Lip exfoliation is important to add to your beauty routine, especially in these dryer months. Just like your skin, lips regenerate and need help shedding those dead skin cells. Gently exfoliating them can prevent chapping and ensure your lips are soft and supple. Exfoliation makes your lips moist and helps retain moisture longer.
A good base is the key to an even and long-lasting lip liner, lipstick, and gloss application. Lipstick won’t stick to dry, flakey lips and also looks bad. So before you apply your favorite winter lipstick, try this homemade lip scrub. Lip scrubs are made to be sweet and great-tasting so scrubbing is healthy and enjoyable.
In the past I have purchased lip scrubs that were ridiculously expensive. But I’ve realized the ingredients were pretty much things I had in my kitchen. I use this every winter and absolutely love it! It makes such a big difference in how my lips feel and look, and it is so easy to make. It also smells yummy! Lip scrubs also make cute little gifts for the holidays for friends and family by placing the scrub into little mason jars adding a label and a bow!
