1) Eat Lots Of Antioxidant-Rich Foods To Treat Lip Lines
When treating lip lines and other wrinkles, many women turn first to topical creams. As we’ll share later in this article, a good serum is one of the best treatments for mouth wrinkles. But you can improve the wrinkle-fighting power of everything you do by improving your diet. Doing so can help your body work at 100 percent to keep your skin smooth and healthy. Eating lots of antioxidant-rich foods is a powerful way to treat existing lip lines and to prevent new lip lines from forming. Free radicals absorbed from your environment, the sun, and your diet can serve to break down the collagen and elastin that keep your skin smooth. You can neutralize those free radicals and prevent them from causing damage by getting plenty of antioxidants in your diet. Antioxidant-rich foods include berries, broccoli, carrots, and spinach. To get the most wrinkle-fighting benefits from these antioxidant powerhouses, try including two to three servings of each in your daily diet. Mix some berries with a cup of yogurt or whip up a berry smoothie for a delicious breakfast treat. For lunch, try combining spinach, carrot, and other salad fixin’s to reap the wrinkle-fighting rewards. Then for dinner, include a side of steamed or raw broccoli with your regular fare.
2) Protect Your Skin From The Sun
One of the best things you can do to treat and prevent lip lines is to protect the sensitive skin around your mouth with sunscreen. Remember the free radicals we mentioned above? The sun’s UV rays are probably the biggest source of those skin-damaging, wrinkle-causing atoms. But you can fight back against the sun’s UV rays get to your skin. All it takes is an SPF 30 or 45 sunscreen to keep your skin protected, healthy, and radiant. Be sure to apply your sunscreen before you leave the house in the morning and then every two hours thereafter. And don’t worry about ultra-high SPF numbers. An SPF of 30 protects against 97 percent of the sun’s harmful rays, while SPF 45 protects against 98 percent. Even the ultra-high — and often ultra-expensive — SPFs don’t get much better than that.
3) Treat Lip Lines With A Moisturizer Very few things make lip lines more visible than dry skin. Dr. Ellen Marmur, a dermatologist in New York City and author of Simple Skin Beauty, equates the surface of your skin to the paint job on a car. If the paint is cracked, the metal underneath can rust. Similarly, if the top layer of your skin is dry and cracked, the sensitive skin underneath can be damaged. This damage can lead to lip lines and wrinkles. To prevent dry, cracked skin and the lip lines that go with it, be sure to apply a moisturizer at least once a day, preferably in the morning. The moisturizer helps maintain your skin’s water content by mixing with natural lipids to form a protective barrier against outside elements like dirt, wind, and UV rays. This protective layer keeps your skin healthy, radiant, and wrinkle-free.
4) Revamp Your Makeup Routine close up of content woman turned to the side and facing camera Try adding the tricks below to your makeup routine for a quick-fix to help conceal your lip lines. Add A Primer After massaging a moisturizer onto your skin, add a primer before applying your foundation. When you apply primer as a base for your makeup, it reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Use A Light Foundation If you add heavy coverage on your fine lines, especially lip lines, it actually draws more attention to your wrinkles. Using a light foundation and lightly tapping a concealer on your wrinkles and dark spots are the best ways to reduce appearances of wrinkles in your makeup routine. Avoid Powder Avoid using powder in your makeup routine if possible. The powder can settle into fine lines, making the appearance of wrinkles even more prominent. If you do use powder, just lightly dust on some loose mineral powder. Treat Your Lips If you have lip lines, the color you use on your lips can easily bleed into your fine lines. Avoid a lip stain and, instead, use a lip pencil and a gloss. Line your lips with a lip liner that matches your lip color. When using a sheer gloss, dab it gently in the center of your lips. Your color will stay in place and add shine just in the right place!
