Re: Upper lip darkening

It's called melasma. Hormones can cause this type of hyperpigmentation. It's caused by hormones, hormone changes, or hormones you take. A dermatologist can prescribe or recommend a skin lightening or bleaching product that is suited for your particular situation. Using a sunscreen is a must, the hyperpigmentation will get darker if you don't use a sunscreen.
