Your smile greatly contributes to your sense of self-esteem, and supple, pink lips add to the beauty of your smile. It is easy and inexpensive to add to the pink colouring of your lips following simple tips that will make your lips softer. And, making your own all-natural treatments at home allow you to avoid the chemicals in retail lip treatments.

Treatments for Pink Lips

Create a mixture of equal parts of tomato paste and double cream, and apply to lips daily to add pink colour to lacklustre lips. The red colouring of tomatoes will be transferred to the skin of your lips. Maintain the pink glow of your lips by mixing red rose petals and double cream and applying this colouring to your lips. You also can apply beet root juice to naturally add pink pigmentation to your lips. Or, apply natural lemon juice to dark lips to lighten them.

Treatments for Soft Lips

Start by exfoliating your lips daily by combining equal parts of olive oil and sugar and applying the mixture to your lips, rubbing in a circular motion. You can further exfoliate dead skin, revealing soft, smooth lips by gently rubbing your toothbrush over your lips every time you brush your teeth.

Homemade Lip Balm

Making a simple homemade lip balm with a pink tint is easy. Mix 1 tablespoon shortening with 1 teaspoon pink- or red-coloured, unsweetened soft drink mix for a flavourful pink lip balm. Create another homemade lip balm recipe by mixing equal parts of cranberry juice--for pink colour--with vaseline--for moisture. Store your homemade lip balm in a jar with an airtight lid.

Avoid Negative Habits

Smoking reduces the rich, pink colour of the lips. Also, overexposure to sun can lead to sunburn of the lips, so make sure to apply a lip covering with SPF prior to spending time in the sun. Dehydration also reduces the healthy colouring of your lips, so drink at least eight 236ml.-glasses of water every day for soft, supple lips.
