How do I get rid of the black marks on my face?

Q: I have black marks on both sides of my lips. Also, I have two dark lines starting from the bottom of my lower lip all the way to the end of the chin that makes me look quite bad. These are not because of acne or pimples because I don't have any pimples or acne on those spots. Please suggest a remedy for this.

A:This appears to be a condition called dysebacea, due to disturbed secretion and functionality of the oil glands or sebaceous glands. This dysfunction along with the melanin pigments of the skin is likely to cause the linear pigmentation that you describe. You can adopt the following measures:

  • Frequent washing of face with soap and water
  • Pat dry the face, never rub dry
  • Use gently a drying agent like adapalene during nights
  • Apply a depigmenting agent like 2% hydroquinone by day
  • Avoid exposure to sunlight
  • Take of plenty of water
  • Mild to moderate physical exercise to sweat well
