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)
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.
How do you keep your lips soft during these cold winter months?
