A: Great question. As winter is the driest season, your lips are not alone in the quest for nourishment.

Here are a couple of my favorite recipes taken from Janice Cox’s January 2009 article, Body and Soul: Soothing Glosses and Balms.

Aloe Vera Lip Gloss
Makes ½ ounce 

This light lip gloss will protect, shine and moisturize your lips. Aloe vera gel’s high moisture content is very soothing. If you have an aloe plant, simply split one of the leaves lengthwise and squeeze out some of the clear gel.
