DIY Beetroot & Sea Salt Scrub for Pigmented Lips

Most of the people in India suffer from pigmentation around their mouth and lip area; especially, pigmented lips. I have lightly pigmented lips as well since as long as I can remember. When I was a kid, everybody in my family used to say that applying lipsticks can cause lip pigmentation. But that is not the cause in my case at least. Because now I actually apply lipsticks on almost a daily basis and my pigmentation hasn’t worsened. It’s the same as it was 5 years ago when I was 18. Obviously, I don’t like it. I’m one hundred percent sure you don’t like pigmented lips as well! So I’ve made a DIY Beetroot & Sea Salt Scrub for Pigmented Lips that will get rid of all the dead skin cells on your lips while mosturising it & fighting the pigmentation as well. It worked for me and I’m sure it’ll work for you as well!

What is Pigmentation?
Pigmentation is a skin condition where patches of your skin darkens. This happens due to excessive production of a hormone called Melanin that gives our skin the dark colour in irregular areas. Pigmentation around the mouth and neck area is most common.
Causes of Pigmentation:
  • Excessive sun exposure.
  • Incorrect hair removal technique.
  • Hormonal changes.
  • Genetic predispostion
  • Allergic reactions.
  • Injuries.
  • Post pregnancy/use of contraceptive pills.
  • Side effects of medicines.
What You’ll Need:
  • Sea Salt– Sea salt, as compared to the salt found in our kitchen, has minerals, calcium, magnesium and several other nutrients. Make sure you grind the Sea salt before using it because the sharp edges of sea salt can harm the soft skin of our lips.
  • Beetroot juice/Beetroot powder Beetroot is a natural lip tint. In ancient times, ladies used to colour their lips with Beetroot. You can extract the juice from Beetroots by simply grinding it and extracting the juice from this paste with a clean muslin or linen cloth. Or buy the Beetroot powder available in market. Whichever’s convenient for you.
  • Sweet Almond Oil Almond oil increases blood flow which causes the dark spots and pigmentation to reduce. It is a really good mosturising agent as well.
  • Vitamin E capsules- Vitamin E oil has crazy mosturising properties! I am obsessed with using it in every single DIY product I make.
  • Cinnamon Essential Oil Cinnamon essential oil helps in giving the lips a little plumpness, which by the way, I love! Who wouldn’t?!DIY Beetroot & Sea Salt Scrub for Pigmented Lips
