How to Make a Lip Exfoliant

A Lip Exfoliant is the best solution for removal of dead skin off your lips, leaving them soft and kissable. It is easier to make exfoliant and since it has the greater benefits, especially in the winter season when the lips are dry, hard and have dead skin on them frequently, the effort to make an exfoliant is always worth made. This helps get rid of many balms and lotions, which as a matter of fact are not as effective in removal of dead skin as the exfoliant. You can also buy it from the market but can also make your own at home.

    Gentle Massage

    Using the same pointing finger, you can rub or massage your lips from one corner to other corner of both lips. Do not press too hard against your lips as it will not make a difference as far as the end result is concerned. In fact, a gentle massage of lips is more helpful than the harsh rubbing. After the massage of both lips you can leave the lips untouched for a while.
