I have found lately that the color of my lips has started to fade a little. I always love seeing pretty pink lips — they make you look healthy and glowing. I have a tendency to bite on my lips to make the color come out more. I don’t like to wear lipstick, so this seemed like the best practice for me — but it only lasts for a short period of time and then it goes.
I came across these two little tricks that you can do on a regular basis to make your lip color come out more and I have noticed the difference. One is to rub lemon juice onto your lips before bedtime to bring out their natural color. After you have applied the lemon juice wait for them to dry and then moisturize them. Do this just once a week as lemon juice can dry your lips out.
Another is beetroot juice. By rubbing beetroot juice on your lips before going to bed you start to create a natural lip stain effect. You can either buy a jar of beetroots and place a small sponge inside to soak up the juice or cut a piece of beetroot and rub it on your lips — but this can be a little messy. Do this for 5 minutes and wash your hands afterwards. D0 this about three times a week and see if you can tell the difference!
