Myth: Lip Lines are Caused by Smoking

Posted on: August 10, 2012

“While it’s absolutely true that smoking causes lip lines around the mouth over time, they aren’t the only culprit.  And you can’t assume a person has been or is a smoker just because his or her lips are fringed with fine lines.

Sucking from a straw or running a kissing booth will lead to accelerated lip lines just like smoking. This is caused by the continual mechanical motion of pursing the lips.  So whether or not you smoke, minimizing the motions of the muscles around the mouth is the best way to avoid those lines. Because as we like to say … the best wrinkle is the one you never get”. DermRF
