Once you accept responsibility for any problems that you simply experience, solving those problems becomes surprisingly less stressful.
The more I continuously looked within the mirror to see my horrendous lips and stressed about its condition despite doing whatever it took to enhance them, the more it seemed they started becoming darker and unhealthy. However, once I finally abandoning of that obsession and tried to twiddling my thumbs and constant in my lip care routine, I started seeing results.
Gave up biting and licking my lips
Half of my improvement came from trying very hard to not lick and bite my lips. It took a short time, but I got obviate the habit forever, and that I feel my lips thanking me for it.
Stopped using the famous lemon remedy for dark lips
Using lemon slice honestly delayed my lip transformation. It also made my lips burn, chap, and caused my lips to peel off tons.
Applied glycerin religiously
Glycerin was the weapon that tamed my moisture-deprived lips. I applied and reapplied it all throughout the day, or whenever I felt a touch of dryness on my lips. Glycerin made them healthy and smooth. I did it for nearly one month.
The Game changer – I applied Laneige lip sleeping mask regularly
I usually don’t use external products on my skin unless recommended by the dermatologist and instead prefer cheap home remedies. But my close friend recommended this to me as she had seen my predicament. She said that this product was all the hype within the market because it’s a Korean product. I used to be sold on the ‘Korean’ part. I got the very tiny 8gm bottle ( I had to offer up purchasing a dress for it, but it had been worth it).
While glycerin managed to smoothen and moisturize my lips, this product was the one who was the main thing about removing the stubborn dark layers off them (the layers were the dead skin which was a sign of bad health for me). And it did it with none pain. I applied it at nighttime and in the morning wiped it with a soft cloth. I could see a touch a little bit of dead skin exfoliated with the material. I even have been using it for two months now and that I haven’t regretted purchasing it even once.
Now, so as to take care of my lip color, I either apply petrolatum during the day or Nivea ointment (only while going out) and in fact the Laneige mask in the dark. It also can be used as an ointment within the day. The Baby Lips lip balm didn’t suit my lips so I ended using it.
The above steps have tremendously helped me to revive my lips. I hope that the above steps also assist you to enhance your lips like they helped mine. Just remember, only consistency will show you results, not random applications of the above steps for a couple of days.
I might also wish to add that if you’ve got dark/pink lips or the other colour, size, shape, it doesn’t mean they’re better or worse than normal. As long as you maintain your health, whatever natural lip color you’ve got is that the best. I went through this journey to urge my natural lip color back, not change them to something they never were. I hope everyone understands that!
I bought the Lip mask from Nykaa. You even get another Laniege products to undertake on the skin for free of charge in tiny sachets 🙂
For glycerin, I used normal drug store glycerin that says refined, pure glycerin. you’ll find it at any nearby chemist.
CAUTION: If you’re battling any skin issues, I might recommend first consulting your doctor before using any of the products mentioned above. For safety, doing a skin test is very recommended to avoid any damage to the lips or other areas of the body. The above steps helped me to revive my lips.
