How to Get Rid of Smokers' Lip Lines

Updated April 17, 2017

Wrinkles and lines on the face are a natural part of ageing. Smoking speeds up the natural ageing process because it limits oxygen supply to the skin decreasing its elasticity. One major concern for ageing smokers is the occurrence of smoker's lip lines, which are thanks in part to the constant puckering of the lips when smoking a cigarette. Getting rid of these wrinkles is simple with a few tools.

Take a multivitamin every day. Choose a multivitamin with the vitamins A, B, C, and E to boost your skin's collagen production. This will help your skin to repair itself.

Be gentle when washing your face. Avoid harsh soaps that can dry out and irritate the sensitive skin around your lips, promoting premature wrinkles. Use lukewarm water, as hot water strips your skin of its natural oils.

Apply anti-wrinkle cream to the skin around your lips every night and morning. This will help nourish your skin and get rid of wrinkles while preventing new wrinkles from occurring.

Wear sunscreen every day. Protecting your skin from the harsh UV rays of the sun is one of the best things you can do for it. Applying a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30 will help keep the sun from further damaging the delicate skin around your lips.
