How to Exfoliate Your Lips ?

In my last post I talked about how to clean your lips? But cleansing is incomplete without exfoliation. Exfoliation is important for all your body whether its face, hands, legs or lips.

Exfoliation helps in removing your dead or dry skin .Now you must be thinking to get rid of dry skin we should apply some lip guard/balm /cream /moisturizer, but let me tell you this won't work best unless we remove dead/dry skin, coz dry skin means you have dry skin cell build up, and the more we layer heavier creams, the more we are trying to re hydrate dry/dead skin, which makes no sense 
Instead increase your exfoliation to remove your dry skin cells, and then moisturize the new skin cells.

Here I am sharing with you some easy peasy home remedies for exfoliating your lips.
This one most commonly used but I never tried this.
Take a soft bristle tooth brush & rub it gently in circular motions on your lips to remove dead skin. You can apply vaseline or lip balm before & after doing this.
What I do to exfoliate my lips is I mix a little sugar with honey & scrub this mixture on my lips this works wonder for my lips. As you know honey is my favorite ingredient.You can substitute honey with olive oil.
At times I also use grated beet root to scrub my lips, beet root also helps in making lips pink.

How to Clean Your Lips ?

Lips have more delicate skin than our face; it requires special care .I never let my face wash to reach my lips.As I want to keep my lips away from such chemicals that dry my lips. But our lips also requires the same care as our face & body.

So, how to clean lips ?

Ok we do have many makeup removers to remove lipsticks & all, but I don’t prefer to use them daily , as i dont apply lipsticks daily. Here are some homemade remedies I do to clean my lips:-

·         Apply raw milk & scrub my lips when it dries, this not only work as cleanser but also helps in exfoliating my lips.
·         Clean lips with any oil like baby oil or almond oil or olive oil, even peppermint oil is very good for lips.
·         I wipe my lips with cotton ball dipped in rose water to clean them.
