From mattes to stains, we got you covered!

Our lips, just like any part of our bodies, are subject to subsequent maturing and damage as we age. Whether it’s dryness, dehydration, or fine lines causing our puckers to wear out and look less youthful, it’s ultimately up to us to keep them from experiencing utter discomfort. To solve the problem, we’ve prepared a little cheat sheet with the best products to use, should you find yourself suffering from the earliest signs of lip aging. 

How to Know If You Have Matured Lips

The first step to solve the problem is to know the symptoms. Before putting on any lip product, it’s important to identify your lips’ main concern. In case you’re wondering, here are the three most common signs to watch out for: 

1. Volume loss

The first thing to check to see whether or not your lips are starting to age is the loss of volume on the mouth area. As women mature, the skin’s ability to produce collagen decreases, and the lips are no exception. You might notice that your lips are at their plumpest during your 20s—here, your body’s overall metabolism is at its prime. But when you hit the big 3-0, things start to slow down, including your skin’s turnover and regeneration. When aging starts, your lips may begin to fold inward and look thinner in appearance.

2. Dryness and flaking

Out of all your facial features, your lips are probably the most prone to dryness, flaking, and peeling. The rationale: the skin on the lips is more sensitive than that on most parts of the face and body. For this reason, your lips are more susceptible to damage caused by external factors like sun exposure, dehydration, and harsh weather conditions. Usually, constant dryness is one of the easiest signs to spot, so you better watch out when slathering your lips with your usual lip balm doesn’t do the trick anymore.

3. Fine lines

Just like any part of your body, the skin on your lips is subject to wrinkles as you age and mature. Suzan Obagi, assistant professor in dermatology at the University of Pittsburgh, explains that the body produces about 1% less collagen every year starting at the age of 20. As collagen reduces, fine lines start to form on the skin’s top layer, including the lip and mouth area. Some signs that your lips are starting to wrinkle include lipstick bleeding, feathering, and migrating.
