Dry lips can happen during any season but in the winter, many experience dry and cracked or flakey lips more than any other time.
One little beauty trick I’ve learned in order to deal with dry lips is by using a sugar cube and coconut oil. Not only does the sugar cube act as a natural exfoliant, lips are nourished and hydrated with coconut oil. It’s a perfect combo.
Simply place a small amount of virgin coconut oil on the cube and gentle rub on lips and around the contour areas. And voila! Soft, clean lips. .
Tip: Keep the cube in a small dish on your bathroom counter and reuse with oil many times over.
