Your Forehead: Forever Young
By Shellie Terry Benson |
It's one of the first areas to show the signs of aging, mostly due to facial expressions and the fact that it's a rather large blank slate of skin uninterrupted by other facial features. So when the lines start marching across your forehead, you'll want to take a multi-pronged approach to keep them at bay. Here's what you'll need for a tight, smooth forehead:
Consider starting earlier. More women in their early to mid-30s are getting preventative injections from muscle-freezing products like Botox and Dysport. These injections can keep lines from forming earlier than they normally would, but keep in mind: You'll need repeated injections for upkeep.
Add hyaluronic acid. It comes in supplement, topical or injection form, and adding it back to your skin (when your skin naturally starts to lose it with aging) will help add volume because it binds to and absorbs water, giving a fullness to the skin. Injections in droopy brows can immediately improve the look of your forehead and eyes.
Lessen lines with a peel. This is a treatment for your entire face, but a chemical peel addresses many issues that creep up above your brows: acne, hyperpigmentation, fine lines and rough texture. You'll need a few days to heal, but your new skin will be glowing and smooth.
Add some bangs. When all else fails, ask your hairdresser to chop you some fringe. Bangs will hide any lines and letting them hang a bit longer and swept to the side is a superhot, of-the-moment look.
