Among all my family and relatives, I am the only one cursed with dark lips. 🙁 lighter shades of lipstick do not show up on my lips. Some of you girls can feel my pain. My lips are so dark that quite a few people even told me that I should not smoke so much. I must mention, I don’t smoke. See? Now you can feel my pain. I can not help it because it is natural. Guess I was too lazy to even try. Thanks to my dear friend/ secret enemy who commented on my lips. That was a big motivator for me. The rest is history.
However, to my relief, I have succeeded somewhat to overcome my dark lips. My experiments are still in progress but let me share with you some of the tips that I thought of doing. Tips are taken from family friends and some from the internet.
• Try to exfoliate your lips with a baby toothbrush everyday
• Every night before going to bed, apply mixture of honey, glycerin, and lemon juice to lighten dark lips naturally.
• Mix almond oil and milk cream (malai) and apply to the lips. It will moisturize your lips and prevent darkening
• Apple cider vinegar is highly recommended to lighten dark lips naturally
• Don’t bite or lick your lips as it causes the darkening of lips
• Exfoliate your lips to remove the dead skin, as it gives a dark look to your lips. Use a baby tooth brush or home made sugar scrub
• Keep them moisturized. Keep a lip balm handy.
• Increase intake of water. At least 8-10 glass of water are recommended
• Massage your lips with yoghurt in morning and evening.
• A mixture of some gram flour, a spoon each of honey and yogurt and a few drops of lime juice may also be used regularly on the lips to make them red
• Apply juice of beetroot. It is also known to lighten dark lips naturally as it has natural bleaching properties
• A little daub of Pomegranate juice on lips will definitely lighten dark lips naturally.
• Avoid intake of tea and coffee, or minimize it.
• Apply home made ghee on your lips and see the effect.
• Use lip balm which has SPF in it or use sunscreen, as it will prevent further darkening.
• Paste of honey and crushed rose petals together. Apply it everyday to get pink lips.
• Apply coconut oil at bedtime to get rid of dark lips.
• Increase leafy vegetables and fruits in your diet. Add milk in your diet as it is very potent in whitening properties.
• Please don’t use bad quality lip cosmetics
• More important, do not get obsessed with your lipsticks.
• Keep your lips bare sometime. Let them breath.
• QUIT SMOKING
Hope you all enjoyed it. Please do comment if I went wrong anywhere. Especially I am still hoping for that magic potion to help me out. So kindly share your tips also..
