Taking time to exfoliate just once or twice a week can up your skincare routine to the next level! Even though we are always hustling to get to the next thing on our schedule, adding something as simple as exfoliating into your life can leave you feeling amazingly refreshed and rejuvenated. Exfoliation is a key part of your skin care routine as it can help remove dry skin, unclog pores, and increase circulation—all leading to help with anti-aging, and acne prevention. Adding this simple step into your quick beauty routine can help bring out even more of your natural, inner beauty.
One place people most often forget to exfoliate is their lips! Even though we exfoliate our faces it’s extremely common to forget our lips. Benefits of your Chica Beauty lip exfoliation include: removing dry skin, keeping lips moist, soft & smooth, and helping your lipstick stay on for longer & look smoother!
If you’re already exfoliating you lips—gold star to you Chica! If not, it’s time to start! Try out this super simple sugar scrub that will leave your lips super soft!
Try this scrub to help refresh and rejuvenate your lips!
- 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar (feel free to use a more coarse sugar for a deeper scrub)
- 1 Squirt of Honey
- 1 Drop of Vanilla
- Mix all ingredients together thoroughly. The combination should be malleable but not runny.
- Transfer the scrub into an airtight container (i.e. mason jar).
- Apply to lips and lightly scrub with fingertips to exfoliate.
- Let the scrub sit for a few moments before washing off with warm water.
- Hydrate your lips with your favorite chapstick or moisturizer.
Be careful not to over exfoliate—incorporate this scrub or other means of exfoliation into your routine once per week at most! Your skin is very sensitive and you don’t want to irritate it. Once a week is just enough to keep you looking smooth and silky without drying out or tiring your lips.
Put on your favorite chapstick or moisturizer after you exfoliate for hydration! This extra step will help make applying lipstick so much easier.
