Ok, lame excuse. But I couldn't think of any other reasons why I haven't been drinking more water ;p
So back to the flaky lips...
I've tried The Body Shop Lip Scuff years ago, but I found the granules a bit too gentle for my overly chapped lips (plus I don't like the minty smell) so I didn't bother to use it again. I also tried exfoliating my lips with wet towel and applying Pure Shea Butter hoping that it'll moisturize my dry lips but nope, my lips are still flaky and fugly. It looks even fuglier when I apply lipstick on. Brushing my lips with a toothbrush doesn't seem like a pleasing idea so I passed that up.
Then I decided to make my own lip scrub - using only Vaseline and raw sugar. After about 3 times of good scrubbin' my lips are almost flake-less! But you have to make it a habit to do it every 2-3 times a week to see the result.
Here's how to make your own lip scrub:
and mix 'em together with your finger until it forms a paste.
Finally, apply lip balm.
Now I have to warn you that it can get a little messy... but it's worth a try!
