What is the barcode?

The bar code is a colloquial term used to refer to vertical wrinkles in the upper lip area. These expression lines usually appear around the age of 40, however, they can begin to be noticeable as early as the age of 30.

Why does the barcode appear?

We must consider that the skin around the lips is thinner and more sensitive than other areas of the face. Because of this fact, it is more prone to be marked by facial expressions.

It is also influenced by the fact that the lips are a part of the body that isquite mobile and with which we tend to make gestures. This characteristic, together with the thinness of the skin in this area, causes the appearance of the bar code.

Many habits can be responsible for this sign of aging, for example smoking. Besides being detrimental to your health, it is a fact that most people with this problemare smokers.Taking this into account, if you usually use tobacco and want to eliminate the barcode, we advise you to give up this habit.
