Exfoliate Those Smackers

Exfoliating your lips is a must for some people like me! It's just as important as any other skin, but for some reason, we rarely think about it. Adding this step into your nightly routine is super simple, and will make your lips look and feel pillowy soft.

Exfoliating your lips not only removes the dead, chapped skin on the surface, but it stimulates blood circulation and new cell growth. It smooths and softens the lips surface, and when followed by an amazing moisturizer, they become more kissable, and product is easier to apply. What's not to love?

There are several great lip scrubs available. SUGAR makes a delicious scrub($22). Mary Kay Satin Lip Set ($18) is also a nice option. This set comes with both an exfoliator and a moisturizer. Both are critical steps in lip care.

I've created my own lip scrub by combining a old standby, Chapstick, with a kitchen staple; sugar. The resulting scrub is not only moisturizing and effective, but it's also utterly delectable.!

Mix equal parts until thoroughly combined and place in a small jar for regular use. Ta-da! Your very own lip scrub! Don't forget to add a cute label.

Take a small amount and rub it all over your lips. If your lips are extra chapped, use your toothbrush and lightly scrub in small circular motions. When you are finished, wipe those lippies clean of any remaining sugar particles and use your lip balm to seal in the moisture.
Your lips are now as soft as the day you were born. Keep this up a few tines a week, and they'll be sure to stay that way.

Love always,
