Apart from pretty much burning your lungs, smoking also makes your lips turn darker over time. Here are 10 homemade remedies that can help you get rid of smoker’s lips.
Some crave that mid-work smoke break slash gossip session the moment things start to get a little dull at work? We’re not going to lecture you about smoking, but let’s talk about one serious beauty problem that it causes: dark, pigmented lips. Over time, nicotine stains your lips and turns them black, which, to be honest, isn’t a flattering look on anyone. The good news is that you can get rid of your smoker’s lips with these easy home remedies:
Use lime, honey, and glycerine:
- Mix lime juice, honey, and glycerine together until you get a semi-thick paste.
- Apply this to your lips every day.
- This mixture will help with lightening your lips and also keeping the skin soft.
Use lemon juice
- By applying lemon juice to your lips every day, you can ensure that over time, they start to lighten again.
- For this smoker’s lip remedy, you don’t really need to use any other ingredients.
Use almond milk or almond oil
- Applying almond milk or almond oil regularly on your lips can also help lighten them. However, this can take a few weeks.
Make a balm with beetroot
- Making a lip balm for smoker’s lips can also help lighten them. One of the best ways to do this is to make a balm with beetroot.
- All you need to do is grate some beetroot and mix with milk cream and lime.
- You can apply the paste to your lips and let it sit there for at least 15 minutes.
Use a turmeric and lemon pack
- Turmeric has a lot of healing properties for skin and one of them is to lighten the tone. This, when combined with the lightening properties of lemon, makes a highly effective pack.
- Mix turmeric powder with lemon and apply the paste to your lips.
- Let it sit for 15 minutes until it dries.
Use a pomegranate pack
- Pomegranate seeds and the colour of the juice are great for making your lips look pinker and plumper.
- Grind a few of these seeds and mix it with malai.

- Exfoliating your lips can help you lighten them. All you have to do is make an exfoliator with crushed sugar and lemon juice and rub it on with a cotton.
