One of my least favorite things about winter (besides all the snow I have to shovel or pray someone else will do by the time we are up & moving for the day – thank you Dad!) is cracked lips. During warm weather, just making sure I drink enough water will keep my lips nice & soft. During the winter, it doesn't matter how much water I drink or lip balm I slather on – they end up cracking and so sore! My poor boys inherited this lovely quirk from me too!
A few years ago, one of my sisters told me to brush my lips with a soft-bristled brush or use a lip scrub. I can't thank her enough for that advice…if only I could remember which of them it was! Now, my lips feel nice year-round and I get to experiment with new flavors for my lip scrubs. Making your own lip scrub is SO easy you'll be wondering why you haven't been doing it for years!
