Chapped lips are one of the most commonly complained about beauty ailments. Unfortunately, this annoying problem persists year-round, rain or shine, wind or snow, and I am determined not to let anything bring down my bright lipstick game this summer. So I reached out to the experts at LATHER for tips on how to exfoliate my lips to get the perfect pout. LATHER’s vanilla & argan lip scrub is a certified organic, paraben-free lip-smoothing exfoliator that uses sugar cane crystals to gently buff away flaky skin from dry, chapped lips. The emollient-rich base is formulated with honey, a natural humectant, plus argan, coconut and rosehip seed oils, rich in fatty acids and vitamin E, and beeswax to restore moisture and softness and provide a protective layer to help prevent future dehydration. The sweet and comforting vanilla aroma combines with spearmint oil for a pleasant, tingling sensation. Relationship status/Does it work? I’m attached at the lip to this scrub (yes, I know how cheesy that is but it’s true!) After one use, my lips have never been smoother or plumper – the proof is in the video. The scrub worked instantly and I was able to apply my lipstick with ease. The thing that makes this lip scrub by LATHER stand out among all of the others is the fact that is is created with organic products that are actually good for your body and your lips – no more of this artificial flavored stuff. How does it work? Aside from serving as a sweet treat (you’ll develop a mild addiction to licking your lips), dab a small amount of scrub on your finger and rub all over your lips. Let it melt into your lips for 1-2 minutes and then scrub it away with your fingers or a toothbrush. You will virtually watch as the dead cells melt away, leaving you with the perfect lips for gloss or lipstick application. I recommend exfoliating 2-3 times per week to keep your lips smooth and to help prepare them for an even application of lip color. Editor’s tip! I always apply an oil to my lips after exfoliating. It helps to hydrate your lips, lock in the moisture and protects it from damaging free radicals. LATHER’s Chia seed & passion fruit facial oil is an organic chia seed oil. Chia seed is one of the richest plant sources of moisturizing and soothing omega-3 alpha linolenic acid and packed with antioxidants. This oil is also combined with passion fruit seed oil (aka maracuja oil), abundant in hydrating omega-6 linoleic acid and antioxidant vitamin C. The Grape seed oil, rosehip oil and Tahitian monoi oil deliver additional moisture and antioxidant protection with Vitamins E and A and Lycopene.
