Frown lines aren’t a sign of struggle. Those distinguished marks that stretch across the forehead are evidence of a job well done. You’ve spent years building a life you’re proud of and it shows. When it comes to enjoying the years ahead, why not keep the memories but forget the frown lines?
What are frown lines?
Frown lines are fine lines that stretch across the forehead. They are usually found in between and above the brow.
There are two types of frown lines: static and dynamic. Static frown lines are visible at all times. They are present on our face while resting, without any movement or expression. Dynamic frown lines make their presence known when our face moves.
Leading causes of frown lines:
- Years of smiling and squinting
- Exposure to the sun
- Smoking (breaks down collagen)
- Aging (loss of collagen and skin’s elasticity)
Avoiding frown lines.
We can prevent or slow down the formation of frown lines with a healthy diet. It’s always helpful to keep our skin hydrated with moisturizer and our bodies hydrated with proper water intake. It’s also important to limit sun exposure, get adequate rest, reduce stress levels, and relax the muscles with gentle massage.
Getting that smooth, refreshed look.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to avoid frown lines forever. Even if you’ve taken the very best care of your skin, you may still see the wrinkles begin to form sooner than expected. You’re not alone and you don’t need to be discouraged.
