Ok ladies, I need ur help!! I have a rather embarassing situation. In the last month, I've noticed a dark discoloration that is on my upper lip. It looks like I have a five o'clock shadow on my lip. I would understand if maybe I dark colored hair. But I have light blonde hair, and I have never had this problem before. Make-up won't even cover it up, that is the most frustrating part. Does anybody out there know what causes this or what will make it go away. Please help me! Thank you if you can.:confused:
If you wax (which I do) you MUST wear sun block for a few days after (or just avoid sun) or it can make your skin dark there. The skin is especially sensitive right after waxing. I actually learned this from a friend who had her upper lip waxed on a Friday, then was in the sun on Sat. without enough (or any) sun block and got a little shadow. It did eventually fade.

For MoonLight: If you wear foundation, can you buy one 1-2 shades darker just to wear there?

I do have a foundation that is a couple of shades darker and I wear it only when I tan my body (and not my face - don't need wrinkles). I use the foundation to match my face with my body. The discoloration isn't that noticable, however, unless I don't wear any makeup at all... even then most people probably wouldn't notice it (but I do, heh). It's mostly selfconsciousness for most of us, I think. And much of it has to do with hormones and/or birthcontrol.
