DIY: Vanilla and Cinnamon Lip Scrub

Do you have chapped lips? This Vanilla and Cinnamon Lip Scrub is the best remedy. I seem to have chapped lips all winter. Sometimes, my lips are so dry and hurt so bad. I use this lip scrub to get rid of dead skins on my lips. This lip scrub is very easy to make and you can find all of the ingredients in your kitchen. 

2 tsp honey
2 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp olive oil
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
pinches of powdered cinnamon

Mix honey in the olive oil. Add the sugar and mix well to create a paste.
 Add powdered cinnamon.
 Add vanilla extract. Mix well all the ingredients.

With clean hands, apply the mixture onto your lips and allow it to set for a while. Gently massage for 20 seconds in circular motions to remove dead skins. Then rinse with warm water. Finally, finish by apply on lip balm to soothe the lips. 

My current favourite lip balm is the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment.


  1. I should try this. With all the lipstick I wear my lips are very dry.


  2. This looks so yummy! I should def try this, thanks! Are the cinnamon and vanilla just for flavor or do they have moisturizing properties too?

    1. Cinnamon helps bring blood to the surface and exfoliate you skin. Vanilla is for flavour and it smells good.
