Get rid of those dead cells first

Have you ever realized that just like your skin; even your lips require gentle and regular exfoliation? We'll tell you how. As a daily routine post brushing your teeth at night, lightly scrub your lips with a soft-bristled toothbrush for about 2 to 3 minutes. Alternatively, you can also use a mild scrub comprising of sugar, honey and castor oil on a bi-weekly basis for visible results. Use your fingertips to massage this scrub in circular motions on your lips. Not only will this shed off dead cells, but will also stimulate blood flow to give way to enviably soft lips. Practice to see the magical results!


Pamper and moisturize your lips

Moisturizing is to your lips, what oxygen it to your lungs. We're attempting to tell you that without sufficient moisturizing, even the most well-endowed lips will shrivel and darken with time. So keep a good lip balm, or a tube of petroleum jelly handy with you at all times during the day. In case you are on the lookout for a natural product, cocoa butter, olive oil and fresh cream are great choices, provided you can manage to carry them around with you.
P.S- Have a tendency to lick your lips frequently? Don't, because it triggers their darkening and drying further!


Provide the royal night treatment

We all love getting pampered, don't we? It's time to pamper your lips with a mixture of honey and crushed pomegranate seeds. Alternatively, you could also opt for a mixture of fresh cream and crushed rose petals. Prepare either of these natural lip balms and store a week-long batch in your refrigerator. Gently massage and leave this intensively moisturizing balm on your lips overnight. The wondrous effects of giving this royal treatment to your lips will be evident in just a month!


Give your lips the natural brightening treatment

A great way to reduce any darkness on your lips is to apply a bit of cucumber juice. Simply slice a cucumber, rubbing it against your lips to allow the juices to soak on. If you do this for five minutes each day, you can lighten dark lips to a beautiful pink color.


Brace your lips against harmful radiation

For all those who go out in the sun very frequently, your lip balm needs to have a minimum of SPF 20. Also, the effervescent glow of your lips can be largely attributed to how well-hydrated they are. So drinking plenty of water is another important parameter that is required to attain the perfect pair of pink lips.
