One More Use For Your Toothbrush

I regularly brush my tongue and roof of my mouth at the advice of the dentist but I've taken to brushing another part of my mouth . . . without toothpaste, that is. Using a clean and dry toothbrush, you can buff your lips by gently brushing them, too. Not only will this remove flaky skin, it also helps smooth the surface. Just like exfoliation primes your face for makeup, removing dead skin from your lips will help lipstick glide on more evenly for a smooth-looking smile.

I've tried this before and it worked okay...I prefer a lip scrub though. C.O. Bigelow makes a fabulous one that's pretty cheap.

I've done this forever. I'll sometimes also use my shower glove before putting shower cream on it.

I actually use tooth brushes to separate my eyelashes. It works really well with all the bristles.

Oh no she didn't!! Come on Bella, this is like the oldest trick in the book! The one that magazines keep giving when they think we've forgotten (or we've grown out of their target market)

I've done that before. I'm a fan of lip exfoliators though.
