Knowing how to lift a drooping mouth can help maintain your appearance as you age. As the skin ages, certain processes break down, and the skin does not maintain its elasticity as well. Knowing how to keep you skin youthful and fresh is the key to lift a drooping mouth.
- Moisturize your skin. When your skin dries out it does not perform as well. If your skin gets in the habit of losing water, it will not hold water later on in life. Being able to hold water allows your skin to stay firm, as the wrinkles often mean that the water has been let out of your cells. By moisturizing you skin twice daily, this will allow your skin to hold onto water better and will maintain its elasticity. When it is more elastic, it will help to fix your drooping mouth.
- Protect your skin from the sun. The sun blasts your face with UV rays. UV rays damage the layers of collagen and get in the way of your skin's day to day operations. Even if you are going to be outside for just fifteen minutes, it is best to slap some sunscreen on. Especially if your skin is already fragile, you cannot afford to make your drooping mouth any worse.
- Get surgery. Surgery can fix anything these days. Cosmetic enhancements are routine and get more and more inexpensive as the days pass. Most clinics will give you a free consultation and estimate. This is a more permanent but artificial way of lifting your drooping mouth.
- Don't smoke. Smoking deprives your skin of oxygen and this does damage to it in the long term. It especially effects the mouth because the muscles that hold the cigarette in place become weary after a while, exacerbating a drooping mouth. If you are a smoker you should consider kicking the habit, if only to protect your face.
