Wrinkles? - February 27th 2017, 03:28 AM

I first noticed wrinkles on my forehead forming at age 16 ish. Now, by wrinkles I mean light, hardly visible -- unless you're specifically looking for them -- creases on my forehead. This is due to the fact that I make very exaggerated facial expressions all the time and one of the most common is raising my eyebrows so that my forehead creases. Obviously not on purpose, but yeah.

So I guess they're not "official wrinkles" yet, as they're super light and I'm probably the only one noticing them. I asked my mom about it, who has quite a few wrinkles, especially on the forehead, resembling mine, just deeper. But she just laughed and told me I don't have wrinkles.
Even though mine aren't bad yet, it's still obvious that in the future they're going to the be there, right on my forehead, where the entire world can see.

I usually sneak a little dab from my mom's anti-wrinkle cream every so often but it's really not that effective.
Are there any natural remedies or anything I can make at home that could work for getting rid of these "wrinkles" and getting smoother skin?
I know I can just Google it, which I am doing as well so don't worry, but I figured it might save time if someone on here has personally tried or heard of a method that has worked for them or someone else.

Also, I know looks aren't everything so this really shouldn't be the most of my worries, and it's not. However, I'm at a point in my life where I'm focusing on every single flaw in myself and it would be great if I could at least improve the ones that I have control over.
Thanks

Hey!
I know this doesnt sound much of a help but hydrocloric acid would work. Its a substance fetuses are in and thats why they never scar, fun fact. But i think coconut oil is supposed to help, makes the skin look better and is more likely to rid the baby-wrinkles. Probably using things that rejuvenate the skin and make it look healthier should work, fatty things like avocado, coconut, brazil nuts, even butter would likely work. I doubt this was much help, but i hope the internet helped too

Do you by any chance mean hyaluronic acid?

I'm not sure what you can do about wrinkles other than general skin care such as moisturising, and overall eating healthily and keeping hydrated. There's no harm in using anti-wrinkle cream but since you are young and the wrinkles aren't very defined, you may not see an improvement. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry too much, if they aren't noticeable

Hey, Jess!

It can be concerning when we notice things like this, but chances are others likely won't notice unless they look real close and know what they are looking for. Regardless, wrinkles or no wrinkles - you're awesomely you! And as people say: having a few unnoticeable wrinkles just means you must have a lot of wisdom.

Taking care of your skin will ensure you have healthy skin and may help reduce future wrinkles when you are older. Perhaps you could try moisturizing facial washes, drink lots of water and maintain a healthy diet and get a proper amount of sleep. Not only will it help your skin but help your mind and body at the same time. Aside from that, make sure you protect your skin from harm. For example, sitting in the sun for a long period of time can damage/dry out your skin leading to wrinkles in the future on top of damaging your skin and causing other issues. Smoking also causes wrinkles, but it can cause issues a lot worse than wrinkles it's best to refrain for health reasons; less wrinkles are just a bonus.

You mentioned using your mom's anti-wrinkle cream. If you continue using hers or begin using one of your own, I encourage you to talk to a dermatologist about any anti-wrinkle creams you use. I've heard that some have toxins in it, and sometimes your skin is healthier when you're not using the creams. So it may be best to stick to creams with more natural ingredients or creams under the guidance of a professional to ensure it will really help your skin. One of the best things you can do is moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! A well as getting plenty of sleep, and taking care of your body and your skin. Some even say the vitamins in fruits and vegetables help your skin and reduce wrinkles a bit.

Ultimately, your overall health and happiness is important and is what matters. Remember that it is okay if you have a few wrinkles. If you have to look really hard to notice them, and other people don't notice them, they aren't bad wrinkles at all. Even as you grow older and you notice wrinkles later on, I hope you know it doesn't make you less beautiful inside and out as that beauty is within too.
