Weekly lip exfoliating: Tip of the Day 10-12-22
Cooler weather can pave the way for chapped lips! Even if it's not cold outside, lips are often prone to drying factors. Enzymes from saliva, acids from food, talking, and chewing can all dry out lips. Experts say the key to keeping lips hydrated is proper exfoliation.
Lip scrubs specifically made for cosmetic use on the lips are formulated with the right ratios of exfoliating particles, oils, and waxes to achieve gentle exfoliation.
Experts recommend gently rubbing lip scrub on clean, damp lips for 10 to 15 seconds, then leave the mixture on for at most 30 seconds. After 30 seconds, rinse your lips with warm water and pat dry. Finish by applying a lip balm to protect and lock in moisture. Apply lip balm as needed throughout the day to keep lips moisturized.
If going out in the sun, using a lip balm with 30 SPF will help protect against UV rays.
Bonus tip: You can make your own lip scrub by mixing one teaspoon of brown or white sugar with one teaspoon of a nourishing ingredient like honey, Shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, or avocado oil.
