Around this time of year, my lips are always getting chapped due to the cold winter weather and lack of moisture in the air. Beside using lots of lip balm, I have found exfoliating my lips every couple days really helps them stay in the best shape. I made this simple lip scrub with a few ingredients I had in my pantry and can’t get enough of its amazing scent. I recommend using it during or after you shower and would apply a lip balm afterwards.

What you’ll need:
Coconut oil
Brown sugar
Almond extract

lip scrub

1. Using a two to one ratio of brown sugar to coconut oil, mix together the two ingredients in a bowl.
 
2. Add a teaspoon of almond extract to the mixture. You can add more or less of the almond extract (or swap it for vanilla extract, if you prefer) depending on how strong of a scent you prefer.

3. Once all mixed together, place in an air tight storage container (I got mine here). Enjoy!
