Dry,  chapped and dark lips can be very unattractive. Concealing with lipstick isn't what every woman wants. After that long, hard day,  you wipe off your makeup to reveal your permanently rough lips. It's isn't only ugly in sight,  it can be embarrassing if you always have to top up that surface with something every time you have to see someone else.

Why you have to exfoliate your lips

There are many reasons why our lips become unattractive over time. Cheap lipstick is a major cause. Other causes are dirt,  food debris,  harsh lip products,  dryness and lack of proper care. The skin on our lips can be very difficult to hydrate and that's why drinking enough water is another way to get them nourished. Doctors will tell you that dry lips could be a sign of dehydration.

Attractive,  soft,  supple and clean lips is achievable and I will show you how to get them. Exfoliation is the process of removing dead cells and dirt from the surface of the skin. You can click here to read about facial exfoliation.

There are many homemade remedies to help you get cleaner and smoother lips but many of us do not have the patience to make this concoction. We would rather look for already prepared lip exfoliating products or forget about the process overall and keep concealing with lip products. One way or the other, it still comes back to it -  dry,  chapped lips. But here, right now,  we can go the easy,  lazy way and still get the same results.

Toothbrush for lip exfoliation!

Isn't that just beautiful? An household,  within- reach item. You can use a toothbrush to brush away dead skin cells from your lips surface. Moisturize your brush and lips with water and in a circular motion, gently scrub away your lip surface. You can use a baby brush or a soft brush for this to avoid bruising yourself.

One common mistake people make is to use the same brush they use for brushing their teeth for exfoliation. The disadvantage of this is that some of the dead skin cells stuck on your brush can get into your teeth. That isn't very healthy. Purchasing another brush for this purpose is therefore the best.

You can repeat this process twice or thrice every week and in a month,  you get to see a remarkable difference.

Are you going to try this? Who knows, you may achieve the pink lips you've always wanted to.
