1/2 cup sugar: Sugar naturally draws moisture to your skin and keeps skin hydrated. It is also a natural exfoliant that permeates the cells, giving you fresher and younger-looking skin.
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil (or coconut or almond oil)
7 drops peppermint extract: It smells amazing, and mint is known for its calming properties and as a headache remedy.
1/2 lemon zest: Lemons are rich in vitamin C and can boost collagen in skin, making the skin brighter. Lemons help remove dead skin cells and dried skin. (Note: If making this scrub exclusively for chapped lips, skip the lemon! If making it for your body, lemon is an invigorating ingredient.)
Simply mix all the ingredients in a small container, seal it, and store in the refrigerator. Use this scrub twice each week for the best results. You can also try this recipe with other scents: Lavender, orange, or eucalyptus essential oils are all good choices. Your lips will thank you!
