Our lips need as much care as the rest of our body. Just like you have a skin care routine, you need to have a lip care routine too. Here’s how you go about it.
Sugar Lip Scrub
Take 1 tbsp of honey, sugar and essential olive oil. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl for a thick consistency. Now, apply this mixture on your lips. Gently stroke the scrub along with your finger on your lips. Wash with hot water and promptly apply a lip balm to secure moisture.
Before going to bed at night, apply 1 tbsp of lemon juice in 3-4 drops of coconut oil on your lips. Leave it overnight. Lemon will help in reducing darkness and pigmentation.
Massage your lips
Massage your lips regularly with milk cream or yogurt to lighten lip colour. This will also keep lips moisturised. You can also use a mixture of crushed rose petals and milk cream to get pink lips.
Make a lip mask using gram flour, honey and lemon juice. Rub your lips daily with this mask and leave it on for five minutes before you rinse off.
