While it’s true that a really awesome lip balm can heal dry lips, sometimes you just can’t manage the chap. You might live somewhere that is very brutal on your skin and lips that an ordinary lip balm can’t keep up, or you’re prepping yourself for the fall and winter season because the moisture in the air decreases.
Whatever the reason, it’s time to leave it to a homemade cinnamon sugar lip exfoliating scrub to help with your lip woes. I love it because it’ll remove the dead skin that is chapped and moisturize your rosy lips underneath. I also added cinnamon because it’s the perfect fall scent and it’ll naturally plump your lips!

DIY Cinnamon Sugar Lip Exfoliating Scrub
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon powder
- lip scrub containers
Note: Makes about 4-5 uses
Step 1. In a small bowl, mix the honey, ground cinnamon powder and brown sugar, then add the coconut oil and stir.
Step 2. Press and scrub onto lips. You don’t have to worry if it gets in your mouth because it’ll taste delicious.
Step 3. Rinse clean, scrubbing while you rinse.
Your lips will be a little sensitive after your scrub, so make sure to apply a lip balm afterwards. You can store it for a few weeks but over time it will harden.
