The Lips Don’t Lie

To paraphrase Shakira, the lips don’t lie. Is it your right to fudge the truth when it comes to age? Absolutely! Just keep in mind that if you choose to tell a little white lie about when you were born, you better make sure your lips are on the same page because they’ll give you away every time!

Age really is just a meaningless number, as long as your anti-aging regimen is on point. Use Smart Cover’s Vitamin Beauty Stick every night around your eyes, and around your mouth. The antioxidants will nourish your skin as you sleep, giving you a smoother and more youthful appearance.

As Harper’s Bazaar writer Jenna Rosenstein notes, “volume loss and lines around the mouth [are] some of the earliest signs of aging.” It’s also very important to make sure your lips are properly moisturized, as peeling and cracking do not make a for a pretty kisser.

Try this nifty trick for keeping your lips exfoliated. When you brush your teeth, gently pass the bristles back and forth along your lips. That will sweep away the dead skin cells. Rinse with warm water. Then apply Smart Cover’s Tea Tree Oil Softening Stick to help heal and lubricate your lips.

Smokers are often warned that in addition to the obvious dangers, this habit can cause lines around the mouth. But even if you don’t smoke, “unconsciously pursing your lips can also lead to wrinkles,” writes Alexandra Duron of Prevention.com.

You’ll draw unwanted attention to those lines if you don’t prime your lips with Smart Cover’s Anti-Feathering Stick. This will minimize creasing and keep your lipstick from “bleeding” out of the edges of your lip lines, which can age you immediately. Apply the Anti-Feathering Stick before your lipstick and don’t be afraid to go for a bold, bright color!
