To make this lip food, you will need: a small amount of lemon juice, a teaspoon of petroleum jelly (original Vaseline), a small tin or jar, 4 teaspoons of caster sugar and two toothpicks 😉

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.

The paste should look like this. 😊

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, and should look like this. (shown above) Finally, pour your lip scrub into your tin/jar and you're done!

Taa daaa! 😘 a long lasting, homemade, tasty lip scrub that can be used anytime and anywhere!

Now time to clean up! Petroleum jelly is hard to clean, but washing up liquid is a dispersant so use washing up liquid to scrub off the petroleum jelly and it will come off effortlessly :)
