Avoid these 10 lip pigmentation blunders.

Lip pigmentation, like hyperpigmentation, is a frequent skincare issue. 

Most people with brown or dark complexion have experienced hyperpigmentation. 

Whether it's sun spots, acne scars, or melasma, including pigmented lips.

Melanin deposits discolor lips, causing lip pigmentation. It can be caused by sun exposure, smoking, or diet. 

Food allergies in the mouth, like hyperpigmentation. 

The good news is that pigmented lips may be rectified, & Dr. Ashna Pinto, Consultant Dermatologist at Kaya Skin Clinic, shares the mistakes to avoid.

Hydrated lips resist dryness and cracking. For smooth lips, exfoliate regularly. Massage your lips with a gentle lip scrub or a homemade sugar-honey mixture to reduce flakiness. 

Moisturize your lips daily with a healthy lip balm or moisturizer. Shea butter, coconut oil, and hyaluronic acid moisturize. 

Apply SPF lip balm before going outside, especially in the sun. This prevents UV-induced sunburn, dryness, and pigmentation changes. 

Licking your lips temporarily moisturizes but eventually dries them. Saliva evaporates quickly, drying your lips. 

Use a lip balm for prolonged moisture. Matte or long-wearing lipsticks might dry lips.

Choose moisturizing lip products. An undiagnosed lipstick allergy can also cause lip discoloration.
