When you use a good lip scrub, you can exfoliate your lips and remove the dry, flaking skin that may have built up there. After all, you can’t always achieve the shine, softness, and smoothness you want for your lips without exfoliation.

Scrubbing and exfoliating our lips is recommended one to three times per week. If you have cracked lips, you want to make sure to moisturize before exfoliating. Otherwise, you will end up making them worse.

Most areas of our skin contain oil glands. That is not the case with our lips. Since our lips cannot produce their own moisture, we need to give them a helping hand.

Take a look at some of the easiest DIY lip scrubs you can make at home to exfoliate your lips, boost their shine, and make them softer:

DIY Mint Lip Scrub

Mint provides a refreshing scent and a cooling effect that can be good for dry lips. It also helps heal cracked lips, which is why it is one of the more popular active ingredients you can find in many commercial lip balms and lip glosses.

Start by combining the sugar and coconut oil. It is easier to do this when the oil is solid. You can then slowly add in the mint essential oil. Feel free to use more or less of it, depending on your personal preferences. Keep in mind, however, that mint essential oil is strong. Next, add the vanilla extract and mix well. Place the mixture into your lip scrub container.
