Nose To Mouth Lines
Deepening over time, nose to mouth lines appear as the facial skin and supportive structures of the cheeks become weak due to ageing. Repeated smiling also makes these lines more pronounced.
Nose to mouth lines are normal and an inevitable sign of ageing skin, but they can cause the face to look tired and old, adding years to your appearance.
The best prevention for ageing skin is to limit your exposure to the sun by wearing a good sunblock and a wide-brimmed hat. However, nose to mouth lines or nasolabial folds are also caused by normal facial muscle movement such as smiling, so there isn’t much else you can do to prevent them occurring – aside from not moving your face at all!
