Lips are an area of the face with extremely soft and delicate skin. It is affected by atmospheric conditions. Lips become dry, chapped, flaky and sometimes even chapped due to the harsh winter conditions. They need special care to restore their softness and vitality, to make them well hydrated again.
It is known that with lip balms this effect can hardly be achieved. Ready-made lip balms contain some substances that have a negative effect on the skin. That's why it's good to prepare home remedies to soften and deeply hydrate your lips.
Before that, however, it is important not to miss an essential step in lip skin care.This is exfoliation. Regular removal of the dead layer of cells with a suitable homemade scrub stimulates the renewal of lip cells, making them hydrated, soft, with elastic and uncracked skin. A scrub is an indispensable part of winter beauty care.
Here are 3 wonderful homemade scrub recipes for beautiful, juicy and tender lips in the winter season.
