    Default Smoothen Forehead Wrinkles?

    OK so i have some wrinkles on m forehead, i'm nearing thirties, and i just want to take into consideration what products are out there. I dont want any botox, or cosmetic procedures, basically creams, lotions, moisturisers etc. The ones i have give an unpleasant look, and i only want to know if and what i can do about it. Are products based on gender, or are they basically the same?

    Sorry but once they are there that is it. No cream will get rid of them, unless very fine no cream with soften them. Its Botox or just realize no one else is noticing them.

    Diet, lifestyle & genetics probably play a greater part, but any decent moisturiser will help to keep the skin looking good.
    They don't have to be massively costly, although different people favour different brands for a variety of reasons.

    I think vitamin c and many other anti oxidants help, oxidation creates more wrinkles i have heard

    Unfortunately we women are always looking for the quick fix and the wonder product, sold to us by the brands. If such a product really existed then all the other products would be totally redundant. Oh and no plastic surgeons either. Just look at the ads with say Julia Roberts for Lancome, she is air brushed so much it doesn't even look like her.

    Fact of life, we all age, nothing will stop it happening. Just enjoy life and use whatever you like start early and it helps. But we will all get wrinkles.
    A high sun factor is a really good start.

    Well of course this is whats really taking place.

    Bur personally I'm not looking for a wonder product to use once, and get results, or even for something to eliminate wrinkles altogether.

    How do creams work? Do they act as moisturizers and antioxidants, so they allow skin to be more elastic and less fragile? So do they perform as a preemptive measure to prevent wrinkles, or can they restore it to wrinkle-less fashion?

    I'm not really stressing much, and i can accept it, if nothing can be done, I'm just looking to get informed on the exact science and what is really going on.

    Hey .. don't panic ... wrinkles don't mean they're there for life ... you have several ways to combat aging signs ... and offset them well ...

    For example, Moroccan Argan Oil does wonders to combat aging signs of the skin. I personally use HY Vitamins Argan Body Oil for my skin and my skin feels a lot better now ...

    Go with all-natural beauty products to reduce side-effects ... and for better results. With natural products, the results are slow but lasting and no side-effects

    It depends on the types of lines you have. If they are caused by habitual movements, no creams or serums can help. BTA is the answer because it relaxes those muscles that make those movements, but do your homework in finding a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist to inject you. You only have one face so don't ruin it by going to someone who can offer you the lowest price. You don't go to a cardiologist to have a brain tumor removed, you know what I mean?

    BTA, over time, can help train you to not overuse your forehead muscles so much so some of those fine lines may disappear. The ones that remain even after injected can be helped with fillers.

    If the lines are caused by frequent squinting ( a lot of people squint but do not realize it ), you should get your eyes checked. If the skin texture has leathery and rough appearance, it's possibly sun damage so you need to use a good physical sunscreen ( it contains either zinc oxide or titanium oxide or both ) to prevent further damage. A prescription tretinoin, use nightly, can help with the fine lines, smoothens skin and gives you a rosy glow.

    I presented several options as you did not mention the types of lines you have ie the elevens between the brows or horizontal lines across the forehead.

    I'm around your age and recently had my first Botox to correct a deep horizontal forehead line. I paid $11 per unit, and 10 units were used, so it was only $110. I know you said you didn't want to do Botox, but I could not be happier with the results, and continued over time, it's not just a corrective treatment, it's actually preventive as well.

    The nurse recommended a retinol as the most important thing I should be using on my skin (well, I guess the second most important, after sun screen). I recently purchased Perricone MD High Potency Evening Repair, which contains retinol.

    Taking hydrolyzed type 2 collagen can help some. I was stunned by the difference it makes. Retinol never did much for me, but Retin-A, followed by a vitamin C serum worked wonders. I no longer bother using Retin-A because I use a PMD now as it's a very easy, quick way to exfoliate (takes about five minutes once a week) and I don't want to overdo it. I'm using up some of my leftover Retin-A on the back of my hands.
    For a while, I was using an LED lamp for 30 minutes, followed by around 20 minutes using a NuFace device every day. During the 30 minutes under the lamp I'd multi-task and do my back stretches. I stopped using those tools when my dad's health started failing; I can't leave him unattended for 30 minutes now. I can see a significant change in forehead wrinkles, crows' feet, sagging, etc., so I guess those things were helping.

    I have skin holding up well and NO genetic advantage; my mom's wrinkled early and mine is delicate by nature, reactionary, had acne/rosacea, no advantage out the gate.

    These things I find to be most important, in order of importance:
    Moisturizer after washing or wetting face, always. Don't let it dry completely without moisturizing, ever. Use something gentle in the morning and something anti-aging, exfoliating, active at night.
    7,5 or more hours of sleep each night - sleep is overlooked but it's during sleep that the body heals from the day, you can't do anything to get around the need for sleep, can't make up for it in other ways.
    Stay out of the sun most of the time if you can, wear a wide-brim hat when you are having a day outside, I don't worry about incidental amounts of sun like running in the mornings when it's barely up or walking from the car to work, but for long walks or days at the beach or park, HAT!
    Retin-A, oh yeah! Just go to the doctor and ask for it, it's good, cleared up the rosacea and keeps the skin looking better, unwinds small sun damages, slows down the effect of time on the skin. Get the more emollient one and use this as night cream.
    Eye cream every night.
    Exercise, keeping the face muscles active, expressive. Sort of opposite strategy from Botox but it seems to be working, I figured exercise had kept the rest of me from sagging so maybe it helps in the face too, bringing circulation and building small amounts of muscle.

    These are the things I do and they do work for me. If I had to pick two, they would be sleep and never letting the skin dry out.

    You could also use a home-made light exfoliating paste/mask and also, there are also natural ways to moisturize the skin (there's plenty of info you can search for online) to help with it and I would also agree to go see a Doc and present your specific concerns, RetinA is good and effective but it may be harsh on some more sensible skin types.
    Get plenty of water, sleep and avoid stress as prevention for deeper ones. And the most important of all avoid the sun but not too much though we all need those rays too.
    As for your question yes some products are gender based as men and women's skin differ.

    I have been using dermaset cream for wrinkles since years. I too used to think that these creams don't work but I was wrong. Dermaset actually diminished my wrinkles and fine lines after using it for just few weeks. And yes diet and healthy lifestyle too plays an important role.

    Try to use products with beta carotene it is known for its anti aging factor. It prevents premature skin aging like dark spots, freckles, wrinkles and other skin problems. You will also need to change your diet and lifestyle to have a better skin. Exercise at least 5 times per week and drink plenty of water to flush the toxins in your body.

    I get it. I just want to know how creams work. There no way im getting bottox at this age. I'm young its not that noticeable for me to really worry. So what is the role of creams. Do they have any effect on reversing marks, or are they only preventative

    The are a preventative, sun screen all year round and not moving your forehead much will also help.

    Hi! I know what you mean as I am nearly 30 and I have my first wrinkles! As I experienced the depression in my life too often I think it resulted in wrinkles. So now I am looking for all possible methods and trying a lot of different remedies. I have started from the expensive creams vichy and other French cosmetics. But then I didn't see any result and decided to try something easy and simple. Here I have found a lot of things that are really cheap and are always at hand. This is the most important for me when it is easy and convenient to apply something. As a person grows older, the production of collagen decreases. With this, skin loses its elasticity. The loss of skin elasticity that occurs with ageing means skin becomes less firm over the years, leading to wrinkles and sags. The movements of the muscles in the forehead produce frown lines and forehead lines. Crow's feet are also caused by muscle movement when you squint. Too much exposure to the sun, dehydration etc also causes wrinkles on forehead to appear. Deep forehead wrinkles can make you look older than you feel. There are many natural skin care products that you can find in your home to get rid of forehead wrinkles.By the way, do you know that cigarette smoking enhances skin aging by releasing the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin that are essential components of the skin. Hope you dont smoke? Insufficient sleeping cause dark circles and wrinkles both. It is advised to take a sleep of at least 7 hours in the whole day to be relaxed and fresh. On an average 7-9 hours of sleep is enough for a person, but it varies from person to person. Decide how many proper sleeping hours do you need and analyze the changes that come after taking full sleep. During sleeping hours our body produces more human growth hormones that help in making skin thicker and elastic to retain it wrinkles free. So hope you will the helpful methods from the source I told you and manage to succeed! Will be waiting for your experience story!

    Every woman has a dream to have very soft and smooth skin always. On our skin there are lots of skin problems such as wrinkles, roughness, and surface roughness: all these appear slowly, so it is very significant to follow the skin to help it deal with the first signs of ageing. I have a perfect solution for this problem. >> << follow this and it will definitely help you.

    The essential oils can help by keeping your skin moisturized, and can thereby prevent some of the damage resulting from a lack of elasticity.

    I'm 39 and I tried Azzalure (form of botox) and loved it. However the price to keep it up was what stopped me from getting it again. I found that using an AHA helps, and I absolutely love sheet masks. There are a lot out there to choose from and I think Hada Labo - a Japanese brand actually - would be a great place to start with them, or Lovemore brand instead of the ones you find at Sephora or Target or Boots. Moving to a Korean skincare routine has really worked for me, especially considering I cannot use retinol products at this time.

    Antiaging creams aren't all bull, things with vitaminc, peptides, AHA and BHA and retinols are effective but with skincare prevention is about 1000x easier than reversing, unless you are getting injectables. Sunscreen, every single day is the most important.
    I like stuff from Paula's Choice and The Ordinary. I'm 39, starting using antioxidants about 12 years ago, and am very smooth faced. But my brother, who is my indentical but male, is 2 years younger and has pretty deep lines but, he works construction, doesn't use sunscreen

    Oh, FYI, Botox works best as preventative too. I'm actually going in for my first session soon.
