The frosty weather, the chilly winds, the cold and dry feeling during the bitter months of winter isn’t something that is unknown to us. With heavy woollens, jackets, long coats, high necks, shawls, etc. that become a part of the wardrobe during the cold winter months, we always are on the lookout to create a statement look for the season. Why not do so by flaunting beautiful lips in stunning shades of distinctive colours? Chapped, flaky, patchy lips can never look beautiful no matter how expensive a lip shade you opt for. So, learn to get naturally pink and soft lips this winter as you wear that perfect lip colour or flaunt your luscious lips this season. Here are some of the easiest home remedies that you can try out this year and say goodbye to dark lips in a jiffy:
- Lemon: Lemon is known for its natural bleaching properties that helps lighten dark lips effectively. Treat your lips to a rejuvenating feel of the lemon along with honey this winter and watch out the magnificent results that it yields. Mix one and a half teaspoons of lemon juice with a teaspoon of glycerine. Apply this mixture on the lips everyday to get rid off dark lips in winter and also to keep your lips hydrated during the season.
- Olive Oil: Applying natural olive oil on the lips everyday during winters can get you naturally pink lips that are soft and supple. Olive oil helps keep the lips hydrated as well during the bitter cold and this helps to prevent the lips from getting dry and chapped. It is best to apply the oil during bedtime.
- Pomegranate Juice: Not all of us seem to be aware that pomegranate juice can work as a great agent for treating skin hyperpigmentation. Therefore, pomegranate juice can help lighten dark lips naturally. Mix one teaspoon of pomegranate juice and 1 teaspoon of rose water. Apply this mixture on the lips and leave for 4-5 minutes. Wash it off with clean water. Repeat daily for best results.
- Strawberry: Yes, applying a paste of strawberries can help lighten dark lips in winter. Crush 4-5 strawberries and mix it with some baking soda. Apply this mixture on the lips and leave it for some time. Wash it off after 15-20 minutes. Repeat it on an everyday basis to get instant results. Aloe Vera Gel: Natural Aloe Vera gel has always been considered a beauty secret since the time of Cleopatra. Gently scoop out the gel from the Aloe Vera leaves or you can also purchase a pack of natural Aloe Vera gel that is free from chemical components. Apply a layer of Aloe Vera on the lips every day. This helps remove the appearance of marks, spots, dark patches and in addition, works as a brilliant lip moisturizer for the bitter months of cold.
