Wrinkles around mouth can be caused by many factors. If you are used to chewing excessively or having pursed lips, the muscles around your mouth can constrict.

Women are believed to experience more mouth and lip wrinkles than men. This is because tissues around the mouth of women contain fewer sweat glands and blood vessels than men.

Here are some wrinkle home remedies that can reverse or slow down wrinkles around the mouth and some other lip problems such as chapped lips.

Chapped lips and wrinkled lips

Chapped lips or cracked lips may be caused by many different factors including diminished moisture in the skin and around the lips, lack of certain fatty acids and cold weathers. 

Cracks at corners of the mouth are different from cracked lips. Those are caused by lack of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) so restock on your vitamins and apply the essential oil remedies mentioned below. 

Unscented cream with essential oils

Get an unscented cream from any pharmacy and add healing essential oils to it. You can get the essential oils at the health store.

You can decrease the swelling and get more moisture to your lips by adding about 25 drops of lavender essential oil and 15 drops of sandalwood essential oil to the cream.

This will provide you with a natural lip balm that you can use for  cracks, lipstick lines, smokers lines, and chapped lips.

Calcium -flaxseed oil for chapped lips

Calcium hold cells together all over the body. The cells need fatty acids to absorb the calcium they need. Lack of any of these can cause flaking and peeling lips, lack of beautiful skin, and wrinkles around mouth.

  • Take a recommended dosage of calcium along with magnesium, 2 times daily on an empty stomach to help the body use calcium properly.
  • Take 1 tablespoon of flaxseed oil daily also. You may use the flaxseed oil on salads.

Remember to use the basic remedy of 7-8 glasses of water daily. You need a lot of water as the first line of defense against chapped lips.
