Lips are the most sensitive part of the body prone to lose moisture and exposed to all the chemicals we use on face or whatever we intake.Darkening of lips may take away your natural beauty.Dry , chapped lips, deficient in moisture make your face look dull. Use of lipsticks and chemical tints and not removing makeup regularly can further build up the problem. To make your lips look gorgeously beautiful and naturally pink, follow the following simple steps.
Here Are The 8 DIY Home Remedies To Lighten Dark Lips:
Take a glass of water and squeeze half a lemon to it. Mix it well and pour this water in an ice tray. Now in every cube in the tray, add a small, finely cut lemon slice and freeze / refrigerate.Once it freezes, take one ice cube and start rubbing on your lips. Rub the lemon slice frozen therewith too for 2 minutes until your lips feel completely moist and the dead skin over you lips seems to be removed.Take a teaspoon of lemon juice mixed with a few drops of coconut oil and dab it on your lips. Once it seems to dry out a bit (in about half an hour), take another lemon ice and seal the moisture in the lips but this time don’t rub the lemon slice too hard as you just want to seal in the moisture.
This remedy is really helpful when the main cause of darkening of lips is the constant contact to sun’s UV rays.

This will increase blood circulation in your lips and exfoliate simultaneously. Just remember to be really gentle while you do this. If you do this even a little harder, the sensitive skin on your lips may start bleeding.
Mint juice is really effective to nourish your lip area and give a smooth texture to it. Take a bunch of mint leaves and add some water to it and blend to extract the juice. Dab a cotton pad in the mint juice and apply on your lips really gently. You can also mix some cardamom juice to increase the blood circulation in the lips and improve its flavour. Do this twice a day for 15 minutes and then don’t forget to lock the moisture in using a good lip balm.
Sugar Scrub And Aloevera
You can use sugar scrub for exfoliation of your lips and remove the dead skin cells. Take a tablespoon of brown sugar and mix with half a spoon of olive oil and honey each and rub it on your lips and then apply some aloe vera gel to it for 7-8 minutes . Clean it and then apply a lip balm or vaseline petroleum jelly or even some glycerin.
Lips being really sensitive demand really good care from us. Apply a lip balm 4-5 times a day and make sure that you use a lip balm containing sun protection.UVA and UVB rays from sun destroys not only facial skin cells but also damage your lips and darken them. But regular care of your lips can renew the skin and maintain it. But do not forget that you cannot replenish your original lip colour or skin tone to more than two shades, no matter how hard or less you try. You can only try to maintain it to its best by keeping your lips hydrated.
