  • Smoking results in dark lips that can be easily noticed. You must follow some tips to regain the beauty of your lips.

    1. Smoking is a case of addiction and habit. You must reduce smoking if you find unable to stop it.
    2. A minimum of 8 glasses of water must be drunk daily to remove the toxins from the body.
    3. A regular application of lip balm will moisten the lips.
    4. Butter application at night also helps to moisten the lips.  
    5. Applying lemon juice, once a week, lightens the shade of the lips as it carries bleaching property.
    6. Vitamin C and E rich diet is apt for renewing the tissue that was damaged owing to smoking.
    7. Eating strawberry is also a good remedy for chain smokers as it helps to lighten the shade of the lips.
    8. Honey - a natural moisturizer- also proves beneficial. Honey can be mixed with baking soda - a natural bleaching agent – and the mixture must be applied to exfoliate the lips. It must be done once every 7-10 days.
    9. Use lip gloss for lightening dark lips.
    10. Your lip balm must always include an SPF.    For more info,visit http://www.identalhub.com/dental-dental-care-for-smokers-772.aspx
