    Default My upper lip skin is getting dark

    I am 20 years old college going girl. My upper lip skin is getting dark because of frequent hair removal. Even my face looks dull. Please help?

    If your skin is getting dull and dark at this age, it shows that you are not taking proper care of your skin and diet. Always put sunscreen on the exposed parts of your body 15-20 minutes prior to leaving home. Scrub your facial skin once or twice a week by making the scrub at home too.

    You should apply sunscreen going out.

    You should rub some lemon/apply lemon juice daily on your upper lip to avoid its darkening.

    I think your skin is doesn't get use to with the climate so should try some ayurvedic stuff...

    I thread my upper lips once in a while and this has never happened to me either. Is your skin dark? I find that my upper lips are now a bit whiter than the rest of my face because it used to be protected by a thin layer of hair, which when threaded away revels my natural hair color.
