Hyperpigmentation, go away
February 3, 2014 12:56 PM Subscribe
I've had hyperpigmentation around my mouth and chin for as long as I can remember. It usually looks like a shadow, but I think it's getting darker and I'm beginning to feel really self-conscious about it. I also have very dark circles under my eyes, despite getting more than enough sleep. Any idea what's causing this, and what I can do?

My dermatologist last year suggested taking antioxidants, using fluoride-free toothpaste, and applying lemon juice and whitening creams, but they don't seem to have helped. I use sunscreen regularly and my exposure to sun is on the low side.
