So as many of you know, I suffer from dry lips just like the rest of the world but it really gets to me. Purely because I've been swooped into this whole matte, liquid lipstick craze and matte lips just don't agree with dry lips, its a complete no no. Even with regular non matte lipstick, dry patches appear on my lips throughout the day, it really annoys me!! But fear no more, I have found a solution, three solutions to be precise. I can now say, by doing at least one of the techniques twice a week, I no longer suffer with dry lips. Don't get me wrong, my lips still get dry ... just occasionally rather than everyday, I think we can blame the weather for that!
The First Technique: Sugar (Preferably Brown) & Honey Lip Scrub.
This is the messiest out of the three, so be sure to do this one over the bathroom sink, if you if it a go. However, it is so simple, all you do is mix 1 Tablespoon of Brown Sugar with 1 Teaspoon of Honey, and mix until you form a gritty hard paste, add more honey if you wish! Then take a little pinch and scrub your lips with it, start from one end and work yourself to the other, whilst taking more of the scrub. Once you've gently scrubbed your lips, take a damp cloth and wipe it all away. Follow up with lip balm, and that's pretty much it!
The Second Technique: Damp Cloth.
I love this one, its my personal fave. Since most of the world now complete their cleansing routines with a balm cleanser and some sort of cloth, this is perfect for everyday, well its what I do anyway. All you have to do, is wet a washcloth, ring it out and gently scrub your lips with it. That's all, they may go a little red, mine do but I guess that means its worked. And then of course, follow with lip balm. If you do this in the evening, the results will show the next morning, my lips are always plumper and ever so slightly bigger, and of course so much more softer!
The Third Technique: The Toothbrush.
This couldn't get any easier, you simply take a spare toothbrush and scrub your lips using small circular motions, and as always, follow up with lip balm. How simple!
Those three exfoliating techniques are sure to help heal your dry lips and get rid of dead skin cells, let me know if you give them a go!
See ya on Thursday ☺
