Are you facing the problem of dry and chapped lips?

Well, worry not. All you need is to stick up with me for 3-4 minutes. Today we’re gonna discuss the top DIY lip scrubs using the secret ingredient – Brown sugar.

Why lips scrub?

Yeah, that must be the first question that should pop up in your head. If it didn’t – well you can scroll down to DIY’s. Just kidding though!!

In winters, the harsh cold air sucks the moisture. As a result, your skin will be dry, cracked and chapped. To keep your skin moisturized, you should exfoliate it.

Some of you must have heard – Use facial scrubs on lips. Ladies, it’s a big lie. The skin on lips is very delicate as compared to your face or body. Therefore, you better treat your lips with scrubs that are for lips.

Why Brown sugar?

The list of ingredients for making a lips scrub are very long. But the reason, I chose brown sugar because of it’s grainy texture. This is strong enough to scrub away dead skin cells and leave your lips moisturized for the longest time.

There are number of exfoliators you can make using brown sugar. And I’ve got the best resultant DIY’s. Let’s get started-
