Every winter it happens.  My lips get dry, chapped and flaky.  But lip scrubs are expensive, so I usually just wait it out until spring.  This winter things are going to change!  I’m ready to pamper my lips with a homemade lip scrub.  Simply mix sugar and petroleum jelly together in a small container until they form a paste, and brush on your lips with a clean toothbrush.  (I’m keeping one just for lip scrubbing.)  Your lips will feel soft and smooth – not a flake in sight!  Now why didn’t I think of this before?

Thanks, RealSimple
