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.

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
