What Causes Forehead Wrinkles?
Forehead wrinkles happen for multiple reasons which includes genetics, sun damage and lifestyle factors such as smoking and a poor diet; plus lack of care for the skin. Another big cause of forehead lines is because we tend to overexpress in this area; when we are talking, thinking or worried. There is not too much that we can do to change the genetics that we are born with. But we can manage them by reducing forehead wrinkles as much as possible using natural proven methods, plus improving our lifestyle in positive ways. We look at the natural methods available to smooth out forehead lines in detail below.
Reduce Forehead Wrinkles with High Performance Skincare
Using good hydrating and nourishing face care will help ease lines. It’s not going to completely eradicate deep wrinkles like injectables will, but it can help to ease and smooth fine lines. Applying the best plant actives to skin will help to stimulate collagen production within the skin. Delivering topical antioxidants will also help to repair past sun damage, which is one of the main contributors to lines on the forehead. Try the routine below for fresh smooth skin.
- Start with our Advanced Cleansing Milk to remove make-up and impurities without stripping skin. Gentle cleansing removes dead skin cells and brightens the complexion for baby soft skin.
- Follow with our Purifying Face Toner removes the last traces of cleanser, detox skin & make it more receptive to creams & treatments. This allows them to work at a deeper level in skin.
- Then moisturise as hydrated skin is essential to ease lines. Our Matt Formula Face Cream delivers hydration, nutrition and protection for oilier and sensitive skin types. It provides long lasting moisture and nutrients to plump and smooth skin.
- Our other natural face cream moisturiser is the Active Dew Face Cream for normal, dry & sensitive skin. It also offers excellent hydration, nutrients & protection to boost and plump skin.
- Nakin's Eye Cream Complex works to smooths lines, reduce puffing and dark circles. Use after moisturising, but before applying serum.
- Then is our star in the fight against forehead wrinkles. Try our Performance Face Serum and smooth onto skin to see lines and wrinkles ease and reduce from the intense actives, including hibiscus.
Prevent Forehead Wrinkles with Effective Sun Protection
After genetics we feel that sun damage probably has the most effect on the appearance of our skin. It’s never too late to start protecting our skin from the powerful UV rays. Cover skin with clothes and a hat, plus always wear sunglasses. Also apply a high-quality sunscreen of factor 30 or above about 15 minutes before going in the sun. Then reapply every 2 hours.
Stop Forehead Wrinkles by Retraining Our Facial Movements
One of the big causes of lines on the forehead comes from our facial expressions when we frown, are surprised or angry and sometimes just from talking. One way to reduce this is to retrain ourselves to stop these repetitive face movements. Spend a couple of minutes each day practicing talking and shouting without moving the forehead as much. You can place your hand on your forehead to help keep it in place. Relax your forehead, face and eyes throughout the day whenever you can. Then during the day when you are going about your activities try to be aware of your expressions and relax the face when doing things like talking.
Ease Forehead Wrinkles with Facial Massage
Massage really benefits skin with anti-ageing because it encourages the blood to circulate and improves cell development, which keeps skin looking healthy and smooth. There are lots of videos online that describe how to massage the forehead and here’s a quick easy forehead massage that can be carried out at any time to ease those forehead lines. Apply oil to the face like our amazing Anti-Ageing Revitalising Face Oil. Hold your fingers together on both hands and place your hands flat just in front of your face with your palms facing you. Then slide your hands and fingers in a gliding motion from the eyebrows up to the hair line. Alternate the hands so they are always revolving and move across the whole forehead area.
Smooth Forehead Wrinkles with Facial Yoga Exercises
Facial yoga is hailed by some as a natural face lift. There are lots of exercises online like one that we saw by Face Yoga Method. They advise to make a fist with both hands and place them either side of the centre of your forehead with the knuckles touching it. Then apply a small amount of pressure and slowly pull the knuckles to the edges of the face. Prevent 10 times and do this daily.
Prevent Forehead Wrinkles by Sleeping Properly
We all know how we look after a bad night’s sleep, sometimes our lines can look more pronounced than usual. On the flip side we look much more rested and fresher in our face looks after a good night’s sleep. Healthline have researched how sleep affects our skin and say that when we are asleep the blood flow in our skin increases, collagen builds and sun damage is repaired, all of which reduce wrinkles. So, prioritise sleep in your life and make time for it.
Take Time to Relax to Avoid Forehead Wrinkles
Stress is a big contributor to wrinkles and for many of us stress if carried in the forehead. Our forehead is very busy moving around lots and carrying large amounts of stress throughout the day. This tension builds up over time to contribute to forehead wrinkles. So, it pays to take time to relax and to work on dealing with stress better. Most of us experience significant stress in our lives and we cannot stop this. But we can alter our reaction to stress.
Drink Lots of Water to Keep Skin Smooth
We love water because it is free and helps our systems to function as best it can. When we are dehydrated our skin simply cannot function as well as it can when we are hydrated. Pure Luxe Medical advise that water keeps our body hydrated and refreshed and helps to maintain our skin's elasticity. People that drink lots of water are less likely to suffer from scars, wrinkles, and soft lines and they will not show as many signs of aging as those who drink little amounts of water.
Banish Forehead Wrinkles with A Good Diet
Eating foods that are rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals really help to get skin smooth and glowing. The work to reduce internal inflammation and boost skin from the inside. Try to include the below in your diet:
- Berries as they are rich in flavonoids and polyphenols.
- Foods with lots of amino acids in like nuts.
- Omega oils found in avocado and coconut oil.
- Green vegetables rich minerals and antioxidants.
Avoid Forehead Wrinkles by Cutting Out Sugar & Alcohol
Foods like sugar and alcohol cause inflammation to our systems and have a negative effect on our skin. Sugar, alcohol and processed food cause internal inflammation which is ageing to skin and will contribute to wrinkles. Another big skin ager is smoking as it sucks the life from skin and reduces collagen and elasticity. So, try to minimise these in your lifestyle.
