Certain lifestyle changes can also aid you in the process of reducing the ugly lines. Ever wonder how Angelina Jolie manages to maintain such amazing pouty lips? It is not only through cosmetic treatments, but also through a regular maintenance of her habits and lifestyle. Always make it a point to use high quality products. At the same time, try to go for natural products and ingredients as far as possible.
One homemade product that can be used to treat these unsightly lines comprises of banana and honey. Make a paste of ripe bananas and honey, apply it on the wrinkled area and leave on for a period of about 10 minutes. Once firm, remove the paste and apply some good quality moisturizer.
Use creams and lotions that contain AHAs (alphahydroxy acids), as they are very effective in treating this condition. These acids are the derivatives of milk, sugarcane and some fruits and help scrub away any dead skin cells present on the skin surface. They also help in the process of regeneration of collagen, which fills in the area and pumps up any wrinkles, making them less obvious. Collagen also helps remove any free radicals present in the skin.
Wrinkle creams come in different shapes and formulas. Make it a point to go for the good quality ones and carefully follow the instructions written on the cover. However, for long term effects, you should use the cream for several months. These creams help by creating an illusion of less lip wrinkles, with special crystals to reflect the light.
Another great way to remove all the dead skin cells on the surface is by exfoliating your skin twice every week. As the dead cells are removed, new cells replace them, giving the skin a very smooth appearance. Also, the skin will be more ready to absorb any therapeutic cream, giving immediate and faster results. Even moisturizers are absorbed more easily, when the skin is properly hydrated.
Avoid excessive exposure to sunlight and extreme environmental conditions. The less you are exposed to the harmful rays of sunlight, the more quickly will new cell regenerate, replacing the old ones and the earlier will you get rid of the unsightly lip wrinkles.
