For years I have been telling may patients to avoid using sports bottle or straws in order to prevent wrinkles and fine lines around their lips. I have explained to them that the constant flexion of the muscles in order to purse your lips around the straws will eventually cause breakdown in the skin and make the lines that initially were just seen on pursing, will become visible at rest too. Traditionally called smoker’s lines for the similar reason, smoking has its own bad effects on the skin, but the constant pursing is of no help, so those that smoke get the lines much faster than those with the straws. I have finally been vindicated in a recent news article for you to read below. So remember, move away for the straw and embrace the glass!
