At the ends of my lips i see it is little dark in color so i applied honey and sugar mix on the dark area.. it now became even more darker .. so i started applying neutrogena fine fairness cream for lightening the dark color.. after applying the cream my entire skin started becoming red and i also have little burning sensation so i started rubbing with ice cubes and i also applied aloevera gel and also boroplus antiseptic cream but still i could see my skin red and little burning sensation is still present. Could you please tell me any home remedy for this or any ointment which could reduce burning sensation and lighten the darkness around my lips

# Hello.
Darkness around the lips is most common in people who are naturally darker complexion and who have quite a bit of sun exposure. Nothing darkens the skin as much sun exposure does. The first thing I would recommend is that you use a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher on a regular basis regardless of whether it’s sunny or not.
Hydroquinone bleaching cream’s may help but you have to be careful because anything beyond 4% can cause the opposite effect and dark in the lines even more
