I am sure we all are guilty of paying closer attention to the latest hue of matte lipstick than we do to our lip care regimen.For every girl, matte lips are just awesome! Matte lips always look incredibly gorgeous and pretty. And I guess it’s pretty OK to make a bold beauty statement whenever you feel like. I myself is a huge fan of matte lipstick and tried this popular trend several times.
But what about the chapped or dry lips!! One of the most difficult things to deal with, and it most certainly doesn’t make your lips appear healthy and well look especially when you apply your favorite shade of matte lipstick.
Whether it’s a matte lipstick or a lip stain, your favorite product will get chunky and show every failed attempt on cracked and dry lips and then we start thinking that we bought a wrong product but that’s not the case, the product is correct only the way of application we need to work on.

Exfoliating your lips is almost crucial if you are planning to make this trend your signature style. Weighting for what? Time to get your hands in the kitchen and make your own. I know that there are millions of lip scrubs available across the world that will help you to exfoliate your lips, but trust me you can get some amazing results with things you have in your own kitchen!
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 Tablespoon of salt
1.5 Tablespoon of sugar
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 Tablespoon of Vaseline or any petroleum jelly
Your Favorite tinted lip balm(optional)
WHAT TO DO:
Mix all ingredient in a small bowl and make a nice even creamy texture with the help of a wooden spatula. The lip balm is not really necessary since the moisture content we would be getting from olive oil and Vaseline a well but if you want to make things look pretty just like me you can add lip balm it will also give a nice smell to your scrub.
Now add salt and then sugar. Are you wondering why I added salt; well salt particles are much finer than most sugars and will give you a better exfoliation… so I add both.
Once the texture is rich and grainy you are done! Now you can store it in an empty container in your fridge for multiple.
This lip scrub has super powers! Not only does it make your lips superrrrrrrrr soft but healthy too!
