Why do even natural pink lips gets darker?
We all want to look good and to get that attraction, we spend a lot of our hard earned money on various cosmetic therapies. These artificial methods can sometimes cast adverse effect on our health and may bring undesirable changes. Our smile gets better with pink lips and to get those pink lips, we tend to use many products available in the market. All these products also give you desired results instantly but cost a considerable amount. I have compiled some of the best homemade remedies in this article to get soft and pink lips at the comfort of your home, costing far less than the artificial methods most of you are used to. Before starting with the remedies, I would like to explain some prominent reasons behind dark lips.
(a) Aging- Aging is one of the prominent reasons for darker lips. As we grow old, production of many enzymes and hormones essential to maintain the younger look becomes less and thus we end up with darker lips.
(b) Exposure to sun- Over exposure to sun cause dark lips due to harmful UV rays.
(c) Smoking- Smoking is also one of the main reasons which makes our lips look darker.
(d) Excessive intake of caffeine also causes dark lips.
(e) Unhealthy and improper diet also cause dark lips. As your body is undernourished, it gets evident with your dark and dry lips.
Best home remedies for you
All the above reasons directly affect the shade of our lips. In this section, some of the best homemade remedies are explained to make the lips naturally pink.

You can simply rub a slice of lemon on your lips gently for just two minutes and then leave it for 10 minutes. After this, wash with mild warm water. Do this every alternate day to get pink lips naturally.
Honey- Honey is also beneficial in this process. Take two teaspoon of honey and one teaspoon of lime juice. Mix it properly and apply it on your lips for 10 minutes before washing with mild warm water. Use this for about a month to get definite results.

Lemon and sugar- Take a slice of lemon and put some particles of sugar on it. Now, rub this on your lips just for two minutes and then leave it for 15 minutes. Wash it with lukewarm water. Sugar is one of the best natural exfoliating agent, thus removes dead skin cells and lemon is a natural bleaching agent.
Rose petals- Rose petals can do wonders to your dark lips. Take a couple of rose petals and soak it in milk for half an hour. Now, add a few drops of glycerin to it. Take it out and then make a paste by adding a little honey. Now, scrub or massage your lips with this paste for 5 minutes and then leave it for 20 minutes. Regular use can offer surprising results of pink lips.
Beetroot and carrot- Beetroot and carrot juice are excellent nourishing agent for your lips. Take out juice of a couple of beetroot and carrot, add some glycerin to it and use it on your lips before going to bed. Soak a cotton ball and dab it on your lips, leave it overnight to get excellent results.
Sugar and lemon juice- Add some sugar to lemon juice and scrub it over your lips with a cotton ball to remove dead skin and dead cells accumulated over the lips. Then apply glycerin mixed with rose water to get pink lips. Routine use of this remedy is a definite result oriented.
Turmeric powder- A pinch of turmeric powder in a teaspoonful of milk is an excellent remedy to get pink lips. You can use it daily before going to bed to get excellent results.
All these remedies are excellent and time tested with no fear of any side effects. You can use it at the comfort of your home with negligible cost. It is always better to follow some do’s and don’ts to keep out beauty intact. Below there are some simple suggestions to be kept in mind always to maintain pink lips and their natural colour.
