13 DIY Lip Scrub Recipes
As we all know, the winter is the best time for fashion and worst time for our skin. Sure, we can wear all the cute boots and scarves we want, but when it comes to flawless skin and soft lips as the perfect accessories, forget about it. The winter wreaks some serious damage on our skin, leaving it dry, chapped and irritated. The same goes for our lips. When it’s cold outside, our lips become drier than the Saharan desert, which makes for bad kisses and impossible lipstick application.
