I personally live where the winter air is very very dry right now and this easy and cheap DIY lip scrub has been a life saver (or a lip saver). My lips become chapped so quickly no matter how much chap stick I use. I have used a few different lip scrubs in the past, but none of them compare to this easy and cheap homemade lip scrub. You can make it any flavor or color so it is perfect for gifts too! I’d love to know if you give this a try and what you thought!

Ingredients You Need for a DIY Lip Scrub

  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Olive Oil
  • Vanilla Extract (Optional)
  • Food Coloring (Optional)
  • Small Jar or Container
  • Tarte Maracuja Oil (Optional)

The vanilla extract is for flavor so you do not need to add this. You can also use different kinds of extracts to get different flavors.

DIY Lip Scrub food coloring

The food coloring is only to make our DIY lip scrub prettier, but it is not necessary. I used neon food coloring and was a little disappointed with the end colors.

I have been loving Tarte Maracuja Oil that I received in my December Ispy and I talk all about it in my January Favorites! You can add your favorite oil as well, I just suggest using a little less olive oil if you do. In the end there should be a total of 1/2 Tsp oil.

DIY Lip Scrub Instructions

First of all you just add all of your ingredients together, stir really well, and place the final result in your jar or container.

Rub the scrub onto your clean, dry lips for about 30 seconds.

Finally you can rinse your lips off and you’re done! In addition to the DIY Lip Scrub, wearing chap stick after and throughout the day will help keep your lips smooth!


*Other good ingredients to use in addition or in replacement are brown sugar, honey, or coconut oil.


I do this DIY lip scrub about 2-3 times a week depending on how dry my lips are. What are your tips to getting rid of dry lips?
