    Hi Lailakhan,

    hope this helps
    [FONT=times new roman,times]1) Dark Lips:[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times] You will be surprised to know that our lips unlike most part of our body do not have any melanin pigment to protect them. Lips are covered on the outside by a thin layer of skin and on the inside by virtually transparent mucous membranes. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]Therefore it is necessary to take care of our lips and to eat well-balanced food and lots of fruits. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]If you have dark lips you have to do the following………[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]*Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]* Stop smoking.[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]* Avoid lipstick.[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]* Apply a layer of oil and leave it on for several hours. Best apply before going to bed[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]* Mix coconut oil and almond oil in equal quantity. Apply a coat of this on the lips and leave on overnight. This has to be done daily for at least two weeks for best results.[/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times]* Massage lips: Every night with a mixture of 1/2 tsp. Glycerine and 1/2 tsp. Castor oil with 1/2 tsp. Lemon juice and leave overnight. [/FONT]
    [FONT=times new roman,times] *Apply cream from curds with saffron on your lips[/FONT]


    regards
    Kalpana.

    dark lips can be due to anemia.Go to doctor and get ur HB checked.I am having a home remedy for it but don't forget to check ur HB.Mix milk(unboiled) with a pinch of salt,rub it on lips with cotton,you will see the difference.you can exfoliate ur lips with ur brush while brushing ur teeth.

    use chapstick with an acceptable spf..avoid excess exposure to sun, lip biting, etc. also i've heard that rubbing beetroot juice helps improve lip color. i've never tried this though

    Found some useful tips from the internet for getting rid of dark lips (It seems to be working fine for me !)

    In the morning apply a layer of vaselin to you lips and brush your lips with an old tooth bursh for say for 10-20 seconds..(I normally do this routine soon after brushing my teeth) . If this is done on a daily basis , it will remove the dry lip skin and gradullay your lips will regain pink color . Remember to apply another layer of vaseline after washing you lips to keep it moisturized for the rest of the day !.
    Also drink lots of water .. Hope this helps
