About now, you’re seeing positive changes in your skin and leaps forward in caring for it. The best way to set off your new glowing skin is to take care of the smaller details as well. One of the smaller details that happens to complement healthy skin are lips.
Day 11 : January 11
Scrub, soften and protect your lips.
Soft kissable lips and smooth clear skin pack a one-two punch in the healthy department.
Start by exfoliating the lips with a gentle lip scrub or soft toothbrush. If you don’t have a lip scrub, you can mix together some coconut oil with brown sugar. Using a gentle circular motion across the lips removes dry skin and flakes revealing smoother skin instantly. Be sure to exfoliate over the lip line as well.
Once your lips are freshly scrubbed, smooth and replenish the area with your favourite natural lip balm. Be liberal with it … and be frequent. And same thing : don’t just apply to the lip area, go over the lip line a bit to nourish and hydrate any finer lines around the mouth.
If you own a lip cream, you can apply this as well for a very intensive lip treatment.
No, kiss away …
TIP : Scrubbing your lips is way different than scrubbing your skin, face, or feet. A gentle touch is all you need. Scrub too hard and your lips may get chapped all over again.
HOMEWORK : Make a habit of having a natural lip balm nearby or in your pocket at all times. Especially in the winter months!
