Kiss goodbye to forehead wrinkles

Forehead wrinkles are frustrating, we get it, but stressing over them is only going to make matters worse. These stubborn frown lines on the forehead are more common than you think and are one of the largest concerns in people 30 and up. If you are not ready to shell out the big bucks just yet for a surgical or dermatological forehead wrinkles treatment, here is a handy little guide to arm you with everything you need to know about getting rid of the pesky forehead wrinkles.

How to prevent forehead wrinkles?

You already know the meaning of forehead lines, you’ve seen it & experienced it! The sooner you start taking care of your skin, the lesser you will have to worry about reversing the damage in the future. The best way to lessen the appearance of forehead lines is to know how to prevent the forehead wrinkles from forming in the first place. Simple lifestyle changes like avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun, managing stress, getting enough sleep, staying hydrated, and eating a balanced diet will go a long way in keeping your skin firm and supple. You can also set aside around five minutes every morning and night to perform simple facial exercises for your forehead that will prevent your forehead from getting saggy and wrinkled.

But no matter how diligent you are with your habits, your age will catch up to you one day and fine lines and wrinkles will start creeping in and make a permanent mark on your forehead. Going under the knife or getting fillers is probably the only way you would be able to banish these lines completely, but if you do not want to go that route just here, here are some forehead wrinkles treatments and products you can use to effectively minimize their appearance and address your ageing skin concernss.

1. Use products with retinol to boost collagen growth

Retinol is a powerhouse of benefits, and if you are concerned about your forehead wrinkles, you need to add a retinol skincare product to your arsenal. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, stimulates collagen growth and helps your skin repair itself and fight fine lines and forehead wrinkles. Retinol also improves skin cell turnover and makes your skin smooth and soft, but give your product at least three months to start showing its effects on your face. With so many skin-loving and anti-ageing benefits, it is no surprise that retinol as skincare is such an effective wrinkle buster! 

The L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Day Cream with SPF 35 PA++ is perfect for when you want to give your skin its daily dose of retinol while also protecting it from the sun. The Pro Retinol A and Centella Asiatica in the Revitalift Day Cream instantly boost the skin texture to give you a smoother and younger look. The day cream is enriched with anti-ageing elements that reduce fine lines or in this case, forehead lines and wrinkles and boost skin firmness. The SPF in the cream provides broad spectrum protection that prevents premature skin ageing that is caused by exposure to the sun.

2. Make sunscreen your new best friend

Sun exposure plays a huge role in prematurely ageing your skin and making you look old and tired. The sun rays not just cause skin tanning and hyperpigmentation but also make your skin dry and wrinkly. And that’s not all, every time you squint when you are out in the sun, you are repeatedly contracting and expanding your facial muscles, especially the ones around your eyes and on your forehead, which in turn, increases the likelihood of wrinkles in those areas. To hold on to your youthful and radiant skin, limit your time in the sun, use sunglasses and hats to avoid squinting, and use a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from the harsh and damaging sun rays. The L'Oréal Paris UV Perfect Aqua Essence Sunscreen is a non-greasy sunscreen that provides broad spectrum protection against both, UVA and UVB rays. That’s not all, the Vitamin E in the sunscreen helps your skin fight against free radicals, and keeps your skin looking visibly young.

3. Treat your skin to rich and nourishing anti-ageing night skincare products

Your skin behaves differently at night when compared to the daytime, so it is only right to use different products for your day and night skincare routine. Your skin gets to work when you rest at night, so use a night serum and cream that helps your skin repair the damage caused during the day. Nighttime serums and creams are specially created to hydrate your skin overnight and boost your skin’s regeneration and renewal process. For example, the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift 1.5 % Hyaluronic Acid Serum and the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Night Cream provide an overnight solution to regenerate the skin’s texture, reduce forehead wrinkles, and restore skin’s firmness. Use the Revitalift hyaluronic acid serum to boost skin’s elasticity and hydration and give your skin a smooth and radiant look and follow with the night cream mask to reduce pores and get a smooth and wrinkle-free look in the morning. 

4. Massage and exercise your face every day

Ever wondered why your frown lines make you look tired? Skin that is young and healthy keeps you looking fresh and radiant. Just like you keep your body healthy and in good shape by going to the gym, you need to exercise your face too if you want to keep your skin firm, tight, and younger-looking. Here is how to prevent frown lines, keep forehead wrinkles at bay, and enjoy a youthful and plump face –
i. Place your index, middle, and ring fingers on each eyebrow and using light pressure, smooth outwards while frowning.
ii. Keep up the pressure for a few seconds and then repeat 10 times
iii. Next, place your fingertips on your forehead and smooth upwards.
iv. At the same time, try to close your eyes without squinting or frowning and hold this position for about 10 seconds.
