A natural vibrant lip and cheek tint made with the goodness of beets and nothing else.
You can make your own lip and cheek stain at home using beetroot. Beetroot has antibacterial properties that help fight against bacteria. It also helps to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells, fights against free radicals in the body, rejuvenate skin and helps in getting rid of pigmentation. It is an excellent source of antioxidants that can possibly increase blood circulation to your skin.
If you have dark pigmented lips and want healthy pink lips then use this beetroot lips stain on your lips before going to bed to heal and protect your lips. READ MORE – SKIN BRIGHTENING NATURAL BODY CLEANSER

First you need to make beetroot powder, beet powder is easily available online but I like to make my own powder. Peel off the skin from the beetroot and then grate it or slice it evenly. Try the beetroot on a tray in a sunny place for 3-4 days. Once the beet is dried, use a grinder or blender and blend to a powder. Using a strainer, strain the powder for a fine finish.
You can use this powder in your smoothie, soup on your yogurt or mix it with water to make a natural food color for your cakes or any baking recipes.

To make a lip and cheek stain, add 1 tsp of powder ( or more depending on the shade you want ) to 1 tbsp of aloe vera gel ( use store bought 99% pure aloe vera gel without added color or fragrance).
Mix the two ingredients together, add in more beetroot powder to get your desired shade. Store it in an airtight glass container. Apply the stain on well-exfoliated lips and also on your cheeks. Keep layering 2-3 times until you have achieved your desired shade.
If you want the stain to be more liquidy then add 1 tbsp of rose water and pour the stain into a dropper bottle. READ MORE – HAIR GROWTH POWDER RECIPE
