Smoother Lips

Lips over time are susceptible to sun damage and volume loss also.  Sun damage shows up as fading of the vermillion border and fine lines and loss of color in the body of the lip.  Volume loss shows up as shrinkage of the lips and lines.
Here are three things to improve them.
1)   gentle AHAs, retinols, and antioxidants can be used on the lips with sunscreen (in lip formulation) 3-6 x/day.
2)   Light peels, exfoliation and neutral lip liner help
3) Filler in the lips can be done many different ways – including a French method – small drops –  just for hydration but don’t change the contour or size of the lips.  The rest of the syringe can be used elsewhere on the face.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes!
