Have you ever exfoliated your lips? It is one of my favorite quick beauty tricks. In Iowa, I have to deal with nasty cold winter winds and hot summer days where staying hydrated is an issue. My lips can quickly become dry and cracked. Increasing my fluid intake and applying lip balm doesn't always do the trick. Then my sister told me to exfoliate them. What a difference it makes!
However, I don't like the idea of paying $10 or so for an organic lip scrub every time I need more, even one as delicious as this one, so I had to go hunting for some easy DIY lip scrub recipes! Use one of these 21 homemade lip scrubs to have super soft and healthy lips!
