Lip Wrinkles

What are Lip Wrinkles?

Lip wrinkles are small raised bumps or pimples on your lips. They may appear anywhere on your face, but they tend to form around the edges of your mouth and cheeks. These bumps usually appear when there is a combination of factors such as age, stress, smoking habits, dieting and other health problems that cause dryness in the skin area. Some people have them all over their faces while others only notice them near their mouths. There are many reasons why these bumps occur. One reason could be due to aging, but it is not always true. People with wrinkles may experience them because of genetics, hormonal changes, or even a combination of both.

How do You Get Rid of Lip Wrinkles?

There are several things that can be done to remove lip wrinkles including: using a cream or gel; applying a peel-off mask; and laser treatments.

The best thing to do if you want to keep your lip wrinkles is to avoid anything that causes dryness in the skin area. Avoiding cigarettes, alcohol, spicy foods, and sunburns will help prevent them from forming. If you are trying to lose weight then avoiding fatty foods like fried food and fast food will help. Also avoid using harsh chemicals such as hair straighteners and depilatories.

There are several over the counter products that help get rid of lip wrinkles. Some popular ones on the market are Retin-A, Alpha Hydroxy Cream, and Vaseline. If you use Retin-A then you can also expect your skin to become dry and peel during the first few weeks of using it. If you would rather not deal with this then you may want to try the Alpha Hydroxy Cream or the Vaseline.

You should see results within a couple of weeks.

If you really want to prevent wrinkles in the future then you should make it a habit to always apply a good quality skin moisturizer to your face and lips after cleansing. You should also apply it before bedtime as this is when your skin repairs itself the most. Another good way to fight off wrinkles is to apply aloe vera gel. This product is very popular and can be found at most drug stores or even grocery stores.

It will soothe, moisturize, and cool the skin.

One thing that a lot of people notice is that they get wrinkles at the corners of their mouth when they talk a lot or smile a lot. This is very common and usually does not require any type of attention unless it is severe or painful.

Laser treatments are also another way to get rid of lip wrinkles but it is an extreme measure and should only be done if other methods do not work. With this method, a laser beam is used to remove the wrinkle or wrinkles.

No matter which way you decide to get rid of your lip wrinkles, it is always best to start early rather than later.

What Causes Lip Wrinkles?

The main cause of lip wrinkles is due to dryness. This dryness can be caused by many things such as drinking alcohol, smoking, or eating foods that are not good for you. Other causes of lip wrinkles are the sun and the wind. If you do not protect your lips with a good quality lip balm or petroleum jelly then you will most likely develop at least a few fine lines around your mouth.

How To Get Rid Of Lip Wrinkles?

There are many different things that you can do to help get rid of lip wrinkles. Most of these things are inexpensive and can be found in your own home.

One of the best things that you can do is to stop doing whatever it is that is causing your lip wrinkles in the first place. For example if you smoke then you should quit smoking as soon as possible. This is easier said than done but if you really want to get rid of your lip wrinkles then this is what you need to do.

Another thing you should do to help get rid of your lip wrinkles is to drink a lot of water every day. This helps hydrate your skin from the inside out. You can also apply moisturizer to your lips as well. Some people like to use petroleum jelly but you can also buy specially formulated lip balms designed to help keep your lips soft and smooth.

Another thing you can do is to not spend a lot of time in the sun. Not only does this dry out your lips but it also speeds up the aging process in general. When you are going to be in the sun for more than a couple of minutes then it would be a good idea to apply sunscreen on your lips as well as the rest of your body.

Smoking, drinking alcohol, and exposure to the sun are all things that speed up the aging process. Sometimes however even if you are taking excellent care of your body, you can still get lip wrinkles. This might be caused by heredity or perhaps an illness you had in the past that dried up your lips. No matter what the cause of your lip wrinkles, they are still there and you want them to go away.

So what do you do?

There are a variety of ways that you can get rid of lip wrinkles and each one has its own benefits and downfalls. Some methods are inexpensive while other methods are expensive. Some methods take a long time while others take effect immediately. No matter what your preference is there is sure to be something on this list that will help you get rid of your lip wrinkles.

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to get rid of lip wrinkles is by using petroleum jelly. This is the same jelly that you have probably had since you were a baby. It is a clear jelly-like substance that when applied to the skin helps to protect it from external elements such as wind and sun.

When you apply petroleum jelly on your lips, the jelly fills in all of the creases and cracks thus making the wrinkles less noticeable. The only real downside to using petroleum jelly for lip wrinkles is the fact that most people do not like the way it feels and tastes. In addition it can be messy and hard to apply especially if you have limited mobility in your hands or fingers.

If you are looking for a more convenient way to apply petroleum jelly to your lips then you might want to try one of the many brands of lip balm that are available on the market today. The main reason why people use lip balm is because most of them taste good. You can actually find lip balm that tastes like fruit and candy.

The only real disadvantage to using lip balm is the fact that most of them are rather expensive and you have to keep re-applying it quite frequently. In addition some of the more highly scented or flavored lip balms can cause problems for people with sensitive skin.

One thing you can try is to use a combination of petroleum jelly and lip balm. You can apply a layer of petroleum jelly first then follow that up with a layer of lip balm. The jelly will help the lip balm from drying out your skin and lips as quickly while the lip balm helps make the jelly easier to apply.

If you are looking for an alternative method of applying medication to your lips, you might want to consider using a medicated lip patch. These are small medicated pads that you place on your lip and wear for a period of time.

The company Lip Plumping Patch claims that you will experience immediate lip plumping after wearing their product for a mere 15 minutes. The best part about using a lip patch is the fact that you do not have to apply it as often as you would have to with lip balm or jelly.

Some common side effects that most lip patches cause are a burning or tingling sensation. In extreme cases the medicated ingredients in the patch can cause an allergic reaction which may result in swelling, rash, or difficulty breathing.

If you have tried everything else on this list and you still have not found what works for you, you might want to consider having lip injections or laser lipolysis. These two methods will provide you with instant results that most people find to be very effective.

The drawback that most people have with these methods is the price. They are both rather expensive and neither one will make you look ten years younger Overnight. You will have to continue to treat your lips in order to maintain the look you desire.

25 August 2014 – Wednesday

While there was a lot of stuff about the maintenance of firearms and how to make explosives, there were also some things that I just didn’t remember from before, even when I tried to “un-forget” it. Like the time when I was probably 13 and I snuck away with my dad’s shotgun and went squirrel hunting with Ben. (His dad had a gun cabinet with a double-barreled shotgun in it.) I think I actually managed to bag two or three squirrels with my little hunting trip, but I don’t remember ever getting in trouble for it.

(I know I didn’t get the boot because I kept sneaking out of the house over the next couple years!)

I spent half the day yesterday reading about guns and explosions and stuff.

Anyway, I have class!

Oh, one thing I found very interesting. It appears that the proper way to hold a gun is with your fingers wrapped lightly around the handle so that if you lose grip, it will not fall to the ground and possibly go off. I have been holding them with my whole hand wrapped around for as long as I can remember. That can’t be good!

Also, I have to turn in my timeline for my psych paper tonight. I think I will try to make it kind of funny.

Later!

Well, I turned in my timeline with no less than 54 tabs and sub-tabs, of course. (That’s how many there were supposed to be!) At least now I can focus on other homework, like the paper! Which I did tonight.

And now, it is late, and I must sleep!

Today’s music: “Dumb Waiters” by The Dead Milkmen, “Thug Love” by 3Oh!3, and “Don’t Let’s Start” by They Might Be Giants.

Random News: I was talking with a friend yesterday, and it turns out that she is a fellow fan of History’s Mysteries! So that’s two of us now.

Random Info: The word “psychopath” first appeared in the Oxford English Dictionary in the 1800’s.

Last night’s dinner with my cousin was very pleasant. It is nice to see her again!

Current Music: “Far” by Mindless Self Indulgence

Today’s Mood: Hungry!

Today’s Symptom: Palpitations

Current Food: Pita bread stuffed with tuna salad, and some red vines.

Today’s Adventure: Made a lot of progress on my psych paper, but I am still not finished! Oh well. Also got in a good walk, saw my cousin (and her boyfriend) for a nice visit, and now I am going to bed!

Today I am thankful for: My cousin and her boyfriend! (Her also! I am not unreasonable! Well, not too unreasonable…

Actually I am pretty unreasonable, but I still love her! Uh… I think… Whatever. Point is, I love her! ^_^)

Wow, looking back at that entry from two months ago, I sound really down. It is strange how things can change so much in such a short amount of time. I guess that is why I am in a great mood now, because things have changed for the better!

I made a lot of progress on my psych paper last night, probably more than I would have if I had gone out or something. I still would like to go out tonight, but I think I will hold off since I made so much progress. It is a nice night anyway, so it would be a shame to be cooped up inside while the weather is so nice.

Also, I didn’t really mention it before, but I was accepted into the Honors College! I still have to pay the tuition, but at least I got in! I guess that means my GPA must have been good enough for them. Either that or they just took everyone who applied…

Either way, I’m in!

I’ve been thinking about my future a lot lately. I really would like to be a writer of some kind. Not a novelist or anything too grand like that, but maybe a writer of science fiction or video game scripts or something. (I do play on the university’s Warcraft III and Starcraft teams, so I am no stranger to writing scripts!

^_^) I don’t know how likely that is to happen, but I figure it is worth a shot since I have nothing to lose.

So what is there to do in this town anyway? Well, I guess there is the public library; they are supposed to have everything, right?

And there are also little coffee shops where aspiring artists like to hang out. I should try to find one of those. Or maybe a nice secluded park somewhere…
