Natural ways to get pink lips

Our lips lack sweat glands, therefore, we have to care for them specially. Having full pink lips accentuates your beauty as a woman. 

Dry and dark lips can be caused by the following:

· Bad diet
· Stress
· Smoking
· Excessive caffeine intake
· Anemia
· Failing to remove make-up at night
· Overexposure to the sun

Here are some of the best natural ways to get a pink lip

Lemon and Honey Mask

Lemon is a lightening agent while Honey helps to moisturize the lips. This makes it a great combination.
