Target: LipsWanted: Fewer Lines, Fuller Pout
Like the skin on your face, the skin around your lips suffers from the loss of collagen and elastin. Unlike the rest of your face, however, the skin over the lips is very thin and fragile and therefore even more vulnerable to losing volume. As a result, you might start to see tiny lines appear around the border of your lips. If you smoke, the wrinkles will be more pronounced, as the constant puckering contributes to lines developing even faster.
Skin Saver: Look for lip creams that contain collagen-boosting ingredients (peptides are the most common). Also, volumizing products are can deliver results after just a few weeks.
Anti-aging beauty tip: Go darker! Rich lipstick shades in the berry family, for example, make your lips look fuller than neutral tones, Harkavi says.
