Why do my frown lines make me look tired

Not satisfied with just marking our faces, vertical lines also make us look sad and tired. We look at this natural yet annoying phenomenon.


What are frown lines or vertical lines?

As a rule, horizontal lines, which generally appear on the forehead and around the eyes (crow’s feet) are the first to rear their ugly head, while vertical lines appear later. This late arrival can pile on the years. These lines, often found between the eyebrows or around the mouth, can make you look worn out, or even unhappy.

The most pronounced vertical lines? - The lion's wrinkle, between the eyes and the nasolabial folds (also known as laughter lines) located either side of the lips, - Marionette lines, which go from the corners of the mouth down towards the chin, as well as the vertical lines around the lips (smokers lines).


What causes these vertical frown lines?

What is the cause? A drooping movement caused by gravity, a decrease in elastin and collagen fibres and even repeated movements that hollow out features and cause facial volumes to collapse. The result? The skin becomes marked and the face can look more severe and unhappy.


What can you do to get rid of these vertical lines?
