Ageing is natural and you can’t really do anything about it. Despite being fully aware of this fact, spotting the first grey or wrinkle is still an unpleasant surprise for almost every woman. One such pesky sign of ageing is the furrow between your brows aka frown lines.
No, it doesn’t occur because you probably frown too much. It is a result of sun damage, loose skin, stress and genetic factors. Botox is an option to get a face uplift and a smooth forehead, but if the dreaded B-word is not your cup of tea, there are other alternatives to it as well.
Here are five ways to get rid of frown lines on your forehead without Botox. Give ‘em a try.
You can naturally tone the area between your brows by gently massaging it every night. Apply any facial oil and use your fingertips to massage the area vertically. Press your fingertips firmly and massage horizontally towards the temples for about five to seven minutes. Doing this regularly will smoothen the frown lines.
The next best thing after botox, chemical peels can make your frown lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet go away. The peels have active ingredients and acids that go deeper in the skin and remove wrinkles and fine lines, overall improving elasticity and making your skin firm and smooth.
Just like facial massage, some exercises and expressions can improve the skin’s surface and remove frown lines. Fit in this practice in your daily skincare routine to bid adieu to brow furrows. Cover your temples with your palms and press and pull the skin slightly in a way that it tightens the forehead. Now, move your palm in a circular motion for a couple of minutes. Stop and move it in the opposite direction in circular motions for another two minutes. Repeat this three times.
Egg white mask
You can trust natural ingredients for all your skincare woes. For frown lines too, you can try a tried and tested home remedy using egg whites. Whisk one egg white and apply it on your forehead over and between your brows with a facial brush. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it off. Egg whites help tighten the skin and reduce forehead wrinkles.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, flaxseed oil can help make your skin plump and youthful in no time. It is one of the most effective remedies for frown lines and can get the job done in just two weeks. Gulp one tablespoon of flaxseed oil twice a day for smooth and supple skin and wrinkle-free forehead.
