I don’t claim to be a beauty blogger, but I just had to share these simple tips to gently exfoliate your lips. I have had the worst dry lips these last week! I have no idea what brought it on. It’s been at like 100% humidity here for days, and I have literally changed nothing in my beauty routine. When I first noticed it I tried a special lib scrub made from sugar that I keep in my shower. It has always done the trick before, but this time my dry lips were not going away that easy. After a few more days I absolutely couldn’t stand it any longer, so I started thinking about how I handle dry skin on the rest of my face. I normally use a gentle scrub or an electric face brush. This made me think to try this super simple beauty trick that led to amazingly soft lips!
Easy Steps for the Smoothest Lips Ever
- Wash your face with a gentle cleanser and remove any make up paying special attention to the lip area
- Put a small amount of toothpaste (because soap tastes yucky or just use water) on an ultra soft baby tooth brush.
- Gently scrub your lips in a circular motion
- Rinse and Pat Dry
- Apply 100% lanolin to your lips- I like Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm for Lips
As a mom, I already had everything at my house to try this and I bet you do too! I had a drawer full of unopened toothbrushes, because… #momlife. I happened to have this amazing lip balm, but I also have a couple of tubes of lanolin nipple cream that would have done the trick too. My lips feel absolutely amazing, and all the dry skin is completely gone!
While I don’t often talk about beauty stuff on the blog, I absolutely love watching beauty videos and reading tutorials. I have a massive stash of beauty products that would make any beauty blogger smile. I’d love to hear some of your favorite beauty tips or drop the name of your favorite beauty blogger so I can check her out!
