Do you find the need to slather on more lip balm or lip gloss? Does the area around your mouth feel tighter? Are your lips more
chapped? Whatever the circumstance or issue, lips over the age of 40 require special attention.
Lips are often the last consideration in the journey of mature skin care. That favorite lip balm may no longer be enough to activate collagen, provide proper moisture ingredients, or deliver the right nutrients to ward off fine lines that frame the lips, or counter dry, chapped lips.
