Dry, flaky and chapped lips are common in winters. While frequent application of lip balm is recommended for the same, how about sprucing up the routine a bit and trying a homemade DIY lip scrub which is made from natural ingredients. The scrub not only helps remove dead cells but also nourishes the lips.
Dermatologist Dr Geetika Mittal Gupta recently shared this easy DIY scrub.
