The skin around our lips is slightly more sensitive than the skin on the rest of the face. That’s why it’s common to have premature signs of aging in this area.

Since we’re continuously exposed to the sun’s rays, toxins, and other aggressive factors, our skin loses collagen and elastin so often develops abnormalities. Although these abnormalities occur differently in each case, it’s necessary to take some measures and care to avoid affecting the beauty of the face.

Luckily, there’s currently a wide variety of cosmetic treatments that nourish the skin around the mouth to keep it supple and wrinkle-free.

The benefits of beeswax

Beeswax is a natural substance made by young bees to protect their beehive against the external agents of the environment.

It consists mainly of long-chain hydrocarbons, including paraffins and oleins.

Beeswax has been used as a natural cosmetic ingredient for years. This is because it regulates the pH of the skin, prevents infections and creates a protective barrier against agents that cause aging.

Applying beeswax to the skin reduces the presence of impurities and dead cells. Thus, it optimizes the process of cell oxygenation.

The benefits of almond oil

First of all, the fatty acids found in almond oil easily penetrate the pores of the skin to give you extra moisture and softness.

It contains vitamins A and E, which act as antioxidants and natural anti-inflammatory agents. These vitamins,  as well as the minerals in almond oil, relieve the dryness, irritation and other symptoms caused by exposure to toxins.

In addition, this oil also improves blood circulation and facilitates the cleaning of dead cells. As you can imagine, this is the key to preventing premature aging.

The benefits of rose essential oil
