Ask Dr. Beckman: Why Do Lips Age Faster Than The Face?

Why Do Lips Age Faster Than The Face?

Most people take their lips for granted, but this small area is of great importance with many functions. The lips, second only to the eyes, are perhaps the most noticeable features of our faces. In fact, they effectively influence how others subjectively view us as attractive or not. For centuries they have been closely associated with youthfulness and beauty.

Nearly everyone who cares for their skin begins the day with use of products for cleaning, moisturizing, and to even combat aging of their skin. However, most skincare routines overlook and even neglect the lips. Why is this? Perhaps this is due to few products being available that are specifically designed to nurture, protect, and restore the soft, smooth, supple and youthful beauty of lip skin.

The category for topical lip products is comprised mainly of lipsticks, lip liner pencils and other items to make lips appear younger and more beautiful or products that provide a waxy coating to alleviate dryness. The real problem with lips is due to the fact that they appear to age faster than the rest of our skin.

There are numerous reasons for this. The vermillion (lipstick area) lip skin connects dry lip skin to transition to the wet mucosa of the mouth. Lip skin has minimal dermis and only 3-5 cell layers of protective epidermis with no oil glands. Lips get full sun with UV exposure daily. Throughout the day as lips become dry it is natural to re-wet by licking or pursing them.

This life-long exposure to damaging sun and repeated drying of this fragile, thin, pliable skin leads to loss of collagen causing formation of those disgusting wrinkles that let lipstick ”bleed”.

Now a remarkable “one-of-a-kind” product is available. It was developed scientifically just for lips. Peptides and other active moisturizing ingredients offer true anti-aging restoration and maintenance of beautiful, soft, smooth lips.

Clinical testing reveals it does all of these things while reducing the lip lines in a few short weeks  that previously could be eliminated only by using expensive injectable fillers, Botox®, lasers, or fat/collagen grafting.
