There is no denying that caring for mature skin comes with its own set of rules. While you may be prepared to deal with dark circles, wrinkles, and crow’s feet, there is one skin care concern that you may not know how to tackle. We’re talking about frown lines.      

If you’ve been asking yourself what to do about the appearance of your frown lines, we’re here to help. Below, we’re giving you the full scoop on frown lines (aka 11 lines) and sharing tips on how to update your daily routine to keep your skin in tip-top shape.

WHAT ARE FROWN LINES?

According to the Cleveland Clinic, frown lines or 11 lines are wrinkles that form on the forehead and between the eyebrows. As the name suggests, they mimic the shape of the number 11 and can give your face an angry expression. 

The cause of frown lines, you ask? They develop because of small facial muscle contractions that build up over time as skin ages. Since aging skin tends to lose its elasticity and ability to retain moisture, skin loosens over time, causing frown lines to become more prominent. In turn, smiling, frowning, squinting, and other normal facial expressions can cause these wrinkles to become more noticeable as you age. Smoking and sun damage also play a role in the development of frown lines.

CAN FROWN LINES BE REMOVED?

Good news, the Cleveland Clinic states that you can manage the appearance of 11 lines with the help of various over-the-counter options, such as skin care products and treatments.

HOW TO MANAGE VISIBLE FROWN LINES?

Wondering how you can help manage visible 11 lines? You’ve come to the right place! Keep reading for four tips that will help revamp your daily routine and reduce the appearance of frown lines over time.

1. USE A MATURE SKIN CLEANSER

One of the easiest ways to improve the appearance of your skin, including frown lines, is using a hydrating cleanser in your everyday routine. Mature skin naturally calls for nourishing products that can provide the skin with moisture, which in turn helps to reduce the appearance of some visible signs of aging. We love the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Nourishing Cream Cleanser, which is formulated with replenishing oils to gently cleanse skin without over-drying for a soft, smooth, and supple finish.

2. NEVER SKIP OUT ON MOISTURIZER

Not only does the right moisturizer provide your skin with long-lasting hydration, but it also goes a long way in minimizing the appearance of frown lines. Since dry skin is prone to pesky wrinkles, the key is to keep your skin moisturized to minimize their appearance. Reach for the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Moisturizer Fragrance Free to get the ball rolling. Formulated with Pro-Retinol and centella asiatica, this offering helps to reduce visible wrinkles, firm skin, and repair the skin barrier, which goes hand in hand with managing frown lines.

3. REACH FOR A MOISTURIZER WITH SPF

Like it or not, sun protection is an absolute must! Since sun damage is known to cause visible signs of aging like wrinkles, you’ll want to add a broad-spectrum sunscreen to your routine stat! A smart way to add SPF into the mix is to use a product that blends moisturizer and broad-spectrum sunscreen into one. That way, you can pare down your routine without having to layer multiple products. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Tone Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen, which is formulated with imperial peony and broad-spectrum SPF to renew and revive skin while providing sun protection for a radiant finish.

When it comes to sun protection, sunscreen alone is not enough! Limit your amount of time in the sun (especially between 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., which are the sun’s peak hours), seek shade, and cover up exposed areas in long sleeves, pants, a broad-brimmed hat, and UV-blocking sunglasses. 

4. ADD A SERUM INTO THE MIX

While there are plenty of products you can use to help minimize the look of frown lines, you can never go wrong with a face serum. Face serums work wonders to provide your skin with various benefits such as hydration and radiance, which helps to reduce the appearance of signs of aging skin. Give the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives 1.5% Pure Hyaluronic Acid a go. This serum replenishes skin with hydration and visibly reduces wrinkles in just two weeks with continued use. As a result, skin is visibly plumped and refreshed.
