Dark Lips on Non-Smokers

I just thought of sharing this tips since I myself experienced this problem too...

The Cause:
Dyes in lipstick can be photo-allergenic, meaning they can react with light or the sun, producing inflammation that can result in skin darkening. Other ingredients in lipsticks like perfumes , beeswax and colophony rosin may cause an allergic reaction; thereby darkening your lips.

How to fix it:
Read the label of your lipstick ; it's worth the effort . Find an alternative if it contains chemicals like carmine, petroleum or aluminum. Also use a good moisture barrier or lip sunscreen under your lipstick.
