Laugh lines, frown lines, smoker’s lines, ugh. While these unsightly lines that can form above your mouth might seem inevitable, it’s nice to know that they can be delayed or even erased to keep your mouth and face looking healthy and youthful for a long, long time.
Your mouth is one of the most watched facial features, literally the center of people’s focus as you speak, laugh, and share thoughts and emotions. But lip lines can take away from the beauty of your face, and zap your confidence as well. But what exactly are lip lines and how can you prevent or get rid of them?
What are Lip Lines?
Lip lines are small wrinkles that form just above the upper lip. They often appear vertically from the top lip to the nose. Make a face in the mirror like you’ve eater a sour lemon and you can see a preview of how they might look.
Lip lines are not to be confused with laugh lines or smile lines, which are the horizontal creases that run from the sides of your nose to the edges of your lips. While these are also signs of aging that can occur, they are different from lip lines.
The most common reason for lip lines to occur is from aging. As skin ages, collagen, elastin and estrogen production goes down, making it easier for wrinkles to form. Normal wear-and-tear from things like smoking and drinking through a straw also increase the likelihood of developing lip lines.
