Pancake Tuesday – Without the Calories !!

Tuesday, 17 February 2015

Today is Pancake Tuesday, the day we eat delicious pancakes oozing with butter and maple syrup or coated with lemon and sugar – YUMMY!! 

But what about those of us that are watching our diet? Do we have to miss out on all the fun? 

LUSH say NO!!! 

While many of us will be using them to coat our pancakes, lemon and sugar also make great ingredients to coat your body with … lemon is astringent, cleansing, toning and refreshing while sugar is a fantastic natural exfoliator.

Lemony Flutter cuticle butter (£6.75 for 50g) … a multi-purpose, intensely rich moisturiser that’s perfect for softening not only cuticles but also hard skin on feet, hands and elbows. Intensely lemon-scented, lemon oil is very softening
and used to treat corns and callouses. Lemon juice, rich in
vitamins, is a very versatile tonic juice. The blend of very rich oils, including flaxseed, castor oil, palm kernel oil, soya oil and organic avocado all nourish and the mucilaginous texture is extremely softening. Mint Julips lip scrub (£5.50 for 25g) … as soon as you gently rub Mint Julips on your lips, you’ll feel its invigorating peppermint oil tingling away while the sugar crystals buff away any flaky skin. Tagetes oil and jojoba oil join forces to leave your lips luscious, but not greasy, while vanilla and limonene scent sweetens the deal. Bohemian soap (£3.10 for 100g) … a simple but powerful blend of lemon oil and glycerine, with a palm-free soap base. Bohemian is gently cleansing, perfect for adding a little lift to your day.

So if you are watching your sugar intake but don’t want to miss out on all the fun this Pancake Tuesday, stop off at your local Lush Store and treat yourself – the healthy way!
