Oh, exfoliating.. I always forget to do it, even though I know that it's very important for the skin and for the lips. On the picture below you can see what a difference exfoliating makes. Imagine if you had to apply lipstick or even worse matte lipstick on the lips from the picture on the left. A true nightmare! Exfoliating your lips is the quickest way to soft lips. However, keep in mind that sometimes exfoliating isn't enough if the lips are way too dry.
The lip scrub that I am using is by Lush and it smells absolutely ah-mazing! So yummy. The great thing about the brand Lush is that their products are vegan, also made from 100% natural ingredients and were not tested on animals.
