How to make your own exfoliating lip scrub

Pampering your pout by exfoliating your lips regularly is a sure way to keep them smooth and hydrated. This makes your lips look plump, kissable, flake-free and ready for lipstick. A lot of people think lip balms are the only way to combat dry lips.

But exfoliating is a crucial first step that must be added to your lip care routine. Exfoliation gets rid of the dead skin that clings to the surface of your lips as well as promotes new healthy cell growth. There are many great lip scrubs on the market, but why buy when you can make it at home? Making it is cheaper, more natural and extremely simple.

To begin, you will need:

  • A small jar
  • 3 tablespoons of sugar (raw, brown or white)
  • 1 tablespoon of oil (coconut, jojoba or olive oil)

Step 1: Begin by placing the oil in a small bowl and gradually adding the sugar. You want to reach a thick, paste-like consistency.

Step 2: Mix all the ingredients together well, then transfer your fresh sugar lip scrub into a small jar.

That's it! For application, add a good amount of the lip scrub onto your fingertip and rub on your lips with your finger for 1-2 minutes. When you are finished, rinse off the sugar lip scrub with warm water and follow up with a coat or two of your favorite lip balm to lock in all that moisture.

Runway Rogue lipsticks are especially great to use after exfoliating, because the formulas contain many lip-nourishing ingredients such as jojoba oil, safflower oil and aloe vera. Jojoba oil adds hydration and softens the skin; safflower oil improves the quality and texture of the skin, preventing dryness and roughness; and aloe vera is an amazing healing agent and effective moisturizer for skin.

This scrub is also the perfect lip prep for our Runway Rogue long wear liquid lipsticks, by removing dead skin before application. It will make the application of our non-drying formula even more smooth and even.

You can store your lip scrub in your refrigerator for up to one week. Try making bigger batches, placing them in jars and passing them out to friends and family. Remember: Let a woman borrow your lip scrub, she can exfoliate for a day. Teach her how to make her own lip scrub, and she'll have soft, fresh lips for the rest of her life:)
