While I’m trying to do all of this, especially when it comes to staying hydrated, sometimes when my lips are dry and chapped, I need a little extra help. Then I turn to my lip scrubs. Instead of trying to peel off the dead, flaky skin with your fingers (I know, gross), these scrubs are a gentler, safer option for smoothing out your lips.
It also helps that many of the scrubs are filled with moisturizing ingredients so your lips don’t stay completely peeled off and dry. I usually apply my favorite lip balm after the scrub to moisturize and really lock in that softness. When my lips are really dry (like the winter season) I tend to apply a lip scrub once or twice a week depending on how my skin feels.
