Raising your eyebrows, concentrating, squinting or frowning - whenever you move your face your forehead muscles contract. After years of frequent contraction, combined with environmental and lifestyle factors - such as exposure to sunlight, smoking and pollution - lines and wrinkles begin to form. No longer just signs of old age, our clients report forehead furrows appearing as early as their 20s, giving them a stressed or worried look.
What Are 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.
