Lip Pigmentation

Lips darkening over time is a common problem among women, especially Indian women. We did already talk about hyperpigmentation and why it’s rampart in the country considering our erratic weather and other environmental factors. Hyperpigmentation in skin is a skin condition that people of colour do face very often and is caused by excess melanin production. In the same way, pigmented lips are caused by many reasons – from sun exposure to using the wrong lip products to lack of hydration. Add to that, they can also be a result of smoking, allergies, pregnancy or even excessive consumption of caffeine. And sometimes, it just boils down to genetics and habits where lips are constantly dry or chapped.
