Skin tone question...

Let me explain...In the summer when I start getting tan, the skin on my upper lip gets darker than the rest of my skin. Almost looks like I don't wash it. Foundation does not help, if anything it will make it look darker. Any suggestions?

  • did you get it waxed? When you wax your upper lip a lil layer of skin peels off , and ofcourse "new" skin is very sensetive... so if you got tan afterwards it might have taking on too much

  • There are products protecting your lips from UV rays. Unfortunately, I am not sure where you can find them. You may look for products on search engines.

  • omg, i just asked this question! :-) My pregnancy mask is starting to show again (my son is 8m) - on my upper lip - gets worse when I've been in the sun. I just started using sunscreen, and ordered a brightening creme from AVON. Some people said that bleaching helps... so we'll see!!
