After sharing this tried and true skincare DIY, I was intrigued to try more beauty DIYs and discovered this easy DIY sugar lip scrub. And it’s pineapple infused. Any pineapple fans out there? I know I am one! Ready to dive into this super-simple recipe? There are only 4 ingredients!
I love a good matte, longwear lipstick, but those are notoriously dry so I am always on the hunt for a good lip scrub and moisturizer to keep them ready for the next matte lipstick I want to wear. If you want to see what I use to keep my lips moisturized, let me know! I’ll be happy to do a post featuring my favorite lip balms and masks!
DIY Sugar Lip Scrub, Pineapple Flavor
DIRECTIONS | First step is to purée enough fresh pineapple to yield 2 tablespoons worth. Set it aside for now and grab another small mixing bowl. Add the sugar and coconut oil, stir well. Add in the pineapple purée — or pineapple flavoring — and 2 drops of Vitamin E oil and stir until well incorporated. Store in an airtight container and keep in a refrigerator for up to 7 days if you used fresh pineapple purée. If you used the pineapple extract/flavoring instead of the purée it will keep for up to 3 month.
This will make enough DIY sugar lip scrub to fill roughly two small lip balm containers. How to use this is pretty straight forward, but I thought I would share how I like to use my lip scrubs. After I’ve brushed my teeth for the night — while my lips are still wet — I’ll generously apply the DIY sugar lip scrub and gently massage it onto my lips in small circular motions to allow the sugar granules to exfoliate any dry or dead skin and the coconut oil to moisturize. Rinse with warm water and pat dry with a towel and finish off with your favorite lip balm.
And there you have it! Pretty simple and straight forward, right? Just like a DIY sugar lip scrub should be! If you’re not a DIY type of person, I’ve got you covered — this $3 one will last you months!
