Whether you’re just tired of reapplying your pink lipstick throughout the day or you’re trying to restore your natural pink lip hue after drinking coffee, nature has various ways for you to get and maintain a natural pink shade of lips. With little effort and big results, you’ll find your lips pretty in pink in no time.
Things You'll Need
Rub lemon juice onto your lips before bedtime to lighten your lips if you think they are too dark from drinking coffee, for instance. After applying lemon juice, wait until lips are dry and then moisturize your lips, as lemon juice can dry them out. Do this once a week.
Keep your lips moisturized, as healthy lips tend to be pinker and better-looking. Use a Chap Stick made of natural ingredients only, such as honey and beeswax. Apply before going to bed, so that your lips will stay moisturized overnight. Also wear this Chap Stick throughout the day, every day.
Use the age-old method of pinching your lips for a last-minute quick pink tint. This is the same method used with the cheeks for a quick “blush.” Lightly pinch your lips with the pads of your fingers, not your nails, for a pink hue that will last about 10 minutes. This will only work in a case where you want to impress on-the-spot; it’s not meant for long-lasting pinkness.
Rub beetroot juice on your lips prior to going to bed for a natural dye effect. Cut a piece of the beetroot and rub it on your lips for about five minutes. Be careful not to get the juice around your lip or on your chin area. Wash your hands thoroughly. Do this about three times a week, alternating between this and Step 5.
Grind some red rose petals into a cup until a visible liquid can be seen. Use this liquid as a natural dye on your lips before going to bed–on a different day than the beet root juice. Carefully rub the ground rose petals on your lips without getting anything around your lip or on your chin. Wash your hands thoroughly. Do this about three times a week, alternating between this and Step 4.
Maintain your pink lips by exfoliating them with a soft-bristle toothbrush once or twice a week before applying other items before bedtime. Rub the brush gently on your lips to remove dead skin and stains from coffee or tea. Create a weekly routine with Step 1 one day and repeating Steps 4 and 5 throughout the week on different days.
