What are smile lines?

Smile lines, sometimes called laugh lines, are types of wrinkles that primarily develop around the sides of your mouth. Sometimes smile lines can also occur around your eyes. They are more noticeable when you smile.

As you age, these types of wrinkles may be inevitable. However, you have many options to help get rid of them.

What causes smile lines?

The primary causes of smile lines include:

  • a loss of elasticity (collagen)
  • dehydrated skin
  • genetics
  • smoking
  • sun damage

How can I prevent smile lines?

Some of the causes of laugh lines may be prevented with good lifestyle habits as a young adult. For example, you can wear sunscreen every day to prevent wrinkles that are related to sun damage.

Keeping your skin hydrated also goes a long way, whether you already have smile lines or not. Be sure to drink plenty of water every day, and avoid drinking too much caffeine or alcohol —both have diuretic effects.

Wash your face once or twice a day and follow up with a moisturizer tailored to your skin type. Check out these tips that will transform your anti-aging beauty routine.

Exercise and a plant-based diet can also help keep your skin in good health.

If you needed another reason to quit smoking, know that kicking this habit now can help prevent future wrinkles, including smile lines. If you’re having a hard time quitting, these apps may help.
