Dark, pigmented, chapped lips are an unpleasant eye view. We regard beautiful soft pink lips as a sign of a healthy lifestyle or a person paying attention to their appearance. Especially when accompanied by bleeding, split lips can be very upsetting. While chapped lips may be an issue, there is also a bright side of it – with a simple treatment, the problem can be easily fixed.
High intake of caffeine, chewing tobacco, using cheap cosmetics or many hours of direct sunlight exposure are just a part of the many factors that can damage the lips or cause a change of color. We are most commonly faced with such a problem in winter, so we can all agree that the cold is a vicious enemy of delicate lips. On the other hand, for many who are intolerant of high temperatures and gamma rays, summer rays can also prove to be a problem.
Not only are expensive products the only solution to this type of problem, as natural home-made medicine can also lead us to the desired result. The time it takes for this treatment to work is not always the same as before you reach your goal, so the instructions are to be used.
Reasons your lips go dark!
Lips may become darker due to factors such as stress and low blood circulation. Although it is not possible to find the actual cause for this, there are many important details to which we have to pay attention. Here we’ve listed some of the most common reasons that usually help your lips change color:
- Excessive use of cosmetics
- Unhealthy lifestyle, daily consumption of too much caffeine and hot drinks
- Not enough red blood cells, anemia
- Vitamin deficiency
- Allergic reactions
People say a smile is the most beautiful thing you can wear. The smile isn’t just about having bright white teeth, though – the lips are also included. Everyone wants soft, pink lips, but it looks like a distant dream for most of us. All we need to do to change that is give our lips some extra care and attention, so we keep them soft and hydrated.
Chapped and pigmented lips causes:
- An unhealthy lifestyle – smoking, stress, bad diet
- Not removing your makeup at night
- Excessive intake of caffeine
- Using cheap quality products
- Using expired lip products
Step 1 – Remove the dark layer from your lips with a simple and homemade lip scrub!
If you ask me, the best thing that can happen to anyone who needs a change for the better is homemade scrubs. Simply take 1 lb of sea salt and 1 lb of coconut oil and mix in a bowl. Dip a cotton bowl into the mixture after that is done and apply it to the lips. Leave it on for a minute and use circular motions to gently massage the lips. Then rinse and pat the lips dry with water. You will quickly get smooth and soft lips.
Step 2 – Use a homemade lip balm 3-4 times a week!
Mix 3/4 honey spoons, 1 olive oil spoon and 1 coconut oil spoon. Store it in a jar with a lid after you make sure it is thoroughly mixed. Whenever you want, you can use the lip balm, particularly if you feel that your lips need some hydration.
Step 3- The best night lip balm
Just take the oil from one capsule of vitamin E and put it on your lips. Let it sit overnight, and in the morning you will notice and see the difference.
When talking about lip care, it is recommended that you do not touch or lick your lips and remove the makeup before going to bed. It is also crucial to take care of your lips during night and day, which means that putting on some heavy moisturizing lip cream to keep your lips from dehydration while you’re sleeping is always a good idea.
A massage with nourishing oils to improve blood circulation is a good way to get started for those who want to take extra special care. It’s another good idea to scrub your lips. This prevents infection and helps keep your lips healthy and soft.
With all of these above, we’ve covered some of the major factors you need to pay attention to, but it’s also important to note that if you don’t take care of your lips properly, you won’t be able to get the pink natural look you want.
