I Win for the World’s Flakiest Lips

Do you ever have those days where you wake up and expect to have your lipstick on perfectly but realize that it’s not going to happen because your lips are dry and/or chapped? Then you realize how long it’s been since you actually scrubbed the dead skin around your lips? Me too.

 Something about the dry weather makes my lips super chapped no matter how well I take care of them and if your lips get as flakey as mine do in the fall, I’ve found the perfect little lip scrub for you!

What better way to get rid of all that dead skin around your lips than this ah-mazing DIY lip scrub! One of the girls on my team swears by this scrub once a week. She brought it to the office and we all totally fell in love with it! It’s super easy to make, uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen, and the best part? It even smells like fall! Keep scrolling to discover how to make this amazing DIY Pumpkin Lip Scrub:

What You Need 
Olive Oil
Pumpkin Spice
Small Mason Jar
Tea Spoon

To make the lip scrub, basically, all you have to do is mix all the ingredients into a jar! (Told you it was super easy.) Simply:

+ Mix 1 Cup of Brown Sugar with 1 Teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice

+ Add 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil and 1/2 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract into the brown sugar mix

+ Mix everything together.

While this scrub would be great without the pumpkin spice, I just love the fall-feel it gives!  It will also stay fresh for about a month or so when you leave it at room temperature.

To use it, I just scoop out a little bit with my finger and gently rub it into my lips. I leave it on for 1-2 minutes then I pat it off with a warm washcloth to reveal super plump and soft lips. I finish up with some intense hydration to keep my lips feeling amazing! You can make as much or as little as you want, but I like making a good portion and storing it in a cute little jar to use throughout the month. If you get the little mason jars in a set (like here!) it’s also a great little treat to give to your friends!

    Great post, thanks for sharing your tips! I also have dry lips and used to wake up every morning with very flaky lips, especially since my braces were removed and I have to wear a retainer at night. Applying some Vaseline every night before bed works miracles!
