Lip exfoliation is just as essential for our lips as it is for our skin. Lips have a thinner layer of skin than the rest of our body so they tend to lose moisture quite easily. Although applying rich, moisturising balms can help hydrate them, it is important to remove dead skin cells to improve the texture and appearance of your lips in order to ensure a perfect lipstick application and the perfect pout for that matter.
Lip scrubs usually come in sweet, candy-like flavours and they give lips a gentle exfoliation while at the same hydrate them, leaving them feeling soft, smooth and supple! There are so many options to choose from in the market so in today’s post we will tell you our three favourites or if you are a DIY kinda person follow our suggested recipe and we promise you won’t regret it!
A sugar-based exfoliator that gently buffs away dry and flaky skin while at the same time soothes and softens lips. Hydration returns immediately and when you remove it you have a nice feeling on your lips.
Yet another sugar based lip scrub, only this time it is a self-vanishing one that simple does its job in one simple sweeping movement and needs no rinsing. The texture gently exfoliates and transforms into a balm as it melts on lips.
And for all you rose lovers, Baume de Rose Le Gommage Levres is a rose-infused scrub that will leave dry and chapped lips smooth and perfectly rehydrated. It is enriched with delicate sugar crystals that remove dry skin and leave lips permanently soft.
Another alternative is to make your own lip scrub and trust me, it’s pretty easy. All you need is three ingredients which you probably have at home; Coconut Oil, Honey and Sugar.
All you have to do is mix 1 tablespoon of Coconut Oil with 1 tablespoon of Honey together until they combine, then add 2 tablespoons of Sugar, 1 teaspoon of luke warm water and mix it all up. And there you have it, your own natural lip scrub to use and have kissable lips. Tip: you can store your homemade lip scrub in contact lense cases and even give some to your friends.
Till next week…
