Exfoliation is key for healthy skin. The process removes dead skin cells and revitalizes the surface of your skin, lowering your risk of conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis. As long as you’re gentle, a good exfoliant can take your skin care routine to the next level. Yet, when you’re exfoliating, don’t forget about your lips! During the colder months, chapped lips are a reality for a lot of us, so we recommend keeping a good lip scrub around. We’ve rounded up a few of our favorite DIY lip scrubs that are easy, quick, and show real results. Plus, you might even already have these ingredients in your kitchen. Affordability and smooth lips? Yes, please!
