What's the best treatment for pigmentation of the lips?

I have been suffering from pigmentation and chapped lips from 3 years. Please suggest something which can remove this and I get my natural lip colour back.

This is often due to rubbing or irritation which is eczema or contact allergy and needs to be treated appropriately.  If this is from sun or genetics, then sun screen, lightening creams and vitamin c serums are needed.  Peels can be done over time as well.  There is no "cure" for this just improvement.  Best, Dr. Emer.
