It's basically winter, which means dry, cracked lips are my worst enemy.
I hate that dry, flaky lip feeling so much that I will pretty much do anything/ask anyone for lip balm if I don't have any. Dry lips pretty much make me feel like I'm dying. Plus they make putting lipstick on impossible and don't even think about drinking red wine.
While lip balm is a great solution (Carmex is my favorite right now, but Burt's Bees will do in a pinch), nothing beats a good lip scrub to prevent the whole gross, unkissable lip situation altogether.
I'm a fan of Fresh's sugar lip polish. It's made out of brown sugar and other natural stuff, so it tastes great and is actually edible. You just rub a little on your lips for about a minute, like a gentle exfoliating scrub and, voila! Your lips are gorge, soft and smooth. The lady at Fresh suggested using it once a week, and the small jar goes a long way.
