What are thinning lips?
Thinning lips describes a common concern among women and men, even at an early age. In your 30s, you may notice your lips becoming thinner and deflated. The fact is, thin lips occur for the same reason that your skin begins to sag over time: lost collagen and hyaluronic acid (HA). Collagen and HA give our lips plumpness, moisture and an overall look of youthfulness. Lip shape and size are also determined by genetics. If your lips are naturally small, there’s a good chance that your lips will begin to thin out in your late 20s.
What are some additional contributing factors?
Smaller, contributing factors for this concern include dehydration, drinking from straws and aging teeth. Water is so important for our bodies, so it’s very important to stay hydrated. Sucking on straws can make our lips appear more wrinkled and smaller. And as we age, our teeth will actually wear down and our lips will start to sink inward. Thankfully, there are aesthetic treatments to correct this concern.
