Sometimes not even all the cherry Chapstick in the world can soften your dry lips. Luckily, I’ve found a trick that keeps my lips soft all day even living this desert life. This beauty secret only takes a couple of seconds, too!
During your morning (or evening) routine, while brushing your teeth, take a couple of seconds to exfoliate your lips by simply brushing them with your toothbrush. You will instantly notice a difference. Add a little lip balm when you’re done, and voila! You’ve got soft, kissable lips all day long.
If you want to upgrade this simple beauty routine into a supreme lip-softening affair, try this uber-simple DIY home recipe to exfoliate and soften lips:
Simply dab some of the scrub on your toothbrush and gently scrub away. Lips will be exfoliated, smooth and soft. I actually find it sort of calming to do. The sugar acts as a great exfoliant – you could also use sea salt as a substitute but be warned, that could sting a bit. We’re going for beauty, not irritation!
