The cold weather and central heating certainly plays havoc with our skin and in particular our lips. Not only can dry cracked lips look unsightly with or without lipstick, they can also be quite painful. That is why at this time of year I always go back to one particular product. Lush Lip Scrubs. I have tried using a toothbrush to gently exfoliate my lips but nothing really compares to these scrubs. Available in flavours that are every bit as yummy as they sound, my particular favourite is Mint Julips which is a lovely mint chocolate flavour very reminiscent of an after dinner mint!
I like to apply the lip scrub once or twice a week as part of my evening cleansing routine. I dip my finger into the scrub and gently massage it over my lips. This action gently buffs away any dry skin and once rinsed off leaves lips beautifully soft. I like to take full advantage of my newly smooth lips and massage in a lip balm to ensure any moisture is put back into them. I find this helps to prevent any further cracking.
The lip scrub lasts for ages, so whilst £5.50 may be a little pricey for what is essentially sugar and essential oils, it does last for ages so is totally worth the price.
If you are currently having problems with dry chapped lips (lets face it, who isn’t at this time of year?!) then let this product be the next item on your ‘To Buy’ list. It leaves lips lovely and pink and provides the perfect base for applying lipstick.
