Im a 17 year old asian male with dark lips. I was born with lighter lips but i have neglected them when i was younger. I have always peeled and ate the skin of my lips (I know disgusting lol) when i was younger and they were chapped. Everytime i went to the dentists, when i'd have my teeth pulled and they used anesthesia i'd take very hot water and test on my lips to see how i can not feel the pain. I never really cared about my lips from about 5 years old to 13.

The best treatment for the dark spots would be GLYCOLIC treatments. If they are too expensive for you, then I would get a good acid cream from your Dermatologist. It should fade but it might take a while. If you don't do anything about it, trust me when I say that it will definitely get darker and bigger and I'm sure you don't want that. O.K.

Hi, I am a 30-year-old female with a dark complexion. I have been having dark lips all my life and due to a long time usage of dark color lipsticks, it appears as if my lips have turned even darker. They are not cracked or problematic in any other ways, but just the color is an issue. I regularly apply chapstick to keep it moisturized and drink enough water, and generally a healthy eater. I was wondering if there are any lip lightening creams available that works or a laser treatment.
