Fresh Sugar Lip Polish
The skin of your lips is exactly that — skin. Like that of the rest of your body, they need to be exfoliated and cared for. Lip scrubs are the perfect way to give them some R and R.
"A lip scrub not only removes dead skin cells and helps exfoliate but it also allows for better penetration of hydrating products," said dermatologist Kavita Mariwalla, M.D. (the equivalent of a consultant dermatologist in the UK). "By removing the outer layer of dead cells, emollients can penetrate better and work more effectively." Mariwalla suggests using a lip scrub at least once a week.
These exfoliators not only introduce hydrating ingredients your lips, they help prime the area for makeup application by creating a smooth canvas for lipstick. Check out some of our favourite scrubs, ahead.
