Over bleaching of the skin, threading, waxing and other procedures that eliminate hair from the surface of the skin can lead to a dark shadow on the upper lip. Other factors that cause the shadow are over consumption of alcohol and smoking. While there are plenty of procedures that promise to take care of this condition you need not invest in them for there are many procedures that you can use at home.
Remedies for Dark Upper Lip Shadow
Lime and lemon juice are commonly used products when you are trying to bleach a certain part of your body naturally and it will work for the upper lip area as well. Applying the juice of a lime or lemon on the area for a few minutes will help to lighten the hair and thereby hide it. Do not keep the juice on for more than 15 minutes and make sure that you wash it off with warm water.
You could also mix equal parts of honey and lemon juice and apply it to the upper lip for 15 minutes and then wash it off. This will help to get rid of the hair as well as any scars on the area.
If the pigmentation on your skin is a result of over bleaching then cucumber juice will come to your rescue. You could apply the juice directly to your skin or mix it equal parts of the juice with lemon juice and apply it to the skin.
Leave the mix on your skin for approximately 30 minutes and then wash it off. This will help you to clean the skin from deep within and also reduce the effect of the hair on the skin.
You can also prepare a face mask and apply it on your face twice a week to get rid of the hair. Mix chick pea flour with a pinch of turmeric and the cream of milk and a drop of honey.
Apply this mix on your face and massage it for 15 to 20 minutes. If you use circular movements then you will be able to remove the hair from the roots. After you have massaged the skin well you must let the paste dry and then wash it off with warm water. You will feel smooth and youthful and free of any skin discoloration.
