Let’s Talk: Forehead Wrinkles


forehead wrinklesWrinkles, as a rule, are a pretty ordinary part of aging— forehead wrinkles being no exception. Whether vertical or horizontal, forehead wrinkles are super-common. (I like to call my furrow lines my ‘elevens’ but they are more technically known as glabellar lines) These wrinkles are caused by the repetition of normal facial expressions as well as exposure to the sun.

Here’s what you can do about forehead wrinkles:

  • Exfoliate with a chemical exfoliant such as Glycolic Acid. We love this exfoliating cleanser.
  • Use skin care products with ingredients such as Collagen (or ingredients that help boost Collagen, such as Peptides). Other things to look out for: Hyaluronic Acid and Elastin.
  • Keep your skin well-hydrated. Even young people look a bit wrinkly without proper hydration. If your usual moisturizer isn’t enough, you may want to switch to a night cream or specific anti-aging cream before bed (we love this one with Peptides).
    [Have we mentioned that we love Peptides for fighting wrinkles? Here’s why]
  • Keep the sun off your face as much as possible and wear a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15. Definitely invest in a few cute sun hats. Having bangs likely doesn’t hurt either (not that we’re suggesting you cut your hair!).

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.


  1. There are certain ways to atleast minimize the wrinkle on our forhead or prevent it from coming. Using the right products that are dermatologist tested and no parabens. Right cleansing and using spf.

  2. I totally agree! I moisturize my skin, keep it hydrates and use Mario Badescu products to stay fresh!
