Cucumber works as a skin-lightening agent that will help make your lips, as well as your skin, a lighter shade. Simply rub a slice of cucumber against your lips gently so that your lips absorb the juice. Do this for five minutes each day.
Berries like raspberries and strawberries contain vital minerals and vitamins that are highly essential for keeping your lips healthy and vibrant. Both raspberries and strawberries also can turn dark lips into rosy pink lips.
- Mix one-half tablespoon of raspberry juice with a little aloe vera gel and honey. Apply the paste on your lips and scrub gently. Leave it on for 10 minutes and then rinse it off with lukewarm water. Do this three or four times a week.
- Mix one tablespoon of strawberry juice with two tablespoons of petroleum jelly. Use this mixture as lip balm twice daily.
