The Grooming Manual
Forehead wrinkles are amongst the first things guys notice that tell them "you're not so young anymore." What may originally seem to be simple expression lines eventually become permanent, and before you know it you've got deep forehead wrinkles.
Since forehead wrinkles in men are some of the earliest appearing signs of aging, it makes sense that you'd want to treat them. Other skin changes that give away your age - like under-eye puffiness, crow's feet, and age spots - tend to come on a little slower.
To help you look and feel your absolute best, learn how to treat your deep forehead wrinkles. That includes understanding how they form in the first place, how to prevent them, and what the best methods are for treating them.
What Causes Deep Forehead Wrinkles
In a word - age.
Collagen and elastin are the two proteins in your skin responsible for keeping it taut, firm, and elastic. You have high levels of these substances in your skin early in life. But starting in your mid to late twenties, that changes. You slowly start producing less and less of both proteins. This leads to a reduction in skin elasticity.
Combine that with the common expression of lifting or otherwise moving your eyebrows. Moving that muscle repositions your skin, folds it, and creates wrinkles. They go away instantly when you're young - but not so much when you're older.
Instead of bouncing back, your low-collagen and low-elastin skin gets stuck in a wrinkled position. The older you get, the more pronounced these lines become. That's why deep forehead wrinkles are more common in men over 40.
UV Damage Worsens Forehead Wrinkles
Sun exposure and the subsequent UV damage it causes is the #1 cause of early aging in men. There's no doubt about it - the sun is making your deep forehead wrinkles even deeper than they need to be.
That's why it's so important that you use an SPF moisturizer for men whenever you're going to be in the sun for even a brief period of time. The best way to protect your skin is using a lightweight SPF product daily.
Daily Defense Face Moisturizer with SPF 20
Our Daily Defense Face Moisturizer with SPF 20 is made with zinc oxide for broad spectrum UVA/B protection that's safe for your skin. It also keeps your skin hydrated and protected from dehydration with green tea extract and vitamin E.
Use it each morning after washing your face to keep UV damage to an absolute minimum and slow the development of deep forehead wrinkles.
Smoking Makes Forehead Wrinkles Deeper
Smoking is bad for your health in lots of ways - and it makes your deep forehead wrinkles worse too. Researchers have determined smoking and reduced collagen synthesis are linked. That means that smokers have even less collagen to work with. The older you get and the longer you smoke, the more pronounced your forehead wrinkles will be.
How to Treat Deep Forehead Wrinkles
Some causes of deep forehead wrinkles - like age itself - can't be treated. But others can. And there are lots of methods you should use if you want to keep your skin smooth and firm for as long as possible.
As already mentioned above, one is to stay out of the sun and use an SPF product daily. And quitting smoking is an excellent decision for many reasons, one of which is that it will help treat your deep forehead wrinkles.
Increase Collagen Production
Starting in your late 20’s, your body produces less and less collagen. That’s a problem if you want to prevent wrinkles.
Collagen and elastin are two of the main protein building blocks of your skin. They keep it firm, elastic, and smooth. But as collagen is depleted with age, you get saggier skin with deeper wrinkles. While this process is ultimately unavoidable, it can be slowed down dramatically and its effects blunted with the right skincare routine.
Use Skincare Products with Protein Peptides
Protein peptides are short chains of amino acids that promote increased production of collagen. Make sure they're a part of your anti-aging routine if you want to treat and reduce deep forehead wrinkles.
Reviving Day Serum
Our Reviving Day Serum is an excellent source of protein peptides. Its fast absorbing formula goes deep in to your skin for the maximum benefit. It's also made with hyaluronic acid (more on that below) and concentrated aloe vera to nourish your skin from the inside out.
Protein Peptides Booster
Another option is to use our Protein Peptides Booster to give an extra dose of this wrinkle-reducing ingredient to any of your skincare products. Add a few drops to your face moisturizer or anti-aging cream, then apply it as normal. The booster is a concentrated serum of peptides that work to reduce and prevent forehead wrinkles.
Restore Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in your skin that holds up to 1,000 times its weight in water. This makes it critical to your skin’s hydration levels.
Much like what happens with collagen, hyaluronic acid levels steadily decline the older you get. That’s why older men have drier, duller, more wrinkled skin than younger men.
One of the easiest and most effective ways to restore your skin’s moisture levels is through topical application of hyaluronic acid. And because hyaluronic acid is so critical to keeping your skin healthy and smooth, we include it in several of our most popular products.
Daily Essential Face Moisturizer
Our lightweight, fast-absorbing Daily Essential Face Moisturizer is perfect for everyday application. Use it each morning to lock in hydration and enhance your skin's protective barrier. Its standout ingredient is hyaluronic acid, so you know you'll get maximum moisture to your skin.
Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream
We recommend you use our Revitalizing Anti-Aging Cream each evening to treat and prevent deep forehead wrinkles. It contains hyaluronic acid to ensure you get as much moisture as possible to your skin.
Another ingredient that helps with deep forehead wrinkles is DMAE (dimethylethanolamine). This natural compound aids in facial muscles contraction, thus reducing sagging and wrinkles. This is a key component in the treatment of deep forehead wrinkles.
Hyaluronic Acid Booster
To get an extra dose of hyaluronic acid with any of your face care or anti-aging products, add a few drops of our Hyaluronic Acid Booster. This concentrated serum contains pure hyaluronic acid - no fillers.
We highly recommend this anti-aging booster for men with dry skin, guys who have early or deeper than normal wrinkles because of sun exposure, and anyone looking to slow down the development of deep forehead wrinkles.
You Can Treat Your Deep Forehead Wrinkles
Everyone ages, and wrinkles are a part of that process. But you don't have to have deep forehead wrinkles - especially not early in life - if you take good care of your skin.
Avoid bad habits that worsen wrinkles, like smoking and unprotected sun exposure. And make sure you are preventing wrinkles now with an anti-aging regimen that includes collagen boosting peptides and skin moisturizing hyaluronic acid.
