5 Lip Scrubs Your Lips Need This Winter
Yes, they need moisture this season, extra moisture! Because unlike your skin, lips have no pores. But, like your skin, they also need a little exfoliation to shed that dead and dry skin. In fact, lip exfoliators are often double duty products, that help scrub and moisturise your lips, simultaneously. Plus, they’re the best way to prime your pout for the perfect lip look. So, here are 5 lip exfoliators we’re crushing this winter.
#HauteHack: Try applying dollops of ghee, coconut oil, Vaseline, or lip balm about 10 to 15 minutes before you exfoliate. Watch the magic as your lips get smooth and sexy. Once you’re done scrubbing, apply a very light layer of lip balm, and then proceed with your lipstick, any lip look, or leave as is.
1. The Forest Essentials
Made of cane sugar, this one is an all-natural treatment for your lips. This Christmas treat is made of beeswax, sugar crystals, and sugar cane juice, among other pure ingredients that work to gently exfoliate your lips.
This Hollywood favourite is finally available in India and we can’t get enough. A rather intense exfoliating treatment that fizzes, this product will leave you with an ultra smooth and perfect pout. It’s made of cane sugar, hibiscus flower powder, and sea salt, among other fruity goodness. Start by using it dry, then add a little water to activate the fizz.
This handy lip scrub is gentle, easy to use, and mess-free. It comes as a lipstick, so make sure you wipe it clean after each use. The scrub is enriched with vitamin E to moisturise, and it gives you a luscious lip look.
Khadi is famous for the use of local, natural ingredients. If you’re looking for a creamy formula, then you’ve found your match! This raw scrub is made of apricot, walnut, and rose to purify and cleanse your lips of dead skin.
5. e.l.f. Cosmetics
Looking for budget-friendly makeup that works wonders, e.l.f. is sure to become your favourite! Their scrub also comes in a lipstick tube, super handy, something I came across years ago and still love. While they have these available in various flavours, like mint and rose, the clear one is simple and does the job.
