How To Get Rid Of Forehead Wrinkles Without Botox
Wrinkles can pose a huge threat to your looks and style, no matter what kind of wrinkles. For some people, wrinkles are not just a product of old age, they are also a product of genes passed down from their forefathers. These wrinkles can be very annoying and difficult to deal with.
Forehead wrinkles are perhaps the most visible out of all kinds of wrinkles that can develop on the body. These can form on the forehead’s skin and sometimes these can form early on in your teenage years as well. It can be troublesome to get bangs or cover up your wrinkles with a hat or snapback.
We all heard about Botox treatment to treat forehead wrinkles albeit expensive method. But is there any way to get rid of them without botox? Yes, there are many ways but let’s first discuss its causes and then we move on to the treatments.
What Are The Main Forehead Wrinkles Causes?
Wrinkles normally form because of the elastin weakening and decreased collagen formation. When the body starts producing more collagen, elastin in your skin starts to loosen up. This, in turn, makes your skin look wrinkly. The forehead is the most vulnerable place for wrinkling as the skin is generally softer and loosened there already.
But wait, what causes the elastin to loosen up? The causes are discussed below:
One of the most common reasons for wrinkle formation is exposure to the sun. The sun emits harmful ultraviolet radiation. These UV rays are known to permeate through your skin and cause harm to the elastin present in your skin. The layers are attacked one by one causing damage to the elastin fibers present in your skin.
The elastin fibers are what keep your skin tight and wrinkle-free. So whenever, these elastin fibers are attacked or damaged, they loosen or wrinkle up the skin. Since the forehead covers a large area on the face, it is very liable to getting wrinkled up by the sun’s UV rays.
Smoking is a common denominator when it comes to wrinkling on any part of the body. When you smoke up, you’re basically allowing free radicals to form in your skin. These free radicals are dangerous to the elastin fibers in your skin. The free radicals in your skin also cause your skin to age prematurely which results in wrinkles on the face.
Not only does smoking speed up the process of aging, but it also narrows down blood vessels in your face. When you smoke up a lot or for a prolonged period, smoking can negatively affect your blood vessels and narrow them. The blood carries important nutrients and vitamins to your skin and when it can’t reach the skin cells present on your face, the face starts to wrinkle.
The tissues in your skin are kept together by a connecting tissue called collagen. This collagen is mostly made from water. Often times, we can get dehydrated because of prolonged exposure to heat or the sun or even because we don’t get enough water.
This state of dehydration can cause the collagen molecules in the skin to crack up and disassociate from the skin tissues. This is often the case in forehead wrinkles where collagen quickly breaks up due to the dehydration.
Stress or mental health
When we are in stress, our body tends to produce more and more of a particular hormone called cortisol. Cortisol is known to prematurely age your skin and cause wrinkles. Although the production of cortisol is linked to other factors as well, a major reason for their overproduction is definitely stress and mental health problems.
Diet culture is a toxic part of our society and it leads to a lot of us leaving our bodies in a state of either undernutrition or malnutrition. Our body needs a steady and stable supply of nutrients and vitamins in order to keep producing collagen at a steady rate.
So when you deprive your body of these essential nutrients by not eating fruits and vegetables, you’re allowing your body to age prematurely and produce wrinkles. Wrinkling is a byproduct of not having enough nutrients reaching the skin cells on your face.
As we grow up, our body stops producing estrogen in a large amount and so the amount of estrogen in our body goes down by a large proportion. Estrogen is a hormone which enhances or maintains the skin on your face and body. So when the body stops producing enough estrogen, your collagen levels go down immediately and you start to wrinkle up as a result of it.
Forehead Wrinkles Treatment
One of the common ways to deal with wrinkles on any part of the body is to use a Botox injection to tighten the skin. However, this may produce an unnatural look on your face and in some cases, it may even cause more problems with your skin.
Fortunately, there are several ways you can work around this disadvantage. For this purpose, we present to you a list of ways you can effectively get rid of your forehead wrinkles without using any Botox injections.
Use anti-aging serum
Anti-aging serums have been around for a long time. These are known to be effective due to their easy usage. Anti-aging serums are also more popular due to their availability. Serums are thinner than moisturizers and are designed to permeate deep into the skin’s layers.
One of the most effective anti-aging serums is the Super C Serum by COUI. We here at COUI have carefully used a horde of essential vitamins and minerals in this serum which revitalizes your collagen production and regulates the elastin strength in your skin cells. We use natural and safe ingredients such as Marine Kelp, Hydrolyzed Collagen and even the highest quality form of Vitamins C and B3.
Use anti-wrinkle creams
Next to serums, we highly recommend you to use anti-wrinkle creams that use special ingredients and vitamins to strengthen the tissues in your skin layers and promote the production of collagen.
The best creams for deep forehead wrinkles are generally thicker than serums and are also more hydrating than serums. Collagen is a tissue in the layers of the skin that is made almost completely from the water. The hydrating effect can promote the repair of damaged or impaired collagen tissues in the skin.
The Phytemanteau Day Cream is proven to be the best cream for deep forehead wrinkles. It is produced in our labs as an essential moisturizer that can do basically 3 things for your skin: hydrate, protect and anti-age.
We use a plethora of natural ingredients for the production of this hydrating Anti-wrinkle cream such as Rosehip seed, Oil Mango seed, Grapeseed, and Aloe Vera extracts. We would recommend using this day cream daily in the morning. We would also recommend this cream to you if you have dry, combination or normal skin type.
If you have oily skin, then we would suggest you consider the serum as it is less hydrating. And since people with oily skin already has a lot of moisture and shine on their skin, hydrating effect of the cream would only worsen your situation.
Use anti-wrinkle night creams
Unlike day creams which are meant to be applied once while you’re awake and doing work, the night creams take on a different approach. The healing processes begin when you fall asleep and it requires a lot of vitamins and minerals to kick start.
We have carefully concocted our Retinol Night Cream to optimize the moisture in your skin and heal your collagen tissues in the layers of your skin. Our special Retinol Night Cream also makes your skin more developed and prone to collagen connective tissues falling apart and breaking away. This night cream uses a special combination of Retinyl Acetate, Vitamin A and sea kelp to help guard your collagen tissues against destructive forces such as the sun's UV light, dehydration, and even dust particles.
Use an avocado mask
Let’s find out how to get rid of deep forehead wrinkles naturally using avocado mask. Avocados are known to reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face and skin in general. An avocado mask can work wonders for you if you choose to not use any of the creams or serums we recommended.
Avocados are rich in vitamins, oil, and minerals that are essential for healthy skin. These nutrients are also responsible for defending the skin against all kinds of toxins from the atmosphere.
While you can also buy an avocado mask from the market, we would recommend making the mask at home as it is super easy. All you need to do this is to have some fresh avocados, a bit of fresh yogurt and water.
You can start by chopping up the avocado into medium sized slices and then mash half of that avocado in a bowl. Then just mix in a tablespoon of fresh yogurt into the mashed avocado. You can additionally add in a bit of water to further accelerate the moisturizing process.
Then, just apply this mixture to your face and leave it on for at least 15 minutes before washing it off. Make sure to wash it off with lukewarm water. Your forehead wrinkles will be gone within a matter of a few months.
Botox injections are harmful and many people face complications of their skin just because Botox is not safe for use. You can choose to opt for the several ways we have provided for you to keep your skin safe and healthy. Forehead wrinkles can be annoying and make you doubt your image, but with these tips and products, you will surely be on your way to healing and confidence.
