Combat Chapped Lips

Winter always seem to do a number on my lips. With all of the wind and cold weather, they end up chapped or pealing. Luckily I have found a 1-2 punch that helps to get rid of dry patches and keep lips soft supple and kissable (Smooch!)

The first step is to exfoliate your lips using a lip scrub. I like This sugar scrub by LUSH because if you get a little in your mouth, no worries, its just sugar! It also tastes like bubblegum! LUSH makes this in other flavors too. 

To use this just put a little on your finger and work it into your lips. Either wash or lick off! I like to use it right before I wash my face. You can also use white sugar from your kitchen and it will have the same effect.

After your lips are nice and soft finish with your favorite lip balm. I like this balm by Kiehl's because it comes in a tube (no need to get your fingers dirty) and it is a very soft formula so it absorbs into your lips well. Another great product is the lip balm in the white container by Dior. It is a thicker formula and gives a nice protective layer to the lips. I am currently out of that one :-(

And Ta-Da! Beautiful lips for the winter and all seasons.
