discolouration of lips

Hi there,
             I recently have had dry lips almost like a rash and after this has stopped the colour has come out of them, also about a year ago a rim came up around my lips that is still present and it looks like I have brown lip liner on! What is this? Can anyone help?

You need to maintain adequate hydration. Drink at least 1.5 - 2.0 litres of water every day. Avoid alcohol and smoking. Try to have a healthy diet schedule and eat lots of fresh fruits and vegetables. Take multi vitamin and mineral supplements especially Vitamin B complex and zinc to make up for any deficiencies in your diet.
Use a medicated sunscreen lip balm so that the damage due to sun exposure can be avoided.
Hope this helps.
Good luck.
