I've received a lot of positive feedback on my recent green tea sugar scrub recipe
which inspired my newest post! Sugar scrubs are such an easy and inexpensive way to nourish your skin at home but their benefits aren't limited to your arms and legs. Did you know you can also make a sugar scrub for your lips?
Lip sugar scrubs help gently exfoliate your lips and leaves them silky smooth for your favorite lipstick or smooch session. The peppermint creates a pleasant tingling sensation on your lips, increases circulation, and may even have a temporary plumping effect on your lips.
If you haven't tried a lip scrub yet you are in for a treat! Not only does it feel amazing it tastes delicious. I can't resist licking this scrub off of my lips. Keep reading for the recipe below.
