Do you notice that your lips are often the first to get affected due to harsh weather? Conditions like environmental pollution and dehydration result in dry, chapped and pigmented lips. If you’ve always wondered why that happens, here’s your answer – the skin of the lips is the thinnest and the most sensitive. Yes, you read it right. That part of your face that we forget about, requires attention and care. You have to make taking care of your lips a part of your daily skincare regimen.
Makeup is a temporary solution as it can only camouflage, not change your lip colour. Using cheap or bad quality cosmetic products can make your lips permanently dark and further aggravate the problem. One of the easiest ways to get pink lips is to stick to natural home remedies as they are safe and reliable and don’t burn a hole in your pocket.
- Sandalwood powder – two tablespoons
- Rosewater – as required
- Take two tablespoons of Sandalwood powder in a bowl and add rosewater to it gradually until it forms a paste-like consistency.
- Apply this mixture on your lips and leave it for 10 minutes, then rinse with cold water.
For better results, follow this method twice a week. Using this method regularly would result in a permanently pink, moisturized and plump looking lips.
Why it Works:
Sandalwood has anti-inflammatory properties that are good for your skin tan. It helps you lighten the skin tone and reduce pigmentation.
The other ingredient is rose water, it helps in removing the dead skin cells and also provides moisture to our lips.
