Hello I am an African American woman who has struggled with lip discoloration for 3-4 years. I have two or 3 dark patches on the upper half of my bottom lip and it has gotten darker over the years. I also suffer from lip discoloration, seeing that the I have a lighter shade of pink in the upper region and a darker shade of pink in the lower region of my lip. I decided to put matter into my own hands and find a natural solution. I made a lemon and almond oil mixture to put on the dark patches for several days and It has made the problem worse by making the pinker areas of my lips even more pink. I'm at wit's end here and I'm very self conscious of my lips. I can only apply lipstick for so long to try to camouflage the discoloration. Please help me I will insert pics.
