About 30% of women under the age of 35 regularly use anti-wrinkle products. This includes one in five women under the age of 24. If your eyebrows furrow, wrinkles could make you look older than your age.
Here are a few tips you can use to smooth out a furrowed brow. With these tips, you can improve your appearance for younger-looking skin!
Dehydration can cause your skin to dry out, leading to wrinkles. Without enough moisture, the wrinkles you already have will look more prominent, too. Your skin will begin to look pallid and flaky if you're not drinking enough water.
Try to drink half your weight in ounces each day. Otherwise, try drinking more water-rich foods, including:
Always have a water bottle on hand, especially if you plan to spend time out in the sun.
Hydrate your skin from the inside out and the outside in. The right moisturizer can make a big difference to your skin's health. Remember, your wrinkles will look more pronounced if your skin is dry.
In fact, dry skin can cause your furrowing eyebrows to crease further. The skin cells that help your skin appear plump can shrivel away if you're not moisturizing.
Use a light moisturizer in the morning and a heavier option at night to replenish your wrinkled, dehydrated skin.
Before heading outside, make sure to apply a thick layer of sunscreen. The sun's harmful UV-A and UV-B rays can destroy your skin's collagen and elastin fibers. Collagen and elastin are proteins that keep your skin looking taut, firm, and plump.
Your body's ability to produce collagen naturally declines as you get older. You could develop a furrowed brow as a result.
When your skin lacks collagen and elastin, your furrowed brow will appear more prominent.
Look for a daily SPF 50 sunscreen to protect your skin. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses before heading outside too.
Sunglasses can protect your eyes and help you squint less often. Otherwise, squinting can cause wrinkles to form. Wrinkles develop when we continue moving muscles in the face, leading to creases.
Try to catch yourself if you start making faces or squinting in the sun. Relax your face and focus on maintaining lowered eyebrows. If you keep repeating the same movements, wrinkles will form.
Balance Your Diet
You are what you eat! Adjusting your diet can improve your skin health before a furrowed brow forms.
Try eating a balance of vitamins and minerals by adding a range of fruits and vegetables to your diet. Choose fruits and vegetables of different colors. Each color indicates a different vitamin!
Providing your body with nutrients will help your skin thrive. It also helps your skin turn over dead cells rapidly.
Consider adding more vitamins C and E to your diet to minimize wrinkles.
Otherwise, consider the bad habits that might affect your skin health. For example, ingesting harmful substances like nicotine can cause collagen to break down.
Professional treatments at a licensed medspa can help smooth your furrowed brow.
Botox uses botulinum toxin A in its purified form. The Botox compound is injected into your skin to relax the muscle tissue causing the wrinkle in the first place. Botox is effective at smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
You can pair Botox with other skincare treatments to tackle that brow.
Consider looking into dermal fillers this year. Fillers can promote elastin and collagen production. They also fill up the space they're injected into (in this case, your brow).
A brow filler can hide your wrinkles for smooth, youthful-looking skin.

Massage Your Forehead
Treat yourself to a forehead massage before bed. Massaging your forehead can increase blood flow to the area. Increasing blood flow can encourage your body's natural healing processes.
It can also help release any tightness in the area.
Use small, circular moments when massaging your forehead.
Otherwise, try exercising your face. Weak muscles can cause weak skin, leading to sagging and wrinkles.
Apply a Patch or Retinol
Consider adding a silicone patch to your beauty routine. Silicone patches can aid your wrinkle-smoothing efforts. You can find patches specifically designed for smoothing brows.
The patch will act as a protective barrier while trapping moisture around the area overnight. It can also increase blood flow to boost collagen production.
Otherwise, add retinol to your evening skincare routine. Anti-aging products that contain retinol (a vitamin A derivative) can stimulate collagen production. They also boost cell turnover to ease away fine lines and wrinkles.
Retinol can increase your sensitivity to the sun. Make sure to apply it in the evening, instead of each morning.
Check Your Products
Choose skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid supports skin hydration. Its plumping effect can smooth away fine lines and wrinkles.
Otherwise, look for antioxidant serums (such as a vitamin C serum). Serums can protect your skin from free radicals, environmental pollutants, and further damage.
Always wash your face before bed. Make sure you're not falling asleep with makeup on.
