Just as the melanocytes are present in skin everywhere so are they present in the lips. Ghee is one of the healthiest forms of fat that you can pamper your lips with. Also known as clarified butter, it is a staple cooking ingredient in most Indian households. Ghee is made from milk, which contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, butyric acid and healthy fats that benefit your overall health.
From aiding the digestive system to strengthening the immune system, providing essential vitamins to having anti-inflammatory properties, and making your hair and skin healthy, ghee has a lot to offer.
Here Are Reasons Why You Must Use Ghee For Beautiful & Healthy Lips
Works As A Moisturizer
Ghee works well on your lips as it seeps into it and moisturises it. This way, it can be a soothing agent on dry lips. If you start using ghee on your lips, you will never need that lip balm.
Cures Chapped Lips
A drop of ghee when rubbed onto dry, chapped lips will lock in moisture. Leave it overnight and wake up to soft, kiss-worthy lips the next morning.
Lightens Dark Lips
If your lips suffer from pigmentation, just massage your pout with ghee and within a few weeks you will get your pretty pink lips again.
You Can Use It As A Lip Balm…
Dry lips need a lip balm. But you can do without it. Rub a few drops of ghee on your lips every evening before bed. Your lips become soft and well-hydrated.
How To Use Ghee On Your Lips:
Take 4 spoons of ghee and heat it up. Once it cools a bit, pour it into a lip balm container and use it as you would use your lip balm after cooling. Apply it daily before you go to bed. Once you wake up you will see the dry skin flakes on your lips are moisturised enough. Scrub those dry flakes from your lips once you wake up and say hello to smooth, soft lips.

Tips To Avoid Darkening of Lips
1. Cut back or completely eliminate smoking. Chewing tobacco (which I trust you ladies don’t do) is also going to blacken that pout.
2.Too much tea and coffee has been associated with darkening of lips, though substantial research is lacking. Restrict to two cups a day.
3. Always use lips balms with SPF content when you are going out to protect them from sun tan. Many lipsticks also come with SPF and these are great for you when you need to venture outside.
4. Exfoliate lips to get rid of dead skin layers and a lot of the tanned or dull, darker skin cells will also be removed.
