Islamabad, August 31 (Online): Are your lips turning black and losing their shine and gloss? That does not mean that you are lacking in healthy food, regular exercises and using expensive lip balms. You have to add these remedies in the above list.
Use natural lip scrubber once every week to remove dead cells from your skin and bring back the suppleness. An easy way to do is mixing up few drops of olive oil and 1 tsp sugar and use this for exfoliating your lips. Once you rinse off, apply healing lip butter or your favorite lip moisturizer.
Lemon is used to treat dark skin patches and spots as its bleaching properties will allow your skin to naturally lighten dark lips. Squeeze a lemon and apply the juice on your lips before going to bed. Follow this simple remedy daily for few months. If not this then you can also take a thin slice of lemon, sprinkle a bit of sugar on top and rub it on your lips. It will exfoliate dead cells and make way for new fresh skin.
Another ingredient that can help you get pink lips is beetroot. Its natural bleaching properties can lighten dark lips. Apply fresh beetroot juice on your lips before going to bed. Wash it off the next morning. The natural red color of the juice will turn your dark lips rosy.
Do this daily before going to bed. Another method is mixing equal amounts of beetroot juice and carrot juice. Apply it on lips and gently massage for 10 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Do this remedy once daily for a week or two.
