Tina’s Tried & Tested Tuesday Tips #4

This week it’s a beauty tip (for men and women)!


Do you get dry/chapped lips? This tried and tested method is great for exfoliating your lips. It’s especially great when the cold weather is out to get you!Untitled design (1)

After brushing your teeth, use a separate toothbrush to your regular one. Gently brush your lips in all directions to remove dead skin. You can also put on lip balm beforehand as sometimes this helps to show up the dry bits.

Not only does this remove the dead skin, but it also plumps your lips a bit, giving them an altogether healthier look.

If you do this before bed, put on some lip balm afterwards and wake up with smoother lips!

As usual, tried and tested by yours truly!

Let me know if it helps!

          Haha.No, it’s a good idea! It’s just that I never thought of using it really. I have a separate toothbrush 🙂

            Which makes sense! I just remember reading that mint naturally plumps the lips but toothpaste on your lips… Maybe not!

    I have a lovely lip polish that is a nice gentle scrub for making them soft. Love it.

      Yeah I have a scrub too. Toothbrush is handy if without though 🙂 which do you use?
