We need to scrub the dead layers off our skin to maintain smooth and young-looking skin. The same applies to the lips. We must scrub the exterior layer of our lips to make keep smooth and kissable lips. The skin of the lips is very thin and do not contain oil glands, which produces natural oils in the skin, our lips become dehydrated and chapped rather quickly without the proper care.
Advantages of exfoliating lips

  • Prevents chapped lips
  • Makes your lips pink, tender and even
  • With a smooth surface, lip cosmetics will adhere longer on your lips. This makes lipsticks, lip liner, and lip gloss much more effective and long lasting.

To make your own home made sugar lip scrub all you need is:

Ingredients required:

  • 1 tsp of Sugar – this acts as the abrasive
  • 1 tsp of Honey – which contains antibacterial properties
  • 1 tsp of Olive Oil – this provides moisture and protection

Procedure:

  1. First of all, Mix the all ingredients in a small bowl till it gets into a thick consistency.
