For many people, their lips are the feature that they value the most. I mean, all you need is a swipe of red lipstick for an instant confidence boost, am I right?

If you’re not convinced yet, sit back, because you will be soon.


Love Your Lips

We all know that exfoliation is important. And while many people like to use a scrub on their face, we now know that chemical exfoliation is less damaging to the skin that it’s textured counterpart. Scrubs that contains salt, kernels and microbeads can over time cause micro-tears in the skin which can make you look older before your time. Pass! Chemical exfoliants, such as toners and serums that contain AHAs and BHAs melt the bonds that hold the dead skin to the surface, and are a much safer choice to use on your face.

Lips, however, are a different story. Yes, the skin on our lips is thinner, but it also heals a lot more quickly. This means that you can scrub away without having to fear any long-term repercussions. Whoo hoo!
