Addicted to Lip balm? Do you find yourself reapplying lip balm and chapstick all the time? It’s because your lips aren’t really being hydrated! Most balms are made with dangerous chemicals and petroleum jelly so using them more than once a week is extremely damaging. What you really need are all natural lip butters made with moisturizing oils and butters.
Why use a lip scrub?
If dead skin cells are not removed before application of any lip product, you’re not really doing anything to solve the issue of chapped and cracked lips. Although applying rich, moisturising balms can help to rejuvenate and hydrate your lips, it is important to remove and buff away dead skin cells to improve the texture and appearance of your lips.
A smooth, hydrated base is essential to perfect lipstick application. As many of us love to use long-lasting matte and liquid lipstick formulations, our lips are in need of a little more care with some gentle exfoliation from lip scrubs
What is a lip scrub?
Lip scrubs generally contain two components: an emollient and an exfoliant. The emollient provides a hydrating base for the exfoliant, making the product easier to apply to the lips. Emollients in lip scrubs are typically light plant seed butters or oils, such as jojoba oil or shea butter. The exfoliant in most lip scrubs is sugar. Sugar is gentle on delicate lip skin but still effective to remove flaky skin. The emollient and exfoliant work together to moisturize and smoothen your lips.
What’s the best way to apply it?
Apply the scrub all over wet lips and gently rub in a circular motion before rinsing or wiping with a wet washcloth.
