Try applying a small amount of cayenne pepper. An old beauty remedy is to use a little bit of spicy cayenne on the outside of your lips. Mix a small amount of pepper with water to form a thin paste, then apply this on your lips and leave it for about ten minutes. Rinse off with water.
- Avoid licking your lips when the paste is applied on your lips.
This essentially works by irritating your skin, and eventually drying it out. Don’t use this as a long term solution.
