Your Guide to Forehead Wrinkles: How to Get Smooth, Fresh-Faced Skin

From staying out of the sun to keeping skin moisturized, there are a number of ways you can keep your forehead wrinkles in check.

Got forehead wrinkles you just can't shift? If you are craving smooth, supple and downright dewy skin that glows with health, then it's time for some game-changing, skin-saving solutions. Here’s our guide to seven anti-aging tips that’ll help prevent forehead wrinkles and keep your skin in tip-top shape.


Remember That You Have Beautiful Skin

Your skin probably looks better than you think. Many women only see what they consider to be flaws when they look in the mirror. Whether it's forehead wrinkles, frown lines, or pigmented dark circles under eyes, it's likely that you’re the only one who notices them. Keep in mind that you are beautiful exactly as you are, and confidence is one of the beauty tips in the game.


Choose a Skin-Tightening Cream—And Rub Your Forehead Wrinkles Smooth

Using the right skin care products is key, but it’s not just what you use—it’s how you use it. Facial massage can de-puff tired eyes, add skin glow, smooth away frown lines and help reduce forehead wrinkles for a more youthful-looking complexion.

1. Take a skin tightening cream like Rénérgie Multi-Lift Ultra, and smooth it onto your face—starting with your forehead wrinkles.

2. Use your hands to massage upward from your cheeks to temples and from your chin to your ears.

3. Take a little more skin tightening cream, and apply it along your chin and down your neck to your collarbone.

4. Do the same sweeping motion along your collarbone and décolleté with the wrinkle cream, starting from the middle and moving out under your arms. Repeat three times with each hand.

5. Continue those long sweeping motions on your face—first outlining your face from the bottom to the top and then along your jaw (repeat each motion six times), sweep along your chin, cheekbones, and eyes (alternating hands and repeating six times).

6. Finally use your fingers to make vertical lines with the skin tightening cream along your forehead, moving from the outside in, then from the middle of your forehead to your inner brows (repeat each sweep three times).


Be Sun Smart—And Avoid Premature Forehead Wrinkles

You've heard it before—and that’s because it’s true. Around 80% of wrinkles are caused by exposure to the sun,[1] and your number one defense against future signs of aging is to protect your skin from the sun. The damaging effect of the sun's UV rays on skin only gets worse with age and even a 2% increase in damage can age your face by three years, according to dermatologists.[2] The golden rule to avoid premature forehead wrinkles and fine lines is to wear a high SPF, broad-spectrum sunscreen, like UV Expert BB Complete 1 SPF 50+ sunscreen for face, every single day.

Keep Your Pillowcase Clean—Or Beware of Fine Lines and Eye Wrinkles

Leaving your eye makeup on overnight, even occasionally, can add to the likelihood of fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes. Our beauty mantra: Always, always take off your makeup, even if it's late and you have an early morning work presentation. How to wake up bright-eyed in two easy steps:

1. To remove eye makeup, try Lancôme's Bi-Facil, a non-oily, instant eye makeup remover that takes off even the blackest waterproof mascara in a clean sweep. Soak two cotton pads in the eye makeup remover, let them rest on your eyes for a few seconds, and then gently wipe clean. It cleanses without any rubbing and is also suitable for sensitive skin.

2. Next, apply Lancôme’s Advanced Light Eye Light-PearlTM illuminating eye concentrate. This lightweight eye serum will leave eyes looking fresher and brighter. Use the pearl applicator to make tiny circles under eyes from the inside out to de-puff tired eyes, and then use it to make zigzag motions along fine lines and crow’s feet.


No Excuses—Wash Your Face!

Pollution accounts for the majority of premature aging skin amongst city dwellers, according to a scientific study.[3] How to prevent aging skin? Remove the impurities that pile up on your face throughout the day by thoroughly cleansing with an option that respects the skin’s natural protective barrier.

We like a gentle cleanser, such as Crème Mousse-confort foaming cleanser. Massage two pumps onto dry skin, and work it into your face for one minute. The sticky gel cleanser melts right into skin, turning into a creamy foam that clings onto makeup and grime, then rinses away to leave glowing skin feeling as comfortable and fresh as it is clean. Impurities: 0 Beautiful Skin: 1

Don’t Forget Your Eyes, The Firsts to Show Wrinkles

Neglecting your eyes is a skincare don’t—they’re the first area on your face to show signs of aging. Eye creams are formulated with ingredients that are meant for that delicate zone on your face.
