Thin lips are exactly what they sound like – lips with little volume and potentially little shape. Though there’s nothing wrong with thin lips, you may desire a more full, voluminous look, especially if you notice your lips are thinning more over time.
Thin lips are genetic. If your mother and/or grandmother has thin lips, chances are you’ll have them as well. Although you can’t change your genes, there are things you can do to prevent them from thinning even further. Your lips need sunscreen too, in addition to staying away from nicotine, and eating a healthy diet full of vitamins and water.
If you’ve noticed your lips (whether they were thin to begin with or not) have begun to thin over time, you can thank aging. Like most other skin concerns, lips thin out as collagen production decreases. Fortunately you have options to add volume to your lips.
