    For MoonLight: If you wear foundation, can you buy one 1-2 shades darker just to wear there?
    I do have a foundation that is a couple of shades darker and I wear it only when I tan my body (and not my face - don't need wrinkles). I use the foundation to match my face with my body. The discoloration isn't that noticable, however, unless I don't wear any makeup at all... even then most people probably wouldn't notice it (but I do, heh). It's mostly selfconsciousness for most of us, I think. And much of it has to do with hormones and/or birthcontrol.

    Re: Discoloration on upper lip??

    It may be from past sun exposure. I had something similiar (still kinda have it) but it was red. The best thing you can do is get IPL its a laser that rids the skin of discolration from freckles, broken caps, redness etc. I noticed a dramatic result after one session. It can be pricey however it works, also you end up spending a ton on creams that end up not working thus a waste of money.
