DIY Lip Scrubs for Lip Blush Pre-Care

What are lip scrubs?

Lip scrubs are a method of physical exfoliation for your lips, an area easily affected by harsh environments. Lip scrubs are different from lip balms because they remove the layers of flaky, dead skin that cause lips to look and feel chapped.

Why use them?

There are several reasons to consider using lip scrubs, whether it be environment, weather, age, or something else. As we age, lips become thinner due to the loss of collagen over time. Lip scrubs can smooth lip lines and stimulate blood flow, which is essential in fighting signs of aging. Lip scrub benefits include removing dead skin that builds up around the lip which can lead to dull, dry lips.

To sum up the benefits: With the right ingredients, a lip scrub can offer exfoliation, hydration, moisture, nourishment, and antiseptic benefits all at the same time.

For the lip blush procedure, it's extremely important to make sure our lips are in the best condition possible.
