Lip Lines

Lines around the lips happen as skin thins from sun exposure. Thin skin here folds into creases and lines due to the circular and very busy muscle that surrounds the lips. People who often purse their lips, such as smokers, are even more prone to lip lines – they develop deeper lines, and earlier -- but everyone is likely to eventually develop some lines around the lips over the years. We women develop lip lines sooner than men due to our thinner skin structure.

Skin care can reduce the appearance of these lines. Products that brighten skin and exfoliate dead, dull cells will reduce shadowing and increase its reflection of light to improve appearance. Real reduction in the structure of the lines requires strong professional levels of the three ingredients proven to stimulate collagen renewal:

  1. retinoids (retinol and prescription tretinoin),
  2. glycolic acid, and
  3. vitamin C.

Hydrated skin will be plumper, making the lines appear less deep. Pick a moisturizer matched to your skin type and consider adding ingredients with extra water-binding capacity such as PCA, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin. Of course, since sun exposure is the main culprit in causing skin thinning and lip lines, a broad spectrum sunscreen needs to be used daily – 356 days a year from sun up to sun down, as skin-thinning UV rays are present from dawn to dusk all year.

Pick products with these ingredients that match your skin type. Add antioxidant-rich products to boost skin antioxidant levels to fight skin-damaging free radicals caused by solar and environmental stressors. Consider adding a Clarisonic Brush to your skin care cleansing step to help product ingredients penetrate better. Lastly, stubborn lip lines may require a trip to the dermatologist or plastic surgeon for some of the fun tricks we use in our offices to combat this frustrating part of the skin aging process.
