Winterize your lips…that’s what I told myself I needed to do. So I bought some coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax for a home made lip balm. Unfortunately, my lip balm was more of a winter candle for sale at a discount store because it was missing a wick, than something that I could possibly use on my lips. In fact, I’m thinking about adding a wick to the hot mess and selling them on eBay. In the meantime, I noticed a barrel full of lip chapsticks (puts the chap back in lips!) on sale at my local health food store – no wick required – just a pair of dry lips! So I’m keeping my lips kissable and hydrated — extra virgin olive oil works in a pinch, although I’m not a virgin. I’m even setting my phone timer on 1-hour intervals to check my lipstick to avoid the doomed red-wine stained lips. And besides, perfect red (or black) lipstick on a wineglass rim is super sexy!
