A youthful appearance is the result of a succesful anti-aging skin care regime and a healthy diet. Regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, looking good and being healthy is the key to a long life. With both the eyes and lips, including the area that surrounds the lips being the most delicate skin on the face, special attention must be given to avoid fine lines and wrinkles from forming.
For starters, if you are a smoker, you need to quit immediately. Smoking cigarettes alone will cause premature aging for the simple reason that it will cause free radicals. Furthermore, the repeated action of taking a puff will cause wrinkles to form.
Always hydrate the lips. You can do this with chap stick, beeswax or lip balm. Olive oil can also be used which is a great way to restore moisture. Other oils that can be used are almond or coconut.
The area surrounding the lips must also be cared for. You can apply a dab of emu oil or the liquid from a vitamin E supplement on the area. Emu oil is especially good as it doesn’t block pores and is a great way to hydrate and moisturize skin. Either of these oils can successfully remove or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
If the wrinkles are too deep, you have other options. For example, there are plumping and tightening creams available, and also retinol containing ones. Laser and fillers such as Restalyn can help as well, as can surgical solutions.
The point is, regardless of how far gone your wrinkles are, it’s never too late to start treating them. This will improve them and will avoid new ones from developing.
