DIY Cacao Sugar Lip Scrub {Only 3 Ingredients!}

Everyone’s lips need a little TLC every now and then. No, it’s not just for the girls -- men too! If you have dry, peeling, or rough lips, try this Wildly Organic DIY Cacao Sugar Lip Scrub to moisturize and exfoliate your lips back to kissable perfection!

This DIY lip scrub is super easy to make for the next time you need some quick pampering, and it’s much less expensive than anything you can find in stores! Store-bought products are full of ingredients, some are unnatural and questionable, but this lip scrub only requires THREE ingredients!

Instead of using toxic, unnatural ingredients that sink into your skin, this recipe only needs cacao powder, coconut oil, and coconut sugar — ingredients you probably already have in the kitchen!

DIY Cacao Sugar Lip Scrub

Wildly Organic Raw Cacao Powder, besides smelling incredible, gives your lips a nourishing dose of flavanols and polyphenols to help moisturize and smooth your skin. Cacao includes antioxidants, which may help to restore your skin and protect it from signs of aging.

Wildly Organic Coconut Oil is also great for your skin. It isn’t recommended for your whole face since some skin types might get clogged pores or a greater risk of acne, but you can’t go wrong with coconut oil for your lips!

Lastly, we have Wildly Organic Coconut Sugar. Since it has a rough texture, sugar helps to gently buff your lips and remove any dead skin cells. It’s extra exfoliating thanks to the alpha hydroxy acid in sugar, which breaks down and helps to remove the dead, outer layer of skin and encourages the growth of new skin cells. It’s also a humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the air into your skin for some luxurious lip hydration!

Even though cutting down on sugar in one's diet is a good idea, we can’t say enough about the awesome benefits of sugar for your skin!

You can opt for coconut sugar or brown sugar if you have sensitive lips, or try organic raw sugar or even white sugar in a pinch.

How to Make 3-Ingredient Cacao Sugar Lip Scrub 

Ingredients:

Directions:

Measure cacao powder, coconut oil, and sugar into a small cup. Mix everything up (using your finger helps to melt the coconut oil if it’s cold), and apply to your lips in small circular scrubbing motions. Leave the scrub on for 1-3 minutes, then rinse off with warm water and pat dry. 

You may notice that there’s still some dead skin on your lips after you rinse off the scrub. If so, just lightly buff your lips with a wet washcloth in small circular motions.

Follow-up with a little coconut oil or your favorite lip balm. (This chocolate lip balm is our favorite!)

Try using your cacao sugar lip scrub twice a week for a luxurious addition to your skincare regime!
