Signs of ageing appear on every part of our body, including our lips. The skin on your lips is very delicate and if you notice wrinkles appear on your lips, do not freak out. Turns out, ageing is not the only reason that causes lip wrinkles – smoking, UV exposure and constant lip movements are also to be blamed.
But no matter what the cause, we are here to help you get rid of lip wrinkles. First things first, stop smoking because smoking creates prominent creases that are difficult to get rid of. However, if you do not smoke then follow these three steps below to get soft, supple and younger-looking lips.
We have said this several times before and we will say it again – exfoliating your lips is as important as exfoliating any other part of your body. Lip product residue does not wash off easily with water. Hence, it is necessary to scrub your lips every three days. It will get rid of the dryness and any makeup residue sitting on your lips.
The key to keeping your skin, hair and lips looking young and healthy is by moisturising it regularly. Apply vitamin E oil on your lips every day or simply use a lip balm that contains this nourishing ingredient such as the Vaseline Lip Therapy Original to keep your lips soft, supple and smooth. It’s also necessary to apply sunscreen on your lip to prevent them from the harmful UV rays.
03. Stay hydrated
Other than external hydration and prevention, staying internally hydrated is also important. Drink plenty of water every day, eat fruits and vegetables with high water content to keep your skin plump and youthful. Your lips and hands are the first areas to show signs of dehydration. Therefore, drink enough water to eliminate dryness and wrinkles from your lips and other parts of the body.
