If you think back to the first wrinkles you saw on your face, chances are they were forehead lines. Deep, horizontal lines across your forehead are often caused by repeated facial expressions, and they can be some of the hardest wrinkles to reverse.
If you’ve noticed your forehead wrinkles getting worse, here are three habits to ditch, and a few easy ways to help banish those forehead lines for good!
Squinting At Light
Is there any better feeling that the beautiful summer sunshine beaming down on your face? If you spend time outdoors without sunglasses or a hat, chances are you spend a lot more time squinting at the sunshine than you would think. Squinting can be one of the main causes of forehead lines because it causes you to contract your face in a way that created the folds and lines on your forehead.
These lines aren’t easy to get rid of but consistently using a cream with anti-aging ingredients like Matrixyl Synthe 6 has been proven to help plump and conceal forehead lines. This ingredient found in our best-selling Repair & Release Cream has been compared to Botox for the effects it can have on wrinkles that come from squinting and repeatedly contracting your face muscles.
How You Sleep
Are you one of those people who sleeps the same way every single night? It turns out that sleeping with your face pressed up on the same part of the pillow day in and day out can result in deep forehead lines that can be very hard to reverse. Skin experts often suggest sleeping on your back to avoid wrinkles but that’s not comfortable or possible for many of us.
Instead of trying to change your sleep routine to suit your skin, change up your skin routine to suit your sleep. Having a nighttime skincare routine that hydrates, nourishes, and plumps skin can help decrease your risk of forehead wrinkles while sleeping. The biggest game-changer will be your Repair & Release Cream which will help replenish collagen and elastin so your face can pull on your pillow without risking more damage to your skin.
Whether you’re breaking a sweat from a workout or from the heat of summer, our natural reaction is to wipe the sweat off our faces and foreheads. While this might seem harmless, you are pulling at your forehead skin every single time you do it. This repeated rubbing can result in worse forehead lines, as well as clog pores.
To make sure you aren’t adding to your existing forehead wrinkles, avoid rubbing your face when sweating. Also, make sure you’re properly cleansing your skin after sweating to avoid bacteria and dirt from going into your pores. Headbands and sweatbands are a great alternative to help keep sweat off your face and you can also always use a cool towel to pat your face dry and keep dirty hands off your face. Follow with your Lavender Oil Cleanser which hydrates and cleans the skin, and you’ll be looking younger and fabulous in no time!
