Why I Brush My Lips… & You Should Too.

There is literally nothing worse than dry lips.

Like. Yuck yuck yuck. Not cute.

There is also really no excuse for it IMHO. Yes, the weather gets cold, our skin gets dry, our lips get chapped… BUT you do not need to be a victim.

So, what’s a girl to do? Brush your lips. Duh!

Here’s why… Brushing your lips is the best way to exfoliate them and get rid of that dry, chapped skin. Furthermore… brushing your lips totally plumps your pout by increasing circulation and bringing more blood to the surface of the skin.

Softer, fuller lips…? Sign me up.

So, after you brush your teeth… brush your lips. Using a wet toothbrush gently brush your lips. Don’t get carried away, your goal is exfoliation… let’s not get crazy. If you want to add a little extra umph use brown sugar for extra exfoliation. When you are done brushing lock in that moisture with a rich lip balm. I swear by Smith’s Rosebud Salve. I’ve talked about it before because it is seriously the best. Another great option ( and something that belongs in everyone’s medicine cabinet ) is Alba’s Un-Petroleum Jelly. Just steer clear of regular old Vaseline or anything containing ‘Petroleum’. Sorry, but petroleum belongs in your car… not on your face. EW. You’re skin is your largest organ. Be good to it!

So spill… what are your weirdest beauty tricks?
