How to Protect Your Lips From Aging

Let’s face it - no one likes getting older. As you age, your body goes through changes. The wrinkles on your face and lips become more prominent, your hair starts to grey, and you may feel like your skin lacks the same youthful glow you know and love. Don't worry - everyone gets older. It's just part of life! 

The good news is with a buttoned-up skincare routine and the right lip care products, you can combat signs of aging and keep your skin looking and feeling your best. 

To help you protect your lips from aging, we put together a list of ways to keep them soft, supple, hydrated, and thriving!

Here's what you'll need:

Keep a Lip Balm Close By

Whether your lips feel overly dry or just want to maintain a supple touch throughout the day, you should always have lip balm by your side. Keeping your lips hydrated is key to preventing cracks and dryness. To prevent signs of aging, you’ll want to look for lip balms formulated with nutrient-rich ingredients that the delicate skin can benefit from.

On the hunt for a new lip balm? You can't go wrong with our Lip Butter. This nutrient-rich blend features vitamin E, honey, and aloe vera. Together the ingredients can boost your complexion and smooth fine lines and wrinkles - so your lips can maintain that same youthful complexion you know and love!

Exfoliate With a Lip Scrub 

If you‘re constantly battling dry, flaky skin on your lips, incorporate a lip scrub into your lip care routine. Lip scrubs can help you buff away dead skin cells and make room for new growth. This will keep your lips soft and prevent wrinkles and fine lines from forming. 

You also want to exfoliate regularly to ensure the nutrients in your go-to lip balm penetrate deep into the delicate skin on your lips.

Apply SPF to Your Lips

SPF is a must-have for any skincare routine. Every time you step outside, your skin is exposed to harmful UVB rays. These rays can lead to fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and wrinkles. 

The worst part? The skin on your lips is fragile and delicate. If you put SPF on your entire face, except your lips, your lips could suffer. 

You'll want to apply SPF 30 or higher. If you spend all day in the sun, reapply every two hours. There are also lip balms and lip products formulated with SPF that can help you stay protected throughout the day. 

Adjust Your Diet 

A diet jam-packed with anti-aging foods can help prevent signs of premature aging and help you maintain your youthful glow. Anti-aging foods contain antioxidants, healthy fats, proteins, and nutrients that the body needs to keep our skin soft and looking its best. 

Here are a few to add to your diet:

  • Blueberries 
  • Papaya
  • Broccoli 
  • Nuts
  • Romaine Lettuce 

Always make sure you're getting enough water throughout the day. It's recommended that women drink at least 11.5 cups of water a day, and men should drink 15.5.

Keep Your Lips Hydrated

Hydration is key to maintaining the natural beauty of your lips. Without hydration, your lips will feel dry, chapped skin. The skin will flake off, and it could even lead to irritation and inflammation. 

While you should always carry a lip balm by your side, you should also consider incorporating supplemental lip care products for an extra boost of hydration.

Lip Masks provide your lips with that extra dose of hydration that will keep them healthy and youthful. With our Wonderful Lip Mask, you can take hydration to a new level. This formula contains a invigorating blend of vitamin E and jojoba oil. Both ingredients work to moisturize, hydrate, and revive your tired pout. 

For the best results, you'll want to use a lip mask as part of your day and nighttime routine.
