It's Pancake Day, The Brit Awards are on TV tonight - it's the ideal time for a girly night in. We've got some Shrove Tuesday themed pampering ideas to go with your pancakes. Plenty of beauty buys utilise lemon and sugar as ingredients, too. Lemon is astringent, cleansing, toning and refreshing while sugar is a fantastic natural exfoliator.
Lush lip scrubs are made with a base of castor sugar to gently scrub away any flaky skin, leaving your pout perfectly soft and smooth.
Lush Sweet Lips lip scrub (£4.95) blends in rich and creamy cocoa absolute and vanilla extract for a delicious chocolatey flavour.
Sugar is also used as a base for some waxes. Try Parissa 2in1 Roll-On Body Waxing Sugar (£19.99) for precise hair removal that lasts.
For super-soft hands and feet, try Lush Lemony Flutter cuticle butter (£5.95 for 50g). It's a multi-purpose, intensely rich moisturiser that’s perfect for softening not only cuticles but also hard skin, ideal to tackle winter-ravaged feet, hands and elbows.
You can also use a humble lemon from the supermarket for all sorts of beauty treats. Squeeze into warm water and add a teaspoon of honey tomorrow morning for a natural detox drink. A lemon rinse (juice and warm water) after shampoo can add shine to your hair. Or treat yourself to organic lemon oil. It's used in beauty treats such as Lanolips Lemonaid Lip Aid (£9.18) as a natural exfoliate.
