How To Store Your DIY Lip Scrub

We advise that you make the lip scrubs in small batches so that they stay fresh. These will last for a week.
Be sure to use dry and clean containers to store the lip scrubs.
You could sterilise the container you plan to use by leaving a hot water in it so that germs are killed off.
After the hot water episode, refrigerate the scrubs after they are made and make sure you use them in a week so that they don’t go bad since there are no preservatives present in them.
