Pale ring around lips, dry lips, peeling area around lips. How can I get rid of it?

I have a pale ring around my lips . A few weeks ago I had really dry lips. I moisturised them with Carmex and Vaseline and the skin around my lips started pealing. I carried on moisturising and then I started to notice the area around my lips that had peeled had turned paler than my normal skin colour. My lips aren t dry anymore but the pale circle aroun my lips is still there. How can I get rid of it?
