Discoloration over lips due to picking habit. How can I get the color back permanently?

Hello. I ve been picking my lips for about thirteen years (basically since I can remember) and I ve quit for good. I want to know about my lips though. When I look in the mirror, I can see the distinct line where my lip color should still be, both on bottom and upper lip all around, and it s not the same pink as my lips, it s just skin colored. I shouldn t be too badly dehydrated, I try to drink at least a bottle of water a day, and I like to use chapstick. Could you tell me what I can do to gain the color back permanently?
