How to Exfoliate Your Lips for a Silky-Smooth Pout

Say goodbye to rough, flaky lips with these lip scrub tips.

With everyone getting on the matte lipstick trend, it's no surprise more and more women are suffering from dry, flaky lips. And while lip balms, masks, and treatments do help, it's the lip scrub that's going to eliminate those flakes. So here's how you can do a lip scrub at home.

Get the products

You can always opt to purchase a lip scrub to do the work for you. Here are some suggestions:

DIY Lip Scrubs

Lip scrubs are super easy to make, and it's great for ladies who don't want to buy a ready-made lip scrub. Simply mix a teaspoon of olive oil (or liquid lip balm) and sugar into a bowl, and then apply a bit of the mixture to your lips. Use a finger to gently scrub in a circular motion all over the lips. Then rinse it all off with some water and repeat as needed.

Use a Toothbrush

You can also use a super soft toothbrush to exfoliate your lips. Start off by wetting your lips and then gently scrubbing your lips with a toothbrush using circular motions. It's that easy!

A Final Tip

Once you're done exfoliating, your lips might feel a little raw. It's always a good idea to apply a lip balm or lip mask to soothe your lips afterward. Let the balm or mask sink in, and you're ready to apply your favorite lipstick!
