The dry winter weather can play havoc on our lips, causing them to chap, peel and crack.  Now that warm weather is here, it's time to get those lips kissably soft.  

The first important step to healthy moist lips is to rid them of the dry skin caused by the dry, cold weather.  

Lip scrubs are usually made with sugar as the base ingredient, which acts as the exfoliant.  Once you add the rest of the ingredients and a little flavor like watermelon or bubble gum. you have a sweet tasty PINK lip scrub.

Who doesn't love how their face feels after using a safe-for-skin facial scrub.  Ridding your face of dead skin using a scrub that includes a moisturizing agent in the ingredients will leave your face feeling soft with a healthy glow.  An accumulation of dead skin cells can really cause our skin to look dull and aged.

A healthy facial regimen that includes exfoliating once a week  will not only keep your skin looking healthy, it will help your makeup go on easier, look better, and stay on longer.

It is important to use caution when using any kind of homemade exfoliant on your face.   You need to make sure that you use ingredients that you have not had a reaction to in the past. Now days, many people prefer to make their own spa products using all natural ingredients, and avoiding those "can't even pronounce" ingredients in commercial products.

It is also important that the exfoliating  ingredient that you use in the scrub is not too abrasive.  The skin we want to remove is dead so it doesn't take that much effort to remove it safely.  Sugar is a safe and gentle exfoliant ingredient that dissolves dead skin cells without irritation.

According to Allure Magazine,  we should alternate using scrubs as an exfoliator, with a cleanser or product that contains salicylic acid. Mario Badescu Acne Facial Cleanser is a popular favorite, and is on several top ten exfoliator lists from popular beauty magazines.
