[toc]Lips are one of the most attractive and desirable feature in a woman. Beautiful, rosy, pouty lips are what every woman desires to have. Although it is not possible to change the shape and size of one’s lips, one can definitely improve upon its color and texture.
Lips can darken for a number of reasons ranging from smoking, dehydration, exposure to sun’s rays and pollution. Whatever the reason might be, there are a number of ways by which you can gain back the rosy color of your lips. Here we bring to you a few natural remedies for rosy lips.
Natural Remedies For Rosy Lips
Cream And Honey
Take a tablespoon of milk cream in a bowl and add a tablespoon of organic homey to it. Mix well with a spoon. Apply this over your lips and allow it to remain for 15-20 minutes. Wipe off with a dampened cotton ball. Milk cream when applied over the lips helps to lighten the skin. Honey hydrates and moisturizes the skin and prevents lips from getting chapped.
Aloe vera has soothing and skin healing properties. If your lips appear dark due to constant peeling of skin, then aloe vera will definitely be of help. Cut an aloe vera leaf in half and apply the fresh aloe vera gel over your lips. Doing this regularly will make your lips soft and pink.
Glycerin And Cucumber Juice
Grate a cucumber and squeeze out the cucumber juice. In a small glass jar, pour four tablespoon of the cucumber juice. To this add a tablespoon of glycerine. Close the lid of the jar and give the jar a good shake.
Once the glycerin and cucumber juice is combined well, open the jar and soak a clean cotton ball in this mixture. Rub the cotton ball gently over your lips. Do this two to three times a week and you will have pink and rosy lips in no time.
Soak two to three almonds in a glass of water overnight. The next day, peel the almond skin and grind the almonds to a fine paste. Apply this paste in a thick layer over your lips. Once the paste is dry and begins to flake off, wash your lips with water. Almonds contain skin lightening and skin nourishing properties.
Soak some rose petals in milk for half an hour. Crush the rose petals in a blender along with a bit of milk until you have a smooth and thick paste.
Apply this paste over your lips and allow it to remain for 20-25 minutes. Wash off with water. Rose contains essential oils that moisturizes the lips and also lightens them.
Another great way to achieve baby soft and rosy lips is to use pomegranate seeds. Crush a handful of pomegranate seeds and apply it over your lips. Wash off with water after 15-20 minutes. Pomegranate will lighten the color of your lips.
Mint And Coconut Oil
Blend a few sprigs of fresh mint in a blender and then pass it through a fine sieve to extract its juice. Now mix equal quantities of mint juice and coconut oil. Dab this concoction over your lips and allow it to remain for 20 minutes. Wipe off with a dampened cotton ball.
These were a few natural remedies for attaining baby soft and rosy lips. Always drink plenty of water and keep your lips well-moisturized to prevent lip darkening.
