They say – laughter is the best medicine.
It surely eases your pain and worries, but it can also add on to our worries by leaving laugh lines around the mouth! Those lines are the last thing we want on our beautiful visage.
As you age, these laugh lines may naturally form on your face, making you look older than you actually are. Isn’t there any remedy to treat the,?
The good news is there are many effective ways to get rid of laugh lines.
1. Olive Oil
Owing to the anti-aging properties of olive oil, it is incredibly effective in getting rid of laugh lines. Olive oil also contains monounsaturated fats which effectively prevent the appearance of laugh lines in the first place.
All you have to do is rub some olive oil on your face, massaging it well especially near the area where laugh lines typically occur. Repeat this process twice a day. You can also mix olive oil with a little amount of honey. Apply this paste daily and get rid of these lines in no time.
2. Argan Oil
Argan oil contains 80% fatty acids that fight free-radicals present in your skin. This, in turn, not only treats laugh lines but also help you get rid of wrinkles.
After taking off your makeup and cleansing your face, apply a few drops of argan oil on your face and massage it gently in a circulation motion. Do this daily before going to bed. You will soon notice a difference in your skin – more moisturized and less saggy.
3. Kiwi Scrub
One of the major reasons why you develop laugh lines is due to the fine lines that may already be present on your face. To get rid of fine lines, it is important to exfoliate your face at least twice a week. A nice scrub option for you could be – a kiwi face scrub.
You can prepare a home-made kiwi scrub by mixing 1 tablespoon of mashed kiwi, sugar, and olive oil in a bowl. Apply the prepared scrub all over your face. Once the scrub dries off, rinse your face with lukewarm water. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel. Now apply a moisturizing lotion.
4. Wear Sunscreen
Smile lines may also be a result of sun damage that causes your skin to lose its elasticity, lessening the production of collagen.
In addition to laugh lines, over-exposure to the sun can cause severe sun spots, uneven skin tone, dry and rough skin. Thus, it is important that you wear sunscreen whenever you step out of your house.
5. Facial Exercises
There are several facial exercises that you can do to help reduce laugh lines around the mouth.
One of these easy exercises is to close your mouth and smile as flatly as possible. Hold this position for at least 10 to 15 seconds. Now relax and repeat. Do this daily 10 to 20 times and reduce laugh lines instantly.
