Your lips are the thinnest skin that you have and is the first thing to let you know you are dehydrated. Winter is so hard on the lips. Layer on the shea butter to protect and drink plenty of water are the obvious remedies, but don't forget how important it is to exfoliate. Chapped skin needs a gentle slough to look its best. Grab a little sugar out of the kitchen and mix with coconut oil for a lovely, moisturizing scrub.
