Although our new “quarantine life” is currently preventing us from visiting our favourite beauty professionals, it’s given us instead, an unprecedented opportunity to become resourceful and recreate these self-care luxuries in the comfort of our own homes.
While consideration for our hair, nails and skin is at the top of everyone’s list, little thought and attention is actually given to our lips. As the weather gets cooler, it’s not uncommon to begin to feel the impact of the winter chill, and although we all have our favourite lip balms and moisturising products, it’s important to treat your lips like any other part of your skin – which means it’s time to exfoliate, guys!
Introducing the at-home lip scrub that has been given the Kourtney Kardashian tick of approval. This organic (obviously), DIY solution is made with anti-inflammatory honey and skin buffing sugar to give your lips the rejuvenation they desperately need!
During an interview for Vogue Beauty Secrets, the mother of three shared that she loves to incorporate a lip scrub into her beauty routine, especially if she’s planning on wearing a super bright or dark lip, as it ensures the skin is incredibly soft and uncracked for perfect lip colour application.
The clean-beauty aficionado combines equal parts honey, coconut oil and organic raw sugar to create her concoction. "I just keep these products in my bathroom so that I can make them anytime," she says while swiping the mixture across her lips.
If it means bagging a pout like Kourt K, you best believe we’ll be trying this simple DIY recipe this #SelfCareSunday. However, if you prefer to leave the logistics up to the professionals, we’ve rounded up our favourite lip scrubs for you to shop now!
