Why is it that lips appear thinner as we get older? According to Byrdie, your lips begin to thin for the same reason your skin begins to sag with time: a natural decline in collagen. Young lips are full because young skin contains plenty of collagen and naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, which keeps your lips moist and plump from the inside out. But there’s another surprising reason: Younger people have larger teeth, which help support the lips and keep them perky.
Like pretty much everything in life, genetics play a part in determining the plumpness of your lips. Lip size and shape are genetically determined, but all of us tend to get thinner lips over time. If your lips are naturally smaller, you may start to notice this in your late 20s and 30s. This is when collagen and hyaluronic acid production start to slow down. But that’s not the whole story. Lifestyle factors can be to blame for what seems like premature lip thinning.
And smokers’ lip phenomenon isn’t just limited to people who smoke. Smokers’ lines can appear even if you never smoked due to puckering your lips, chewing the inside of your lip and drinking out of straws.
