To treat Chapped lips…exfoliate!
Use two parts olive oil, or jojoba or coconut oil if you prefer, to one part brown sugar in a bowl. Whisk and blend it together to form a paste. It couldn’t be simpler!
If you want to get fancy, you can always add a drop of an essential oil such as lavender or peppermint. Simply use your fingertips to apply the scrub directly to your lips and buff away for about two minutes.
We used brown sugar is because it’s exfoliating, but it’s also gentle on your lips and not too harsh. Next, add the olive oil, which is also a great moisturizing agent. It leaves your lips nice and smooth. Other suggestions include:
If you don’t have any brown sugar on hand, using white or raw sugar can
work, too. It’s just a little rougher, so be careful that you don’t exfoliate
too hard – be gentle.
Can’t wait to wear red, or other bright, dark lipstick? Smooth lips before
are a must! Scrub first.
Lip scrub helps buff away dead skin cells and smooth out lips, but don’t
forget to drink lots of water to hydrate from the inside out….one of the best tip!
