You likely have a skin care routine that you follow every day—and that probably includes applying moisturizer morning and night. But how much attention to you pay to your lips? It turns out that they could use some love, too! Here, keep reading to learn how to get more beautiful-looking lips by smoothing lips with a sugar scrub, slathering on a hydrating lip balm, and picking out the most flattering shade of lipstick for you.
TIP #1: EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS WITH A SUGAR SCRUB
Don’t skip this step in your beauty routine—especially if you have dry, flaky lips. Exfoliating your lips can help get rid of dead skin cell buildup on the surface, which in turn can help give your lips a smoother look and feel. And that can allow lipstick to glide on more easily. Try exfoliating your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub. Massage a small amount of your sugar scrub of choice onto your lips with wet fingers, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry (using hot water can dry your lips out further)—just don’t use on chapped lips.
