How to avoid lip darkness and I have a dark skin?

A dark skin is usually inherited and if the other members of your family are dark, it is more than likely that you will have dark skin too. However, you can try out various easy home remedies to help your skin colour lighten.

For dark lips you should use lemon juice. Lemon juice is known to have bleaching properties and is recommended to reduce the darkness of lips. You can use freshly squeezed lemon juice on your lips and leave it on overnight for an effective result. This remedy can also be used on your face. A mixture of milk cream and a pinch of turmeric is also effective in helping your skin look fairer. However, you should ensure that you follow these remedies on a regular basis over a period of time. A mixture of oatmeal and honey can also be used on the face. This mixture should be allowed to remain on the face for some time for it to be really effective before it is washed off.

Your diet should include fruits like papaya, apples, bananas, fruit juices and vegetables. This will keep your skin glowing with health. Keeping away from food that includes oil, sugar and white flour will keep your skin healthy.
