Lip scrubs exfoliate the delicate skin on your lips, revealing fresh skin underneath. They’re specifically formulated to avoid the harsh exfoliation you might need for other parts of your body, removing just the right amount of skin. Here are a few things you should know about lip scrubs:
Some of them double as lip-balms. You generally want to use these types sparingly, as you might end up removing more skin than you bargained for over time. Stick with a regular lip balm for daily use.
Use it less than twice a week. Lip scrubs can be addicting, but using them more often than you should is quite risky. Use them twice a week, tops.
Try a toothbrush. You can apply the lip scrub on a toothbrush and use that to make scrubbing your lips just a bit easier. Any cheap toothbrush with soft bristles will do. You definitely don’t want to use the same one you use for your teeth.
