How to Exfoliate Your Lips and DIY Lip Scrub

Exfoliating your lips is a must to keep them healthy and look in good shape. But learning how to clean your lips is important to avoid damage. Damage or dryness on your lips can be caused by several things, such as the humid weather in India, exposure to UV radiation from the sun, not taking care of your lips properly, or worry. 

Using Nivea products and a lip care routine that includes a homemade lip scrub, you can easily remove dead skin from lips and make them look healthier. You should use an exfoliating lip treatment once or twice a week to clean your lips fully and make them look fresh.


1. Make sure your lips are clean of makeup before you start

2. Gently exfoliate lips using a toothbrush or flannel to get rid of dead skin

3. Use a humidifier to help keep the air around you moist

4. Use a  hydrating moisture lip balm after exfoliating in the morning or just before hopping into bed at night

When exfoliating your lips, remember these important tips. 


Be careful not to scrub your lips too hard when you clean them. Instead, use a toothbrush to gently scrub your skin by moving it in small circles. This will help remove dead skin cells, which are very soft, without hurting your lips.

Also, it's important to remember that too much exfoliation can dry out and irritate the skin. So, it would help only to exfoliate your lips once or twice a week to keep their natural wetness and avoid damage. Using these tips, you can get healthy-looking lips that are soft and smooth.


Limit your lip care exfoliation routine to once a week; this is sufficient for removing dry skin and maintaining soft, supple lips. To further enhance your lip care routine, it's essential to keep them hydrated throughout the day. Regularly moisturize lip balm, especially after exfoliating, to lock in moisture and prevent dryness. 

Another important factor for general lip health is drinking enough water. Keep in mind that moisturized lips resist drying out and cracking more easily, guaranteeing a gorgeous, flawless smile.


It's crucial to often use lip care products, such balms, when you go outside to protect your lips from the sun's damaging rays. To provide continual protection, don't forget to reapply these lip care products often.


After exfoliating your lips, it is recommended to rehydrate them with a nivea lip balm that is rich in moisture.

You have total control over the ingredients when you make your own lip scrub, so your lips will receive a customized and nutritious treatment. You may mix and match flavors and smells in a DIY lip scrub to make it exactly as you want it. You can even use natural ingredients. Making your own lip scrub at home will result in a really restorative and environmentally responsible lip care regimen.
