Kiss goodbye to forehead wrinkles
As you approach your 30s, your facial muscles begin to give up, your skin loses elasticity, and wrinkles appear, particularly on the forehead. Disaster! Time to arm yourself with your wrinkle-busting guide, without going to the doctors. Here are some simple steps you can follow to say goodbye to forehead wrinkles and welcome younger-looking skin.
1. Use anti-ageing creams
Opt for a moisturising anti-wrinkle cream, as once you are over the age of 30, your skin starts to dry out. Smooth on your cream in the direction of wrinkles - from your nose to forehead for frown lines, and horizontally for lines on your forehead. A day cream will firm and plump up your skin, then in the evening, apply a night cream that will work to rehydrate your skin and close your pores while you get your beauty sleep.
2. Embrace the magic of serums
Serums have a much higher concentration of active ingredients than creams, which makes them super effective anti-wrinkle products. The active ingredients plump up wrinkles and improve overall skin tone, so what are you waiting for? Look for a serum that contains hyaluronic acid, as this is the best ingredient for plumping up the skin.
For example, try the Revitalift Laser X3 Renewing Anti-Ageing Serum by L’Oréal Paris to improve skin’s elasticity and texture. With regular use, your skin will feel plumper and wrinkles and fine lines will visibly reduce. The Pro-Xylane in the Laser X# Renewing Anti-Ageing serum stimulates collagen synthesis to improve skin density and plumpiness.
3. Try at an at-home peeling session
There's no need to see a dermatologist. Don your own white coat, and do an easy glycolic acid peel from the comfort of your bathroom. The idea is to remove dead cells from the skin and boost cell renewal. For best results, do it weekly on cleansed skin. Stop, though, if your skin becomes irritated.
4. Incorporate facial massage and exercise into your routine
You work out your body, now work out your face. You can do it at home or in the office (maybe not sat at your desk though). To delay the appearance of frown lines, place your index, middle and ring fingers on each eyebrow and, using a light pressure, smooth outwards while frowning. Keep up the pressure for a few seconds and then repeat 10 times. To reduce forehead wrinkles, place your fingertips on your forehead and smooth upwards. At the same time, try to close your eyes without squinting or frowning (like we said, don't do it at your desk). Hold this position for about 10 seconds, then release.
Horizontal lines on the forehead and frown lines between your eyebrows add insult to injury by being slap bang in the middle of your face, making you look grumpy and tired. But by following the steps
mentioned above, you can reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, limit muscle contractions, around the eyebrows and give your faces back their youthful glow.
