Being upset will literally take a toll on you. If you constantly find yourself angry or sad, your corresponding facial contortions can leave a long lasting reminder of your emotions. Nobody likes frown lines, and that is why California Dermatology and Clinical Research Institute in San Diego offers clinical research studies to eradicate frown lines from your face.

What are Frown Lines?

Frowning and squinting can over time lead to deep wrinkles appearing between the eyes, the result of the tissues between the eyebrows developing into a fold. These wrinkles in the skin appear on the bridge of the nose, directly between the eyebrows. There are sometimes referred to as “the elevens” as they folds look like two number 1s.  . While these wrinkles do not pose any danger to your physical health, they can detract from your natural beauty and can lead to lower self-esteem and self-confidence.  

How Can I Prevent Frown Lines?

The trick to preventing frown lines is being a bit introspective.  If you can be aware of your facial expression, you can often relax your face and lessen or eliminate frown lines.  Here are a few tips to prevent unsightly frown lines from forming or getting worse.

Wear Sunglasses

Whenever you go outside wear sunglasses. Sunglasses are not just a fashion accessory, they are a crucial component to protecting your eyes and face from the harmful UV radiation coming from the sun. For frown lines, they reduce the likelihood that you will squint.  To see the value of sunglasses - look in the mirror and squint - imagine the folds and wrinkles you see becoming permanent.  That is what sunglasses can prevent.

Get a Full Night Sleep

We keep telling you this and it is really true,  getting enough rest is really important to your appearance.  If you are not well rested, this will give you more stress and anxiety, which can show on your face as frowning or lines.  

Do Not Smoke Cigarettes

Along with the myriad of dangers to your health cigarettes and tobacco pose, smoking can also give your face more wrinkles. Smoking can break down the collagen that is being produced in your face. Collagen is what gives skin elasticity, and this lack of elasticity can lead to wrinkles and frown lines.

Treatment with botulinum toxin

Botulinum toxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) is, without a doubt, the premier method to deal with frown lines.  Not only does the treatment make the lines much better or disappear completely, studies show that the lack of frown lines feeds back to your brain and makes you feel better.  If this sounds good to you, call us to find out more about the study.

How to Reduce the Appearance of Frown Lines?

While frown lines are a part of aging and cannot be completely eliminated no matter what, there are some methods to decrease the appearance of frown lines. While some of these methods may seem simple and common sense, they could pay dividends in improving your appearance as you age.

Moisturize Your Face in the Morning and at Night

Moisturize your face to avoid frown lines.

Try to apply a moisturizer in the morning and a stronger cream at night. Moisturized skin is fuller and smoother, meaning that it is less prone to wrinkles and frown lines forming. Dry skin is more prone to wrinkles, and also takes away the vibrant glow that healthy skin has.

Drink Plenty of Fluids

The same point about moisturizing the skin with lotions and creams applies to making sure you are hydrated. Not drinking enough fluids or a diet high in diuretics like coffee can dry out the skin as well. While it is important to fight frown lines by moisturizing the exterior of your skin, you also need to keep the interior of your skin moist by hydrating.

Exfoliate Your Skin

Exfoliating works to remove the layer of dead skin cells, revealing the youthful and more vibrant skin hidden beneath the surface. Exfoliating can brighten your skin, reducing the appearance of frown lines.

Apply Plenty of Sun Block

Living in San Diego means we see plenty of sunshine on a pretty regular basis. Protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun by applying plenty of sun block. Damage from overexposure to the sun leads to the formation of wrinkles, including frown lines. An easy way to make sure you are protected is to buy a moisturizer with sun protection in it, and incorporate it into your daily routine.

Satin Pillowcases

Satin pillowcases are significantly smoother than cotton. If you sleep on your side or stomach, try to make sure you have a smooth pillow to sleep on. Switching to a satin pillowcase can reduce lines both temporarily and in the long term.

Take Vitamins

There are a few vitamins that are directly related to skin health. Make sure to take a daily dose of Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, vitamin E, and Vitamin A. All of these vitamins keep the skin smooth, and can reduce the appearance of frown lines.

Treat Your Skin With Delicate Care

Stop scrubbing your skin with force or vigorously apply facial cream. Heavy scrubbing can damage the skin, irritating it and increasing the appearance of wrinkles.
