Lines & Wrinkles around the Mouth
Nasolabial (laugh) Lines: These run from the bottom of the nose to the corners of the mouth and become more pronounced with laughing.
Marionette Lines: Found at the corners of the mouth, these lines give the face a downturned appearance, which can look serious, sad or angry.
Feather Lines: Theses are fine, vertical wrinkles on and around the lip lines. Frequently puckering lips, drinking from straws and chewing on the inside of the lips can also contribute to feather lines.
Factors that Contribute to Lip Ageing
Lacks the same protective outer layer found in other areas of the skin
Lips lack oil and sweat glands along with melanin, our natural sun protectant.
Saliva is the only source of moisture, which also dries out natural oils from the skin around the lips
Over time the lips can lose volume and their natural "redness
Repetitive movements such as smoking and constantly drinking through a straw
Facial expressions like smiling, pursing, frowning, etc.
Excessive dryness/constant dehydration as moisture evaporates from the lips much faster than facial skin
inadequate sun protection, damaging UV rays can increase collagen breakdown.
