Hi,Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Its good, that you don't smoke but you should be avoiding Coffee and tea which play a part in darkening your lips However, one or two cups a day does not matter - it is only when you have them in excess. General allergies, lip sucking can contribute to making lips dark. After you brush your teeth every morning, try using your toothbrush to brush your lips too. Avoid stepping out in the sun. Apply lemon juice on your lips every night before you hit the bed. Drink at least 8 glasses of water each day, it could also be due to some nutritional deficiencies. Eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables.

Good Luck.
