Causes of Dark Lips
Lip products in general can cause your lips to darken – whether it is due to expired products or using products from untrustworthy companies. Sometimes, having excessive caffeine and hot drinks is just as bad. Caffeine does not only stain your teeth, but also your lips. Dehydration also contributes to the cause of dark lips. Make sure to drink enough water and keep your lips hydrated b applying lip balm. Using lip balms with SPF is a plus, since the sun is another cause. Just like any other part of your skin, you have to protect your lips from the sun!
Ways to Lighten Your Lips
Just like your skin, dead cells have to be exfoliated. This can be done daily and easily using baby tooth brush. Exfoliate every morning then apply petroleum jelly to moisturise your lips.
Lip massaging can also help. With few drops of almond oil, massage your lips before going to bed. Almond oil will renew dead cells as well as keeping your lips moisturised.
