Prepare to Pucker

Constantly chapped lips are not the most enjoyable part of our winter wonderland... In my book they rank right up there with cleaning snow off the car, frozen car doors, and face-planting on the ice. 
Lip exfoliants can help this problem. You can buy them but chances are you have everything you need to make one already in your kitchen.
What you need
olive oil (or oil of your choice)
Simply put some sugar into a bowl. How much you make is up to you. Next add a little bit of oil at a time until the sugar becomes a moist paste. Put a little on your finger and massage your lips. Follow with your favorite lip balm. Your lips will be so kissably smooth you will be dying to use them! 
Use the rest of your sugar scrub on you elbows, knees, and feet. It is a great alternative to expensive exfoliating scrubs. 

Advice: Everyone is different you maybe able to use this on your lips everyday, you may be able to use it once a week. Do not start out at once a day. Try every couple days first then decide if you can handle everyday or if you need to add a few more days in between.
