Let’s talk about the “bar code” above the lip and maybe the upper-lip fuzz as well….but first the wrinkles. Preventively, for my younger readers, there are certain you should cut out now. It is simple logic; anything that involves your lips to pout, purse or pucker. Smoking, drinking through straws, and uhmmmm….basically every repetitive muscle motion around your mouth…(don’t tell your significant other you heard that from me!). Like I will continue to say; I am just keeping it real!
Some wrinkle creams that contain retinol, coenzyme Q10 or kinetin will work on deep wrinkles around your lips. The main key is hydrate and moisturize, which seems to be returning factors in this “ageless” process. There is a huge difference between hydrating and moisturizing. Dehydrated skin lacks water and needs to be hydrated, dry skin lacks oil and needs to be moisturized. Drinking plenty of water doesn’t necessarily do the trick when it comes to dehydrated skin. Once again coconut oil is on the list of the best hydrators. Try to exfoliate your upper lip twice a week before you hydrate. Slap on the creams and oils morning and night, after you brush your teeth!
I am currently trying Vitamin E oil on my upper lip by simply busting open Vitamin E capsules. I will let you know how that works out. I also like Rodan + Fields Redefine Lip Renewing Serum, it has a very rich texture and does the moisturizing job perfectly. Next on my list to try are coconut oil and cinnamon paste. (Please contact me for a great Rodan + Fields rep).
For instant gratification I love No.7 instant Illusion Wrinkle filler. It blurs like a primer but you put it on after you apply foundation. Fancy light-reflecting particles make your wrinkles optically fade away….some how…
The “stache”: The hair on the upper lip I bleach and remove…what can I say…I am European…I come with hair! I use Sally Hansen Creme Hair Removal duo kit. No stubble and apperently reduces hair growth, although I can’t vouch for that just yet. For facial bleach I like Jolen even though I gave up on the perfect measuring. It seems to work either way. Jeezzz…and I keep telling myself I am low maintenance…
