7 Easy to Prepare Lip Scrub Recipes for the Perfect Pout Look

One thing I always say is that buying a lip scrub is a wastage of money. And this is the reason why I have never compiled the best lip scrub in India.

Just like a body scrub, you can easily prepare a lip scrub at home. Dermatologists say that our lips are the driest part of our bodies. It happens as the water content is low in that facial area. So, lips get parched easily. And thus, special care is needed for these tender babies.

If your lips are already dried and patchy, it would not help you much if you keep rubbing lip balms. You need a mild moisturizing exfoliation to start with. So, let’s start treating those chapped lips.

1. Coffee Espresso for Your Lips

Coffee grounds are amazing to take away dead cells. Check out how wisely you can use coffee powder to treat chapped lips.

  • Massage mildly for 15-20 seconds and wash off. Apply a lip balm of your choice afterwards.
