Lifestyle changes that can be made to address most of these factors and are:
Diminishing coffee consumption
Use a lip balm containing SPF
Quit smoking & chewing tobacco
Avoid licking lips
Don’t use expired products on your lips
Moisturizing lips daily as dry & damaged lips can have a dark appearance
Cosmetic surgery can treat hyper Pigmentation on lips. Lip hyper Pigmentation is usually treated with laser procedures and meds like hydroquinone and kojic acid. Numerous Lip Pigmentation procedures work by obstructing melanin-producing compounds.
A dermatologist might suggest one of the following procedures if you need to get rid of skin Pigmentation around your mouth.
Retinol or hydroquinone
Azelaic corrosive to diminish discoloration and irritation
Kojic corrosive for melasma and age spots
Laser treatment for dull spots
Chemical peels – used for skin exfoliation and to lighten Pigmentation.
If you use sun protection methods, for example, applying sunscreen consistently, dull patches might vanish. While applying sunscreen, the mouth region can easily be missed, so make a point to do it consistently and reapply depending on the situation.
