It has been said that the eyes are the window to the soul, but the lips are the key to personality. Studies have shown a link between lip shape and personality, but no study is needed to show that lips, when not cared for, can age you. Your lips reveal a lot about you, let’s not allow them to reveal your age as well!
Because we’ve always got your back, we have compiled a list of 5 ways to address aging lips.
1. Moisturize Lips
Sometimes it’s the obvious, accessible options that make a great impact. Maintaining moisturized lips can prevent and reduce the appearance of fine lines and give an overall youthful glow. When choosing a lip moisturizer, we recommend that you pay careful attention to the ingredients, as on average, women will consume 4-9 pounds of lip treatments over their lifetimes. We love the Lilfox Gelsomino Luxury Lip Butter!
2. Hydrate From the Inside-Out
When your body is hydrated from the inside out, your lips reap the benefits. A hydrated body yields lips that are not only moisturized but that have more volume! You can achieve optimal hydration to keep lips plump and youthful by:
- Drinking plenty of water and adding electrolytes.
- Consuming foods high in collagen, such as bone broth, fish, organ meats, berries, and leafy greens) will keep lips plump and youthful!
- Undergoing regular IV therapy at Lakeside Medspa.
3. Lifestyle Changes
Seemingly insignificant daily habits build up to make a big difference. This is true in all of life, especially when it comes to signs of aging in delicate areas of the face such as the lips. Small things like smoking, drinking from straws, biting or chewing on your lips, and repetitive puckering break down the youthful structure of your lips. Slowly limiting these behaviors will start to slow and even reverse signs of aging!
While lip filler may conjure up pictures of large duck lips, it does so much more than that. Lip filler is valuable in the fight against signs of aging due to its ability to add hydration, restore lost volume, and recreate definition. Because hyaluronic acid filler can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water it is incredibly effective in providing a youthful, hydrated lip. Dr. Amelia K. Hausauer, a Dermatologic Surgeon, known for her ability to bring precise harmony to the face and body, calls lip filler “lip gloss in a syringe.”
A skilled injector armed with the right filler can provide a natural, youthful looking lip. It should also be noted that the kind of filler used greatly impacts the results. We offer a wide variety of filler options (such as Juvederm, Restylane, Versa, etc.) and would love to help you choose the one that will give you your goal lips!
Lips may be yet another telltale sign of aging, but with our help and small lifestyle changes, you can slow and even reverse signs of aging in your lips!
