It’s no news that your lips shed dead skin cells just like the rest of your facial skin. That’s one of the main reasons why you get dry, flaky and chapped lips. The only way to make sure your lips remain healthy and soft is by introducing regular exfoliation in your lip care regimen. Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin buildup to give you smooth, baby soft lips. To help you out, we’ve listed five super effective lip scrubs you can include in your lip care routine right away. Check ‘em out…
- Orange lip scrub
- Lavender and honey lip scrub
- Salt and sugar lip scrub
- Coffee and coconut oil lip scrub
- Chocolate lip scrub
Orange lip scrub
This scrub is the answer to all your lip woes! While the powdered orange peel and brown sugar work as an excellent exfoliant that also treats discolouration on the lips, the almond oil helps moisturise dry, flaky lips.
- 2 tablespoon powdered orange peel
- 2 tablespoon brown sugar
- Few drops of almond oil
Take all the ingredients together and mix it all well. Once done, scoop out some of the scrub on your fingertips and rub it gently on your lips for 1-2 minutes. Then wipe it off with a washcloth and layer your lips with the Vaseline Lip Tins Cocoa Butter to seal in the moisture. Use this scrub once a week for soft, supple lips.
