DIY Lip Products to Save Your Pout

Share:

DIY lip products can be a refreshing yet natural way to treat your pout this summer. If your lips are lacking moisture and they’ve become dry and cracked, making your own scrub or serum might be the answer. SKINNEY Medspa is featured on Bustle.com in an article titled, “DIY Lip Scrub, Serum, and Lipstick Recipes to Get A Naturally Pretty Pout.” Skin experts weigh in on the effects of natural products used on our lips. Instead of running to a high-end beauty counter, consider a DIY lip treatment. Learn how to use recipes that exfoliate and rejuvenate your lips.

DIY lip exfoliants

DIY lip products can’t just be moisturizing. They need to be exfoliating, too. Exfoliating twice a week is great to get rid of dead skin cells and maintain healthy lips. Josie Holmes, an esthetician at SKINNEY Medspa, shares her favorite ingredients for a DIY lip scrub: 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, and a half teaspoon honey. Holmes says to combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Take a small amount and rub the mixture on your lips for about a minute. Wipe it away with a damp cotton pad. This scrub is suggested to be used two or three times a week.

Brown sugar is not harsh on the skin like other natural, coarse ingredients such as salt. Holmes says you can use white granulated sugar, but recipes with brown sugar store for a longer period of time. Honey helps to remove dead skin because of its lactic acid. It also acts as a humectant, which brings moisture into the skin. Coconut oil is crucial to the recipe because of its moisturizing properties. It helps bring back moisture to the lips after exfoliating, says Holmes.

DIY lip products like serums should be used because they are nourishing and hydrating. Holmes shares her recipe: 1 tablespoon organic aloe juice, 1 tablespoon hylauronic acid, and 1 tablespoon olive oil. Mix it all up and apply it to your lips with a finger. Holmes says the aloe juice is a must because it is full of vitamins and minerals that have anti-aging effects. Olive oil seals hydration into the skin and hyaluronic acid works to retain the skin’s hydration.

Combining a moisturizing base with a color could create your new favorite lipstick. Holmes says head to the kitchen and pick out fruit and vegetables. Her recipe: 1 tablespoon melted coconut, a handful of muddled and strained berries. To make the lipstick, melt the oil and add the strained berries. Combine it and put it into a small jar. Let it cool until it solidifies. Apply it with your finger.
