What are forehead lines?
Whenever you move your face your forehead muscles contract. After years of raising your eyebrows, squinting or frowning combined with environmental factors (exposure to sunlight, smoking and pollution) lines and wrinkles begin to form.
The main cause of forehead lines is a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. As we age the production of collagen and elastin naturally drops. Good preventative action includes a good skin care regime, minimising stress, wearing SPF all year round as well as avoiding alcohol and smoking.
What Causes forehead lines
The main cause of forehead lines is a decrease in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. These proteins are responsible for our skin’s elasticity, but production drops as we age. Good preventative action includes minimising stress, using an SPF to protect your skin from harmful UV rays all year round, avoiding smoking, drinking plenty of water and following a good skincare routine, especially ensuring the use of a good moisturiser.
You may begin to notice the first signs of forehead lines in your late twenties and early thirties as faint lines begin to appear. With time, these lines gradually deepen and become increasingly prominent until they are visible even when you aren’t raising your eyebrows or frowning. Although age makes them worse, some people have forehead lines before they have any other signs of ageing skin.
