Thanks for posting your query.
Dark tanning of your lips id because of smoking.
You have to quit smoking for again achieving brightness of your lips.
You should consult with general physician and should take proper medicines for quitting smoking.
You can also apply beetroot, lime juice and almond oil for better appearance of your lips.
Take lesser amount of tea & coffee.
Lipsticks with moisturizers will keep the lips nourished and also hide the dark spots.
Vitamin C, essential for the production of collagen is reduced by smoking. It should be included in your diet since it helps in building new tissues.
Hope that helps.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
