We all grew up listening to our Dadi Maa Ke Nuske for skin care and hair care! Follow these home remedies and lip care tips and become kiss ready!

1. Do It the H2O Way!


How often do you forget to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water in a day? Everyday! Right? A habit each one of us must break if we ever want a chance at having soft pink lips! You must drink an adequate amount of water before you can try making your lips wondrous from the outside! Gradually increase your water intake to 8-10 glasses per day. You must avoid drinking too much tea and coffee, basically anything that has excess caffeine.

2. DIY Honey & Sugar Exfoliator

Your lips, too, have dead cells which makes them appear dull and cracked! Gently massage and exfoliate your lips with this scrub to get rid of dead skin.

Step by Step Process:

  • Microwave a spoonful of honey
  • Stir in a little natural oil
  • Add a spoonful of sugar
  • Mix the two well in a clean container

  • Leave on for up to two minutes

Aloe Vera has natural anti-inflammatory properties that help to soothe your skin and relieve stinging sensations which thus gives your lips a very supple and smooth texture.

Step by Step Process:

  • Cut a fresh Aloe Vera leaf
  • Cut it diagonally so you have two open stems
  • Use a spoon to separate the gel from the leaf stalk
  • Apply the gel on your lips
  • Rinse off with lukewarm water in 20 minutes

5. DIY Turmeric & Milk Paste

Always wanted blush pink lips? Well, this is how you can get closer to that dream of yours. Turmeric paste not only does wonder to the skin (no wonder we use it to brighten the bride’s glow on Haldi ceremony) but it also helps in lightening the texture and colour of your lips. The lactic acid will lighten the pigmented, and dry lips, while the turmeric will help keep your lips healthy.

Step by Step Process:

  • Take a spoon of turmeric powder in a bowl
  • Add a few spoons of milk
  • Mix the two well till you get a thick paste
  • Apply this paste on your lips and slightly massage using a toothbrush
  • Let sit for 5 minutes before you rinse it off using lukewarm water
  • Pat, it dry and apply a thin layer of lip balm to contain the properties of this mixture in place
  • Repeat twice every week and follow this leading up to your wedding day

6. Massage with Almond Oil
