If you want pinker, natural lips, all you need to do is reach out to your kitchen cabinet and soon you will realize getting pink lips is not a totally difficult task at all.
Here are 13 effective steps to get back your naturally soft and pink lips.
1. Exfoliate with a toothbrush
To get rid of your dark lips, start exfoliating your lips regularly. One of the most simple ways to exfoliate your lips is by using a toothbrush. All you need to do is take a toothbrush with soft bristles, dampen it with water and start rubbing it gently on your lips. Rub the toothbrush in circular motions gently. By doing this you will stimulate blood flow and at the same time all the dead skin will come off making your lips look pink and soft.
2. Clean 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.
3. Use homemade scrubs
Since your lips are sensitive when compared to the rest of the face, try to use a homemade scrub to exfoliate them instead of the ones that are available loaded with chemicals. Start exfoliating your lips with a homemade scrub. You can whip up a natural homemade scrub using sugar, honey, and organic coconut oil. Simply add two tablespoons of white or brown sugar, one teaspoon honey, and one tablespoon coconut oil. Mix all the ingredients and massage it gently on your lips for 30 seconds and then wash it off with warm water.
4. Moisturize your lips
To get rid of dry and flaky lips, regularly moisturize your lips. When you frequently moisturize them, you will notice that they will start looking soft and pink. For intense moisturization use a hydrating lip balm throughout the day and use a dollop of petroleum jelly before going to bed. You should always wear a lip balm with an SPF to protect your lips from the harmful UV rays in extremely sunny conditions. You can also use cocoa butter, olive oil or coconut oil for intense moisturization.
5. Stop smoking
Smoking is not only injurious to your health but also for your beauty. Smoking cigarettes can stain lips and teeth, turning them dull and dark. So if you really want pink lips, stop smoking and you will notice an improvement in the appearance of your lips.
6. Honey, almond oil and sugar help in getting pink lips
Amalgamate honey, sugar and almond oil together. Massage your lips with this mixture for ten minutes on a daily basis for natural pink lips.
7. Apply beetroot paste for a natural lip tint
The most inexpensive home remedy for achieving fuller, softer pink lips is beetroot. Beetroot serves as a great natural tint in order to get pink lips.
All you need to do is slice and squeeze a beetroot and mix the juice thus obtained with fresh cream milk. Use a cotton swab to dab it over your lips and keep it overnight. Repeat this exercise daily.
8. Choose the right lipstick to prevent darkening of your lips
You might be tempted to make your lips pink using makeup but did you know the right pink lips stick might actually be making your lips dark?
Before buying any lipstick, test if the ingredients are safe by rubbing the lipstick swatch with a coin. If the swatch turns brown or black, it means the lipstick has expired or the ingredients will cause your lips to darken.
9. Don’t lick your lips
In order to moisten our lips we tend to lick them when they become dry, but this can actually cause them to become even more dry.
Avoid licking your lips all the time and instead use an intense moisturizer to moisten your lips. Keep a small jar of lip balm of petroleum jelly handy all the time.
10. Use rose petals
You can use rose petals in different ways to get pink lips. Crushed rose petals, when applied to your lips will give your lips a naturally rosy color! Or you can also use a rose petal, honey, and milk cream paste to scrub your lips twice a week. Another method is to soak rose petals in raw milk and grind the mixture to make a paste. Add honey and saffron to it and apply it twice a day. Leave it for 15 minutes before rinsing it off to get a pretty pink flush.
