Nobody likes to have dark, pigmented, dry or chapped lips, right? But what do we do when we have to deal with it, when we are left with dry and chapped lips or even worse, pigmented lips? At such times, women often resort to various lip creams, lip moisturisers, or lip balms that help to repair and heal dry and chapped lips. Lip balms have the quality to nourish, hydrate, and moisturise lips, making them soft.
While there are several lip balms available in the market that promise to heal dry, chapped or pigmented lips, they might contain some small amounts of chemicals or other ingredients that might not be good or recommended for your lips. What do we do in that case? A simple solution to this would be making a homemade lip balm using all natural ingredients and treat your lips with their goodness.
Speaking of making homemade lip balms, what could be better than using raspberries for your lips that will give you soft, supple, pink, and kissable lips in no time. Raspberries protect your lips from sun damage and thus eliminate the chances of dark lips or pigmentation. They are high in antioxidants and vitamin C. Raspberries also possess anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritation on lips, if any.
Moreover, a raspberry lip balm promises to keep your lips soft and moisturised throughout the day. It exfoliates your lips and makes them supple. You can make a homemade lip balm using raspberries or even make a raspberry lip scrub at home that will help you get rid of dead skin cells on your lips and thus make them soft and kissable.
