A case of Immediate concern is with my lips. I smoked a lot of cigarettes before I quit 4 years back. Also went on a stint of relapse for few months last year. And I never took care of the lips as much as I tried to do my face. This seems to have left me with way darker lips than I had as a teen maybe around 4 shades darker, along with an increase in the dark area on the areas leading upto the outer edges on the lower lips. It’s like the dark areas have grown into the chin, if you know what I mean and made my lips bigger visually? I had tried some home remedies like lime with glycerin a long while back which gets results but its messy and not something that you can do consistently. I’m also not sure if it’s harmful and will cause more darkness since I’m not sure what I’m doing. What’s happening and have you guys solved this area of the skin? I have not come across any posts regarding this. Kindly advice.
