DIY – Lip Lightening Scrub


Hi beautiful ladies.

Today I am going to introduce to you a scrub for lips which will help in lightening your lips which have darkened over time because of various factors. This scrub will help you to get your colour back and it will maintain the smoothness and reduces lines as well. People with genetically dark lips may not get benefited much but even for you it will make your lips look pinker and improves blood circulation very well.

Things you will need:

  1. Cinnamon
  2. Olive oil
  3. Pure honey
  4. Sugar
  5. Lemon

Now for the procedure:

  • Roast cinnamon pieces on a tava. Grind them into a fine powder.

  • Add olive oil, honey, and half a lemon into the powder.
  • Now add sufficient sugar to make it a scrub. Here I added sugar from patanjali and that’s why it looks brownish here.
  •  You can add any food flavour or any essential oil of your choice if you don’t like cinnamon flavour.

You are done.

I used this scrub every alternate day and followed with applying ghee over night on my lips. Every scrubbing, my lips became noticeably pinker, less pigmented and smoother with fewer lines. It even reduced my pigmentation around my lips a bit. Yay

  1. Cinnamon is a very good blood stimulator. It made my lips plumper actually a bit and the effect stayed for like 4 hours. It also has cooling effects so it will help as an anti inflammatory ingredient.
  2. Honey will remove dullness, spots and moisturise your lips.
  3. Olive oil is rich in vitamin e and will help protect your lips and also rejuvenate them.
  4. Lemon is natural bleach and will help removing tan and dead upper layer of your lips.
  5. Ghee has the most amounts of lactic protein and vitamin a in milk products. Both are very essential for your skin.
  6. Sugar is an excellent and gentle scrub. The glucose in it is also a good tan remover. Even rice powder can be used here ladies. The patanjali one here is mineral sugar which has even more benefits than your normal white one. Do try it.

This lip scrub can be stored in refrigerator for 2 weeks. Make sure no water comes in contact though. The amount shown here comes even longer.

I hope you have good results with this one ladies. Please try and let me know if you have any other ideas 🙂 also for doubts…. comment !!!!!!!!!!!!!
