Brief Answer:
skin lightening cream

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Dark lips are inherent and difficult to treat.

There are various modalities but the result is not that great.

However you can give a trial.

Use a mild depigmenting agent like melaglow in night.
In morning you can apply a mild steroid like mometasone cream.
Later in the day use lip balms, containing sunscreen.

Peels are also a good option.

You can go for milder peels like lactic acid, once a month.

Also take an antioxidant capsule daily.

Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Thank you
