Just like your face and body, it is very important to exfoliate your lips as well. Exfoliating your lips will help your lips to stay away from chapping and dryness. There are plenty of lip exfoliators available in the market but most of us avoid it. You need not be dependent on those expensive lip exfoliators to take care of your lips. You can scrub your lips with homemade exfoliators that can do wonders to your lips. Homemade exfoliators are natural and hence, you need not be worried about the side-effects that you have to face later.
7 Homemade Lip Exfoliators:
Sugar, Olive Oil And Vanilla Essence
Take some sugar and heat it with olive oil. The sugar will start to melt so at that point of time, you can add some vanilla essence. Most of us don’t prefer homemade scrub because we miss the amazing smell that we get in the cosmetics that we buy from the market. Adding vanilla essence to the exfoliator will ensure that this homemade exfoliator smells better than that of the readily available exfoliator. You can use this exfoliator, weekly thrice for better looking lips.
