Lip colour can also vary from person to person, just like skin tone. No shade of skin on the lips is healthier than any other or superior in anyway. However, a change in the colour or condition could indicate that your lips need extra care.
There are a number of causes of dark lips
1. Increased exposure to the sun causes an increase in production of melanin in your skin. This exposure causes pigmentation, which could lead to dark lips.
2. Certain products like toothpaste, lipstick, etc, may cause an allergic reaction on an individual which may also cause hyperpigmentation in your lips.
3. Melanosis, a major cause of dark lips caused by excessive smoking. This is a pigmentation issue common among smokers.
Here are some ways to lighten your lips
Coconut oil. Using your fingertip, take a very small amount of coconut oil and gently apply it evenly over your lips. You can do this multiple times during the day and also before you go to sleep at night.
- Olive oil. Before bed, massage a few drops of olive oil onto your lips.
- Lemon juice is well-known for its ability to lighten skin. Rub a few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice on your lips before bed each night. Rinse off in the morning with warm water. Also, in order to make it more nourishing, you can mix lemon and honey together and apply it to your lips at night.
- Cucumber juice. In a blender, juice half a cucumber. Cool the juice in the refrigerator. Once the juice is cool, dip a cotton ball into it and use the cotton ball to gently apply the juice onto your lips. Leave the cucumber juice on your lips for about 30 minutes, then rinse off with cool water.
- Pomegranates can help to restore the natural colour of your lips. Crush a tablespoon of pomegranate seeds and then mix with milk to create a thick paste. Rub the paste onto your lips and rinse it off after 2-3 minutes. Discontinue if irritation occurs
- Strawberry. Make a paste by mixing together five crushed, medium-sized strawberries and 2 teaspoons of baking soda. Gently apply this paste to your lips at bedtime, then rinse off with cool water the next morning
- Potatoes contain “catecholase,” a naturally occurring enzyme that is best known for reducing darkness and the appearance of scars. Rub a slice of potato on your lips before bedtime. Wash your lips with warm water in the morning.
#WhyIDidntReport Trends On Twitter As Rape Survivors Reveal Why They Kept Quiet After Being Abused
Women and men who have been sexually abused or raped have gone on Twitter to explain why they didn’t report their abusers.

Some of them are sharing their reasons on Twitter with the hashtag #WhyIDidntReport.
The tweets shared are so many that the hashtag is now trending on the microblogging platform.
Below are a few of the tweets shared.
Virgil Abloh Criticized For Donating A Trifling $50 To #BlackLivesMatter Protesters’ Bail Fund
Virgil Abloh, the founder and CEO of the premium brand ‘Off-White’ and artistic director of menswear line at Louis Vuitton, had a very interesting way of expressing his support to the Black Lives Matter movement and social media users are not here for it.
Since protests ignited by George Floyd’s death broke, many protesters who support the Black Lives Matter movement have been arrested for ‘looting’ and ‘violence’. Several celebrities have offered to pay for the legal expenses and release of the protesters who have been taken into custody.
While celebrities like Chrissy Teigen have already pledged $200,000 to help out the imprisoned protesters, Abloh revealed through his Instagram story that he had donated “$50” to protesters in need of bail money.
“The Miami community ~ I’m crazy inspired. For kids in the streets that need a bail funds [sic] for George Floyd protests,” he wrote in the Story.
In the backdrop of protests, Abloh took to his Instagram to rant about ‘streetwear culture’ and slammed the protesters for ransacking Sean Wotherspoon’s store.
In Los Angeles, the RSVP Gallery, which sells his ‘Off-White’ brand, was looted.
Reacting to the news, he said that the ones who have looted the merchandise should be ashamed of their actions.
“If it heals your pain, you can have it,” he wrote.
Twitter erupted with anger over Abloh’s modest contribution — some even briefly changed his Wikipedia page to read Virgil “Cheap Ass” Abloh and Virgil “50$” Abloh.
I should be sleep, but I’m up thinking about how Virgil Abloh donated $50 and then told people
