I am certainly not a beauty expert. What I do when compiling a beauty post is research, research, and research. I rely on experts and customer favorites. I try what they suggest and then find what works best for me personally and share my findings with you. What works for me, may not work for you. As we age our lips lose volume and definition and we gain those lovely little lines all around our mouth. For years I relied on a quick swipe of gloss and chapstick for lip care. Too many years in the sun and lack of care has forced me to try and do the best I can with what I have got. It is time to treat the skin around my mouth the same way I treat the rest of my skin. Here are my anti-aging lip care tips.
#1 Anti Aging Lip Care Tips-Exfoliate
My lips get extremely dry which accentuates the lines around the mouth issue. I have finally succumbed to exfoliating my lips regularly and it has made a huge difference. My pal Maryann makes her own. You can find her recipe here. She gave these as party favors at a recent luncheon. How cute are these?
If you don’t want to make your own there are scrubs for every budget. This is an item I don’t think you need to pay a lot of $$ for but here are some favorites.
#2 Anti Aging Lip Care Tips-Repair
There are numerous serums and treatments on the market. I am frankly too lazy to get that carried away. Many lip balms have ceramides and anti oxidant ingredients added to help heal and protect. Click on the links below for more information
Here are my favorites that work best for me.
I have the Kiehl’s Lip Balm on my nightstand currently. The Jack Black Lip Balm is another favorite. The Burts Bees I keep in my office drawer, and my makeup case. If I am not wearing lipstick I slather it on. The others come highly recommended but I personally haven’t tried them.
#3 Anti Aging Lip Care Tips- Protect
If you are gardening or spending any time outdoors, you will want to know the best lip care products with SPF. The Prevention article below is particularly interesting.
I hope these anti-aging tips for mature lips were helpful. If you haven’t read my post on the best lipstick and lip care products for mature lips read it here. If you love lipstick and lip care my two blogging buddies
Sandra @ Apart from My Art and Mary Ann from Classic Casual Home are sharing their favorites. Sandra is a lipstick junkie and we all want to look like Mary Ann (the girl next door), so hop over and check out their favs.
