“Lips are the most important part of the face, they are used for everything from speech to food.”My best friend Grandma
Lips are the ultimate symbol of not just sensuality, but sexuality. I believed lips were the ultimate way to communicate with man-from producing a flirty pout to puckering up!
Just look at the million of dollars spent each year on lipsticks, glosses, and other products designed to give the illusion of an Angelina pout. Without knowing it, when we think of beautiful, youthful smiles, we picture full, soft, smooth, wrinkle-free lips.
Attaining the defined, sexy, and sensual look is often matter of genetics. And even if you lucky enough to be blesses with the lucky pout, the aging process can take it toll. Unfortunately, it cause lips to recede and thin over time which explain why woman spends million each year as collagen and Juvéderm to enhance the lips.
That’s because the lips are actually one of the first places on your face to reveal age. Like the eyes, lip’s outer layer gets thinner as we lose collagen with age. With time, lips become dry and more susceptible to wrinkling.
