Lip scrubs help keep your lips healthy and smooth by gently removing unnecessary dead skin that hides your lips’ true beauty. It helps reveal new layers making way for smooth, soft and plump lips.
A lip scrub is made up of two components, an emollient or moisturiser and an exfoliant.
The emollient component is typically plant-based oils and butters such as Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil etc.
The exfoliant component is typically sugar. Since sugar is a humectant, a substance that preserves moisture, it can be a great exfoliant in order to exfoliate dead, flaky skin to reveal smooth, soft and healthy lips.
Lip scrubs are just as important as your lip balm. The lipid layer of our lips is prone to dryness which becomes flaky and chapped. With a good lip scrub, once the chapped skin is removed, your lip balm can easily penetrate and moisturise the lipid layer.
We shouldn’t underestimate flaky and dead skin, just like your body skin. Dryness causes premature ageing, the exfoliating and hydrating effect you get after a good scrub keeps your lips looking younger.
Ever wonder why your lipstick doesn’t last long, well, maybe you simply need to get the flaky skin out of the way first as keeping your lips healthy by using a scrub helps to keep your favourite lipstick and lip liner stay on longer.
A scrub with only natural or organic ingredients should be at the top of your list. Not only will your lips benefit from the natural goodness of plant-based ingredients, you’ll never have to worry about synthetic ingredients and other chemicals that are typically used in conventional lip scrubs.
