DIY Lip Scrub

Aside from swiping on a little balm or lipstick every now and then, the lips are one of the most neglected parts of the face. But because the skin on and around the mouth is so thin, it's also one of the first to show signs of aging. Show your pout a little TLC with this simple, DIY lip facial.

What You Need

  • Eye-makeup remover
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Eye cream
  • Lip balm

Step 1

Start by removing any lipstick or gloss from your lips. For a pout-saving way to do this, apply a small dab of eye-makeup remover on a cotton pad and press against your lips, says Alina Cimpoeru, lead esthetician at the Guerlain Spa in the Towers of the Waldorf Astoria. After a few seconds, gently wipe away product.

Step 2

Exfoliate lips with this homemade scrub treatment: Mix the honey, brown sugar, and olive oil together. Use your fingers to apply the mixture to your lips and rub in using a circular motion. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

Step 3

Now that the lips have been cleansed and exfoliated, they are ready to be moisturized. You could blend in a special lip cream (like Avene Cold Cream Lip Cream, $16, or, Cimpoeru says to use a hydrating eye cream to restore plumpness and vitality, while redefining lip shape. With a little of the cream on the tips, lightly tap fingers along the lips and their contours.

Step 4

"To lock in the moisture of the lip cream, it's important to use an extraordinary balm," Cimpoeru says. Her favorite is the classic Guerlain Baume de la Ferte Lip Balm ($30,, a sweet almond oil-infused ointment that has been around for more than 100 years. But you can use your best balm as long as it protects your lips from becoming dry or chapped.

Step 5

Smile, pucker up, and enjoy your gorgeous, healthy lips!
