Wrinkles on your forehead can be caused by:
- Skin damage due to aging. When elastin and collagen in the skin break down because of aging, wrinkles happen.
- Skin damage due to exposure to harmful UV rays of the sun.
- Cigarette smoking.

How to Get Rid of Wrinkles on Forehead
Now that we have the causes out of the way, let’s move on to the part you’re waiting for: how to get rid of wrinkles on your forehead.
These tips are focused on what you can do from the outside. There are definitely lots of things you can do to reduce wrinkles from the inside out too, for example with nutrition, exercise, and other healthy habits.
There are many options available, depending on how far you want to go and how much you are willing to spend.
1. Botox treatment. A botox injections for wrinkles temporarily paralyzes the muscles and smoothes wrinkles. The treatment lasts for about 4 months and can cost from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars. It has some potential side effects and risks that you definitely should look up. Botox is a toxic substance and if it spreads beyond the site it is injected it can have serious adverse reactions.
2. Cosmetic surgery. A forehead lift or brow lift will raise the brows back to their natural position. It also lifts the eyelids and results in a younger appearance. It may be an effective option if you have deep wrinkles, but the procedure can be expensive and well, it doesn’t always look natural. With all surgery comes some risks, and even the effects of surgery don’t last forever.
3. Facial peel. You can also get rid of wrinkles on the forehead with a facial peel. Peels remove the outer skin and expose new, fresh skin underneath. In addition to reducing wrinkles, facial peels also lighten dark spots on the skin. A facial peel is not expensive and you can have the treatment two or three times a year. The effectiveness varies depending on how deep your wrinkles are, and many facial peels contain harsh chemicals. Make sure you use a natural one.
4. Home remedies. Home remedies to treat wrinkles smooth and moisturize the skin. You can use a variety of natural treatments including olive oil, egg white, castor oil, aloe vera, lemon juice and papaya pulp. Lots of natural ingredients found in your kitchen are healthy for the skin and help reduce the signs of aging.
5. Anti-wrinkle cream. The best wrinkle creams stimulate the growth of new skin cells, which helps smooth out wrinkles. Look for wrinkle creams that contain natural ingredients such as functional keratin, natural vitamin E, coenzyme Q10, and grapeseed oil. There are lots of collagen creams on the market today, but are they really effective? Well, I haven’t tried them, but it is said that collagen molecules are too large to get absorbed by the skin, so the creams have little or no effect.
There are hundreds of anti-aging and anti-wrinkle creams available but you have to find one that works best for you. I personally have been using Xtend-Life’s skin care line for over a year.
In my experience natural remedies and creams are the best option. Use them regularly and they’re effective, safe, and have no nasty side effects. Sure, you won’t see results over night. Instead your skin becomes gradually healthier and healthier, and soon smoother and younger-looking too.
