When it comes to skincare, our lips are the most neglected part of our face. We only tend to fidget with our lips once we notice that they are turning dark and are getting chapped. Do you want to get rid of your dark pigmented lips and get back the naturally soft pink lips? You are not alone, a lot of people are not blessed with naturally pink lips. But now you can lighten dark lips at home. Try these 4 effective home remedies you can try at home.
Use a Sugar Scrub
Scrub the lip skin with a mixture of one teaspoon each of almond oil and honey and two teaspoons of sugar. Scrub gently as the skin on your lips is quite sensitive. The almond oil and honey will give your lips moisture even as the sugar removes the dead skin. Regular usage of this scrub can give you pink lips permanently.
Peppermint oil lip balm
Some cosmetic companies use peppermint oil in lip balm to create a natural pink look. Peppermint oil contains menthol, a compound that can dilate the blood vessels when applied topically, according to a 2016 study. This may result in temporarily flushed lips. People can purchase lip balm that contains peppermint in stores or online.
Always remove make-up at night
Never go to your bed with your makeup on. Make sure that you remove your makeup completely before retiring to bed. If you leave your lipstick overnight, it can cause your lips to become extremely dry and discolored. Remove your lipstick and lip liner using a make-up remover or cleanser before bed. You can also use olive or almond oil to wipe off your lipstick using a cotton ball.
Prime Your Lips
Before you apply lipstick, it is always a good idea to lightly brush your lips with almond or coconut oil. Wait for a few minutes and then apply lipstick. You can also use lip balm instead. This acts as a protective layer, keeping the lips moisturized and preventing them from drying out due to the lipstick.
