Chubby cheeks, dimple chin, but what about your lips? Are they rosy enough to complete the poem?
Beautiful and healthy lips are something which everyone desires to have. Fortunately, you don’t have to go overboard to get the healthy lips of your dreams. All you have to do is just make minor changes to your diet and lifestyle. Read on to find how!
Your once upon a time rosy lips have turned darker now! Here’s where you might have gone wrong.
>May be you did not stick to your brand? There are so many beauty products coming up in the market, where everything claims to help you look good. Does this mean that you’ve to experiment with all the brands out there? The answer is no. Fix your cosmetics. Using wrong lipsticks can lead to sudden changes in lip color.
>Or perhaps you have been smoking. Smokers usually tend to have darker lips. So unless you’re not really bothered about how your lips look, you should cut down on the puffs.
>Probably you’re one of those coffee addicts. If yes, then limit your consumption to a maximum of 2 cups a day.
>Do you bite or lick your lips frequently? Time to get rid of this habit then. This only makes your condition worse.
>Or, the reason of the season- you have had prolonged exposure to sunlight. While going out in the sun, always make sure to apply a lip balm of minimum SPF 15, in the absence of which lips tend to get pigmented.
Now that the damage has already been done, how do you revert to your rosy lips? Here are some home remedies which will help you smile confidently.
- Apply a mixture of lemon and glycerine daily.
- Make a natural scrub for your lips by mixing almond oil with honey and sugar. Exfoliate your lips gently.
- Apply a paste of milk cream and saffron which you can wash off when dry.
- Dab a cotton ball dipped in cilantro leaf juice on your lips to lighten them up.
- Regularly apply carrot juice for luscious lips.
- Before you go to bed, apply ghee/butter to get smooth and supple lips.
To add to the list, make sure to replenish your body with enough fluids and water. Hydration is important to maintain a healthy skin and lips. You can also have fruit juice as they contain vitamins and minerals which are helpful in lightening your lip color. Take a balanced diet with enough vitamin-C in it. And never go to bed with lipstick on.
