Reduce Frown Lines

Do you have the job-loss blues? Are you naturally pessimistic or just a deep thinker? Whatever the reason for the lines between your eyes, you might be able to reduce their appearance with the following measures:

One. Try to relax the muscles of your forehead. Frown, then smile. You'll notice that when you smile, your face muscles move up and out, especially those of your forehead. Try to be aware of your expression and the tension in your face, and make a conscious effort to relax your forehead muscles through out the day.

Two. Massage those muscles!

You can try facial exercises as well. I've read arguments for and against them, and I've started to do them myself. You can find some information about facial exercises here.

Three. Use Retin A. Regular users report decreased appearance of wrinkles -I know this a natural beauty site, but Retin A is supposed to be highly effective. Some natural wrinkle reducers are rose-hip oil (which I've written about here previously), coconut oil, baobab oil, grapeseed oil, and shea butter. All are said to regenerate the skin and improve elasticity.

Four. Drink lots of water. It hydrates the skin, improves the complexion and is necessary for good health, and therefore, good skin. On the same note, watch your diet; try to stay away from processed foods.
