DIY Beauty Recipe: Au Naturel Lip Scrub

There’s nothing better than knowing that your favourite beauty recipes are simple DIYs. One such DIY, and the one I end up using the most, is my Au Naturel Lip Scrub.

3 ingredients paired with your daily lip balm, and your lips are guaranteed to be smooth and plump. So forget all lip-plumping balms and creams that you buy for thousands of bucks. You’ll probably find the best solutions in your kitchen cabinets, so take a look at this method and I’m sure you’ll never buy another expensive lip serum again.

1 teaspoon (1)

You will need:

1 teaspoon honey (I prefer using organic)

1 teaspoon olive oil (extra virgin, regular, take your pick)

1 teaspoon brown granulated sugar (make sure it’s not too powdery)


Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl/box that you can cover and keep for later use.

Apple a small amount over your lips and scrub for a good 5 minutes.

Wash/wipe clean with luke warm water. Apply a thick coat of your favourite lip balm.

I use this lip scrub at least two-three times a week, especially before applying lipstick since it evens out and smoothens my lips.

It’s my go to DIY beauty recipe. Give it a try!
