So, welcome fruits in your regular lip care routine.

  • Guest

    Interesting, it seems from this article having dark lips is portrayed as a problem. What happens if your lips are naturally dark, should you then bleach or cut them?

    • SaneDonna

      Dark lips are not attractive, even without the beauty industry telling us what is attractive and what’s not. Overly pale lips are not attractive either. Watched a science show once, and it showed that when we see rosey pink lips, we think “healthy.” They think it’s because pink indicates blood flow, which indicates good health. It’s a primitive reaction, but hey, humans react positive to seeing it. So like this article says, pink-ish is the best look. I stain mine with beets sometimes, because I always have iron poor blood, and my lips are too pale. If you don’t care what your lips look like, relax. It’s sad to see how many people liked what you said, because it means you slanted this article in a bad way, suggesting a hidden agenda, and everyone knows it wasn’t meant this way.

  • Local Supplier

    What’s wrong with local brands? Round Rock Honey makes amazing lip balm. All natural and organic. It’s not cheap and doesn’t turn my lips black.

    u can also use butter or malai or aloe vera to get soft and supper lips ……………. article is quite informative

    • Richa

      You can also apply Malai and Aloe veera on your lips. Rubbing lips for about 15 minutes thrice a week helps soften and moisturize the lips. Also, beets contain a natural red stain which helps in redden your lips instantly. Do try to make your lips rosy.

    Often indian women are born with brown toned lips that dull out their overall skin tone, so this article is more for women with medium-dark skin. And by lightening they really mean getting them to be more pink or red toned than brown toned. :)

  • Hannah Blessing

    If you do not want to tan, use a lip balm that contains SPF. Also, your lips are probably fine whatever color they are. Check with your doctor if you are concerned about their color. Before today, I have never even heard of this problem. So I think it isn’t one! It is one of those things that is a vanity thing, like how some women have to wear make-up all the time. But do you really need to? No. But make-up can protect you from the sun, especially if you use a sun protective lotion under the make-up. Lips are beautiful, whatever color they are!

  • Hannah Blessing

    Have your iron levels checked by your doctor. You may be anemic, is why your lips are pale. You need iron in your blood to have the lips that you want.
