a few months ago I purchased one of these to exfoliate my lips daily. I got mine off Amazon for $6 and thought this was the best thing on the planet…..
Hey doll hey!! How are you doing today? Great I hope. Well…. I come to you with a caution about exfoliating your lips daily and or being too rough on your lips!
I use one of those double sided silicone exfoliating brushes. I use to use it daily on just the small nub side …. but I had forgotten to exfoliate my lips in about 2 weeks … so I used first the bigger nib side and then I went back over my lips using the smaller nib side … I noticed I had a ton of dead skin sloughing off so I decided to rub it a bit more and I applied a bit too much pressure.
I now have a sore patch of skin on my upper lip. It hurts a heap and the only thing i can think to do is apply some neosporin and give it time to heal.
So I’m coming to you with a caution … when exfoliating your lips use only the gentlest of pressure and do not exfoliate for more than 1 minute… even if you having gotten all of the dead skin off in the first go …. leave it for the next day ….this way you don’t end up with a nasty abrasion on your lip too.
Well that’s all for now dolls …. hope all is well …. Remember …. Save a spoon for a bit of lipstick.
