How to Prevent Lip Wrinkles
Fine lines or wrinkles around the lips can be tricky to treat once they appear. However, there are plenty of preventative measures you can take now to avoid them for as long as possible. Here are some tips: (1) You may want to stop using straws or any movement that causes you to pucker your mouth. The repeated action of puckering the lips can encourage the breakdown of collagen and elasticity, causing fine lines to appear. (2) Stop smoking. Mouth movement aside, nicotine constricts blood vessels, restricting the flow of nutrients and oxygen to skin cells. (3) Never skip applying sunscreen. Wearing sunscreen is incredibly important to prevent wrinkles around the mouth. Make sure you apply your SPF evenly on your face and reapply if you spend time outdoors.
