Clean your Lips
The first process of exfoliating your lips is to ensure that they are clean. Use warm water and some mild soap to cleanse your skin. Preferably, dip a clean piece of cloth in warm water lathered with the mild soap, then gently clean your lips. Afterward, rinse off the soapy water with clean warm water until there is no soapiness left then dry your lips with a clean piece of cloth.
After your lips are clean, apply the lips scrub of choice and rub in gentle circular motions. Furthermore, you should choose a hydrating lip scrub that removes dead skin cells and hydrates the lips.
Moreover, if you are the kind of person who opts for a DIY lip scrub, then, coffee, sugar or yogurt can exfoliate your lips too. Indeed, coffee has caffeine that lifts off the dead skin cells and leaves the lips energized. For sugar, mix a quarter teaspoon of sugar in a teaspoon of yogurt, then gently apply in circular motions. Let it settle for approximately seven minutes before wiping it off. Yogurt is a good skin hydrant and exfoliant
Hydrate Your Lips
Once you have sloughed off the dead skin cell from the lips, you have to hydrate them. Particularly, you can use a hydrating lip balm, lip conditioner or shea butter. Your lips will definitely feel natural and smooth.
After scrubbing your lips, you can add some color to them. You will notice after scrubbing that your lipstick applies smoothly.
Perfect your Pout
If you have colored outside the line, you do not have to start over again. Just use a creamy concealer to hide any mistakes.
