To get rid of wrinkles around the mouth, people can use a four-step procedure that involves taping the skin from the corner of the mouth next to the jawline to behind the ears. The first step in the procedure entails using a mild cleanser on the skin.
One can exfoliate the skin by using the cleanser and a small towel to scrub the face in a circular motion. After exfoliating the skin, one removes any cleanser residue with water and pat the face dry with a clean towel. However, one should not use any moisturizer or creams around the mouth area because the tape will not adhere properly to the skin.
One uses a strand of about 6 inches in length household tape for the taping process. This is sufficient for one side of the face. One places one end of the tape a half-inch away from the mouth corner, pull the tape back taut and make sure to secure the tape with the fingers next to the jawline until one reaches the ear region. Place and attach the loose end of the tape behind the ear. While performing this procedure, the tape must be parallel to the jawline. Use this same procedure to tape the other side of the face.
