Hormonal imbalance is the reason of having dark lips. When hormonal changes appeared in body you will see major changes in your body. Your skin tone becomes dark, unnecessary hair growth, blotting or other facial problems. You have to consult with good doctor for your hormonal treatment.
Fake cosmetics and toothpaste:
Fake cosmetics are the problem of these days where various copies of branded makeups are easily available in market in cheap price. And girls are buying fake cosmetic products which causes major skin related problems. Fake lipsticks are highly not recommended for your lips. Try to use gloss or lip balms on your lips instead of matte shiny lipsticks.
