Get pink lips at reduced risk
Written by Arinola Adeniyi

pink lips

You want pink lips? Yes, it is great aesthetics for the face but you have to be careful about how you go about achieving it.

Pink is the original colour of the lips, which most of us had at birth. However with the passage of time and lack of proper care, they often tend to lose their natural tone and slowly turn dark.

The natural pink complexion of lips could sometimes get darkened due to excessive smoking or chewing nicotine-based products and drinking alcoholic beverages. The overuse of cosmetic products may also cause lips to turn dark. Too much of tea and coffee could also make lips turn dark. Prolonged exposure to the harsh rays of the sun may also lead to a similar condition.

To remedy the situation, a tattoo parlour is usually the next port of call where the lips are scraped. First, to get rid of the unwanted skin and thereafter tattooed with pink ink.

Really, beauty is painful. This lip augmentation procedure which offers permanent results has its downsides. Apart from the skin irritation that might occur from the painful process, redness, accompanied by a stinging sensation might also take place as well as inflammation of the lips. If not properly done, you could grow keloids!

There are several simple home remedies to make lips look pinker. Just make sure to remove dirt particles, oil and dead skin cells that accumulate on the lips throughout the day. Also gently wash your lips with some cold water every night before going to bed for this purpose. You may also wipe your lips very gently with a ball of cotton wool soaked in chilled rosewater to make your lips look softer and pinker.

You can use your toothbrush simply to exfoliate the dead skin cells off your lips. But remember to use them gently to avoid hurting your delicate lips. Apply a thin coat of a good lip balm after this. In case your lips are chapped too, then stick to the same remedy, but with the toothbrush coated with Vaseline this time.

For another remedy, mix a teaspoonful of almond oil and lemon juice and apply this mixture on the lips every day. Leave it till it dries and then wash your lips with cold water. You may also add a little powdered sugar on a thin slice of lime and rub your lips with it very gently. This acts as a natural exfoliating and bleaching agent that makes lips look smoother and redder.
