Drooping Mouth Corners
We’ve all been accused of our resting (B****) faces not necessarily telling a true tale of how we feel, as drooping mouth corners can make us look sad, tired or just plain angry.
But what causes them? Sagging skin on the mouth corners is caused by a set of muscles in the jaw called depressor anguli oris (DAO). These muscles run from the corners of the lips down to the chin and can create a tired and aged appearance for most. The natural loss in volume in the cheeks and lateral sides of the face as we age, can also create the affects of drooping corners.

- Smoking accelerates the natural ageing process, restricting blood flow to the top layer of skin, depleting vitamins and nutrients, and actively destroying collagen to affect the skin’s ability to “bounce back” from facial expressions as it is looser or saggier.
- Genetics can also play a part in how the mouth looks, generally being passed from mother to daughter and father to son.
