Wrinkles may appear on skin in several parts of the body, some more obvious than others. Apparently, once you start having wrinkles around the mouth area, it could age you more. As wrinkles may inevitably show sooner or later in life, one couldn’t do so much than defer their emergence with the aid of treatment. But the antidote does not have to be in the form of expensive creams or dermatological procedures as there are readily available and more cost efficient remedies for wrinkles right at home.
What Causes Wrinkles
We could point at several factors that could cause wrinkles, whether on the mouth area or on any skin part. Photo-aging due to frequent exposure to UVA and UVB rays is often a primary reason, so is pollution and environmental stress. How fast one may acquire wrinkles could be hereditary. Smoking is also a major cause of wrinkles especially around the mouth and this contributes to wrinkle in two ways: first is by having an adverse effect on blood circulation, and second by way of lip pursing. Cosmetic procedures such as threading and waxing (common on the moustache region) by way of the tugging and stretching action could, in the long run, contribute in the appearance of wrinkles. Referred to as perioral wrinkles, these skin creases around the mouth could also be signaled by the diminishing reserves of elastin and collagen in the skin, which are both supposedly responsible in keeping the skin supple and youthful.
Knowing the proven causes of wrinkles comes with the advantage of knowing, too, how we could rid of them. As we are targeting, in particular, mouth wrinkles here, the following are key: hydration/moisturizing and sunblock. Taking in the recommended amount of water daily is hydration basic but to further keep from the formation of wrinkles, be sure to apply moisturizers around the lip area too. Sloughing dead surface cells off your lips by using a clean soft cloth or a toothbrush will help too. Make sure to gloss your lips with SPF afterwards especially when you would have an activity which entails sun exposure. It is also advised to get enough rest and quit smoking.
The remedies to mouth wrinkles need not be expensive. Solutions are available in your own cupboard. Baking soda, cornmeal and the common sugar could be rubbed on then rinsed off the lips to moisturize them. Egg whites may also be used as a mask. Simply apply, leave on to dry then rinse off. The same goes for the essential oil rich avocado. Mash the flesh, apply as a mask after cleansing the skin, leave on for around 20 to 25 minutes then rinse off. A mixture of sugar cane sap and ground turmeric is also an effective cure for wrinkles around the mouth area. Just apply, leave to dry and wash off with water.
Having knowledge of the causes for mouth wrinkles, their prevention and the more practical remedies to eliminating them wouldn’t just help clear those wrinkles off but also help clear our minds from stressing about their unwanted yet unavoidable emergence.
