Dark lips treatment

Fair skin is generally regarded as the symbol of beauty and most women desire to be called beautiful. Sometimes, you may be fair, but your complexion may be uneven. Dark patches of skin look especially unsightly when the rest of your complexion is fair. It is generally seen that women suffer from the problem of darker upper lips. This can be attributed to frequent shocks to the area while uprooting the hairs.As you keep on uprooting the hair on your upper lips, you tend to open your pores which may get pigmented on account of extreme weather conditions and this causes a darkening of the upper lip. Here are a few natural remedies to relieve the condition:

  • You should use lemon juice on your upper lips as a scrub to remove the dead skin from this area. Lemon juice is an excellent bleaching agent, which will lighten the skin tone of your upper lips, with very minimal or no serious repercussions.
