Keep your lips exfoliated and hydrated this fall and winter with this DIY pumpkin spice lip scrub. Your lips will love the skin nourishing ingredients and it tastes super yummy too!
I don’t know about you, but my lips get super dry and chapped during the fall and winter months.
I apply lip balm all throughout the day. But sometimes it’s just not enough to combat the dryness.
Lip balm isn’t very effective if it’s being applied to dead skin. The dead skin needs to be removed in order for the lip balm to penetrate your skin properly.
The key to soft, smooth, moisturized lips is consistent exfoliation and I have a super yummy lip scrub recipe that will do just that!
This homemade pumpkin pie lip scrub is not only delicious but it will completely wipe away dry, dead skin to reveal kissable, hydrated lips.

How Do You Make Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub?
This homemade lip scrub is super easy to make. You’ll just need a small container like this one and the following ingredients.
- 3 Tablespoons of Sugar
- 1/2 Tablespoon of Coconut Oil
- 1 teaspoon of Pumpkin Spice
- 1 Tablespoon of Manuka Honey
- 10 Drops of Vitamin E
Try to use organic ingredients whenever possible. You can use brown sugar or white sugar. Either one will work.
If you don’t have coconut oil you can use almond oil instead. But keep in mind, coconut oil tastes a lot yummier!
The vitamin E isn’t 100% necessary but it does add some extra skin healing benefits. Plus, it also adds to the lip scrubs shelf life.
Manuka honey is preferred because of its antibacterial properties. You can click here to learn more about the amazing benefits of Manuka honey.
Manuka honey can be kind of pricey though so if you’d rather use raw honey instead you can.
Simply add all the ingredients above to your container and mix well. And that is all there is to it!
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1 tbsp Manuka honey
- 10 drops vitamin E
Using your fingertips apply about a pea size amount to your lips. Using circular motions massage gently into your lips. Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Make sure to apply lip balm right after to seal in the moisture.
How Do You Use Homemade Pumpkin Spice Lip Scrub?
This lip scrub is just as easy to use as it is to make. Using your fingertips apply about a pea size amount to your lips. Using circular motions massage gently into your lips.
Rinse thoroughly with warm water. Make sure to apply lip balm right after to seal in the moisture.
This lip scrub can be used up to twice a week.
How Long Do You Leave Lip Scrub On For?
You only need to massage in the lip scrub for about a minute. It isn’t necessary to leave it on any longer than that.
Make sure to use a gentle motion when applying to your lips. Over-exfoliating is really bad for your lips because it can cause small cuts. So be careful!
This DIY pumpkin spice lip scrub should stay good for about 3 weeks as long as you store it in the refrigerator and do not allow any water to get inside the container.
