(Using homemade remedies)
Most of the people face this problem, during monsoon and winter season this problem increases. As dry skin becomes drier in these seasons, and troubles a lot. Recently few of my customers questioned me that I have a dark and dry skin around the mouth and it feels very bad as I can’t do make-up or wash my face again and again and I’m facing lots of problems?
The reason why this problem starts:-
1. The area around the mouth becomes dark and dry due to the hyper pigmentation of the skin around the mouth.
2. In cold season the skin around the mouth becomes dry, usually there is a tendency to wet the area with our saliva. The saliva has substances which darken the skin.
3. When we rub too hard around mouth on skin then that area starts becoming darker and drier.
4. When our skin exposure’s to sun rays.
5. Due to skin inflammation or endocrine diseases.
But less your worries because today I will share few Homemade and Natural remedies which will help to reduce Dry and Dark Skin around mouth.
