Moisture is especially important if you enjoy a bold lip colour as part of your everyday look, but concealing wrinkles goes beyond the preparation.
Dr Ross Perry, medical director of Cosmedics skin clinics told Express.co.uk: “Lips can look dry, crusty and cracked during the winter months and as we age, making lines around the mouth appear more prominent.
“Using darker shades of lipstick can exaggerate lines around the mouth. Opt for moisturising lipsticks which will help to hydrate the lips and try to aim for nude colours which will not only make thinner looks look fuller but lines appear less obvious.
“It’s important to use a moisturising lip balm with an added SPF during the colder months. Those containing petroleum jelly work well as they can heal dry and cracked lips sealing in moisture at the same time.”
