To naturally lighten dark lips, apply a lemon juice and honey mixture to your lips twice a day for least a month. There are many methods to naturally lighten dark lips, but this method is the simplest and most efficient.
- Prepare the honey and lemon juice mixture
Mix 8 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 4 tablespoons of honey to create the lightening solution. Lemon is known for its bleaching properties and acidity. Applying lemon juice can safely exfoliate the top layer of lip skin, ultimately revealing a lighter skin color. Honey acts as another lightening agent for your lips and also softens them in the process. This mixture creates enough for two uses.
- Apply half of the mixture to your lips
Using your fingers, evenly distribute half of the mixture on your lips.
- Massage your lips
For at least five minutes, gently massage the mixture to help absorption. Leave the mixture on for an hour after massaging.
- Wipe off the mixture
Wet a soft, clean cloth and use it to wipe the mixture off your lips.
- Apply the mixture before bedtime
Ideally, the process should be done twice a day to effectively lighten pigmentation. Apply the leftover mixture to your lips, and massage for at least five minutes. Leave the mixture on overnight. The entire process should be repeated on a daily basis for at least a month.
