Beauty Clinic: Wrinkly forehead S.O.S!
Q. I need forehead help! I’m 45 and my skin wrinkles and creases incredibly easily. I have a lot of horizontal expression lines and some sleep lines that have become permanent and very noticeable. How can I stop them getting worse and prevent more coming? A. We are going to recommend a favourite product called Frownies, now a century old. These facial patches were developed especially to soften wrinkles on the forehead and between the eyes.
According to the manufacturers, the patches, which are made from natural skin-friendly materials that allow the skin to breathe, will banish even deep lines over time.
To activate the vegetable adhesive, you wet each one – or dampen with Frownies Rose Water Hydrator Spray, which also contains vitamin E and hydrating hyaluronic acid – then smooth out the skin and stick on. While you sleep, the Frownies hold your skin flat and relaxed so the muscles relax.
Pharmacist Shabir Daya also recommends products containing tightening egg albumen. Sudden Change Anti-Wrinkle Under-Eye Lift by Health Aid is a quick fix serum designed for to make the appearance of wrinkles, lines, puffiness and dark circles disappear instantly. According to Shabir, it is equally suitable for the forehead.
For long term effect, however, he recommends investing in Active Serum by iS Clinical. It is designed to diminish fine lines and wrinkles and you can feel the tingling immediately as it goes to work. It also evens out pigmentation and helps treat surface acne.
