Baby soft lips/exfoliating

(1/1)

dlee:
Like many other girls sometimes my lips get a build up of dry skin on them from time to time and when that happens its time to EXFOLIATE!!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to be showing you gals my method of how I get rid of all the dead skin, lets start.

 
Your going to need a toothbrush, toothpaste, sugar, lip moisturizer and your finger ;).

Step one:
With toothpaste on your toothbrush your going to scrub your lips for about a minute or so dont scrub too hard or too long, your lips will turn raw, past expirence  :P. When your finished scrubbing wash off toothpaste and dry your lips.
*note using the toothpaste will eventually lighten the tone of your lips if there dark or pigmented.

Step two: Your going to need sugar in a little bowl it can be either white or brown sugar, add a little water to your sugar then take the sugary water and scrub off the rest of the dead skin left on with your finger, pretty yummy if I must say ;). When done wash the sugar off
Step 3:
Add your moisturizer then your done! I also make my own homemade lip balm if you would like me to make a tutorial inbox me or leave a comment below!
Before:   After: your lips.
If you have any comments or would like me to make a certain tutorial dont be afraid to ask! :)

Joanna Dark:
I am generally pretty good with skin care and make up and stuff but this is really good tip. Never thought of it. Thanks! I'll try it.

dlee:
Thank you, feel free to let me know how it works out for you!

Personally, I just lightly rub my exfoliating glove on and inside my lips until most of the peeling skin is out. Then, after shower, I finish up by biting my lips on a relatively rough fabric, such as a sweatshirt's elastic, and rubbing a little from left to right. Then my lips are all nice and soft. Honestly I think it works fine, and it sounds like it's less of a pain than your method. o:

I just wish my lips didn't renew their skin like that every week. It's annoying to have "textured" lips half of the time.

Adam (birkin):
I have the same problem a lot, this looks like it works really well...something else that has worked really well for me is mixing just sugar and honey, then rubbing it on.
