The upper lip area—for a lot of women—is a touchy area. It’s meant to be hair-free, smooth, and even in color. Unfortunately, TONS of women experience darkened skin above their lips, and for a lot of them it’s really embarrassing.
I’ll be honest—I use a higher SPF in this area than on the rest of my face. In fact, I use the Oil Free Moisturizer SPF 17 on my face, and the Oil Free 30 very specifically on the area that tends to darken.
Mainly, though, I managed to fade my hyperpigmentation with Vitamin C Serum. In fact, it was much worse in my 20s than it is now (I’m 35) because I’ve been using the serum for a few years now. I don’t even use concealer for this problem anymore. If you’re experiencing dark skin above the lip, it’s definitely worth taking a closer at this serum, if you haven’t already.
