    I waxed with pre waxed strips on my upper lip but over time the skin has become extremely white especially compared to my olive skin. How do I make the white skin back to normal??

    with dermatological problems (skin / hair), a basic description isnt really much to go on as a lot of conditions share a similar trait (ideally post a pic of your lips / surrounding area...making sure to delete personal info & not show identifiable features) but it could be multiple things tbh.

    I have a hunch it could be damaged skin around your lips and this may or maynot heal with time depening on how it is. But like I said, it is a hunch and as I haven't actually seen it, my opinion may as well be a load of BS.

    the fact you have olive skin intrigues me as is your skin naturally olive coloured or is it tanned (generally if you remove the top layer of skin via shaving, waxing etc, the layers underneath are paler in comparison to the top as the cells at the top have accumulated more melanin (the pigment which darkens your skin) than the bottom). It happens to me when I shave so it could just be that tbh.

    I would say go to a doctor to check it out / speak to a pharmacist to check it (I reckon seeing a GP would be more beneficial tbh if it is serious / causing discomfort/gets infected)
