If you are embarrassed with your dark lips and often conceal them using lipstick, it is time to try something natural that will help lighten them. Darkening of the lips may occur due to various reasons such as smoking, licking them too often, or when they turn too dry, but beetroot can help get back your lip's pink naturally.

To make this paste, finely grate beetroot and then add a few drops of milk cream (malai) to it. The beetroot lends it pink colour while cream moisturises your lips. Now apply it gently on them and then leave it to dry for 15-20 minutes. Then wash the area with water. Do this regularly and see a visible difference in the colour of your lips. Apart from this, refrain from licking them and avoid smoking too.
