ANTI-AGING: HOW TO PREVENT WRINKLES AROUND THE MOUTH
Over time, the volume and definition of our lips fades, giving way to unwanted fine lines and wrinkles. The first signs of aging often appear around this area, meaning lip care should be essential to your everyday routine if you'd like to maintain youthful skin.
Here are some tips you should think about including in your day-to-day routine:
To activate cell regeneration and remove dead skin, make sure to exfoliate your lips at least once per week. In the winter, this is especially important because heaters and intense cold weather are the perfect duo for drying out your lips. The easiest way to exfoliate your lips? Apply a home made salt scrub onto your lips then use a tooth brush to brush the scrub into your lips in a back and forth motion.
Just like you remove makeup from your eyes before bed, removing lipstick or gloss is just as important when it comes to keeping your lips healthy and plump. Lipsticks can dry out your lips due to the ingredients, so use a makeup wipe or coconut oil to remove makeup and keep lips soft and smooth!
Many people develop small brown spots onto their lips due to overexposure to the sun. In addition, UV accelerates skin aging – especially on your lips. Be sure to apply a lip balm enriched with SPF to prevent damage from the sun.
There are many products on the market that specifically address the lines and wrinkles that surround your mouth. Apply these treatments around your mouth and onto your lips to prevent aging. Another trick? Apply your under eye cream onto your lips and laugh lines!
When heading out of the house, make sure you always carry a moisturizing lip balm with you in your bag or purse! Apply it on your lips throughout the day to keep them well hydrated.
