hey, You have answered your own question! Quitting smoking will give you back your natural pink lips... You will usually see the difference in about 2-3 days of no smoking! I know this because I was a smoker, now non-smoker and my lips also had dark marks on them due to smoking, as soon as I quit I got my natural pink color back on my lips!
