Thin lines and flakes can make your lips look older and thinner than they really are, especially when the temperature is extreme or you're not drinking enough water. Using a lip scrub can rub away flakes and parched cells, revealing healthier, hydrated skin below. While you can purchase lip-exfoliating scrubs at drugstores and department stores, it's easy to whip up your own lip scrub with ingredients from your kitchen.
