Raspberries are packed with essential vitamins and natural rosy color. Mix aloe vera, honey and raspberry in equal proportions to form a thick paste. Apply it on the lips and leave it for about 10-15 mins before rinsing it off with lukewarm water.
- Moisturize with olive oil:
Olive oil is an excellent ingredient for combating pigmentation. All you need to do is take a little oil on your fingers and massage it over your lips during the night and leave it overnight. It will not only hydrate your lips and keep them off from getting flaked but will also help in bringing back the natural color. You can also do the same with coconut oil.
