Beauty heroes to help you smooth, fill and prevent frown lines - we think they're better than botox!
26 March 2015
It’s true that when it comes to our skin, not all wrinkles are created equal. While a smattering of twinkly lines around the eyes can be quite charming and a sign of a life filled with laughter, frown lines (or ‘number 11s’ as you might know them) are not quite as welcome for most of us.
Frown lines can appear as two deep furrows nestled between the eyebrows or horizontal lines straight across the forehead. They develop as a result of the thinning skin around this area, sun damage and with movements of the muscles on your face. It’s a bit of a myth that excessive frowning or stern expressions cause these wrinkles, you may well have developed yours from laughing, but they can make you look grumpier than you feel inside and nobody wants that – so how to get rid of frown lines?
Are you feeling tempted by Botox or injectable fillers to get rid of frown lines? When administered with care and attention by experts, these solutions can be very effective. If you are thinking about going down that route, always ensure you visit a qualified medical professional, and have a thorough consultation beforehand. But if you’re not looking to take a step into the world of injectables and would prefer to stick with topical products, there are some brilliantly effective beauty breakthroughs in this area.
From stick-on patches that smooth to targeted serums that plump and fill, a primer that blurs for a soft-focus effect and a brilliant at home light-emitting device that can re-boot collagen and elastin production, we’ve rounded up our top products to get rid of frown lines, so you can pick the right one for you.
Simply click through to turn that frown upside down (or should we say make it vanish entirely!)
