Lip wrinkles, also referred to as perioral wrinkles appear above the top lip. Aging, genetics, smoking and repetitive facial expressions constitute the major reasons of lip wrinkling.

Nowadays, people are extremely conscious regarding the way they their lips appear, and therefore to overcome these wrinkles they depend upon various cosmetic procedures, that help in diminishing the presence of lip wrinkles. These chemical techniques mainly consist of laser skin resurfacing and collagen injections. These two techniques majorly contribute in repressing the appearance of lip wrinkles, but have a negative impact in the long run. Such techniques solely aim at curing the wrinkles no matter what consequences they bear in the future. Therefore many people these days look out for less evasive methods to diminish their lip wrinkles.

Below are mentioned few simple techniques that would help you to get rid of your lip wrinkles naturally:

  • Combine together 2 tablespoons of uncooked oatmeal and small amount of honey to form a paste that has a thick consistency. Now apply the paste over your lips and massage it over the upper area.
  • Let the paste dry and soak into your skin and relax for 10 to 15 minutes, and then rinse it off with lukewarm water.
  • Now sit opposite a mirror, and open your mouth as if you were about to yawn, while holding your lips approximately 11 to 12 inches apart. Then gradually lower your upper lip down towards your lower lip.
  • Then try to hold the downward position of your upper lip for some time. Try elongating the middle part of your upper lip outwards, as though you are trying to smile.
  • Now slowly relax the upper lip’s horizontal hold and take it back to its original position. Repeating this procedure continually everyday will greatly help you to reduce lip wrinkles.
  • With your thumbnails facing your gums, place both your thumbs inside your upper lips. Keep your thumbs at least one inch apart.
  • Then move the muscles of your upper lips in eight small motions towards your upper lips. Retain the position of your thumbs throughout the drill.
  • Try to return the upper lip muscles to their original position in eight moments.
