The focus of a beautiful face is the eyes and lips and beautiful lips are a sign of sensuality and youth. Unfortunately, our lips are also one of the first areas to show signs of aging due to environmental and natural forces that may be beyond our control.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, both key components of plump lips. Lip lines and wrinkles at the corners of your smile become more noticeable with this loss of collagen and elastin. Added to this, loss of facial fat makes lip thinning inevitable.
Mouth Wrinkles and Lips Lines: Why Do I Have Them?
UVA and UVB rays from the sun and tanning booths destroy collagen fibers. Even worse is the smoking of cigarettes: The action of repetitive lip pursing when smoking and the toxin from the smoke itself eventually results in the formation of deep vertical lip lines. And finally, let’s not forget to blame our thinning lips and our upper lip wrinkles on genetic codes that are passed down to us by our parents.
OK. Now that we know the bad news, is there any hope? Can this inevitability be fixed? Using moisturizers, sunscreens and eliminating smoking are terrific ways to help minimize future effects of skin aging. Though these measures alone will not restore full lips or erase existing lip lines, being conscious of how they got there in the first place is an important step in controlling the problem. But if you want to enhance the appearance of your lips and mouth area, what can you do?
