How to heal dry peeling lips

shiny red lips
Are your lips still dry and peeling? Get sexy kissable lips with a little TLC. Start by giving them a gentle exfoliation. 
You can exfoliate your lips in a few ways:

A brush
Use a toothbrush or a motorized brush such as a Clarisonic brush on wet lips.

A washcloth
Use a wet washcloth on wet lips.

A scrub
Use a sugar scrub on wet lips.

Here is an easy sugar scrub recipe.

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe

1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

Mix brown sugar and olive oil together in a small bowl until smooth. Wet your lips. Apply scrub to your lips. Massage the lips and lip line in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Rinse and pat dry.

Exfoliate your lips once or twice per week. Exfoliating them more than that can over exfoliate them causing more peeling and irritation.

Now Moisturize!
After exfoliation, apply a thin layer of moisturizer. A facial moisturizer for dry or sensitive skin works well. 

Now Seal!
Next, add a lip balm to seal up the moisturizer. Some good ones to try are ESO , Blistex , Burt's Bees, Dr. Bronner's and Yes to.

Shop for lip balms

Your lips will be smooth and soft in no time

Have a Beautiful Day!
