How often should you exfoliate?

Personally, I do this once or twice a week. I feel the lips should heal first before you start the exfoliation process again. It also depends on your lips. Some people have extremely sensitive lips and other don’t . The newbees please try it once a week to see how your lips react. Accordingly, start the exfoliation process.

Some tips and warnings

  • Use granulated sugar only and not the regular one. That might hurt your lips.
  • Do not over scrub it. Be gentle while exfoliating your lips.
  • Just reiterating – exfoliate your lips once or maximum twice a week, not more than that.
  • Use your favorite lip balm after the wiping the scrub off.
  • Clean your fingers before you scrub. You can also use cotton balls to maintain hygiene.
