The ageing lines around the mouth are usually caused by smoking. To reduce the appearance of these lines, you must lessen your amount of smokes per day and gradually quit. Also, apply lip balm regularly to keep your lips soft and young.

Acne around jawline

When the level of skin-friendly oestrogen reduces in the body, the skin loses its shine and acne may develop. The condition usually occurs in elderly women who develop acne cysts deep in the dermis and can be usually found on the jawline and hairline. You can treat the condition by eating apricots, sweet potatoes and mangoes as they contain plenty of vitamin A which can normalize the production and life cycle of skin cells.

So, give all these signs a serious thought and let your face look brighter than ever.
