We all want soft kiss-able lick-able lips! Especially with Valentine's day around the corner! During the winter months our lips seem to be the most chapped! Applying chapstick over and over is not gong to take care of this for you. Even Blistex which I for one swear by will not reduce the chappiness of your lips. It is very important to exfoliate your lips to avoid chapped and peeling we sometimes get! Exfoliating your lips will also help get rid of those dead skin cells that like to hang around on your pout. This will leave your lips feeling soft and smooth. If you are sick of chippity chapped lips and are ready experience soft luscious lips try this lip scrub. The best part is you can make it yourself, all you need are a few ingredients from the kitchen.
