How To Exfoliate Lips

Your face is not the only part that needs a good scrub every once in a while.  You need to exfoliate your lips too to keep them, soft, young, and scrumptious. Here is a simple step by step guide on how to exfoliate lips without you needing to run off to the store and spend extra money (although they usually don't cost all that much)  on a lip exfoliating product.

How To Exfoliate LipsTHE SWEET WAY

What You Need:

  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar

What To Do:

Simply mix the two ingredients in a tiny bowl.  Then, you can use a washcloth, or even just your middle and index fingers, to put some on your lips.  Spread it all over.  Then you want to gently massage (NOTE: GENTLY- you want to exfoliate, not chap) for about a minute or two in a circular motion.  Rinse off with warm water (no need for the cold this time ladies) then finish off by applying your favorite lip balm. *Another sweet way to exfoliate is to use honey instead of olive oil.  Application is pretty much the same except that you want to let your mixture sit for about 5-10 minutes after you have massaged it in.  So it is kinda like a exfoliating/moisturizing lip mask of sorts.  Then rinse off with warm water and still follow up with lip balm.

How to exfoliate lipsJUST JELLY

What You Need:

  • Petroleum Jelly
  • An old tooth brush- you want one that is pretty worn out but still has relatively straight bristles, SOFT, but straight.
 

What To Do:

Without putting anything on your lips, but it is best to start with a clean pair, of course, take that old toothbrush of yours and give your lips a good old rub.  Again, circular motions and not too rough.  Your lips are a far cry softer and more delicate than your teeth.  Do so for about 5 minutes. When done, Follow up with petroleum jelly.  This is perfect to hydrate your lips.  Just like lip balm, leave it on. You want your lips to really soak up the good stuff.  There is absolutely no need to rinse.
