Exfoliation is the key to smooth skin. When it comes to your lips, we all want smooth lips. So does it make sense to exfoliate your lips? You may feel like exfoliating your lips will have the same results as exfoliating your skin, but it is not the case. Your lips aren't like most of your skin because it has a different top layer that doesn't accumulate dead cells. Your lips are naturally smooth and don't need exfoliation, and if you do choose to exfoliate them there's a good chance that you'll end up with damaged or chapped lips, the exact opposite of what you wanted! To actually keep your lips smooth and healthy is to apply lip sunscreen and moisturizers to protect your lips from becoming chapped or irritated!
