Various factors may cause forehead wrinkles. If you happen to be among those women taken aback by the marked appearance of lines on your forehead (especially if those lines look somewhat unflattering or tend to make you look angry or troubled), you may be prompted to take action…
Here are some of the skin care remedies that can breathe new life to your face. Begin with food for your skin. Load up on antioxidant-rich fruits like blueberries that are a rich source of vitamins C & E as well as fiber; oranges & lemons with vitamin C and “bioflavonoids” that help make the skin firmer and healthier-looking; oily fish, nuts & seeds that contribute to skin suppleness and overall wellness. Always drink plenty of water, too, and green tea, which contains “Polyphemus”, vitamins and minerals that are essential to normal body functioning.
Apart from internal nourishment, there are treatments that can diminish wrinkles and age spots. If forehead wrinkles have become your main problem and money is not an object, you may want to undergo Botox treatment. Treatment sessions will have to be repeated at regular intervals.
Most women would rather try jars and jars of creams rather than get a “Botox”. To lessen the trial and error process, do a thorough research on natural skin care rich in nutrients that will not only offer a protective shield against the sun’s harsh rays but will also hasten the growth of healthy new skin cells.
Veer away from products with “parabens” that can cause allergic reactions or produce carcinogenic effects in the long run. For women in their 30s and 40s, skin care products that can stimulate the growth of collagen and “elastin” can help erase years off the face.
Cast your sight on skin-friendly products like natural anti-aging creams that contain special extracts of “oxidative”-resistant plants that offer photo-aging protection. Some skin care products contain small peptide that mimics the human body’s mechanism to produce collagen, and they can be great alternatives to collagen injections.
Meantime, it’s important to make a few lifestyle changes, like getting enough sleep at night to allow the body (including skin) to repair itself, wearing sun protection with SPF of 15 to 30 daily, getting sufficient hydration, and not smoking (as this leads to the breakdown of collagen and elastin).
There are shortcuts, of course, to conceal the appearance of skin imperfections and lines on your forehead. If you’re way past your prime and you haven’t been using moisturizers or night repair creams, nor sunscreen during the day, and you tend to frown or make facial expressions as you speak, don’t be so surprised to find wrinkles etched on your forehead.
The right skin care (including a top notch sunblock and restorative cream) and proper nourishment along with other healthy lifestyle habits can gradually soften the appearance of, and minimize forehead wrinkles. Now if your skin is so sensitive, you need to choose a gentle but effective all-natural formula. It’s also important to note that putting so many things on your face in an effort to banish blemishes and lines may just aggravate skin.
