Dark circles around your mouth happen when you have more melanin in that area of your skin.

Causes of melanin also known as hyperpigmentation are too much exposure to the sun, skin inflammation and even endocrine diseases.

To get rid of the dark circles around your mouth you can try applying some apple cider vinegar solution to the affected area using a cotton ball or cotton swab.
