Causes & Treatments for Forehead Wrinkles

How to Reduce Forehead Wrinkles

Your 30s are an exciting time, but with this new chapter also comes the risk of wrinkles, leaving many of us wanting to know more about what causes them and how to fight back. Forehead creases, vertical lines on the forehead and deep forehead wrinkles – these physical signs of ageing occur when our skin starts to lose elasticity as we grow older. But it isn’t all doom and gloom. There are plenty of tips, tricks and skincare solutions available to help stop forehead lines in their tracks and give our faces back their youthful glow.

If you want to understand the cause of forehead wrinkles and what skincare routine you should use to reduce them, read our guide below. 

Apply Day and Night Creams

The first important step in combatting forehead wrinkles is a complete day and night moisturising system. Using day and night creams nourishes our skin and protects against the increased dryness we experience once over 30. 

A day cream like the Revitalift Laser X3 Anti-Ageing Day Moisturiser SPF 15 is specifically formulated to smooth out forehead lines and re-densify our skin; something we’re sure is on everyone’s mind when you spot your first forehead wrinkle at 30. 

Our skin is most permeable at night, so applying a night cream as part of your evening routine will go the extra distance in hydrating skin. Our go-to is the Revitalift Laser Night Cream, which uses powerful anti-wrinkle ingredients like Pro-Xylane and hyaluronic acid to help stimulate the natural skin cell regeneration process while you sleep.

When it comes to skincare that goes far in visibly reducing forehead wrinkles, day and night creams need to be added to your arsenal and applied regularly. To really level up your application, we recommend smoothing your cream on, in the direction of your wrinkles in a nose to forehead motion. Final tip – make sure you cover all of your vertical lines on the forehead which each application.  

Say Hello to Serums, Your New BFF

Alongside day and night creams, face serums are your next best bet in saying goodbye to those forehead creases. Serums are comprised of a higher concentration of active ingredients than creams, so they’re a superpower against fighting wrinkles. Applying a face serum is something we can all get behind, especially those of us who have seen our first forehead wrinkles already.

When looking for your serum, make sure to find one that contains hyaluronic acid, which plumps up wrinkles (even those deep forehead wrinkles) and smooths out your overall skin tone. 

Like creams, serums should be applied in both your morning and evening routine to effectively fight signs of ageing. Our daytime Filler Hyaluronic Acid 1.5% HA Serum and Laser X3 Pure Retinol Night Serum are your anti-ageing power duo, brightening and firming skin while decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. 

Give DIY Peeling a Try

Note yet ready for expensive dermatologist appointments – you can do an easy DIY peel all from the comfort of your own home. Glycolic acid peels work their magic by removing dead skin cells and increasing skin cell renewal. Apply weekly on cleansed skin and you’ll soon see the visible reduction of forehead lines.

We recommend using exfoliant pads like the Laser X3 Glycolic Acid Pads that give you the flexibility to choose a smooth or textured side.
