3 Ways Treat Forehead Wrinkles Without Botox

Forehead wrinkles, those pesky lines that seem to deepen every time you raise your eyebrows in surprise or furrow them in concentration. While ageing is a natural process, there's no harm in wanting to smooth out those lines and keep our skin looking its best. Here’s my guide on how to treat forehead wrinkles, featuring facial massage, facial taping, and top-notch skincare like SkinBetter Science’s InterFuse® Intensive Treatment LINES. All without a Botox needle in sight.

Facial Massage

One of the simplest yet effective ways to soften forehead wrinkles is through facial massage. Massaging the forehead can help relax the muscles, which in turn softens the lines and improves overall skin elasticity. Don't forget, Botox is just relaxing and paralysing the muscles at the end of the day. If you can massage your face regularly, it will help those lines relax without needing to inject. (I'm obsessed with this too, if you see me out and about pinching my forehead you now know why! Literally everywhere - especially in the gym!)

Here’s how to do it:

- Start with Clean Hands and a Clean Face: Ensure your hands are clean and your face is free of makeup.

- Apply a Small Amount of Facial Oil or Moisturiser: You only need a very small amount as you still want to be able to 'grip' the skin. Don't have so much oil that your fingers just slide over the skin too easily

- Pinch the skin on the forehead working from end to end of the lines - almost like you're pinch the lines out.

- Stretch the Muscles: Place your fingertips at the center of your forehead and gently stretch the skin outwards in both directions at the same time.

- Use Upward Strokes: Using your fingertips, gently massage your forehead in upward strokes from your eyebrows to your hairline. Support the brows as you do this and gently stretch upwards.

- ZigZag Motions: Use small zigzag motions across your forehead with your index and middle fingers to boost circulation and promote relaxation

The best way to explain it I would say is that it's like trying to iron creases out of your t-shirt using just your fingers, wiggle, stretch and massage the lines to get them to soften.

Regular facial massage not only helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines but also boosts circulation, bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the skin.

Facial Taping

Facial taping is another method that's gaining popularity in the skincare world. This technique involves applying kinesiology tape to your forehead to smooth out wrinkles and retrain your facial muscles.

Benefits of Facial Taping:

- Smooths Expression Lines: By holding the skin taut, facial taping can help smooth out expression lines.

- Muscle Memory: Regular use can help retrain your facial muscles to move in a way that reduces wrinkle formation.

- Non-Invasive: It’s a non-invasive, cost-effective method to tackle forehead wrinkles.

You might think that this is an absolute ridiculous idea, I totally understand that, but for some it can really work. I was dubious at the start, but I've seen such impressive results with clients who do it regular I am completely convinced it can help. I like to do it in between my brows to prevent my 'elevens' from forming too.

How to Use Facial Taping:

1. Cleanse and Dry Your Face: Start with a clean, dry face.

2. Cut the Tape: Cut small squares of tape suitable for your forehead area. Around 1.5cm squares

3. Apply the Tape: VERY VERY LIGHTLY stretch your skin and apply the tape to the top of the forehead in a line going across. Make sure it's secure but not too tight.

4. Leave Overnight: For best results, leave the tape on overnight and remove it gently in the morning by rolling the tape from one side to the centre.
