Dry, scaly lips can be a problem all year round and we all know winter is when most people have cracked, dehydrated, chapped and even bleeding lips. The effect of cold temperatures and low humidity.
The best natural remedy is to exfoliate your lips. I thought I’d share 3 simple do-it-yourself remedies.
1. Using petroleum jelly (not my favourite plus this doesn’t absorb but it does soften) and a toothbrush. Cover up your lips with petroleum jelly. Using a toothbrush, gently massage the jelly in a circular motion. Wipe off the excess to reveal smooth lips. For healing, apply Kbodyblends lip balms that deliver cocoa butter, Shea butter, mango butter, coconut oil and beeswax for nourishment and healing.
2. Using organic coconut oil. Apply to your lips and then scrub in a circular motion with a wet, warm washcloth. This will exfoliate your lips to make them smooth and supple. If you don’t have coconut oil, you can substitute with extra virgin olive.
3. Finally honey & brown sugar lip scrub. Mix a small amount of each together and use to scrub your lips. Add a drop of water to loosen it up if you need to. Remember licking your lips only dries them more. Make sure to always apply a healthy lip balm for healing and comfort.
