Hi friends, today we will be talking about Dark Lips or darkening of the skin covering the lips. Today, I will tell you about the causes of this problem, what you can do to prevent it, and also it’s treatment.
There are many causes of darkened lips
the most common cause is makeup and products which are applied on the lips When people use cheap quality lipsticks, lip balms, lip liners, and lip glosses then the substandard components of these products, such as their coloring agents, scents and flavors cause the skin of the lips to become dark You will notice that all good and big companies which manufacture makeup and lip products use very high-quality colors in their products. Furthermore, they have very little flavor or scent. Going to sleep at night, without removing makeup causes spots and blemishes on your face, and also leads to allergies. This also causes lips to darken Other factors for dark lips are dry and cracked skin, smoking too much and even consumption of excessive amounts of coffee and tea
Sometimes, using the wrong kind of toothpaste can also cause lips to get discolored, due to the chemicals contained inside it.
Sunburn and melasma can also cause lips to darken
That is why it is important that whichever lipstick or lip balm you use
also contains sun protection
Anemia, which is caused by reduced amount of blood cells, or a deficiency of vitamins in the body can also cause lips to darken
Those who suffer from these problems should take iron and vitamin supplements for at least 2 months, in order to get cured
Many medicines, such as Isotretinoin, which is used to treat acne/pimples
and antibiotics such as tetracycline
also malaria medicines, and especially hydroquinone, which is used as a skin lightening agent
can also cause the lips to become darkened
If you are using any of these medicines, then you should stop using them.
