What are thin lips?
The term “thin lips” describes a common concern among women and men, even at an early age. Around the 30s, you may notice your lips getting 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 hyaluronic acid give our lips plumpness, moisture, and an overall look of youthfulness. Genetics also determine lip size and shape. If your lips are naturally small, there’s a good chance that your lips will begin to thin out in your late 20s.
Are there any additional contributing factors?
Additional, contributing factors for this concern include dehydration, drinking from straws, and aging teeth. Water is crucial for our bodies, so it is imperative to stay hydrated. Sucking on straws can make our lips appear more wrinkled and smaller. And as we age, our teeth will wear down, and our mouths will start to sink inward. Thankfully, there are aesthetic treatments to correct thin lips.
