2. MAKE YOUR OWN SCRUB
You don’t have to spend a fortune on lip scrub. Put your DIY skills to the test by making your own. Mix a teaspoon of brown sugar in a small bowl with some coconut oil to make a paste and apply it to your lips for a hydrating and effective scrub.
3. TRY A LIP MASK
Yes, you read it right, a lip mask. It’s important that the skin on your lips is treated like any other part of the face, so apply a lip mask after exfoliating to treat your lips and hydrate them.
4. USE A BALM THAT HAS OILS IN IT
You might think using an oil-based balm would leave your lips greasy but the skin on the lips can absorb quite a bit of moisture. The oil in the balm will help to create a barrier layer to lock in moisture for softer, more hydrated lips.
5. TRY USING AN EYE CREAM ON YOUR LIPS
This might seem strange but the skin on your eyes and that on your lips is similar in that they are both thin and delicate, making them susceptible to dehydration. If your lips are feeling extra battered, try using a hydrating eye cream packed with hyaluronic acid on them at night.
