Beauty 101 : Homemade Lip Exfoliator



Today's Beauty 101 tip is a simple homemade lip exfoliatior. The lips normally get forgotten about when we exfoliate our face, but it only takes 2 household ingredients to polish those babies right up! Have you ever exfoliated your lips? It makes a huge difference in how your lipstick applies and lasts. It also simply makes your lips feel fantastic.













Add this to your routine at least twice a month to ensure beautiful lips! And definitely do this before wearing a bold lip color so your lipstick looks great all day!

  1. Gorgeous, dahling!

    I do this, too. It's so much cheaper than buying a lip mask or a lip exfoliator. Sometimes I add in a little olive oil if my lips need some extra moisture.

  6. Love how simple this recipe is! I've always purchased a product and used that at least once a month. But, with this homemade recipe - I can definitely use it more often. It seems so easy.
    Thanks for sharing.

  7. This is great! Something quick I sometimes do in place of this is just rubbing my toothbrush over my lips after brushing. :-)

  12. Love this! What's the policy on snacking on the leftover exfoliator...? ;)

    I love doing my lip exfoliations right before bed. Then I put on some heavy duty lip balm and when I wake up in the morning I feel like a new woman! Right now I have the Mary Kay lip exfoliation set but I'll have to try your homemade version after this runs out... looks like it works great and might be a bit lighter on the beauty budget! :)

    Thank you!

  19. This sounds so creepy since I've never met you but an avid blog follower (and thanks to your tutorials, so many compliments I've gotten!), but I barely recognized you in the last/finished product photo. You and your hubby must be definitely getting fit getting ready for the Tri-Race you two are doing soon! I always hate to say this over the internet because it can get misunderstood, but you look so fabulous and skinny! Just STUNNING!

    Dried out lips are definitely on the top of my "How do I fix this" skin care problem, so thanks for an easy and affordable regimen!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Modern news, Supreme natural soaps! Using natural soap is the best thing for your skin because you are nourishing it with natural oils, not drying it out. The lather that our soap creates is extremely creamy & bubbly, leaving your skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.
