How to Use Frownies Correctly

By Aksana Nikolai

Frownies is the name of a wrinkle reducing treatment. They consist of facial pads made of unbleached paper and a vegetable-based adhesive. The manufacturer claims that the product temporarily reduces the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet and marionette lines caused by frowning, smiling and squinting. When applied to the face, Frownies are said to retrain facial muscles to assume a relaxed and natural appearance. For optimal results, you should use Frownies in the proper manner.

Step 1

Cleanse and rinse your face as you would normally. Allow your face to dry, then apply moisturizer and allow it to absorb for a few minutes.

Step 2

Stimulate circulation by massaging the areas with lines and wrinkles with your fingertips for approximately 10 seconds. Focus on your forehead, the corners of your eyes and mouth and the area between your eyebrows.

Step 3

Tear along the perforations to separate the Frownies from each other.

Step 4

Use the Frownies Hydrator Spray or water to moisten the shiny side of each Frownie.

Step 5

Use one hand to smooth your skin and hold it taught with two fingers and use your free hand to press a Frownie on. Hold it against your skin until it adheres.

Step 6

Keep Frownies on for at least three hours at a time. Ideally , you should wear Frownies overnight.

Step 7

To remove, dip a washcloth into warm water and press it against a Frownie for 10 seconds or more--until the Frownie peels off.

Step 8

Use Frownies every day during the first 30 days. After that, wear them three or more times a week.
