5 Lip Exfoliants Made With Products We All Have at Home

In addition to drinking lots of water and using sunscreen, it’s important to exfoliate your skin to keep it soft and free of dead skin cells. This includes every part of our face including, of course, our lips.

That’s why 5-Minute Crafts compiled tips to make 5 lip exfoliants that you can make at home quickly by using ingredients that are easy to get or that you probably already have in your kitchen.

1. Honey

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of brown sugar
  • You can add any essential oil of your preference to the mix, but read the instructions carefully, as some can be harmful if used in high quantities.
  • Apply to your lips, massage with circular movements, and rinse with cold water.

2. Coffee

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of ground coffee
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Once applied, leave on for 5 minutes, and rinse with warm water. Afterward, moisturize your lips with Vaseline or lip balm.
  • If the coffee doesn’t stick to your lips, try to use coffee that is more finely ground.

3. Salt

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • Stir until a firm mixture is obtained. Add a little more salt if necessary.
  • Apply by massaging your lips in a circular motion and rinse with cold water.

4. Baking soda

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 1 tbsp baking soda
  • ⅓ tbsp of olive oil
  • You will get a smooth and creamy mixture. Apply by massaging gently and leave on for 2 minutes. Then, rinse with warm water.

5. Sugar

What you’ll need:

  • 1 tbsp of Vaseline
  • 1 tbsp of white sugar
  • You have to stir for a while so that both ingredients are well combined.
  • Apply the mixture to your lips, massage it, and leave it to work for a few minutes. Remove it with warm water and a towel.

General tips for having soft lips:

  • After exfoliating your lips, use a moisturizer to hydrate them and finish the process.
  • Store your natural exfoliants in a cool, dry place in a glass container. If you detect strange consistencies or aromas, avoid using them.
  • Do not exfoliate your skin more than necessary, as this could generate lesions or irritation. In general, it is recommended to exfoliate your lips once a week and to do it during the night.
  • If you detect allergic reactions, avoid using any of the products we mentioned above and instead opt for hypoallergenic exfoliants.
  • Remember that exfoliants are only a complement to healthy skin. Drink plenty of water, eat healthily, and use lip balms with sunscreen.
