Lip Exfoliation DIY | the lazy girl way

by - January 24, 2015

My name is Teresa and I suffer from a bad case of dry winter lips... {{hello Teresa}}. But I also suffer from laziness. Yes, I am too lazy to make my own organic DIY lip scrub and never seem to remember the importance of buying a lip exfoliator when I am in Sephora.

But I do have a easy method of lip exfoliation which has generally worked well for me the past 100 years or so.

This is what you are going to need;
  • a damp cotton face cloth
  • any thick lip balm or lip butter (sans peppermint oil and methanol)
  • brown sugar

these are my super dry lips {{{ick}}} 

Step 1: Gently rub your lips with the damp face cloth. This will pull up any dead skin.

Step 2: Apply the balm liberally. You want it kind of goopy. The brown sugar needs something to stick to.

Step 3: Dab the brown sugar on your lips and gently rub for about 30 seconds.

Step 4: Wipe off with damp face cloth and then reapply lip balm or favorite lip butter to soothe your lips and to keep them hydrated.

Voila kissable lips!

Super easy right? Sometime I get even lazier and just rub my lips with a damp face cloth before I go to bed and apply balm.
How do you keep your lips ship shape in the winter?

    I've been using one of the Lush lip scrubs, but I always feel silly buying lip scrub when like you have just shown, it's super cheap and easy to DIY!

    1. I must love the Live Clean lip balms as I have multiple in my purse, desk and car. My dogs like them to cuz I keep finding them chewed up. They don't last long at Chez Teresa LOL
