Forehead lines appear naturally as we age; it is a perfectly normal and unfortunately unavoidable part of growing older. Forehead lines grow deeper over time due to the way the muscles contract when we make facial expressions. Often forehead lines can appear on people of quite a young age and can make them feel older than their years.
As we age, proteins in our skin start to break down. The two major proteins are collagen and elastin. These proteins give skin its youthful feel and keep it smooth. As they break down skin finds it harder to replenish and heal itself and lines and wrinkles appear. Lifestyle choices such as smoking and drinking excessively can speed up this breakdown. A high sugar content diet also expedites the process. Reducing your consumption of sugar and alcohol as well as giving up smoking can be an excellent way to delay lines and wrinkles from appearing. Another key factor is to always wear sunscreen and protect yourself from the sun’s damaging and harmful UV rays.
