We can’t emphasise enough how important a role lips play in defining the overall beauty of your face. A pair of pink, luscious lips really notch up the beauty quotient. But thanks to the pollution levels these days, our lips are getting darker. Darkening of the edges is just a start. And that’s not a pretty look at all. But worry not, you can easily get rid of dark lips and get supple pink lips just with the use of following methods. But remember, you have to be consistent with them.
Here are some surefire ways of getting pink lips:
Lemon Honey Mixture
Mix one part each of honey and lemon juice. Apply it on your lips and let it stay there for an hour. Wash it off with cool water. The honey will nourish your lips and make them pink while the citrus content of lemon will make sure that tan gets removed. You can also refrigerate this mixture for a week!
Frequency: You can do this a few times in a day
Slice a beetroot and store it in the fridge for a while. Now when it gets cool enough, take it out and rub on your lips for a few minutes. Keep it lying there on lips for 20-25 minutes. Let the beetroot work its magic. Then wash it off. Besides removing the tan, beetroot’s antioxidant content helps in making the skin healthy and young. You should get pinker lips in a few days with this method.
Frequency: Once a day
This wonder green material lightens the lips by inhibiting the natural pigmentation process. Apply aloe vera gel on lips and let it dry. Then remove it with lukewarm water.
Frequency: Once a day
You need to refrigerate the rose water first. Before bedtime, dip a cotton ball in the cooled rose water and apply gently on your lips. Do this a few more times. Then go to bed, leaving it on your lips. Rinse it off in the morning. Rose water helps stimulating the blood flow to your lips and also brightens them up!
Frequency: Once every night
Virgin Coconut Oil
With this method, you have to use coconut oil as your lip balm. Keep it handy with you in a purse/wallet. And apply throughout the day whenever you feel like. Also, use it before going to bed as well. Coconut oil works excellently in replenishing your lips and thus turning them pinker and softer.
Frequency: Throughout the day
