Q: I'm 41 years old and I use Liz Earle products. My skin is pretty good but the area above my top lip is looking really bad. The skin there has lost its shape and even though I'm a non-smoker, there are fine lines which the sun has made more apparent. Is there anything you could recommend?
Alison: To play catch-up in this weak area, you need to exfoliate more and add hydration. So, you could try exfoliating more on the upper lip area to help improve the look of the skin. You've said that you use Liz Earle products and the Smoothing Line Serum is fantastic on the upper lip area and around the eye area as well – apply two to three times a day. This contains hydrocolic acid and has a plumping effect to help disguise the look of fine lines.
Remember that it's also important to wear a sun block on the lip area so I recommend Ultrasun SPF30 Face Cream for all-day protection. Make sure it's applied thoroughly as with the lip area, any product here can wash off when you have a cup of tea, for example. So leave it to sink in for about 30 minutes.
