Many people are prone to getting chapped lips, especially in the winter time. A lot of the lip balms said to help with chapped lips don't remove the dry skin. A lip exfoliant is needed in order to remove the dead skin cells. This exfoliant will leave your lips soft, smooth, and very kissable.
Things You'll Need
- 1 tsp. petroleum jelly
- New toothbrush
- 1 tsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. olive oil
In a small cup or bowl, mix the petroleum jelly and olive oil together.
Mix in brown sugar and stir until it is mixed completely.
Using your toothbrush or your index finger, dab a small amount of the mixture onto your lips.
Rub the mix in small circles on your lips, being sure not to miss the very corners.
Wet a towel, then use it to remove the excess mixture from your lips. Apply a lip balm containing SPF.
Tips & Warnings
- Use this mixture about once every two weeks and more in the winter when the air is very dry, causing chapped lips.
- You may place your mixture in a small empty lip gloss tin to use when you're out and about.
