Homemade Lip Scrub.

If you're like me and religiously wear lipstick, but no matter how much lipbalm you put on you still get areas of dead skin then your lips need a good exfoliation! Lush's lip scrubs have had a lot of hype recently, but at £5 a tub they're a little pricey, so hallelujah, praise the lord, here's how to make you're own! (just call me Delia... Smith that is...)

You will need:
2 teaspoons of white sugar
1/2 teaspoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of honey
A few drops of food flavouring (optional)

What you do:
It's so simple, literally mix all the ingredients together in a bowl stirring really well. It should form a thick consistency. Then rub a small amount onto lips ensuring they are lipbalm/product free. You need to rub quite well for about a minute. The olive oil provides moisturisation, whilst the honey is for taste (as is any food flavouring), and the sugar for exfoliation! Then wipe your lips well and you should be left with lovely silky smooth lips :) hey presto!

Hope you all enjoy! Sorry about the picture, there's just no possible way (other than glitter which isn't known for its lip scrubbing effects) which can make the product look pretty!!
Lots of love
