If you want to get rid of forehead wrinkles, we also recommend that you consider nonsurgical cosmetic procedures.
Read this article and you don’t have to worry about forehead wrinkles anymore.
1 | What causes forehead wrinkles?
Why do wrinkles form on the forehead?
There are many possible causes but the top four reasons are excessive sun exposure, dryness, habits of facial expression and aging.
Constant facial expressions of emotions such as furrowing your brows and frowning can contribute to wrinkle formation as well.
We will discuss about each cause in more detail below.
1.1 ｜UV damage
UV rays denature collagen and elastin deep within the skin, thereby reducing skin elasticity.
In other words, UV rays can and will age your skin.
Don’t forget your SPF!
After the skin starts becoming dry and possibly sagging, any existing wrinkles will worsen and become deeper.
Since UV rays can penetrate clouds on even the gloomiest of days, they are a threat to your skin all year round.
Your skin can be getting damaged by UV rays without you even realizing.
Over-washing your face, harsh cleansers, winter heaters, and even air conditioning.
This loss of moisture in the face skin can lead to the formation of wrinkles.
1.3 ｜Habits of facial expression
Forehead Wrinkles can be caused and worsened by our daily facial expressions.
The forehead has muscles that move around the forehead called frontalis muscles.
Moving these muscles frequently can fold your skin over itself, thus causing wrinkling.
When frontalis muscles become stiffened, the habits of facial expression take root and can create forehead lines.
Since frontalis muscles are connected to the eye muscles, they also move when the eye muscles move.
Forehead lines tend to develop if you are always:
- Raising your eyebrows
- Widening your eyes
External factors aside, aging also causes wrinkles to deepen.
As we age, collagen and other substances inside the skin decrease, and the skin loses its elasticity, resulting in forehead wrinkles.
Although it is difficult to resist aging, there are measures you can take in order to prevent the condition from worsening.
We will explain the ways how to prevent forehead wrinkles below.
2 | How to prevent forehead wrinkles?
2.1 ｜Protect your face skin from UV rays
As mentioned above, UV rays are a major cause of reducing collagen and elastin in the skin.
To avoid being affected by UV rays as much as possible, it is necessary to take measures such as applying sunscreen every 2 hours and wearing a hat in sunny weather.
Consider installing UV proof curtains.
UV rays can penetrate into indoor rooms via glass windows.
2.2 ｜Keep your forehead moisturized
Moisturizing care must also be taken to prevent wrinkles from carving deeper due to dryness.
Depending on your age and wrinkle situation, skin care products should be carefully selected and evaluated to suit your needs.
Face masks and can also be introduced to reduce wrinkles.
These products can do wonders for your skin by nourishing and hydrating.
P.S. When doing skin care, please do so gently.
Your skin is delicate!
2.3 ｜Avoid sleeping on your stomach or side
If you usually sleep on your stomach or side, you may have forehead wrinkles while sleeping.
When you are asleep, your body can exert a large amount of weight and pressure onto your face if it is improperly placed on your pillow.
Your face will essentially be ‘mashed’ between your pillow and your weight.
Sleeping on your back is your best bet for wrinkle prevention.
