This is one of my favorite homemade skincare recipes because it works so well, exfoliating, plumping and softening your lips.

Every ingredient in this recipe has a cool science behind how it works, so make sure you check out the blog post for more information about this.

What you need:

• 1 tbsp pumpkin puree

• 1 tbsp brown sugar

• 1 tsp fresh coffee grounds (not instant)

• 1 tsp jojoba oil

• 2 drops of pumpkin spice essential oil

Mix the ingredients in a small bowl and use right away or refrigerate for later.

To use this homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte as a lip mask, simply layer on your lips, let it sit for five minutes, and scrub in a circular motion.

Remove with a warm microfiber cloth or regular cloth.
