10 DIY Lip Scrubs

Weather, dehydration, and everyday activities like eating can wreak havoc on your lips, making them rough and flaky and impossible to apply color to. No look is complete without healthy, supple lips. This is achieved by making sure your lips are regularly exfoliated. Aim for at least once a week or as needed if your lips tend to get especially dry and chapped. Here are some amazing recipes to get you started!
