Perfect Lips for a Younger Look
Perfect Lips? What does that mean? Well, it doesn’t mean they have to be huge to be perfect! It just means making the best of what you naturally have....Keeping your them young and smooth and prevent them from aging is the key.
Since your mouth is a very prominent feature of your face – next to your eyes – it’s important you keep a head of lip wrinkles as they develop.
As we age, many of us tend to concentrate on eye wrinkles and sagging facial jowls - but often neglect to realize that smooth beautiful lips can make you look younger too.
Thinning, dry, peeling, wrinkled………….this is what happens to our lips as we age.....and this is far from perfect! Women tend to forget how vulnerable the lips are to the aging process! We need to care and protect them just as we would with the rest of our face.
Smooth, soft, hydrate lips can make your face look younger. As can a firm, wrinkle free, mouth. So follow these tips for younger perfect mouth:
Basic Anti- Aging Tip – For Perfect Lips
Since the dermis on your lips are thin and sensitive – it’s important to protect them from environmental factors such as sun damage and smoking. It’s important to apply a sunscreen formulated for the lips everyday and several times per day if you’re going to be outside.
Unlike the rest of your face, the sunscreen on your lips fades away quickly due to licking your lips, eating, or drinking….etc. So make sure to apply often or use a lipstick with build in SPF.

Basic Anti-Aging Tip - Naturally Perfect Lips
For beautiful perfect lips you must exfoliate regularly to get rid of dead, dry cells. Make a paste mixture with olive oil, emu oil, or almond oil and brown sugar. Mix the two until you get a nice paste like texture. Rub this paste all over and around your mouth gently. This will remove dead cells and help to soften and hydrate them too.
Now is the perfect time to moisturize well. Try applying a coat of emu oil (my favorite) after your rinse, but before you dry them. This will help hydrate even more. And removing dead cells will enable your your moisturizers to be better absorbed -- giving them a plumper softer look.
Basic Anti-Aging Tip - For Younger Lips
Younger lips are hydrated. Use a lip balm, lip gloss, or a hydrating lipstick daily……..especially one with a color that suits/compliments your complexion tone. Try this anti-aging lip gloss recipe. It takes minutes to make -- and I'm sure you'll love it.
As far as lipsticks go -- I think a glossy hydrating lipstick is a perfect combination - especially in a light plum/reddish color. This makes my face look brighter and more awake. So don’t be afraid to experiment with color. Especially if you’ve had a long night and little sleep!!
Want another tip for perfect lips? Think lip exercises. A complete face exercise program can help lift the corners of your mouth, reduce mouth wrinkles, vertical lines, reduce those pesky corner mouth pouches, firm up your chin, and reduce sagging jowls.
Here is one sample perfect lip exercise to reduce vertical lip lines (courtesy of Carolyn’s Facial Fitness): 1. Place your index and middle fingertips from each hand on each side (to the left and right) of the center of your mouth. And rest your thumbs under the tip of your chin. 2.Curl your upper lip over your top teeth and then slide your two fingers down your lips towards the corner of your mouth….while counting to 5.3. Repeat this 10 times.
4. You can repeat this movement for lower lip wrinkles too. Just place your fingers on your lower lip, while curling your lower lip over your bottom teeth. Then slide your fingers up toward the corner of your mouth….counting to 5.5. Repeat this 10 times.
