That feeling of dry and flaky skin on your puckers can really be annoying and uncomfortable. Of course, what we want is a pair of soft kissable lips. The good news is there are a number of ways to address this problem and prevent chapped lips in the future. Here is one secret that can help keep your puckers plump and soft.
One Secret to Soft and Kissable Lips
Yes, a pair of soft, plump, and kissable lips can be achieved in one easy step. What’s the secret? Simple. Exfoliate your lips.
Exfoliate your lips. Yes, your lips need exfoliating too. Use a gentle scrub to exfoliate your lips. You can easily buy a lip scrub from beauty stores. Choose a gentle one as some can be too harsh that they irritate the lips and leave them cracked. There are even some that can cause a burning sensation. So be very careful when picking which lip scrub to use.
You may want to do a patch test first. Apply a tiny amount of the scrub on your lips and wait for a day to see if you develop any reaction. If you are on a tight budget or you prefer to go with natural remedies, brown sugar will do. Use a new toothbrush with soft bristles when applying the lip scrub. Toothbrushes made for babies seem to be the most ideal choice. Refrain from using an adult toothbrush as it comes with hard bristles which can actually make your lips even rougher than before. Certainly, you would not want that to happen.
DIY Lip Scrub
