New You Beauty Tip:Exfoliate for healthy, youthful lips.

 

 

 

 

Of all the body parts to exfoliate, lips are often mistakenly ignored. The same environmental stressors that wreak havoc on the rest of our skin, are also damaging to our lips. Cold winter months, too much sun exposure and lack of moisture cause dry, cracked and unsightly lips, making it hard to wear lipstick and less than desirable to kiss. A regime of exfoliation once or twice a week is a great remedy to repair dry, cracked lips. Brands like Smashbox, Philosophy and Mary Kay all carry lip exfoliants that slosh away dead skin and leave your lips looking fresh and supple. You can also make a natural exfoliant with ingredients you already have in your kitchen.

½ teaspoon honey

½ teaspoon sugar

  1. Mix the honey and sugar together until well incorporated
  2. Massage the mixture on your lips for 2 minutes
  3. Rinse
