You take care of your body with the goal of looking your best. You work out regularly and enjoy a toned, trim figure. There is only one problem. You don’t want thin lips. If you look in the mirror and it seems like your lips are disappearing, you are not alone. This is a common condition that comes with aging and sun exposure. You might wonder why your mouth has lost its plumpness and is turning into two thin lines. It happens all the time, no matter what you do for your daily regimen. One day, you will see a set of thin lips when you look at your reflection and wonder how it happened.
Why Do Your Lips Become Thin?
It comes down to collagen production in your body. Think of collagen as the support system for your skin. It gives your skin firmness and fullness. As you get older, collagen production drops. Even if you are only in your twenties, you could see a decrease in collagen production if you are exposed to the sun without any protection.
Regardless of why it’s happening, it can be really frustrating to watch your lips doing a disappearing act. You want those luscious lips that you see on movie stars, not thin slashes that make you look like you aren’t happy.
What Can You Do About Your Thin Lips?
If the loss of fullness in your lips is due to sun exposure, you can try wearing lip balm with sun protection or covering your lips with lipstick. If your thin lips are due to aging or you simply want more volume in your pout, you can have dermal fillers injected into your lips. They’ll plump up your pout without an invasive procedure. You don’t have to settle for thin lips anymore.
