Beetroot's stain is the best natural way in lightening your lips and it will leave you with those naturally pink-looking lips. All you need for this is some beetroot juice, 3-4 mint leaves and a few drops of almond oil. Cut the beetroot into small pieces and blend them well. Strain the juice.

Apple cider vinegar acts as a natural lightening agent and also will help in removing the pigmentation on your lips. Dilute a few drops of apple cider vinegar in water.

Do not use this as an overnight application, as it contains acid, which might damage the skin.

Baking soda acts as an exfoliator and helps in removing the dead cells. This will help you to reduce the pigmentation and will lighten your dark lips. Add some water to 1 teaspoon of baking soda to form a paste. Apply this paste on your lips and gently scrub it in a circular motion. Leave it on for 5 minutes and wash it off in normal water. Use this every alternate day.

It helps in brightening the colour of your lips, as it circulates blood flow. All you need to do for this is to apply cold rose water on your lips with the help of a cotton ball. Repeat this 2-3 times and go to bed. Wash it off the next morning.
