Glabellar lines, “elevens”, or as they are commonly referred to, frown lines, can be a major reason to feel bummed out! But fear not, for we have science on our side now and some amazing breakthroughs have been made (hurrah!). It’s so nice having other options than the cold creams we grew up with. So if you’re experiencing “elevens” and you wanna do something about it, keep reading for the best products for frown lines.
These wrinkles and fine lines are really caused by a tricky concoction of gravity, age, and our skin just not being able to hold onto moisture as well or produce collagen. Sometimes even the way that we sleep can attribute to the problem. Here are five of the top products on the market for reducing those pesky frown lines. So let’s set those dials back on our time machines and get ready…
This award-winning serum ticks all the boxes and gets the job done. It contains hyaluronic acid to keep your moisture in and plump the skin while also having retinol, which acts as a chemical exfoliant and helps slough off dead skin. It really helps you rid yourself of annoying wrinkles while brightening your overall skin tone as well. Just remember, if using a product with retinol be sure to use your sunscreen during the day as your skin will be more prone to sunburns.
This serum has one of my favorite beauty ingredients in it: cone snail venom! I know this sounds super strange. But if you’re knowledgable about K Beauty, you’ll know that stuff is pretty much liquid gold for the face. It has ridiculous amounts of peptides to stimulate natural collagen production while also relaxing your face muscles. Many women have turned to snail venom as a substitute for Botox so say bye-bye to those “elevens”!
I just love the sound of an overnight mask! This is the best time to give your skin what it needs without having to wear makeup, an actual “mask”, or any other products. So it can soak up what it needs while getting its beauty rest as well. This is another workhorse on the list. It has Retinol and hyaluronic acid to maintain moisture and help regenerate new skin cells while also containing vitamin C, which can help brighten skin and boost its elasticity. Check, check, and check!
This is the top tier of skincare and has been referred to as “the Illuminati” of skin creams! They have some very original (and secretive) methods for creating their products and are used by celebrities everywhere. So of course I wanted to know what all the hubbub was about. They have something in their serum called “Miracle Broth” and it contains a fermented mixture of sea kelp, vitamins & minerals, citrus oils, eucalyptus, sunflower, wheat germ, and alfalfa which “revs up renewal”. It is also made without Parabens, sulfates, or phthalates which is quite refreshing!
This patch is 100% medical grade and it smooths while you sleep. No creams or serums needed here! This reusable patch locks all of your moisture in while flattening out your skin at the same time. With this combo working together, kiss those furrows goodbye while seeing plumper skin. They also have all different shapes for your neck and chest!
