This Is How You Can Keep Your Lips Young-Looking

Your lips are among the first places that display aging signs. Among some major changes in your lips, the lines circling your mouth and the lessening volume are possibly the first signs of old age. Despite that, you tend to overlook them and leave them out of your anti-aging treatments. According to some experts, most lips lose their definition and volume with time. However, lines and wrinkles are common in the case of those who have pale skin, are smokers, and are exposed to the sun quite often. You can also notice the lines in those who purse their lips while they speak and are regular smokers. Aside from these, there are other issues as well, which you need to address. Below are some tricks that might help you to anti-age your lips.

Lip Serums and Balms

There are a few lip balms that boast of anti-aging ingredients. Verso’s lip serum is known to possess a derivative of the powerful ingredient named retinol, which boosts the production of collagen and helps in alleviating dark spots.  The main issue with retinol is that it irritates when you apply it to the lips directly. However, Verso has a formula that consists of Retinol 8, considered to be a gentle derivative. Retinol 8 is indispensable in diminishing the fine lines that appear around your mouth as you age.

Dr. Macrene’s Actives High-Performance Lip Filler Treatment comprises hyaluronic acid, peptides, ceramides, powerful hydrators such as coconut oil, and more than 20 antioxidants. It would leave your lips to appear fuller and more natural than it would usually would if you take injections. StackedSkin’s Hydrating Lip Peel is one product that exfoliates the topmost layer of your skin chemically to unveil a softer and smoother pout. Nightly Lip Treatment from Dermalogica, Volume Enhancing Lip Serum from Lancer Skincare, and Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy from Fresh are other effective anti-aging products for your lips.

Lasers and Peels

A chemical peel or a laser treatment is effective in treating fine lines and also helps in getting rid of the unwanted pigmentation around your lips. Have you ever wondered why you tend to develop the lines? The muscles encircling your mouth, compress the skin that lies over your lips. Chemical peels and lasers can boost the tone and texture and diminish the appearance of those fine lines. Some dermatologists recommend Clear + Brilliant laser.

Aside from that, they also suggest a chemical peel that should contain alpha-hydroxy acids and couple it up with a skincare regimen boosted with a hydroquinone derivative or kojic acid. Additionally, experts have also been suggesting micro-needling. The procedure crates injuries on the skin around your lips. It thereby boosts the production of collagen.


There is a popular misconception that people avail lip fillers to create bigger and fuller lips, somewhat on the lines of Kylie Jenner. The border of your lip tends to lose its definition with age. You can treat this with fillers, which are effective in bringing back the volume. It thus restores the structure of the skin around your mouth.

If you over-treat, you might end up having duck lips. However, with subtle treatments, you can give your lips and the skin surrounding it, the right kind of definition. Hyaluronic acid injections such as Juvederm, Volbella, and Restylane Silk are rather fruitful in bringing back defined, younger-looking lips. A few drops of Botox can soften the muscles surrounding your mouth.

Non-invasive Lip Plumper

If you don’t want to endure the pain of getting lip injections to get a fuller pout, you can always try out lip plumping products that boast of ingredients known to swell your lips temporarily. Neutrogena’s MoistureSmooth Color Stick happens to be a lip crayon that has a moisturizing texture. It softens the wrinkles encircling your lips. You can also use this product to line your lips. They would automatically make them look fuller. Fresh Sugar Coconut Hydrating Lip Balm, Dior Addict Lip Glow Color Reviving Lip Balm, and Kopari Coconut Lip Glossy are some of the popular products.

Remember that the skin around your lips needs the same care as the skin of other parts of your body. When you start neglecting that part, your lips lose all the shine and volume as time passes by.
