5 Face Exfoliation Tips

Use a Toothbrush (On Your Lips!)

Even if your face isn't dry and flaky, chances are your lips get that way every once in a while – especially in the winter months when temperatures and humidity drop. When chapped lips strike, gently scrub away dead skin with a soft toothbrush. First, apply a thin layer of lip balm or Vaseline, and then gently rub the bristles in small circles on and around your lips. If you want to get creative, you can also make your own lip scrub using equal parts honey and sugar. Rub it gently into your lips using your fingers, wipe off with a damp washcloth, and always apply a hydrating lip balm afterward to lock in moisture. [Scott]
