Are they really bad marks? I mean you could go for the jacko (surgery). But i think the only other way is something like concealer.
Or youu could fake tan your whole face so nobody could tell the difference (which would probably look worse)
Im pretty sure you cant lighten your skin without surgery (or make up).
Youre best going to the doctors, they might be able to supply a cream for it (some kind of weak bleach)
Thanks anyway x
Anyone got any ideas?? Thanks
It's probably just how the skin's supposed to be. I don't think there's any magical cure for uneven skin tone, short of concealing with makeup....
I'm told that the dark areas of the mouth are caused by hyperpigmentation from saliva ( most likely while you're sleeping ) In other words your skin reacts to the prolonged exposure to the saliva and over pigments this area... If you are prone to hyperpigmentation ( like me ) this is only the beginning of your problems... I used to have hyperpigmentation on my knees and elbows too before using Kojic Acid soap and Neutrogena "Visibly Even" face cream . It keeps the hyperpigmentation areas from over reacting on your skin.
Try to stay away from fade creams with Hydroquinone in them though . There are many other alternatives now that are proven to be much heathier .
Hope this helps !

lol i like how you've demonstrated your point with the photograph.
try lemon juice.
(Yes, I know this thread is very old)
Can you please give an update re: if you was able to get rid of the darkness on the outside corners of your mouth and if so what product(s) did you use? I am dealing with the same problem and nothing I've used thus far has helped (Triluma, bleaching creams, Retin-A 0.1%, eating a lot of apples, taking vitamin B-12, etc).
I have had it for over 3years bit just getting worse
I wonder if OP sorted it.
I have the same problem. My dermatologist prescribed Fluticasone Propionate Cream, 0.05%. I have been using it twice a day for the past month and have seen some pleasant results. In the U.S., it cost about $63.
