How to Use a Lip Scrub: A Complete Guide to Soft, Smooth Lips

Ever wondered how to get rid of those dry, cracked and flaky lips? Or perhaps you’ve heard about lip scrub but have no clue how to use it? In this guide, we’ll share with you the tips on lip scrubbing, making it easy to understand and follow. Using lip scrub is like giving your lips a spa day – it exfoliates, rejuvenates, and leaves them looking fabulous. Let’s dive into the world of lip care with our step-by-step guide!

Benefits of using a lip scrub

Enhances Lip Health

Using a lip scrub isn’t just about removing dead skin, it’s about letting your lips breathe. By scrubbing, you exfoliate away the old dead skin, allowing new, healthy skin to take its place. It’s like saying goodbye to the old, tired skin and welcoming a fresher, more vibrant you!

Achieves Smooth Lips Without Overdoing It

The key to a perfect pout is in the gentle touch. Using a lip scrub correctly can help achieve velvety lips without going overboard. Instead of harshly peeling or biting your lips, a natural sugar scrub offers a gentle exfoliation, leaving your lips soft and smooth.

Preps Lips for Lip Balm and Lipstick Application

Think of lip scrub as the canvas primer before you paint. It prepares your lips, making them the perfect base for lip balm or lipstick. Once you’ve scrubbed away the rough patches, your lip products glide on effortlessly, giving you that flawless finish you crave.

Can I Scrub My Lips Every Day?

NO! Did you know that our lips are the thinnest parts of our skin. They need time to recover. Scrubbing your lips every day can thin your lips and impede the natural healing process. After a gentle scrub, the dead skins are removed so next thing to do is to give your lips a breather, let them rejuvenate. Once a week is the sweet spot for that perfect pout.

The Best Time to Use Lip Scrub?

There is no fixed time of the day when you can use a lip scrub. We recommend using a lip scrub at night because that will give your lips a good clean up, and after that, you can apply lip balm or lip mask for lips to be extra moisturised overnight and ready for the next day. However, if you would like to do a quick, gentle scrub in the morning, that is completely fine too!

Best Practices for a Lip Care Routine

A comprehensive lip care routine involves daily lip balm application and occasional use of a lip mask, especially before bedtime. If your lips are chapped, a weekly lip scrub followed by a moisturizing lip balm or lip mask is the golden rule.

Common Mistakes to Avoid!

Scrubbing Your Lips Every Day

Think of your lips as delicate flowers, they need care, not constant pruning. Give them the space to breathe and heal. Scrubbing your lips every day can make them even thinner and prevent them from healing properly.

Scrubbing Rough

Treat your lips like silk, not sandpaper. Harsh scrubbing can damage the delicate skin, leading to more harm than good.

Scrubbing on Bleeding Lips

If your lips are already bleeding, it’s time to focus on healing, not scrubbing. It is the same as you won’t want to keep rubbing a bleeding wound on your knee while it is trying to heal. Focus on using a soothing lip balm or lip mask to help with the recovery first.

Applying a lip scrub weekly is a fantastic way to give your lips the love and care they deserve. By following these simple steps above and avoiding common mistakes, you’ll be on your way to having the softest, healthiest lips ever. So, say goodbye to dryness and hello to a perfect pout – your lips will thank you!
