One of the major reasons for lips turning dark is the accumulation of dead cells.
Dark lips are caused by overexposure to the sun, smoking and dehydration. And they sometimes come as tiny, dark spots on your lip(s).
If you are interested in getting rid of those dark lips, just apply the following tips, and you’ll see best results.
- Exfoliate with sugar
Dry, dead skin can make your lips look dull and dark. Regular exfoliation can help remove dead skin cells from your lips. You can use sugar to make an effective scrub. Take some in your fingers, add some water (if you like), and scrub your lips with it.
- Go for honey
Honey is not only tasty; it can also be used to get rid of dark lips because it has the ability to draw moisture to the surface. But that’s not even all, honey also has healing properties. It helps repair wounds and promotes healing in sunburns. So, if you have sun-damaged or chapped and split lips, honey can be helpful.
- Apply cucumber juice
You’ve probably seen beauticians use this on their face; it also works on the lips. Chop/ blend cucumber to get the juice and apply the juice all over lips daily. The difference will be obvious after a few weeks of daily use.
- Use pink lips cream
If you really fancy pink lips and want to get rid of those not so good-looking dark lips, you can invest in pink lips creams. You know these creams have chemical content. Hence, be careful when applying it to your lips.
- Scrub with olive oil
You may have known about olive oil benefits for your health, skin, and hair, but did you know that it can also give you attractive pink lips and moisturize them too? Prepare your own natural scrub by mixing one-half teaspoon of sugar and a few drops of extra virgin olive oil. Scrub your lips gently with this mixture once a week for best results.
