With simple but regular care, our lips can remain in great shape throughout the years. Even at a later age; a healthy lifestyle, common-sense lip care, along with potential use of subdermal injectables, can make our lips look plump, full and healthy for much longer than ever.
Whether male or female, lips are an essential part of our face, and they say a lot about who we are as individuals. Forming part of our mouth, they are often in motion, and their multiple uses mean that we must take great care of them in order to keep them looking good for as long as possible. What’s more, thanks to healthy routines and, where needed, subdermal filler usage, even aging lips can be replenished and can contribute to the general youthful aspect of the face later in life.
Even today, the standard for a feminine and seductive mouth is a warm smile with full and voluptuous lips. While some women are naturally blessed with plump lips, others who have thin lips, may feel short-changed by mother nature.
Whatever the reasons, lips should be taken great care of, because we eat with them and use them to speak and, many people wear lipstick on their lips throughout the day. However, lips are particularly fragile. The skin on the lips, along with eyelid skin, is much thinner than most of the skin we have covering our body, so it tends to age faster, since thin skin normally ages more quickly.
Other dangers loom on the horizon for lips: Since they are not covered as much as other parts of the skin, they are more exposed to external factors that can contribute to premature damage. To raise awareness and preserve our lips, there are 5 beauty tips provided in this post. Taking careful steps as part of our daily routine can allow our lips can remain youthful and plump-looking throughout the years.
Before delving into more detail, it is worth noting that dermatologists and plastic surgery professionals are usually faced with 2 kinds of requests when women visit their practices: The first type usually comes from women aged between 20 and 40 years old who claim that their lips are satisfactory, but wish to add fullness to their lips in order to make them look more attractive. The other type of request is from women aged over 50, who want to restore the original plump lips they had when they were younger.
Whatever the reasons, the no-nonsense beauty tips provided below will help women keep their lips looking full, increase their volume.
Moisturize your lips several times a day
Although it may seem obvious, many women do not moisturize their lips as much as the rest of their face, and this is mainly due to the fact that their lips are constantly in motion, and they tend to forget about them and take them for granted. However, our lip skin is thin and follows the same pattern as the rest of our skin i.e. lip skin cells are born and die just like the rest of our skin. As a result, regular and consistent moisturizing with lip balm, contributes to repairing the damaged skin cells and also helps protect the new cells that are forming. It is obvious that regularly moisturized lips will look healthier and appear plump and full.
Get help with antioxidants
Lips are extremely fragile, and visible damage such as fine lines and wrinkles around the lips are caused by aging and the presence of excess free radicals which are generated by damaged skin cells. In addition to removing these free radicals by using cleansing solutions when taking off lipstick, taking antioxidants is also advisable. Vitamin C and E are highly efficient antioxidants, and regular consumption of them over time will considerably minimize lip skin aging. These can be obtained by eating fresh fruit and veg, or through dietary supplements, depending on our lifestyles.
Protect your lips from UVA and UVB rays
As is the case with all skin exposed to outdoor light, the mouth and lips must also be protected against the harmful UVA and UVB rays that we are all exposed to everyday.
Much more harmful than UVB rays, UVA rays are very dangerous to our skin, including our lips. They contribute the most to skin aging, including the lip skin. Lips must be protected, whatever the weather, because contrary to popular belief, even cloudy weather will generate a lot of UVA rays, during both the hot and the cold seasons. Using a lip balm with added solar filter will protect your lips against the damages of UVA and UVB rays. Application of this lip balm should be repeated several times during the day on order to be fully effective, because eating and speaking prevents lip balm from staying on our lips very long.
Opt for a healthy lifestyle
Obviously, our skin as a whole and fragile skin such as our lips will benefit greatly from a healthy lifestyle. Getting plenty of sleep, drinking lots of water throughout the day and eating a balanced diet will greatly contribute to maintaining healthy-looking skin and lips. If possible, women should try not to wear lipstick every day, in order to let their lips rest and breathe. An effective lip balm will protect the lips against environmental factors such as UV rays and urban pollution. The damage done to lips by smoking cannot be underestimated. This damage is both from the inside, because tobacco smoking gives the skin a dull hue, and on the outside, because cigarettes are in direct physical contact with the lips and can lead to irritation or inflammation.
