Are you worried about lines around the mouth and thinning lips? Lip lines are a tell tale sign of aging and even lifestyle, so how can these lines be reduced for a more youthful and fuller complexion?
Lip lines play a part in everybody’s list of concerns when it comes to keeping youthful skin. Lines are caused by the breakdown of collagen and elastin This can happen from aging and hormonal changes (even environmental factors such as sun damage and smoking)
Smoking causes lip lines around the mouth because of the repeated drawing on the cigarette and the effect the smoke has inside the body. Smoking reduces the oxygen in the body and depletes the anti oxidants (creating oxidative stress). Sun exposure is also known to accelerate the signs of aging. This is because UV radiation from the sun damages the collagen and elastin in the skin.
TIP: To help prevent sun damage on the lips try an SPF lip balm which will protect the skin outdoors.
