Daily Health Tips: Why Are My Lips Black?


Q: Hi, my lips are very black and I don’t smoke. Ma’am, can you please give me tips on how to get them pink or even lighten it…please?

A: Smoking can, most definitely, make your lips go dark or even black. It may also be due to overproduction of the hormone that leads to the dark colour of black people (melanin). To prevent this, you can use lip balms, especially those with sunscreen and avoid dehydration which can make your lips get dry, chapped and discoloured. Other tips you can try can be found in this post which I had made a while back on this subject.

If you’ve got children like mine, you’re probably repeating the statement ‘go and put some petroleum jelly on your lips’ very often these days. Maybe they are listening, maybe they are not. 😀 Let’s give you some more tips to prevent or treat dry and chapped lips.

Moisten a kitchen paper or handkerchief and wet your lips (Or you could use an old soft-bristled toothbrush to gently brush out the dry skin. Don’t do this for more than 60 seconds to prevent irritation and bleeding). Then apply petroleum jelly to your lips and rub your lips together to make sure the jelly is well absorbed. Then use lipstick (if you’re female)or lip balm (if you’re male), blot out excess by biting on dry wipes and then apply lip gloss…just enough to give a nice shine. If you’re a guy, I suggest you skip the last step 😀 As the old/dry skin ‘peels’ off, the new ‘lips’ will emerge!

Overnight, apply moisturizer to your lips and around your mouth to allow your lips moisturize overnight. If you don’t want to use a moisturizer, use petroleum jelly.

Drinking sufficient water daily also doesn’t hurt 😀 Be a boy scout and carry lip balm around in your pocket or handbag.

Have a great evening 😀
