RESTORE YOUR YOUTHFUL LOOKING LIPS
With age, lips grow thin and lose their colour. Most men and women, begin to notice changes in their lips some time in their thirties and forties. Just as lips begin to thin, they also develop tiny lines, often called lip lines or smoker’s lines.
When this dramatic transformation of the lips occurs, it also considerably changes the overall appearance of the face, making it look older and tired. Simple solutions are available to restore more youthful, rejuvenated, and healthy-looking lips.
CAUSES OF THINNING LIPS
Thinning lips can be caused by a series of factors. However, the main cause is considered to be a lack of collagen. As a matter of fact, as of the age of 20, the body’s collagen production reduces by about 1 percent each year. As a result, skin sags, and wrinkles and lines develop. Collagen is indispensable because it provides structure, volume and elasticity of the skin.
Other factors that contribute to thinning lips are:
Repeated pursing or puckering
TARGETING THE RIGHT SIGNS OF AGING LIPS
Targeting the right signs of aging will allow you to delay the aging process and determine which treatment best suits the condition of your aging skin. Here are some of the most common solutions to reduce the appearance of aging lips.
Soften Lines And Wrinkles
Lines and wrinkles around the lips can make you look much older than you really are. Therefore, targeting lip lines, marionette lines (folds on the corners of your lips that run down to your chin), and nasolabial folds (folds on each side of the nose that run down to the corner of your lips), can drastically improve the appearance of your mouth.
Restore Colour And Texture
Aging lips fade in colour, and skin texture becomes uneven. The lack of collagen and depletion of the skin’s natural oils, render skin dull, coarse, and often damaged. Hydrating and restoring smoothness of the skin will significantly improve the overall look of your face.
Restore Volume And Enhance Existing Features
With age, lips become undefined and lack shape. The skin also becomes lax and lips become thinner. Plumping up your lips, and defining and enhancing the existing shape, will go a long way in improving the appearance of your lips.
