Lip Care – How To Exfoliate Your Lips

I have super dry lips. I have always had dry and crack lips ever since I can remember. That’s one of the reasons why I am forever looking for a good lip balm that I ended up with so many different kinds of lip balms.

The other day I stumbled upon this lip tool. Fabulips ‘Pout’-o-matic

It is a tool for exfoliating your lips. And it works like an electric toothbrush.

This is the way it works. First, you put a lip balm or a lip exfoliating cream or a lip moisturizer or whatever you have that moisturizes and exfoliate your lips. Then, you work it on your lips like this.

It’s suppose to exfoliate your lips. But I was thinking how can it exfoliate your lips when it has a rubberize head?

It will only massage your lips. But I don’t think it will be able to take out the dry, crack skin on your lips. Even if you put an exfoliating lip cream.

Then it gave me an idea. I got the mechanics of how it is suppose to work.

I have a battery powered toothbrush that I haven’t use yet. It has been sitting inside my bathroom drawer for a long time already. (I still prefer the old school kind of toothbrush. I feel that it cleans my teeth better.)

I think that if you have a bristle head then it will really exfoliate your crack lips. Definitely not a rubberize head. Even if you put an exfoliating lip cream. The only thing a rubberize head can do is massage your lips.

So, I tried it. I put lip balm or lip moisturizer on my lips at night like I normally do and in the morning after taking a bath and before getting ready for the day, I use this.

By this time my lips has already absorbed the lip balm or lip moisturizer and the skin of my lips is already soft. And it is easier to exfoliate.

This brand Oral B has soft bristles, it is so gentle on the lips.

I have been doing this everyday ever since I discovered it. And my lips has never been so soft and smooth. And another good thing is it will make your lipstick look better. No more yucky looking dry lips like this.

These are the lip balms/moisturizers that I use. These are my favorite these days.

This method doesn’t stop your lips from drying. Your lips will always dry up because of the weather or for whatever reasons. This will only make you exfoliate your lips better. 

Try it and let me know if it worked for you the way it did for me.
