Don’t look so serious – frown line favors evil eye


That hairless area that is located between the eyebrows is called the Glabella. A tiny piece of the body, but one that causes problems for many women (and men, of course).

Namely, in the course of the aging process, the so-called Glaballafaltewhich is often referred to as the “frown line”, gets deeper and deeper in the area above the root of the nose. In many cases, only hyaluronic acid or Botox help to remove the wrinkle.

Why do forehead wrinkles or also frown lines develop?

Frown lines, forehead wrinkles – there is hardly a person who can’t relate to these two terms.

With the Forehead wrinkles are the horizontal wrinkles that become visible on the forehead with age. Sometimes they come quite late, but they can appear from the age of 30.

The Frown lines on the other hand, run from the root of the nose across the eyebrows; in many cases they are two symmetrical wrinkles. But why does the so-called frown line develop in the first place? – On the one hand, age is responsible. From the age of 25, the body shuts down the production of elastin and collagen These are the proteins that are components of the human skin. The fact that the body produces less collagen is problematic. The protein stores water so that the skin remains firm and taut.

But not only age favors the formation of the so-called frown line. Also the Lifestyle plays a role that should not be underestimated. Too much alcohol, cigarettes, little sleep – the main reasons why wrinkles can form at a young age.

Also Urea (Urea) can be used. This causes an increase in the water content of the cornea – dry skin in particular tends to wrinkle.

Also the internal skin care is of importance. If you drink up to two liters of water a day (unsweetened tea or water), eat unsaturated fatty acids (such as fish), valuable proteins (dairy products or even legumes) and take in enough vitamin C, you can look forward to beautiful skin.

Facial massages also help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles such as forehead or frown lines. It is important that only very gentle pressure is applied to the facial skin. Massage can be combined with the daily use of creams, for example. It is advisable to “run” the index and middle fingers over the forehead wrinkle. Circular movements can also help to reduce the intensity of wrinkles.
