Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Smoking can indeed be one of the factors causing lip color to become blackish. However, not only that, dehydration, excessive exposure to sunlight, allergies (for example to toothpaste or lipstick), excessive caffeine consumption, and excessive lip sucking habits can also make lips no longer bright. Various diseases, such as anemia, lack of vitamins, side effects of chemotherapy, and so on can also make your lips darker.
The condition you experience is often not a dangerous thing. However, if you feel the color of your lips is very disturbing you, it never hurts you to see yourself directly to a doctor or dermatologist. With this step, the doctor can certainly give you the best treatment, for example by giving lip cream or vitamins, drugs, or also other medical measures, tailored to your needs.
At home, you can also try your lips to look brighter in the following ways:
Apply some natural ingredients on your lips regularly, for example lemon, lime, turmeric, aloe vera, coconut oil, olive oil, strawberry, almond oil, etc. (make sure you don't experience any allergies or irritations after using these ingredients on your lips) No excessive lip rubbing Do not carelessly have cosmetics and toothpaste, make sure to match the needs and type of your lips. Expand also eat brightly colored vegetables and fruits. Drink at least 2 liters of water per day. Don't smoke Enough sleep. Hope it helps, yes.
