Treating dark lips at Home
BY: The News Voice
Lip color can differ from person to person. No shade of skin on lips is considered healthier than the other. Change in color means more care but rarely a concern.
Smoking, stress, medication and some medical issues might cause the lips to get darker.
A pigment called melanin is the reason for the color of our lips. Less melanin is lighter lips and high melanin, darker lips.
If skin produces more melanin than usual, it can lead to hyperpigmentation. It can happen anywhere including lips. A common example is age spots.
Gently exfoliate lips to remove dead cells using honey and sugar mixture once a week.
Use good quality almond or coconut oil to massage your lips as it helps moisturize them and boost blood circulation.
Using lip balm can help lips stay moisturized and healthy. You can make a lip balm at home with easily acquirable ingredients.
Drinking enough liquids is the best ways to look after skin. Lips are the first areas where they start to look dry and parched.
Lemon is a long term remedy for lightening skin. Hold a lemon slice to your lips for no longer than a minute and rinse with warm water.
