We're dealing with an unusually cold January in West Alabama and, if you're like me, your lips have been chapped and dry. After spending a small fortune on chapsticks and lip balms, I have FINALLY found a real solution. Having soft, moisturized lips is easy--and you only need two products! Get yourself a lip scrub and an intense lip mask and you'll be able to endure this crazy cold.

LIP SCRUB

Use a lip scrub at least once a day. You'll be able to exfoliate dead skin away from your lips which makes it easier for moisture to penetrate your skin later. I like Lush's sugar lip scrubs (Mint Juleps is my fave), but if you're looking for a cheaper option, try this one from e.l.f.

LIP MASK

I swear by Bite Beauty's Agave Lip Mask. It ain't cheap--it's $26, but it is worth every penny. I tried 3478453758 other products, and nothing comes CLOSE to this stuff. I can apply it once and be good for HOURS, which is major as your girl is a notorious chapstick addict. One tube lasts me about two to three months, so I don't mind shelling out the cash. If that's just not in your budget, try this dupe from SkinFix--you can get it at CVS.
