A beautiful, healthy smile isn’t all about your teeth; it’s about your lips too.
Pink lips are beautiful aesthetics both for men and women. Pink lips are more adorable to all whether you are a child, teenager, man, woman, or adult. Everybody likes soft red lips.
While your lips can darken because of everything from low blood circulation and stress to excessive smoking, and the effects are not irreversible. Also, bear in mind that without appropriate and consistent lip care, your lips won’t stay pink.
Lip’s natural color may be dark or pink; it generally depends on your skin color. Besides, many men (who have reddish lips) are not careful of their lips. They smoke, take lots of caffeine (more than 3 cups a day), randomly move in the sun, and probably don’t use any lip balm.
Scrub the lip skin with a mixture of one teaspoon each of almond oil and honey and two teaspoons of sugar. Scrub gently as the skin on your lips is quite sensitive. The almond oil and honey will give your lips moisture even as the sugar removes the dead skin. Regular usage of this scrub can give you pink lips permanently.
2. Exfoliate Regularly
All you need to do is wet a napkin or a toothbrush and gently rub your lips with it in gentle movements. This removes dead skin and the dry outer layer of the lips, while also improving blood circulation. At night, always apply coconut oil or a natural lip balm for soft pink lips.
A study found that 37% of people who use sunscreen the right way also use it to protect their lips. Opt for a lip balm that has SPF 15 or more. It needs to be applied daily and refreshed frequently. This prevents damage from the sun’s rays.
4. Moisturize Regularly
Keeping your lips moist at all times is a sure shot way to ensure they remain pink. Use aloe vera gel directly from the plant or buy a pure bottled version to soothe and hydrate dry lips.
5. Hydrate Internally
Drinking more water to stay hydrated will prevent dry and chapped skin. It will also keep your lips looking plump and moist, while also keeping discoloration of lips at bay.
Cut a thin slice of lemon and sprinkle some sugar on it. Now, rub that sugary slice on your lips and soon enough, your lips will begin to lighten. How? Well, lemon is an excellent and natural bleaching agent while the sugar, in this case, helps to exfoliate all the dead skin cells.
7. Berry mixture soften your lips
A paste made using raspberries, aloe vera juice, and organic honey helps to make your lips pink. Once you’ve applied this paste on your lips just let it sit for about five minutes before you wash it off. Raspberries work best because of how rich they are in vital vitamins and minerals, which make your lips pink and soft too.
8. Turmeric powder and milk gives your lips a healthy shine
This combination is good for overall skin health, and your lips are no exception. Make a paste by mixing both these ingredients and leave it on till it dries. Then wash it off and you will start seeing the difference.
9. Beetroot Juice
Beetroot is a nice natural skin lightener as it belongs to vitamin C and other antioxidants. You can rub a slice of beetroot onto the lips gently for several minutes. It will add a rosy color to the lips. Or you can rub your lips with beetroot juice using your fingers or cotton ball. Wait some minutes and then cleanse off the lips and notice pink plumper lips.
10. Pomegranate Juice and Milk
Mix two teaspoons of pomegranate juice with one teaspoon of lemon juice. Leave this mixture on the lips for 8-10 minutes and then wash your lips off with cold water. It will add a reddish color to the lips.
The above lip care tips help in giving you pink lips, but if you smoke, kicking the butt will help your lips to continue to remain pink!
Are Pink Lips Healthy?
Yes. If your lips are pink, it means that your body and mind are in balance and you are in the ‘pink’ of health. It also implies that the diet you are following and your fitness routine is right for your body and age.
Why Do Lips Turn So Pink All Of A Sudden?
The layer of the skin that is waterproof is known as the stratum corneum. It is very thin on the lips. Hence, the blood vessels, which are present in larger numbers within the lips, are more visible. This makes your lips look pink.
The skin on the lips has a minimum of three and a maximum of five layers of cells, while the skin elsewhere on your body has more than five layers. The tissue of the lips is, therefore, thinner and the color from the blood vessels is visible in the lips.
If your lips change color suddenly and appear more pink than usual, it could imply that there is an allergy or an infection. Usually, lips go pale, or dark depending on the underlying cause.
If you are light-skinned, your lips too will be lighter than normal. The blood vessels will be more visible in this case.
