Get Red Lips Naturally
Honey with lemon
The mixture of honey and Lemon is a perfect combination of bleach and moisturiser. Lemon acts as a bleaching agent and sugar helps to keep your lips moist. For this, cut thin slices of lemon and then dip them into a jar of honey, or pour some honey on them. Scrub your lips with this honey-lemon slice for about 20 minutes. Do this twice a day to see better results within three weeks!
You can also make a decent lip pack if you don’t want to use the lemon and honey scrub. Take equal amounts of honey and lemon juice and mix them well. Now, apply this pack on your lips. Leave it for half an hour each day. You can see results in a few weeks or so.
Honey, sugar and olive oil
The first step to get red lips is getting your lips moisturised, and also, getting rid of all flaky skin which causes a dry layer on your lips, hiding your natural colour. If you remove this layer of dead skin, you’ll regain your lip’s natural colour. And you can keep your lip skin young always, by making a scrub pack which is a great red lips remedy.
For this, take equal portions of Honey and brown sugar in a sufficient amount. Now, add few drops of olive oil in this honey and brown sugar mixture. Apply this scrub on your lips and scrub it for 15 minutes in a circular motion all over the lips. Rinse it with water and pat dry your lips with a soft towel. You can repeat this process for 2 – 5 times a day for fast results.
No, don’t apply milk to your lips. Rather drink a glass of milk twice a day and keep your skin nutrient-rich. Milk is a rich source of Lactic acid, and Lactic acid is considered to be the best for lightening your skin tone. Be it your facial skin or the skin of your lips; lactic acid is very beneficial for both.
Natural remedies are better than the chemical treatments as they don’t spoil the natural or the original condition of your skin. Besides the whitening effect, milk can also contribute to the elimination of the dead skin cells which are a common cause for dark lips.

Seeds of pomegranate, are also one among them. They can also be used to lighten the dark colour of your lips and lending it a lovely red colour. Pomegranate as a fruit in itself has extensive health benefits. You can easily prepare the juice out it and drink it regularly. But what about the seed?

The toothbrush thing
Apply a thick layer of lip balm (it recommended to use natural ones) on your lips at night. When you wake up, you would see that your lips have absorbed the balm.

A damp cloth can also be used. Remember to be gentle while doing the process or else you’ll end up ripping off your lips.
