6. LEMONADE LIP SCRUB
I love lemon, so this lip scrub really jumped out at me.It is amazing.If you want a picture tutorial, check out the source site as well;you’ll figure out exactly how your scrub should look.While this is refreshing in the summer, it’s also fantastic in the winter when you’re looking for a little dose of sunshine.Speaking of which, all that vitamin C does wonders for your lips!
A small amount of lemon juice
1 teaspoon of petroleum jelly
A small tin or jar
4 teaspoons of caster sugar
Firstly, gradually add the lemon juice to the caster sugar and mix with your provided toothpick until a thick gooey paste is formed…Keep adding the lemon juice gradually!The lemon juice acts as a lip cleanser- the acid of the lemon kills the bacteria on the lips.It also tastes great too!Do not add too much lemon juice in one go!If you’ve added too much juice, just even it out with a couple more teaspoons of sugar.The sugar acts as an exfoliator to the lips, removing the dead skin.Now leave the paste to the side for a while.We need to heat our petroleum jelly in the microwave for about 2 minutes.After two minutes in the microwave, the petroleum jelly should be liquid as shown above.The petroleum jelly acts as a moisturiser and gives your new soft lips a lovely polish!Now pour the paste into the basin of petroleum jelly and mix with a couple of toothpicks.The paste will become runny again if you have noticed.We don’t want runny paste!To rethicken the paste, gradually add teaspoons of caster sugar.And a little more lemon juice to add some flavour!The paste should be a lot thicker than before as the petroleum jelly hardens…Finally, pour your lip scrub into your tin/jar and you’re done!
