As you grow older, your face naturally begins creasing into your most common expressions. At Eminence Organic Skin Care, our goal is to live and age beautifully and naturally. Hopefully, laugh lines dominate and show off a lifetime of joy, but for many people, forehead wrinkles and their appearance of worry and stress develop as well. If you find your face naturally settling into an expression of permanent anxiety, you may want to consider ways to “fight the frown." Here are five natural ways that can unknit those brows and help you age gracefully:
How To Get Rid Of Forehead Wrinkles:
You may be dodging botox but that doesn’t mean you need to avoid the all-natural needles used for acupuncture. According to Stylecaster, the prick of acupuncture needles tones the facial muscles, leading to fewer lines and wrinkles. Besides its positive effect on muscle tone, acupuncture also apparently stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, resulting in less prominent forehead wrinkles and more youthful-looking skin.
2. Eminence Organics Hibiscus Instant Line Filler
In two minutes or less, the Eminence Organics Hibiscus Instant Line Filler smooths and plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Formulated with botanical peptides and ice wine actives that increase elasticity and tighten the skin, this all-natural filler immediately minimizes the look of lines. With its innovative curved tip applicator, it can literally smooth away the look of wrinkles on your forehead.
3. Surgical Tape
That’s right, taping your face when you sleep could actually physically prevent the muscles in your face from tensing into an expression of stress. Strategically placed, surgical tape or facial patches can hamper your night-time face scrunching, smoothing out your skin into a flawless look that may last even during a tape-free daytime. Since lines are often due to the repetitive actions of your facial muscles, halting overnight frowning gives new meaning to the term “beauty sleep”!
One way to bring on more youthful-looking skin is chemical exfoliation. Because acids penetrate deeper than physical granules, a chemical peel offers a more glowy and even complexion. The Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel removes the dull surface layers of dead skin cells to reveal the new, younger skin beneath. This gentle peel also deeply hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
5. Serums And Overnight Masks
Our Product Support Team recommends applying a serum and a mask to keep your skin looking firm and glowing. The Bamboo Firming Fluid contains a Natural Retinol Alternative so that look of elasticity in the skin is improved. The formula contains coconut water, bamboo and coconut oil that moisturize and restore the skin's moisture barrier.
You can also apply the Strawberry Rhubarb Hyaluronic Serum which helps your skin appear smooth and silky. A unique Botanical Hyaluronic Acid Complex preserves moisture in the skin with a blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acid and marshmallow root.
As an overnight treatment option, consider the luxurious Bamboo Age Corrective Masque. Argan oil contains antioxidants to soften and moisturize the skin's appearance, as well as shea butter that moisturizes because it is high in triglycerides and fatty acids.
