What happens to lips as we get older?
Whilst lip size and shape are genetically determined, as we age, the decreased production of collagen and elastin molecules and naturally occurring Hyaluronic Acid causes lips to loose their volume and become thinner. This can start to happen as early as the late 20’s and 30’s!
Lifestyle factors can also play a part in ‘premature’ lip thinning, so:
- Avoid straws and puckering your lips
- Stay Hydrated
- Use oil based lip Products
- Don’t smoke
- Use a lip stick or lip product with an SPF
- Include plenty of protein, Vitamin C and Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet.
What else can we do?
Medical options include injectable lip fillers to replace and stimulate the lost Hyaluronic Acid. The new, advanced filler products are so soft and smooth and consist of natural Hyaluronic Acid and often Lidocaine anaesthetic which numbs the lips as it’s injected.
