How To Maintain Soft Winter Lips

Winter Survival Beauty Tips...

With this cold winter air, I find myself constantly applying chapstick. If not, my lips will became very dry. Then I end up biting off the dead skin, which is not good. I usually exfoliate my face twice a week, but I never really focus on my lips.

So recently I’ve started exfoliating my lips, to help keep them smooth and moisturized by scrubbing away dry dead skin cells.

If you want pretty lips, then this is the method for you, plus it’s helpful if you’re a fan of matte lippies.

Great thing about this, is that’s an easy quick at home DIY!

What you’ll need:

Sugar (I had white in my cabinet)

Olive Oil

or Honey (whatever you prefer)

I used a small bowl and added about a teaspoon and a half of sugar and I freestyled pouring in the olive oil until it made a paste. This will vary depending on how much you want to make.

I dabbed the exfoliate on my lips and rubbed my lips together for about 60 seconds, then  removed it with a damp towel.

Next add your favorite lip balm to keep lips moisturized. Your lips will thank you. 

If you’re not a fan of DIY, you can purchase an already made lip scrub, like The Kiss Lip Scrub from Lush.

  1. This is such a great idea! There is nothing worse than peeling lips. I nursed one tube of lip balm for a year as l couldn’t find it! Going to try this 🙂

  2. Oh my! Totally cool. I will seriously have to give this a try because I am religious for wearing lip balm and my lips are always getting dry/cracked quick. I try to stick with just one kind/brand for now, but I think it’s best to switch up right?

    1. I usually use between two different chap sticks because I’m focused on keeping my lips moisturized. I would switch it up if one is no longer working for you, but if you find one that keeps your lips feeling just right, I’d stick with it.
