So, how do we combat this? Try these tips for younger lips:
Protect and plump: Don't think your lips are somehow immune to sun exposure; they can suffer from sunburn, too. In fact, excessive exposure has been linked to lip cancer. So, shield your lips from the sun year-round by wearing a broad spectrum lip product.
Boost the good, battle the bad. Experts recommend products that contain vitamins and antioxidants, because they encourage new collagen development to keep lips full and soft. These ingredients also defend against free radicals, which damage skin cells. Look for ingredients like shea and cocoa butter, vitamin E and grapeseed oil.
Beauty lift: For an easy trick to create fuller lips, line slightly outside your natural lip with a lip pencil and color in your lips; then apply lipstick and lip gloss. The shine from the gloss reflects light and creates the illusion of fuller lips.
Peel away the lines: Particularly effective for the upper lip, chemical peels differ in type and intensity, providing women with a number of options. Light peels work on surface skincare problems, whereas deeper peels actually remove layers of skin that show damage from problems like acne, injuries, photodamage & hyperpigmentation.
