Lip Scrub for Pigmented Lips: Do It Yourself
Today, I am going to share with you all my recipe for curing those pigmented lips. I have had dark lips almost all my life and in case you all are wondering, no, I haven’t smoked ever and nor am I a coffee addict. Earlier, I always considered them a boon as I could easily do away with only a lip balm or a gloss and skip the lipstick, but lately, I have come to realize that my options have become limited too. I simply couldn’t wear those pinks and nudes as the color just wouldn’t appear, so started trying all home remedies and this is finally the one that worked out best with great results. So, now moving on to the DIY, things you will need:
- Brown Sugar.
- Lemon juice.
- Vitamin E capsule.
- A clean container for storage.
Step 1: Take 1 tablespoon brown sugar in the container.
Step 2: Add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice.
Step 3: Open 1 Vitamin E capsule and squeeze its contents into the container.
Step 4: Mix lightly. Take a small amount and apply to your lips.
Step 5: Leave on for about 10-15 minutes.
Step 6: Scrub it gently and then wipe off with lukewarm water.
Step 7: Apply lip balm of your choice to keep lips moisturized.
Let me list down the benefits of the ingredients included:
Brown Sugar is a coarse type of sugar that is made of natural ingredients and does not irritate the skin. Due to its moisture content, it does not dry out the skin while you exfoliate and is also considered as a rich source of vitamin B.
Lemon is a rich source of citric acid that helps in bleaching and clarifying the skin. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin. It improves blood circulation and helps in the healing process and is used for treating sunburns and as protection from the sun. It also benefits the skin by helping it retain its natural moisture content.
With regular use (i.e. thrice a week), I have observed noticeable difference and my lips have gained a slight pink color. This scrub can be stored for up to two weeks when stored away from sunlight.
Home remedies require time and consistent follow ups to get the desired results, so if you happen to be among those who do not have much patience, then this is not for you else its time to smile and rock the world with colorful lips. If you have any other queries feel free to mention them in the comments section below.
Stay beautiful and look beautiful 🙂

Awesome DIY *happydance* will try it tomorrow *pompom* can i substitute brown sugar with normal sugar?
Yup go ahead Anu *pompom* *pompom* Well I tried with normal sugar but the result wasn’t the same, But if you are using normal sugar do add 1/2 tsp honey to it as normal sugar isn’t as moisturizing. 🙂 🙂 🙂
So simple…will try this today…will it help if I coarsely grind the sugar, the sugar particles generally all fall off during scrubbing when I try sugar scrubs
I know Shreela that sugar particles do tend to fall off during scrubbing, you can grind it coarsely using a mortar and pestel. *announce*
Hey .. can I use the normal white sugar .. instead of the brown sugar?? *scared*
Yes you can Vinu but the effect wont’ be the same, as white sugar is more coarse
