Your Lips Need Love Too!

It's that time of year ladies, the air gets crisper and your skin gets dryer. Dry and crackled is never a good look, especially on your lips. You want your lips to look soft and plump, but attaining this isn't easy. It takes some work to get those luscious lips you dream of! Angelina didn't wake up with those lips...or maybe she did because she's Angelina Jolie? Never mind, bad example. The point is your lips need love too! By adding just a few extra steps to your beauty routine you'll be on your way to sexy lips!

Show Your Lips Some Love

The very first step you need to add to your routine is...


Yes, you need to exfoliate your lips! The dry and flaky layer on your lips needs to be buffed away or else that outer layer is just going to stay there (ew!). By removing the dead surface of your lips it reveals a fresh new layer. It also makes your lips super soft, smooth and allows your lips to retain it's moisture longer. This won't have to worry about chapped lips for a while, IF you exfoliate regularly (1x a week and 2x week in the colder months).

Now I know what you're thinking, "where am I suppose to find a lip scrub?" What kind of friend would I be if I didn't give you guys the hookup ;)

Here is is...

Recipe For Lip Scrub

I prefer to make my own lip scrub, mostly because it's easier and I can pronounce everything I'm putting in it.

After you've given your lips a good scrub remove any excess sugar or dead skin (ew!) with a towel and IMMEDIATELY moisturize. A good Chapstick or lip balm will do.

QUICK TIP: Exfoliate with a toothbrush, preferably the soft kind and separate from the one you use to brush your teeth. This little tip is great when your traveling and you've forgotten your lip scrub! It has the same effect as a scrub.

Ladies you are just a scrub and swipe of lip balm away from those Angelina lips!
