Want smooth, sexy, supple lips?  Lips need more that just a balm or gloss to keep them silky, kissable, and hydrated.  Exfoliate!  Say goodbye to dry flaky lips with these easy lip scrub recipes that use some simple ingredients from your kitchen pantry.

Lets explain a little about why you need a lip scrub.

Lip Scrub 101: What is Exfoliation?

In a nut shell, exfoliation is the removal of old dead skin cells from the surface of the skin.

Why Exfoliate?

Since lip skin does not have hair, nor does it have sweat glands or sebaceous glands, lips do not have the usual protection that keeps skin smooth and supple.  This explains why the lips have a tendency to become more easily chapped and dehydrated.  Just like our face, lips need to be properly cared for if you want a smooth lip color application that is going to last.

Lip Exfoliation Benefits:

  • Properly exfoliated lips are less prone to chapping
  • Lip color goes on more smooth
  • Lip color stays on better
