Watch your lips

When it comes to aging, most people focus on reducing wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, cheeks and mouth, but it is also important to take care of your lips.  The skin around the lips is highly sensitive and therefore more susceptible to damage from harsh weather and UV rays.  Even stress and poor nutrition can play a role in your mouth and lip's youthful appearance.  It is important to use an anti-aging lip product because it can restore some of the necessary nutrients like antioxidants and hydration that depletes as people age.
Anti-aging lip products can also deliver a necessary level of moisture that keeps skin firm and supple.  Ingredients like alpha hydroxy remove limp, dead skin cells to reveal a firmer more vibrant layer underneath mean while retinal and peptides can actually speed up the rate you produce new skin cells.  Anti-aging lip products should be used twice a day especially in extreme weather conditions like sun and harsh winds to provide moisture.
