Though winter is on its way out, it has still left its mark in the form of my super chapped lips.

So my mission - Cure dry winter lips without breaking the banks? Well, lovelies, your beauty MacGyver has the ultimate quick tip for you. With regular old table sugar and petroleum jelly, you can make your own lip exfoliant fab enough to rival the likes of high end brands like Smashox and Sugar. Simply apply a small amount of the petroleum jelly on your lips as a base. Then dip that same finger (the p.j. will act as a glue) in about 1/8 of a teaspoon of sugar and rub the sugar onto your lips in a circular fashion. Repeatedly dip your finger in the p.j. followed by the sugar until your lips feel smooth but don’t over do it. Rinse off the excess sugar and moisturize your lips with more jelly or your favorite lip balm and enjoy!
