If you have dry chapped lips, adding in one simple step might be all you need to get them in line. Exfoliating is an easy step that takes only a minute to do, a few times a week. Here's how.

Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: 2 minutes

Here's How:

  1. Apply a thick layer of Vaseline to your lips.
  2. Using super soft toothbrush (kid's toothbrushes work great), simply rub your lips gently in circular motions. The toothbrush will exfoliate and the Vaseline will heal and hydrate.
  3. If you have extra Vaseline on your lips, you can tissue it off. Make sure you leave some one for added protection and shine.


  1. Don't have a toothbrush on hand? Mix some sugar or coffee grounds into your Vaseline and gently use your finger to rub in circular motions.
  2. For extra hydration, apply Vaseline to your lips before bed. Lips can get painfully dehydrated while you're sleeping, taking this step each night will greatly help.
  3. Grab a bit of your blush and mix it with your Vaseline for a quick lip tint.
