How to exfoliate your lips

If there's one thing people can agree on, it's that chapped, dry lips are never sexy. It happens to everyone, and it can be caused by wind, cold weather and, of course, licking lips to add moisture. The very thing you do to make them feel better actually makes them feel worse.
Although you can't always avoid the inevitable dryness, you can pamper your pout and restore it to its natural plump state within minutes. All you need are a few simple items and a little bit of patience. As you'll see in the video, a lip exfoliating product is key. You can buy one or make your own by combining melted coconut oil and sugar.

Materials
- Lip scrub or exfoliating product, preferably sugar-based
- Wet washcloth or soft cosmetic towel
- Lip balm or gloss
Instructions
1. Make sure your lips are slightly damp. The moisture will help break down the sugar in the exfoliating product and keep you from further damaging your lips.
2. Massage in the scrub using small circular motions. You don't need to press hard for this to work, so be gentle and thorough.
3. Gently wipe away the excess product with a wet washcloth. The moisture in the cloth will help remove the scrubbing product better than a dry tissue.
4. Before your lips dry, apply a coat of your favorite lip gloss or lip balm. Lip gloss helps hydrate lips and lip balm seals in the moisture. Whichever one you choose, your lips will immediately look healthier (and they'll feel better, too).
