How to Make Your Own Lip Scrub at Home

A lip scrub will help keep your lips smooth and hydrated. Here’s how to make one at home.

The change in seasons can often wreak havoc on our skin and our lips are no exception. As autumn arrives and the air humidity drops and we crank our air conditioning and heating up our skin – and our lips in particular – can become a little dehydrated.

While a great lip balm will help, adding a lip scrub to your routine will help you slough away dry skin leaving lips smooth and kissable. 

Although various beauty brands make lip scrubs, they’re incredibly easy to make a home. Kourtney Kardashian is a self-confessed DIY lip scrub aficionado and has shared her go-to recipe on her own website POOSH and with Vogue.

Creating Kourtney’s must-have lip scrub is easy and only takes a few pantry staples. Just mix equal parts honey, coconut oil – best at room temperature – and organic raw sugar.  “I just keep these products in my bathroom so that I can make them anytime,” Kourtney told Vogue. 

To make an all-natural DIY lip scrub you need:

  • 1 teaspoon of Manuka honey
  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of raw sugar 

Combine all the ingredients together and your lip scrub is good to go. If you prefer a lighter scrub, you can experiment with the amount of sugar you use. You can store the scrub for up to two weeks in an air-tight container. 

Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and beauty leaders team up for coronavirus aid

The beauty and wellness industry is the latest community to join together to support those on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Drew Barrymore are just some of the industry giants raising funds.

Together, they announced Beauty United, a “grassroots coalition” which will fundraise and bring awareness to the Frontline Responders Fund. “It started as a small group of beauty + wellness founders on a Zoom call instigated by @moj. It grew rapidly as we joined forces to create @thebeautyunited,” shares Zanna Roberts Rassi, co-founder of Milk Makeup.

In a video shared online, over 40 beauty and wellness leaders pledged their support.

“As we face this global health crisis, with uncertainty, sadness, and fear, we stand in solidarity. As one family,” they shared. “As one community, we pledge to fundraise to support our first-responders, and donate personal care products to frontline healthcare workers. Now is the time to be UNITED.”

Paltrow’s brand goop joins Barrymore’s Flower Beauty, Victoria Beckham Beauty, as well as Lime Crime, Unilever, Revlon and Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Skin.

In our latest issue, Paltrow spoke to MiNDFOOD about the rise of her goop brand, facing public criticism and the importance of resilience and community. Shop MiNDFOOD online.
