11 Expert-Recommended Scrubs for Soft, Flake-free Lips
On my admittedly long list of beauty woes, there’s little that frustrates me more than chapped lips. I’ve tried it all: cult-favorite balms, reparative creams, ultra-hydrating masks — but time and time again (and especially after being cooped up in an air-conditioned office all week), my lips return to their dry, angry state. So, when I started to see a handful of lip scrubs pop up on the market — all claiming to destroy chapped skin on cue — I practically flung myself at the opportunity to maybe, finally rid my lips of dry skin, once and for all.
But, like any good skeptic, I first went to an expert to find out how effective lip scrubs are. “Lip scrubs are physical exfoliants that remove the surface layer of your skin,” says Dr. Rachel Nazarian, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. Used weekly — and, the key, gently — Dr. Nazarian says these powerful little scrubs will slough away the dry, dead skin that sits on your lips.
