Smackers, kissers, yaps; your lips help you say things you'll regret, show how much you care about someone, and flash that amazing smile. As of late celebrities have been showing up on the red carpet and in their selfies with bee-stung pouts. What is it all worth? Most celebs go under the knife for something more permanent or get lip fillers injected into their lips by a doctor every few months.

Lips are one of a kind and human lips are even more unique. Everything from the vermillion border to their function as a sensory organ, lips can say a lot about a person. Maybe this is yet another reason why we have become so aware of their shape and size.
Lips lose fullness with age due to several factors. Collagen is the key protein that gives our lips it's size and shape, big or small. With age our body makes less of this protein, causing our lips to thin out. Another cause of thinning lips are UV Rays from sunlight. Those who have spent a considerable about of time under the sun without protecting their lips properly will find theirs getting skinny. Protect your lips by using lip balms with SPF on a daily basis, rain or shine.
