

 

The scrub will last 2-3 weeks in the fridge.coffee_lip_scrub_5
