Spanish term or phrase: hacer piquito
Cuidado para no hacer piquito y formar arruguitas alrededor de los labios.
Bonnie
pucker up
Explanation:
Elinor's explanation about stretching your lips forward is great, but I think we would more commonly say "pucker up"... and it does make wrinkles show!

Pucker up your lips to create wrinkles around your mouth. (http://www.homestead.com/markycady/tips.html)

If you pucker up as if to give a kiss, the wrinkles that are formed stay in the 'pale zone'. (http://functional-med.com/faces.htm)

Hope it helps!

light kiss on the lips


Explanation:
A piquito is a light kiss on the lips, for which you have to stretch your lips forward. What the sentence means is that you shouldn't give a piquito to another person to avoid wrinkles around your lips.

HTH :-)
