Did you know that the furrowed brow and frown lines between your brows are the main cause of a “Resting Bitch Face”? The tissue between the brows is gathered or knitted into a fold to form frown lines. They result from the repetitive action of the underlying muscles involved in face expression. The arched brow is generally regarded as being a little unsightly, but it can also be a sign of wisdom, excessive stress, or both. The long, horizontal lines that run partially or completely across the forehead from side to side are known as furrowed brow, and they are sometimes mistaken for frown lines that form between the eyebrows.
What causes forehead wrinkles and Furrowed Brow?
- Age- One of the common reasons for furrowed brows is the subject that no one likes to talk about. Simply put, as we age, our bodies create less collagen, which causes our skin to be become dry and shriveled.
- Facial Expressions- The skin between our brows, on the bridge of the nose, across the forehead, and at the corners of the eyes are the areas that commonly develops deep wrinkles over time, as a result frequent squinting and frowning.
- Smoking- Smoking breaks down collagen, which is the main component for skins elasticity, which results to saggy skin and fine lines.
- UV Light- The integrity of the skin’s underlying layers is compromised as a result of UV rays from the sun penetrating the skin’s outer layer. In addition, collagen formation is often inhibited.
- Dehydration– The daily water requirement for the average woman is 6 to 8 glasses. EVERY DAY. Your skin will dry out and become wrinkled if you don’t drink enough water. This is so that all your organs may benefit from the water you drink, including your skin, which is one of the last to do so.
How to get rid of Frown Lines and Furrowed Brows?
Neuromodulators (i.e., Botox; Dysport; Xeomin)
Soft-tissue fillers (i.e., Belotero; Juvederm; Radiesse; Restylane/Perlane; Sculptra; Voluma)
Another effective method is:
Drink Plenty of Water
- Drink two cups of water with breakfast, lunch, and dinner (that’s six cups!).
- Sip on a water bottle between meals (that two more cups!).
Eat Foods Rich in Anti-Oxidant
- Lean protein like chicken and fish
- Healthy fats like nuts and olive or coconut oil
- Vegetables like broccoli, spinach, and kale
- Fruits like apples, blueberries, and mango
Massage Your Forehead
- Apply facial oil, you can use coconut oil, olive oil or face serums. The oils is mainly to prevent friction and pulling.
- Gently massage your furrowed brows in a circular motion either by hand or you can use Vanav Rolling Up in a circular manner in your brows.
- Feel free to wash off the oil when you’re finished, but you can also leave it on for extended repair and healing.
These kinds of massages can be performed daily to treat existing furrowed brow and stop the development of new ones- they are that safe.
Add Supplements in your Diet
- Collagen- The support system that keeps your skin smooth and wrinkle-free is largely made up of collagen. Unfortunately, as you age, that collagen may start to break down. That may result in wrinkles and unpleasant furrowed brows.
- Vitamin C- Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes these free radicals and preserves the support structure that prevents wrinkles.
- Flaxseed Oil- Inflammation is another important factor in collagen deterioration. Numerous things, such as sun exposure, environmental pollutants, and even substances in your diet, can promote inflammation. Omega-3 fatty acids included in flaxseed oil act as antioxidants to reduce this inflammation.
