Forehead lines can be a telltale sign of aging; these deep creases may give your face a haggard or "angry" look. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, lines on the forehead are a normal consequence of aging, and may be increased by the frequent use of certain facial expressions, such as frowning or squinting. The lines extending from between your eyebrows to the bridge of your nose, called "frown lines," are one common type of forehead wrinkle. You may also notice wrinkles that run across your forehead and at the corners of your eyes. Although professional treatments like Botox are available to address forehead wrinkles, there are also various topical products you can try.
Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night
According to "Allure" magazine's 2010 Best of Beauty edition, Roc Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Night cream ranks as among the top anti-aging skin care products. This night cream features the powerful anti-aging ingredient retinol, and purports to reduce deep wrinkles and expression lines within approximately one month. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that is frequently used in anti-aging skincare products.
Neutrogena Ageless Intensives
"Elle" magazine's consulting dermatologists rate Neutrogena's Ageless Intensives Anti-Wrinkle Deep Wrinkle Filler as one of the most effective retinoid creams for decreasing the appearance of deep wrinkles. This formula combines retinol with hyaluronic acid, a well known plant-derived ingredient that is often used as an injectable dermal filler. Because retinol does have exfoliating properties, you may find it to be irritating at first if you have sensitive skin. If you find a retinol formula to be too harsh for your skin, "Elle" recommends trying a formula with amino acid peptides.
Dr. Brandt's Lines No More
Another product recommended by "Elle" magazine for prominent facial lines is Dr. Brandt's Lines No More, from the "Lineless" collection. This product is said to fill in deep creases while generating increased volume at a cellular level. It is designed to visibly reduce the depth of wrinkles on the forehead, as well as deep wrinkles in he eye and nasalabial area.
"Allure" magazine ranks Kinerase Cream as one of the best anti-aging skincare products. This cream, which is designed specifically for sensitive skin, comes in a hydrating formula that claims to work like a retinol without the irritation. It is hypoallergenic and appropriate for all skin types.
