How to get rid of lip wrinkles

Those nasty lip wrinkles! Vertical lines around your lips that happen as our skin ages. They get worse if you frequently make a puckering motion with your lips such as when smoking a cigarettes, drinking from a straw and whistling. 
Collagen and elastin production in our skin decreases as we age causing the skin to line, wrinkle and sag:( First of all, quit smoking. Cigarettes breakdown collagen causing lots of wrinkles! 
Ditch the straws and try not to whistle so much. 

Time to hit the Med Spa! 

An injectable dermal filler, such as Juvederm, can fill in the lines and increase collagen production. Fillers temporarily smooth the lines maybe up to a year. A doctor performs this service.

You can also smooth them by having a laser treatment. Lasers resurface the skin, tighten and build collagen. A trained nurse, esthetician or doctor perform laser services.

Home treatment:

There are a few things you can do to at home to improve the appearance of lip wrinkles.

1. Use a serum and moisturizer that contain hyaluronic acid to plump up the skin. Peptides, ceramides and retinol are also good anti aging ingredients to look for in skin care products. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Hydra Pure Firming Serum contains hyaluronic acid, peptides and lots of anti oxidants. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare

2. Exfoliate. Removing dull dead skin cells always makes the skin look younger and fresher. Try a cleansing brush such as Clarisonic.

Try a soft gel peel to exfoliate. Yonka Gommage 305 (for dry skin)  and 305 (for oily skin) are an excellent soft peels. 

You can also mix up you own sugar scrub to exfoliate with.

Brown Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe

1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 Teaspoon Olive Oil

Mix brown sugar and olive oil together in a small bowl until smooth. Wet your lips. Apply scrub to your lips. Massage the lips and lip line in a circular motion for 30 seconds. Rinse, pat dry and apply moisturizer.

3. Use sunscreen daily. Ultra Violet radiation from the sun ages our skin and causes wrinkles. A BB cream is great for daily use. BB creams are multi purpose skin care creams that contains sunscreen.

4. Finally, always drink lots of water to keep the skin hydrated....with no straw of course:)
