You know what will ruin your bold lipstick look before you even open up the tube? Chapped lips. We know how hard it is to maintain a smooth and supple pout in the midst of Winter (two words: polar vortex). But the secret is in the scrub. Adding an exfoliating step to your lip routine can make sure your lip color goes on seamlessly without sinking into the cracks. These sugary scrubs are made for your mouth, and some are even edible. The cure to dry, peeling lips is just ahead . . .
Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry
Bite Beauty Whipped Cherry Lip Scrub  ($18) is 100 percent natural with the added antiaging benefits of resveratrol. The miniature scrubbers in this scrub are made of rice bran, which won't be too harsh on your lips.
The exfoliating granules in the Bliss Fabulips Sugar Lip Scrub  ($18) are a mix of sugar, almond, and walnut shell. And the addition of olive oil and shea butter make it a moisturizing treatment, too.
