How to get rid of wrinkles on your forehead

Though we can't stop the clock, or turn back time, there are a few things you can try to help get rid of forehead wrinkles. Read on to find out how to get your skin looking younger right now.

How to get rid of wrinkles on your forehead

As we age, our skin begins to thin and the underlying network of elastin and collagen fibres, which provide scaffolding and elasticity for the surface layers, loosens and unravels. This can cause sagging and the formation of furrows. The skin also becomes drier and loses its ability to retain moisture. External factors such as sun damage, diet, smoking and even facial expressions can cause wrinkles.

How to get rid of forehead wrinkles:

Stop frowning
Wrinkles can be caused by facial expressions.

  • Continually frowning or furrowing your brows can cause even more, deeper wrinkles.

Live well
The first step to getting rid of your forehead wrinkles is to have healthy skin overall.

  • First, make sure to drink lots of water. Well-hydrated skin looks plumper and fuller and your wrinkles will be less prominent.
  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidants and get plenty of sleep so you look well-rested.
  • Exercise at least four times a week. There’s nothing better for the appearance of your skin like the healthy glow after a great workout.

Take care of your skin
There are a number of products on the market that are designed to repair the skin and get rid of forehead wrinkles. Others will make the lines and grooves less prominent.

  • Try line-plumping creams with ingredients like peptides, retinol or retinoids, all of which stimulate collagen production.
  • When applying cosmetics, try a light-reflecting primer under foundation to deflect the light from your lines. (The bonus: the primer will ensure your makeup doesn’t settle into wrinkles, further helping to camouflage them).
  • Indulging in regular treatments like hydrating and anti-aging facials can also help. When applied during a facial, anti-wrinkle products can be more effectively absorbed into the skin.

Cosmetic surgery
Certain well-known, non-cosmetic fillers that are injected into the skin can be fairly reliable forehead smoothers.

  • You’ll need to get injected about every three to six months to see the greatest results from this solution.

Facial exercises
Just like the rest of your body, your face is made up of muscles.

  • After time, muscle fibres stretch and lose up to 50 per cent of their shape, which can cause sagging and wrinkles.
  • Plus, forehead grooves can be accentuated by repetitive facial expressions.
  • So, just like you exercise to strengthen your legs, abs, shoulders or arms, you can also perform a daily facial workout to reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your face. Try upper facial exercises to help reduce forehead wrinkles.

Facial patch or facial tape
These products are designed to tighten loose skin and pull it up to its previous (unwrinkled) position.

Follow these simple steps, and you could lessen the appearance of your forehead wrinkles and possibly help achieve younger-looking skin.
