The ABCs of Cannabinoids
Infinite CBD • August 13, 2021
Everybody’s skin is different, and some people have naturally dry skin to begin with. Whereas, others have naturally moisturized skin despite the weather.
However, most of us have experienced dry, chapped, and/or irritated skin at some point of our lives. For some people, their lips dry out the most and the fastest, especially if the external environment is cold and dry. Good news, there are numerous natural remedies for treating dry skin like chapped and irritated lips.
Once the cold and dry weather arrives, our lips are completely exposed. At this point, they can become easily chapped and rough. This can lead to bleeding and/or cracked open lips. When this happens, many lipsticks and chap sticks won’t do much to fix this problem.
However, home-made lip scrubs can be utilized, which can provide your lips with the moisture they need. There are numerous lip scrub recipes that you can try, but most DIY lip scrubs only require a few ingredients. However, this article’s lip scrub recipe includes CBD as a special ingredient.
A few main ingredients that are used in DIY CBD-infused lip scrubs include salt, sugar, coffee grounds, coconut oil, shea butter, and essential oils. Even though salt and sugar are used in certain lip scrubs, these ingredients can sometimes irritate extremely dry and cracked lips. Therefore, if your lips are already in this state, consider replacing salt and sugar for other non-irritating ingredients like coffee grounds.
-2 tablespoons of used coffee grounds
-1/4 teaspoon of coconut oil
-1 to 2 drops of peppermint essential oil
-2 to 3 tablespoons of shea butter

-Measure out 2 tablespoons of used coffee grounds, and place it into a small bowl
