Pursing up your lips to drink from a water bottle causing premature wrinkles…

I don’t know if this is true.

As my FI just said, people who play brass and wind instruments don’t have “smoker’s wrinkles” around their mouths and they pucker much tighter and longer than water-bottle-drinkers. I’ve only seen smoker’s wrinkles around the mouths of smokers. Pretty sure the toxic nature of the cigarettes has a lot to do with it.

Using your face will cause it to wrinkle, very very gradually, but pesronally I think that’s ok and wouldn’t let it affect my thirst quenching habits.

@kgirl91: Yeah, it’s from the Dily Mail so there is no way it’s true.

@joya_aspera:  that actually helps me feel better because I usually drink with a straw and have to admit I was mildly worried about it!

I firgure that most people with mouth wrinkles are smokers, but I’m basing that on a hunch. it has been proven that smoking causes premature aging, and it seems to me that you are getting an extra concentrated amount of that crap around the mouth area. that was my theory, at least.
