Ever find your self constantly reapplying chapstick or lip gloss throughout the day? It doesn't seem to matter how many times you repeat the process you still have that dry, cracked feeling. Well, let me let you in on a little secret. The problem is that each time you apply gloss to this area you're covering dead skin. Different factors like harmful chemicals in the glosses and chapsticks you use, changing weather and dehydration kills cells in the skin on the surface. Thus, giving you the dry and cracked sensation that you deal with constantly. But, don't fret my lady! There is always a remedy to tragedies in the beauty world.
Our lip area is extremely sensitive so you have to be careful what type of products you use when caring for them. Lip scrubs are our answer to this one. They are made to diminish the dead skin cells in a natural way. The exfoliants it contains leave a new smooth layer of skin once application is complete. After scrubbing, you've opened your pores enough to receive the moisture your balms and glosses offer. Scrubs with ingredients like avocado oil, shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter and Vitamin E oil are most effective because they all have properties that heal, protect, and help retain moisture.
To properly use lip scrubs, promptly wet your lips and gently massage the scrub into your skin with a finger, sponge or brush. Repeat as needed to ensure all dry skin and flakes are removed before applying your lip cosmetics for the day. Avoid irritating the skin with over use.
Finish off your scrub process with a lip oil that will help continue to treat the skin while wearing your lipstick or gloss of choice.
