Many of us have at least one thing about our appearance we wish we could change. For a great deal of us, that one thing is our thin lips. Genetics play a big role in lip size and shape. Some of us are born with thin lips naturally while the majority of us tend to simply lose volume over time.
The good news is that there is a range of great preventative and corrective solutions to restore fullness and provide a more youthful appearance to the lips and surrounding area. On a regular basis, make a conscious effort to stay hydrated and ensure your diet is high in Vitamin C and protein. You should also make sure your lips stay hydrated externally by applying your choice of lip ointment. As well as ensure you are protecting the delicate lip area with an SPF, as UV rays contribute to the breakdown of collagen. Corrective medical options include injectable treatments such as Dermal Fillers and are the recommended treatment for thin lips. Lip Augmentation can provide an instant subtle plumping of the lips as well as a smoothing effect on the entire lip area.
