Dry and dark lips can be quite a problem. If it is not the dry air or bitter cold causing your lips to flake and cracks, your cosmetic products or the harsh effects of the sun are drying out your lips. While lip balms can undoubtedly help, there are also various home remedies you can turn to for relief. Here are some verified natural remedies to help soothe dry and dark lips.


Olive Oil

If your lips are cracked, mix olive oil with petroleum jelly and apply it to them. Using this paste on the lips every day can soothe your cracked lips.



Grind rose petals, mix some glycerin and apply this solution to your lips daily for softer lips.


Cocoa Butter

1. Take two tablespoons of cocoa butter and half a teaspoon of honey wax. 2. Place the wax in a jar over boiling water and liquefy it, now add cocoa butter. 3. After cooling the mixture, apply it to the lips with the help of a brush. This will make the lips soft.



Blisters can occur due to the formation of a crust on the lips. To get rid of this: 1. Take a teaspoon of henna root, about 60 grams of almond oil, and 15 grams of seed wax. 2. Crush the henna roots and soak them in almond oil for ten days. 3. After this, filter the oil well and melt it by placing it in hot water. 4.
