Helping skin discoloration
Specialized prescription creams can help lighten the dark brown discoloration under the eyes and around the mouth. Use UVA sunscreens as well all year around, preferably from a doctors office and not the drug store brands.
Mouth pigmentation in Indian Skin
This is possibly melasma. I would try prescription products such as Retin A and hydroquinone. If no improvement, chemical peels can be done. I've heard PRP might be helpful but have no experience in this situation.
Discoloration & Difficiencies
Deficiencies can effect skin tone, however I recommend a consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist with experience using combination treatments of creams, lasers, and peels for your hyperpigmentation. For you dark under eye, this is genetic and can be treated with lower eyelid surgery or fillers, lasers, and microneedling/PRP. Best, Dr. Emer.

Dark Circles around the mouth
This type of hyperpigmentation can be helped though a combination of topical Vitamin C, bleaching creams and chemical peels. Care must be used not to irritate the skin. Please consult a specialist. Best, Dr. Green
