Sipping straw triggers wrinkle formation

wrinkle formation (1)

Do you find sipping through a straw classy and lady like? I do. Aside from the fact that it prevents any potential liquid spills and keeping your lovely dress away from unwanted stains, it also makes sipping that strawberry smoothie easier. No doubt, the use of a straw makes partying and social interactions even more pleasurable and hassle free.

A straw makes you neat while enjoying your favorite drink, but the bad news is that it can make you look older than your actual age. As harmless as it may seem, constant use of a straw for your drinks promotes the formation of fine lines around the lips that may turn into wrinkles and sagging skin over time. Remember how repetitive squinting can cause fine lines around the eyes? The same logic applies whenever you sip your drink through straw habitually.

According to skin specialists, the regular use of a straw creates fine lines around the mouth which is aesthetically termed “marionette lines.” Now, do not get this wrong and hate the sight of a straw every time you see one. That thin, elongated thing itself does not cause lip lines to form, but the repetitive action of sipping your drink through it does.

The act of sipping is similar to smokers putting a cigarette in their mouths. Of course, we know how bad smoking is for the skin.

Not only do free radicals harm the skin, but so does the pursing of the mouth while smoking. Again, the key word here is the frequency of the deed. Those who do not use straws every time they drink do not need to worry. However, measures for skin care and following regimens should still be observed.

We all hate the formation of unwanted fine lines on our faces and nothing beats prevention before occurrence. This is why staying hydrated and avoiding excessive sun exposure should also be maintained.
