Sugar is not only used in foods, but is also very good for exfoliating. Using sugar on your lips can help you get those desired pink lips. This is because scrubbing you lips with sugar will remove the death cells and enhance blood circulation on the lips.

However, sugar has to be combined with some natural products to give you those amazing, succulent pink lips. Here are three different method on how you can use sugar to acquire pink lips.

Sugar and honey scrub:

Mix 1-2 teaspoons of  fine granulated sugar with a few drops of honey or coconut oil to create a paste. Gently apply this mixture on your lips and rub it in a circular motion for 1-2 minutes. Rinse it off with warm water, pat your lips dry and moisturize. This scrub will help remove dead skin cells, leaving your lips looking fresher and pinker.

Sugar and lemon juice scrub:

Combine 1 teaspoon of sugar with a few drops of fresh lemon juice. Apply this mixture on your lips and gently rub for about a minute. The sugar exfoliates while the lemon juice can help lighten the lip color. Rinse it off with warm water and moisturize your lips with a lip balm or coconut oil.

Sugar and rosewater scrub:

Mix 1-2 teaspoons of sugar with enough rosewater to create a thick paste. Apply the paste to your lips and gently massage it in for a minute or two. Rosewater is known for its skin-nourishing properties and can help add a subtle pink tint to your lips. Rinse with warm water and moisturize your lips with a lip balm.

My advise is that you should be gentle when using sugar on your lips because they are sensitive. Don't overdo it, and also, it's essential to moisturize your lips after exfoliating to keep them hydrated.

It is dangerous for you to use any of these methods if you have any open cuts or sores on your lips, as the lemon juice or other ingredients may sting or irritate the skin.
