Soft and smooth lips are an asset to any beautiful face. But they too need proper care, just like your skin. Sometimes they become flaky and dead skin starts peeling off, which looks very bad. Besides they can become very painful too and in worst scenarios, you may notice some sort of bleeding spots too. So take charge of the situation and don’t let it reach such a point.
If you are experiencing such problems, then try these homemade lip scrub recipes which gently exfoliate your lips.
1. Simple Granulated Sugar Scrub
The best thing about this scrub is that it’s pretty quick to make and everything you need is normally there in the house. Take a little bit of granulated white sugar and mix very few drops of water in it. Don’t take too much water, else sugar will dissolve. Now gently apply this mixture on your affected lips. Rub gently in circular motion. After few minutes, wash your lips with lukewarm water. Moisturize them with olive oil.
2. Sugar-Salt Scrub

3. Honey and Sugar Scrub
This is basically same as the simple sugar scrub. But instead of water, we use honey, which further moisturizes the lips. So take some honey and granulated white sugar. Mix them and apply on your lips. Once done, wash with water and follow up by applying vaseline or olive oil on lips.
