Do’s

  • Alternatively, make your own lip scrub by mixing basic ingredients like sugar, water, salt, and honey, recommends BecomeGorgeous.com.
  • Apply a lip balm to instantly add an emollient layer to your lips.
  • However, “Watch out for lip products that contain skin irritants such as menthol, camphor, peppermint, or citrus or those that are highly fragranced,” warns cosmetics ingredient researcher Paula Begoun.
