Hi Sagar,
To treat your dark lips, you might try these treatment options-
1) avoid tea,coffee, smoking
2) use a lip balm with good SPF.
3) apply Kojic acid or hydro quinine or liquorice arbutin based cream over lips to lighten lip color
4) you may also take lactic acid or arginine peels

Hope that answers your query. Take care.

Hello I have gone through your complaints. The most common cause for darkening of lips is smoking. But you are a non smoker which is a good habit. Coffee will not turn your lips darker. As the age proceeds this can be a normal phenomenon and there is no need to worry much about it. You need to take more water and fresh fruits for a good health and freshness.

Thank you. Good day
