Lips are barely ever involved in the conversation of anti-aging. The emphasis is always skewed towards the eyes, forehead, and everything else but.
It is therefore important to steer the conversation back in the right direction, and note that the volume and definition lost in your lips as you get on in years and the lines that appear around your mouth are very telling signs of aging.
Loss in volume and lines around the lips are predominantly caused by dryness, environmental contamination, and lifestyle choices (smoking). In more severe cases, discoloration of your lips might even occur, giving your lips an unpleasant shade of gray over red. They don’t sell that shade of lipstick anywhere, trust me.
Look Good, Filler Good
Another thing age and neglect do to our lips: thinning. Usually, a process preferred for your waistline, nature has a funny way of messing with us sometimes.
Thinning lips are the result of the cruel pull of gravity, and your body’s faltering ability to produce collagen, one of the key components in keeping your lips moist and plump in your younger days.
The lack of volume can also severely cripple your options when it comes to dolling yourself up. Applying lipstick on your lips might look nothing more than a neat little oval of red on your face, sans the volume.
Fillers have the ability to customize the ideal shape and volume of your lips to your desired liking, or as recommended by professionals. You’ll be surprised to see how many types of lips there actually are. “Full” is just a general option.
