Nov 09, 2022Plabon Bhuiya

Ever wondered why some people boast naturally pink lips while others struggle with darker tones? While genetics play a significant role, external factors like sun exposure, dehydration, and lifestyle habits can cause lips to lose their natural pinkness. Just like skin tone differs from person to person, melanin is also responsible for lip skin complexion and colour. Now, some people have a low percentage of melanin in their bodies and some have a high percentage in their bodies. 

Although lip trends keep changing with time the one thing that is common and still popular is pink lips. Today, people spend a lot of money to change their lip colour. You might have heard about semi-permanent lips. The treatment boosts your natural lip colour so you don’t have to apply chapstick or lip gloss. But the treatment has so many drawbacks, one it is expensive and second, it is painful.

Being a natural skincare brand we always recommend natural ingredients for every skincare problem and issue. Achieving rosy lips doesn't have to involve expensive treatments or painful procedures. In this article, we'll explore natural remedies and ingredients to help you unlock the secret to naturally pink lips.

What Causes Lips to Darken or Lose Pinkness?

Before diving into remedies, and sharing the top natural advice and tips to get pink lips, it's essential to understand what causes lips to darken or lose their pink hue. Factors like smoking, consumption of caffeine, sun exposure, dehydration, certain medications like antibiotics, low blood sugar, vitamin deficiency and medical conditions can contribute to lip discoloration. Even everyday habits like licking your lips excessively, wearing cosmetics or not removing lipstick at night can impact lip colour. By addressing these underlying causes, you can take proactive steps towards achieving naturally pink lips.

How to Get Pink Lips Naturally at Home?

Exfoliate - Regular exfoliation is key to removing dead skin cells and revealing softer, smoother lips.  Use gentle organic homemade scrubs for exfoliation using ingredients like sugar or salt and mixed with honey, coconut, or almond oil for exfoliating the lip. Gently rub the scrub and wash it with warm water. These two scrubs and natural exfoliants are very effective and will remove the dry and dull rough-like appearance from the lips, leaving them looking refreshed and revitalised.

But always remember one thing: gently apply the scrub on your lips and never rub it. Never use scrubs that are designed for the hands or body because lip skin is more sensitive than the hands and body. Apply these lip scrubs twice a week and you will see a clear difference in your lips.

Use Aloe Vera on lips - Aloe Vera is renowned for its soothing and healing properties, making it an excellent choice for lip care. Rich in aloesin, a compound known for promoting natural pink lip pigmentation, Aloe Vera gel has anti-inflammatory properties that will keep the lips healthy and moist. You can either apply the gel directly to your lips or incorporate it with other ingredients, skincare products or skincare routine. 

To prepare an Aloe Vera mask for your lips, take a fresh Aloe Vera leaf and extract the gel from it. Make sure you clean the yellow part or liquid before mixing the gel into coconut oil and massage it for 1 to 2 minutes, leave it and then wash it after 5 minutes. You can apply this mask twice a week.

Wear SPF - Don't forget to protect your lips from harmful UV rays, which can cause darkening and damage. Therefore apply lip balms containing SPF to shield your lips from sun exposure while keeping them moisturised and supple, providing lip care. A 100% natural vegan lip balm SPF30, is best.

Our lip balm will protect your lips from harsh weather and temperature. It will give you extra sun protection from the sun and keep your lips moisturised and hydrated all day. Regular application of SPF lip balm, especially when outdoors, can help maintain your lips' natural pinkness, prevent premature ageing and skin cancer.

Use Beetroot Juice or Pomegranate Seeds - Nature's bounty offers potent ingredients like beetroot and pomegranate, known for their natural pigmentation properties. 

Beetroot is a natural vegetable that can be used to get a natural burgundy tint colour. When applied regularly, beetroot juice will give your lips a semi-permanent pink tint and texture for a long time. Take a fresh beetroot and extract its juice. Apply the juice to your lips with the help of your finger and dab it gently on the lips. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then wash it with normal water. 

While pomegranate seeds, which are also a pigmented ingredient, will reduce melanin production, preventing lip darkening. Pomegranate contains a compound called punicalagin which will reduce the production of melanin. Pomegranate also prevents your lips from getting darker. Grind the pomegranate seeds and then mix some milk into them. Apply the mixture on the lips for 15 minutes and then wash it with normal water.

Incorporate these natural remedies into your lip care regimen for visibly pinker lips over time.

Hydrate from Within - Perhaps the simplest yet most effective tip for achieving naturally pink lips is to stay hydrated. Drinking an adequate amount of water throughout the day helps maintain lip health, preventing dryness and promoting a rosy appearance. The more you will keep your lips hydrated the more they will look healthy and moist. Internal hydration not only prevents your lips from dryness and soreness but also plays a great role in preventing your lip's darkness and contributes to overall well-being and vitality.

Embrace Your Natural Beauty

By incorporating these natural ingredients and lifestyle changes into your daily routine such as lip balms, scrubs, or lip masks, you can enhance your lip colour and boost your confidence. Remember to practise patience and consistency, as homemade treatments may take time to show results but they are completely safe to use and have no side effects. Embrace your natural beauty and celebrate your unique lip colour with pride!
