Darkened, chapped lips can lead to a bad first impression. They make
you look unclean and unhealthy. Causes of black, chapped lips range
from the body's absorption of toxic ingredients to the lack of proper
lip care.
sun's rays harm all parts of the
body, including the lips. The lips are especially vulnerable to
hyperpigmentation, or an overproduction of melanin. Overexposure to
ultraviolet rays causes hyperpigmentation. Applying lip balm with
sunscreen in it prevents your lips from drying, cracking or changing
colors. Wearing a scarf also stops the sun from damaging your lips..
