Learn how to prevent or stop forehead wrinkles in this article. Forehead wrinkles are caused by overworking or slack muscles in the face. The forehead muscle is often the culprit, as it moves upwards in an up and down motion, connected to the eyebrow muscles. These muscles develop "muscle memory" with every movement, causing deeper wrinkles as we age.
1. Lower Eyelid Liftup
First, lift only the lower eyelid without moving anything else. This can be challenging, so check out other videos for tips. For the exercise, place your pinkies on your forehead and touch your eyebrows to feel the movement. Close your eyes and slowly open them without raising your eyebrows, then open them as big as possible without moving any other muscles. Next, slowly squint and lift up the lower eye without wrinkling your forehead. Repeat slowly, open and close. This exercise is tiring, so do it slowly and only once a day. Positive side effects include more open and defined eyes.
2. Forehead Massage
Massage technique that can be done during your morning or night skincare routine. Instead of constantly lifting the muscles, which can lead to loss of elasticity and tension causing sagging, try massaging downwards. This quick massage can be done every time you do your skincare routine.
3. Stop doing bad facial expression habit
It's important to be aware of bad facial expression habits that can lead to wrinkles and overworked muscles. These habits can include constantly raising your eyebrows or making sudden surprised expressions. While some movement is okay, it's important not to overdo it. One common habit is touching your face, which can cause unintentional muscle movement and wrinkles. By being aware of these habits and consciously avoiding them, you can prevent further damage to your skin.
