Forehead wrinkles are the result of a loss in skin elasticity, which gets worse over time because the body has increasingly lower levels of collagen production. That is why one of the most effective recommendations that can help to fight these lines and prevent new wrinkles from appearing is boosting your collagen intake through your diet. How? It's easy! Remember that there are foods that are rich in protein and therefore, are great allies to slow skin aging. The best ones include:
- Fruits rich in vitamin C: oranges, lemons, grapefruit, tangerines, strawberries, kiwi, papaya, blueberries...
- Vegetables rich in vitamin C, vitamin K and antioxidants: broccoli, cabbage, spinach, beetroot, aubergine, endive, cauliflower...
- Fish rich in omega-3.

Besides watching your diet, to get rid of forehead wrinkles at home your skin needs to stay well hydrated throughout the day, not only through using good nourishing and moisturizing creams, but also by drinking plenty of water and fluids. It is recommended to drink at least 2 liters of water a day, which can be combined with taking natural juices made from fruit and vegetables, if you want to benefit from the rejuvenating properties of some of their ingredients. To prevent wrinkles on your face and for a brighter complexion, have drinks such as aloe vera juice, apple, orange and cucumber juice, carrot, beetroot and strawberry juice or cherry juice.
External hydration is also essential to fight forehead wrinkles and the ones on the rest of your face. So besides cleansing your skin with a facial gel tailored to your skin type, choose wrinkle creams enriched with vitamin A, vitamin E or ones that contain components such as collagen, elastin or AHA acids. They are great to reduce expression lines and allow the skin to recover the elasticity and flexibility it has lost. Don't forget to exfoliate your face at least once a week and this way you will always keep it free of impurities and protected against external agents that can damage it.
Forehead wrinkles are more noticeable than others. Sometimes this is because we tend to raise eyebrows frequently or furrow our brow which puckers the skin more. If your problem is that you furrow your brow too much, you might have difficulty seeing things correctly or clearly. Therefore, it is important that you get your eyes checked and wear your glasses, it will not only ensure that these lines are not as noticeable, but it will benefit your eye health too.
And you can always give some extra nutrition to the skin on your face by applying masks made from natural products that make it look younger and smoother. The most effective homemade anti-wrinkle masks are those that contain ingredients like avocado, egg, honey, carrot, cucumber and yogurt. Cleanse your face well before applying a mask, leave it on for 20 minutes and wash off with warm (never hot) water. This will renew the skin leaving it more radiant and beautiful.
