Dry, cracking, and peeling lips are no fun at all as they are prone to bleeding which can add to your discomfort. What’s more, the sight of your cracked lips can only mean one thing, and that is your lips are lacking the nourishment and moisture they need. Is there any way for you to revive your lips?
If your lips need some tender, loving care, you might want to consider scrubbing or exfoliating your lips. The good news is that there are already pre-made scrubs to be bought in your local beauty store, but if you want to do things yourself, why not make your own homemade lip scrubs? Here are a few that you can try out:
Raspberry lip scrub

You only need three ingredients here namely: fresh raspberries, fractionated coconut oil, and raw sugar. The first step is to mash the raspberries with a fork. You don’t need any fancy equipment for this. Put your ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. You can add more sugar or oil to it depending on your desired consistency. Afterwards, moisten your lips before applying the scrub. Scrub gently then use warm water for rinsing
Another useful scrub that you will surely love is honey. Honey has numerous benefits from keeping your lips moisturized, healing the cracks on your lips, plus it tastes good as well.
