Wrinkles are simply a part of the aging process. Some of your favorite stars and celebrities in Hollywood are dealing with wrinkles as they get older. These little lines happen to everyone. But some of the worst wrinkles to show up occur around the mouth and on the chin.

Why Do Wrinkles Occur Around the Mouth and Chin?
There are several reasons why wrinkles appear around the mouth and chin. First as we get older our skin produces less and less collagen and elastin. These two ingredients are vital for having taught supple and smooth skin. Have you noticed how children and teens have such soft looking skin? They have no wrinkles. This is the collagen and elastin in their skin. Even men and women in their 20s have relatively soft and smooth skin. Their elastin hasn’t run out yet.
In addition excess exposure to the sun and smoking can also cause wrinkles to appear more prominently around the mouth. Finally as you know we use our mouths all the time. Each day and night the muscles that surround the mouth and chin get the greatest workout. We smile laugh talk yawn and sneeze. We do all of these movements with our mouth and the muscles get worn out. The skin does too and this can lead to more wrinkles.

Will Over the Counter Serums Work for Wrinkles Around the Mouth and Chin?
There are some over the counter serums that you can purchase online or at the drugstore that might help with mouth and chin wrinkles. Look for those that contain vitamin A as this is the best ingredient for taking care of fine lines and wrinkles. Just keep in mind that vitamin A can make your skin extra sensitive to the sun so any time you know that you will be going outside with this ingredient on your face you will need to put on sunscreen.
Limiting Sun Exposure to
When you limit your skin’s exposure to the sun you are doing yourself a favor. This pertains to anyone of any age. Sunlight contains UV rays and these rays cause the deterioration of the skin. If you get a bad sunburn or a heavy tan you are literally damaging your skin and when it repairs itself the small wrinkles and sun spots are the scars from that damage. Over time these spots and lines get deeper and more pronounced.
To avoid these damaging effects it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen every time you go outside. This is true for the winter months as well. The sun can shine brightly even when it’s cold outside.
Surgery for Wrinkles Around Mouth and Chin
If you have tried all of the wrinkle-free methods above without luck it might be time to go to the professionals and see if they can help. There are a few surgeries that can be performed for wrinkles around the mouth and chin. Although they won’t completely get rid of the wrinkles and fine lines here they may help.
One way that a professional can help is with the injection of Botox. Botox plumps up areas on the skin so that the wrinkles get spread across the skin more. This produces the appearance of taught and smooth skin. It is not a good idea to get a lot of Botox or you will look like a doll. But a little is okay. In addition you may consider getting a face lift. This is an invasive surgery that literally pulls up your skin so that it is more taught over your bones and muscles. These procedures can be quite expensive and are not natural so keep that in mind.
