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 â€“ and our lips in particular â€“ 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 â€“ best at room temperature â€“ 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.
