WELLBEING: Improve Your Lip Line

In Chapped, Lips, Lipstick on June 8, 2011 at 6:00 am

By Marian Rubock

I‘m often asked about what can be done to improve the appearance of lip lines as we grow older. It is always a challenging area to treat because we use this part of our face all day long – from talking and laughing, to eating and drinking – we definitely give these muscles a workout!  

Laughter is the best medicine, but what happens to your lips?

Before we explore possible solutions to this, let’s go back to basics and look at what causes our skin to wrinkle.  To understand this, you first need to know that the skin is made up of three layers – epidermis (top layer), dermis (second layer which is actually comprised of two layers) and subcutaneous tissue (third and deepest layer).

The dermal layer contains important structural elements like collagen and fibres controlling the skin’s elasticity. In essence, a wrinkle is formed when there is either partial or full loss of this second layer.

Wrinkles can be classified as either static or dynamic. A static wrinkle is formed when there is full loss of the dermis and the top layer of skin (epidermis) folds down into it. You may notice this when you speak and also when you face is at rest. Read the rest of this entry »

Last Tuesday night the lovely editor of Flourish magazine online, Jane and I attended a Blogger event at Dermalogica‘s WA headquarters in Fremantle.  The first to arrive amidst an August shower, I was greeted by three lovely smiling (and completely flawless) faces, one of which was Claire Crouch’s – the company’s corporate trainer.  Claire grew up in London out of the harsh sun and thus has magnificent skin and a killer sense of humour.  I liked her immediately.  In front of the pretty faces sat a large plate of scones from which I was too scared to take on account of their delicious-looking, but will-definitely-drop-on-the-clinical-Dermalogica-floors cream fillings.  Instead, I took a glass of champers.  Damn.

Jane arrived not long after and we had a quick tour of the complex.  It’s all very white and bright and exciting because that’s exactly how you want your skin to be!  There were two training rooms, a face-mapping stall set up, a kitchen area with fridge, microwave, herbal teas, etc and bathrooms too.  The facility is there for therapists who use Dermalogica products to go and get the low down on ingredients and skin health so they can then transfer it to their customers.  Brilliant!

Tina, Jane, me and Claire in front of the Dermalogica shop (I want it all!)

After our tour, we headed into Room 2 where a powerpoint presentation and lots of Dermalogica goodies were set up for us, amidst notepads, pencils and information booklets.  We took a seat and Claire launched right into explaining the five Dermalogica steps to healthy skin, while Tina kindly demonstrated (how brave!) as we went along.  Much information was shared and it is my beauty editor duty to pass it on.  So grab a cup of green tea and settle in for a mind-blowing info sesh that will change your skin forever!

A guest post from the ever-fashionable Kate Murphy, here is today’s product of the day.  (If you’re an Aussie, chances are you’re already familiar...)

Every morning as I walk out the door to begin my day, I check my handbag to make sure I have the essentials.  Wallet, phone, diary, bottle of water, iPod and my Lucas Papaw Ointment.  An absolute necessity in my beauty regime and must in my handbag, I’m never a day without a tube of Lucas Papaw Ointment, always sitting cosy between my iPod and tic tacs.

Chapped lips can be caused by a whole multitude of things – cold weather, dry weather, too much licking, too much kissing, UV damage… the list goes on.  Luckily, there is a method you can precisely follow so you don’t have to give up pashing during the colder months.
