Our lips go through a lot of damage. During the summer season, UV rays can dry them out and hinder collagen production. Likewise, constantly using matte lipsticks can also suck the moisture out of your lips. So it’s always best to have a lip scrub handy to keep your puckers supple.
The fun thing about lip scrubs is that they also come in various flavors. It’s like giving yourself a sweet treat while removing the dead skin on your lips. So before going back to work on Monday, go grab these scrubs we listed and start using them religiously.
A combination of peppermint and sugar, Lush Mint Julips will leave your lips feeling soft. This has organic jojoba oil to keep your lips protected all day. It will also leave a tingly and refreshing feel. Available at Bonifacio High Street.
If you’re a fan of applying shea butter on your skin, then you’ll love the effect of Mary Kay’s lip scrub. The shea butter will help your lips retain its moisture. It’s also formulated with white tea and citrus to give it a refreshing scent. Available online.
