DIY: Natural Lip Scrub


No matter how many powerful ingredients the most expensive lipstick contains, it will not get rid of the cracks on your skin in one application.

Chapped lips may be a result of weather changes, medication, wind, dehydration, sun exposure, and allergies just to name a few.

While applying lip balm will soothe them, scrubbing the accumulated dead skin off of your lips will maximize lip balm absorption and will make your lipstick glide smoother and last longer, crack-free!

The nice thing about these DIY lip scrubs is that you can do them at home at your own convenience, the ingredients are found in your kitchen cabinet, and most importantly they’re all natural and safe!

You can do this twice a week, and for a bit more fun, you can use a toothbrush to rub your lips with each method!
