Denver – Are you battling with dry, cracked or chapped lips? Colorado’s dry climate can be hard on our skin, especially for our lips. Licensed Esthetician Catie Wiggy shows us how to make our own natural lip scrub and lip balm.
Here’s the recipe if you want to make it yourself.
DIY Coconut Sugar Lip Scrub
1/8 cup Organic Table Sugar
1 TBSP Organic Coconut Oil softened
1 TBSP Organic Manuka Honey
2 drops of Organic Argan Oil
Mix all ingredients together and once completely mixed slather over the lips to gently exfoliate and hydrate. Make sure and always apply a good lip balm immediately after exfoliating since your lips will be more susceptible to receiving hydration.
