5 Brilliant Tips to Fight against Frown Lines

Some people call it the lion wrinkle - it's the ugly line that appears between your eyebrows when you frown and gives you an ultra-stern appearance. And while some aspects of being a lion we'll take quite happily (like the fabulous mane of hair), this one we can do without. Thankfully there are ways to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and restore your skin’s youthful appearance.

Wear Sunglasses

When frowning becomes a habit, the line between our eyebrows deepens and eventually remains. Start by wearing a good pair of sunglasses to avoid frowning in the sun. It won't prevent you from frowning completely, but it's a start.

Massage Your Forehead

To prevent the appearance of frown lines, place your thumbs on the inner bridge of the eyebrows and, applying gentle pressure, slide your fingers towards the temples. Repeat the action just above the eyebrows, too. Repeat three times every day to maintain a smooth forehead.

Try Facial Exercises

If you want toned facial muscles, you must give them a workout, and this exercise can give you a more relaxed look. Place one hand flat on the forehead, fingers spread apart and fingertips facing down towards the eyebrows. Pull the skin towards the top of the forehead, pressing strongly. At the same time, gently move your eyebrows up and down. Repeat five times. You will notice that the line of your eyebrows is slightly higher and the frown muscles are relaxed.

Use An Anti-Ageing Cream

Morning and evening, choose an anti-ageing cream for the entire face and finish with a serum rich in hyaluronic acid, concentrating on the frown line and forehead. The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Filler Anti-Aging Day Cream contains hyaluronic acid that restores skin plumpness, fills up lines, moisturizes, and visibly improves skin radiance for a younger look.

Cosmetic Treatments

When your wrinkles and fine lines are very deep-set and anti-wrinkle creams are not enough, you could resort to cosmetic treatments. Botox is injected between the eyebrows and relaxes the forehead muscles to prevent a deepening of the frown line. If the line is very deep, hyaluronic acid injections are another option.

Don’t let temporary frown lines leave behind a permanent mark on your forehead. These frown lines can make you look perpetually annoyed or stressed and are not a good look. Follow the simple tips mentioned in this article to reduce the appearance of fine lines and smoothen out your forehead.
