Wrinkles above the lip - moisturiser recommendation?

I seem to be getting wrinkles above my lips. I'm not bothered by wrinkles on my forehead or by my eyes, but above my lips make me look haggard.

Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced mortise riser, or remedy to reduce them?

I'm amazed no wise Mumsnetter has come up with a suggestion.
Though I know in the past Retinol or fillers have been mentioned as the only viable solution

No cream can remove wrinkles.

You might get some improvement by using something with hyaluronic acid. Look at the Ordinary range or something with retinol.

I have the same. Hyaluric acid has made a difference definitely . I bought the one from Medic 8. I'll probably go for fillers longer term though.

I've found a big slather of Blistex before bed has helped. No smoking too

I use Olay deep wrinkle treatment. It pretty much does what it says on the tin.

Not sure about instant fixes but, as a long term thing, I remember once being told by a beautician to use eye cream on my top lip as its stronger?

Merumaya Lip Potion seems to have made a bit of a difference.

Thanks all.

I use an eye cream

Do you smoke? Quit. (Or if you do anything like drinking from straws which causes the lips to purse like that)

Moisturiser might plump the wrinkles up. But only prescription Retin-A will actually reduce them. Retinol is much weaker.

Remember to put sunscreen on this area. It's one area I forget as well.
