What Causes Laugh Lines?

Laugh lines are primarily caused by the following:

• Overexposing Yourself To The Sun

If you expose yourself too much in the sun, you may find that your laugh lines are more pronounced. Limiting your exposure to the sun will limit laugh lines.

• Smoking

Cigarette smoking is one of the primary causes of laugh lines. If you are serious about reducing laugh lines (and about good health in general for that matter!), then ensure that you do not smoke at all. Seriously, it does nothing for you other than harm your health.

• Age

Your laugh lines are more pronounced as you get older and older. Sure, you may have laugh lines even at 20, but you are more likely to have them at say, 50.

• Genetics

If everyone in your immediate family has pronounced laugh lines, then chances are that you will also be vulnerable to them. Your likelihood of having laugh lines appreciates considerably if you are genetically predisposed to them.

• Repetition Of Facial Movements

If you frown too much, it may be a good idea to stop doing so. Repetition of facial movements is among the most common causes of laugh lines and it makes intuitive sense as to why this is so.

Laugh Lines Treatment: 7 ways to get rid of laugh lines.

Getting rid of laugh lines is not particularly difficult. The trouble is many people are quick to go the chemicals way instead of trying the natural remedies first. It is always worth it to ensure that you exhaust all natural/home remedies for some ailment before proceeding to take medications. Fortunately for us, there are plenty of natural remedies to get rid of laugh lines. Let us have a look at 7 of them:

• Stay hydrated

This has to be stated at the outset. The importance of staying hydrated cannot be overemphasized. Each of us needs at least 70 fluid ounces of water every day. Staying hydrated will go a long way in helping you deal with laugh lines.

• Olive Oil

Olive oil is one of those “magic” oils that seems to help with just about everything under the sun. Take some olive oil and mix it with a few drops of lemon. Massage the relevant area using this mixture. This will hydrate your skin and help retain moisture, thereby reducing laugh lines.

• Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is an antioxidant that is very effective in keeping wrinkles at bay. All you need to do is massage the affected area with a few drops of coconut oil. If you so desire, you can also add Vitamin E to the coconut oil.

• Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe Vera hydrates your skin and has proven benefits when it comes to treatment of laugh lines. Extract some gel from Aloe Vera leaves and apply it on the affected areas. Do this regularly and you will see an improvement in a while.

• Papaya Paste

Papaya paste is an effective weapon to combat laugh lines. All you need to do is make a paste of it and apply it to the affected area. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes before washing it off.

• Egg whites

Applying egg whites directly to the affected area has proven to be an effective measure to counter laugh lines. Egg whites work by tightening the skin and reducing wrinkles. Ensure that you let the egg whites dry for about 40 minutes after applying before rinsing it off.

• Exercises

There are some exercises which have shown promise in the battle against laugh lines. Part your lips a little and pull the corners of the mouth towards the face. Ensure that the lips are parallel while pulling back as far as you possibly can. Hold this for 8 to 10 seconds. Repeat after a brief rest. Try to get in about 15 reps of this.

If the laugh lines are around the eye, then place the thumbs at the outer corners of the eyes and your fingers on the top of your head.Shut your eyes and squeeze. Pull the outer corners of the eyes away from each other. Hold this position for 8 to 10 seconds. Repeat for a brief rest. Try to get in about 15 reps of this.

Apart from those mentioned, you could also opt for facial patches which work by flattening your skin cells. Personally, I am against botox for laugh lines as I feel it is quite unnecessary, but it is also an option should you choose to opt for it.

If that’s not enough, the make up trick below works wonders. Check it out!
