Investing in a good coffee body scrub that will promote healthy skin is a great idea. If you’re looking for an affordable and effective product, check out the tutorial below to find out how to make a homemade coffee lip scrub at home using just three ingredients! The recipe calls for dark brown sugar but if you have white sugar at your disposal try it as well!
All you need are:
1/4 teaspoon of honey,
2 teaspoons of organic coconut oil and
3 tablespoons of dark brown sugar
To get started simply combine all ingredients together in a bowl and transfer them to whatever container from your pantry that you like (a jar would be great). If necessary, use some kind of utensil (like a fork) to mix everything together well.
Next, you need to massage the mixture into your dry lips and allow it to sit for 5-10 minutes. After that, you can start scrubbing! Use long strokes in the same direction (upwards is good). Then rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry. Finally, moisturize with some lip balm! The coconut oil will help keep your skin hydrated while the honey has antimicrobial properties and works well as an anti-aging agent. And lastly, the dark brown sugar will give your lips a natural (and super cute!) pink tint while exfoliating them at the same time.

1. Organic coconut oil. Scientific evidence suggests that this ingredient is good for you in almost every aspect! It has anti-aging properties, it can help with skin scars and stretch marks, it can boost the immune function of your skin (reducing chances of dermatitis), and also speeds up cell regeneration which means younger-looking skin!
2. Dark brown sugar. This natural product gently gets rid of dead skin cells without drying out your lips so you don’t have to worry if they are sensitive or not! The more you rub on your lips, the smoother they will get thanks to the antioxidants found in dark brown sugar which helps protect them from damage caused by free radicals.
3. Coffee. This ingredient is not just great for your morning cup! It can help treat acne, it’s full of antioxidants and caffeine is an effective anti-inflammatory agent too!
The antiseptic properties in coffee will even work on cold sores so if you have one at the moment when you do this DIY try not to worry because your lips will be safe! Just apply some straight away after you wash off all the scrub and watch the symptoms disappear before your eyes!
