Dark Lips

The skin of the lip, with three to five cellular layers, is very thin compared to typical face skin, which has up to 16 layers. With light skin color, the lip skin contains fewer melanocytes (cells which produce melanin pigment , which give skin its color). Because of this, the blood vessels appear through the skin of the lips, which leads to their notable red coloring. With darker skin color this effect is less prominent, as in this case the skin of the lips contains more melanin and thus is visually darker. The skin of the lip forms the border between the exterior skin of the face, and the interior mucous membrane of the inside of the mouth.

Why are lips red?

Your lips' red or pink pigment comes from underlying blood vessels -- red-colored, blood-filled capillaries are close to the thin skin on your lips. Naturally, your lips should be colored with your blood vessels. So that should mean, the healthier your lifestyle is, the more nutritious you eat, the more glowing and bright your lips should look. And if you have good blood circulation through exercise, your lips should be reddish or pinkish. Unfortunately, this is only true for Caucasians or most people with light skin tone. The problem we're facing is that, there's a dark spot on the lips that blocks the pinkish or reddish tone underneath. If you look closely at the mirror, you'll notice that the dark patch on your lips is actually a thick dark skin covering your lip area. Thus, your lips look dark when it's actually reddish or pinkish.

This is what Dark Lips Magic gets rid of...the dark spot on the lips.
