I’m sure you think I’m silly for saying this because it’s such a no-brainer. However, it’s pretty obvious based on the research I’ve done that most American citizens are not hydrating themselves enough. They simply aren’t drinking the recommended amount of water they need to stay wrinkle free. Hydrating yourself is essential if you want to reduce the number of wrinkles you have. Your skin gets thirsty and if you don’t hydrate it then you’ll be left with dull, sagging skin.
Here’s why it’s important, your skin contains elastin and that elastin resides under your skin. In order for your skin to look and feel healthy, the elastin needs water. Another thing that you need is lots of collagen. The collagen is what gives your forehead that youthful look. If you restrict your water intake, the collagen will without a doubt dry up. When it dries up, it can no longer do its job.
Here’s a good tip for you to help you remember to drink water. You should be drinking at least half of your total body weight in ounces of water (just water). You cannot include any other liquids or drinks. I promise that if you follow this regimen, you’ll see improvements within a week and you’ll also be far more energetic.
The Right Primer
Sometimes you need to trick the eyes. That said, start incorporating some light-reflecting primer into your daily makeup routine. This will help reduce the settling that occurs when you cake on makeup in your forehead area. Adding a primer to your routine will make your skin look smoother and it will also help further prevent your makeup from settling in the lines of your forehead. I know, it’s not exactly a permanent fix but it works and it’s worth mentioning!
Use Wrinkle Cream
Wrinkle creams and serums do work. Sure, there are a lot of them out there and some are absolute garbage. The flip side to that is that some anti-wrinkle creams work fantastically. How can you tell which is good versus bad? Simple, just take a look at the ingredients on the label. Do you see retinol, retinoid, or peptides on the label listed as active ingredients? If so, then you’re in luck. Those are the ingredients that you’re looking for because they all help stimulate collagen growth, which you absolutely need. Be on the lookout for those buzz words and if you don’t see them then put the bottle back on the shelf.
If you’re really interested in completely eliminating those forehead wrinkles of yours, then you might want to try getting some Botox done. It’s a good option for some that want something that might last longer that’s cheaper than going under the knife. If you are interested in getting Botox then I suggest you contact your dermatologist to find out the cost and procedure. Botox is not invasive at all and it takes next to no time to recover from it. One session will typically last about 3 to 6 months. It’s not cheap and costs about $400 to get done but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than getting plastic surgery. It’s also not as painful. It will without a doubt get rid of most forehead wrinkles.
Coconut Oil and Olive Oil
If you’re looking for a more natural approach, you can always look into using coconut oil or olive oil on your skin. It’s a pretty natural way to get rid of any forehead wrinkles and the process is rather simple. All you need to do is warm up each of the oils and massage them both into your forehead in an upward motion. If you’re planning on using this tactic then it’s best to do so before bed. This oil duo is a wrinkle-battling match made in heaven. Nothing but wrinkle free success here!
Studies have shown that acupuncture has been proven to make you feel younger, look younger, and make your skin look and feel smooth. So how does it work? Well, people get acupuncture to further tone the muscles in their forehead. Toning the muscles helps bring the existing elasticity to the surface of your skin. These needles are almost invisible, so if you have a problem with needles, that shouldn’t be an issue.
You can hide those ugly wrinkles by changing your hairstyle up. Grow bangs or do a side sweep of your hair. This will hide the wrinkles. No, it’s not a great tactic but it definitely works and it’s one worth mentioning.
You can get laser treatment to reduce your forehead wrinkles. If you absolutely hate using products you can opt for laser treatment. Getting one laser treatment can help reduce your wrinkles for months at a time. The good news is that the FDA claims that microlaser treatment is completely safe. If you decide to take this route, you’ll want to give your skin some time to heal (about 4 days).
Here’s another very natural wrinkle reducer for you to look into trying. Castor oil is pretty effective! All you have to do is drink it. Don’t down cups of it. Simply drink a few tablespoons per day for a period of about two weeks. The one thing you need to remember is that this makes you go to the bathroom, so if you’re going on a road trip, steer clear of this oil to avoid its laxative qualities.
Yes, rubbing citrus fruits on your face will make your forehead wrinkles disappear. Why? Because, they contain vitamin C and E, both of which have amazing skin caring characteristics. Just go ahead and rub the pulp and all on your face. Leave it on your face for 15 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
