Forehead wrinkles are horizontal fine lines on the forehead that become more prominent with age. They appear when raising your eyebrows or being expressive and can deepen over time. They are an inevitable and normal part of aging, but with an anti-aging skincare routine and lifestyle changes, the appearance of forehead wrinkles can be improved.
Read on to explore what causes forehead wrinkles, how to get rid of forehead wrinkles, and the best face cream for wrinkles on the forehead.
WHAT CAUSES FOREHEAD WRINKLES?
Forehead wrinkles are caused by several factors, including excessive sun exposure, aging, and genetics. The main cause of these fine lines, however, is the repetitive movement of the frontalis muscle on the forehead when making facial expressions. Paired with the natural depletion of collagen and elastin levels in the skin, these fine lines deepen with age.
HOW TO PREVENT FOREHEAD WRINKLES
Changes in lifestyle habits can help to prevent the deepening of forehead wrinkles and delay the formation of new lines.
Follow an anti-aging routine and incorporate active ingredients like retinoids and hyaluronic acid into your regimen to keep skin looking younger for longer. Protect skin from harmful UV rays and apply SPF daily, as UV rays break down the collagen in the skin, often causing premature aging and dark spots. Wear sunglasses when outdoors to avoid squinting and frowning, two facial expressions that contribute to the appearance of forehead wrinkles. Sleep for 7-9 hours a night to support the skin’s natural overnight renewal process. Stay hydrated with a rich diet in antioxidants to hydrate and nourish the skin from the inside out.
HOW TO GET RID OF FOREHEAD WRINKLES
To reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles, it’s important to maintain healthy beauty habits.
STEP 1: EXFOLIATE
By gently sloughing away the skin’s surface layer, exfoliation supports the skin’s natural renewal process, revealing the smoother and brighter-looking skin beneath.
Adapted to all skin types, SCRUB & MASK is an anti-wrinkle exfoliating face mask. Its dual exfoliation action starts with a scrub leaving an intense new-skin effect: perlite spheres gently exfoliate the skin while a proteolytic enzyme stimulates skin peeling. Once the scrub is finished, the mask’s texture transforms into an active skincare mousse: oxygen microbubbles are thus freed to allow suffocating skin to breathe.
Gently massage onto clean skin. Once the exfoliating is done, leave to rest, the texture transforms into an effervescent skincare mousse. When the bubbles have disappeared, it's time to rinse. Do not allow the product to come into contact with your eyes. Always use SPF the following day, as exfoliation with acids can cause sensitivity to sunlight.
STEP 2: USE AN ANTI-AGING FACIAL TREATMENT FOR 10 DAYS
A lightweight anti-aging facial treatment with a high concentration of active ingredients, NCEF-SHOT helps to correct wrinkles, firmness, and radiance in 10 days.* It supports skin’s regeneration and offers a daily dose of active ingredients equivalent to a meso-injection.**
Apply to the entire face and neck morning and night before moisturizing for 10 days.
STEP 3: APPLY ANTI-WRINKLE SERUM DAILY
Highly concentrated, anti-aging serums are formulated with smaller molecules that are easily absorbed by the skin. Typically, they’re infused with powerful active ingredients, including peptides, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, to effectively help reduce the signs of aging.
TIME-FILLER INTENSIVE serum was inspired by aesthetic medicine techniques for intensive correction of wrinkles on the face. Formulated with powerful peptides to plump the appearance of this forehead wrinkle treatment helps to reduce the appearance of forehead creases and frown lines.

STEP 4: USE FILORGA’S BEST FACE CREAM FOR WRINKLES MORNING AND NIGHT

STEP 5: APPLY A SHEET MASK 2-3 TIMES A WEEK
Thanks to the occlusive design of sheet masks, they’re great for delivering potent ingredients to the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of forehead wrinkles and fine lines on the face.
TIME-FILLER MASK is an anti-aging sheet mask infused with concentrated serum, which takes on the challenge of leaving skin smoother and visibly younger in just 15 minutes. At the heart of its formula, natural collagen is combined with active tensors to plump the skin and smooth the features, while a cell booster stimulates skin regeneration for a reinforced anti-aging action.
Apply the gel side of the mask to the skin and smooth down to fit the contours of your face. Leave on for 15 minutes, then peel off and massage any excess product into the décolleté using upward movements.
