Get rid of the ‘11’s: Five ways to deal with forehead lines

Get rid of the ‘11’s: Five ways to deal with forehead lines

Do you notice the ‘11’s on your forehead that refuses to budge only to give you more worry lines? These static fine lines differ from what dermatologists call ‘dynamic wrinkles’ that occur only when you are making a facial expression.

As our bodies age, it is not uncommon to notice fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, as the skin loses some of its elasticity with age as collagen production slows down. Frowning a lot that overuses frontalis muscles, UV exposure, overexposure to screens, genetic factors, stress, and a questionable lifestyle can just add to the list of reasons that lead to the appearance of fine lines.

With its initial onset or even as a preventive measure, most dermatologists recommend a skincare routine focused on anti-aging. Here are a few things that derms suggest we do, to prevent and minimize their appearance.

The lighter appearance of fine lines can be dealt with, with some skincare and discipline including saving the skin from exposure to direct sunlight; having a diet rich in antioxidants and omega 3 fatty acids, using skincare products that come with peptides, antioxidants, and amino acids.

Shankara’s range of anti-aging products including the Anti-aging Serum, Fine Line face oil and moisturizer, and Daily Repair Serum are made using a blend of natural herbs mentioned in the timeless Ayurvedic texts, antioxidants, and actives making them powerful anti-aging agents that hydrate, moisturize, nourish and replenish the lost collagen and elastin in the skin to keep your skin looking young, spotless and glowing.

1. Look for Vitamin C in your products

You do need face oils rich in sources of vitamin C to protect your skin from signs of premature aging or reduce damages from oxidative stress, hyperpigmentation, and the proliferation of free radicals.

The Shankara Fine Line Face Oil, for example, is a 100% pure unique oil blend. This face oil goes deep into the skin to calm, protect, and rejuvenate while maintaining balance in the T-Zone area for skin that looks healthy and radiant. Made using over a dozen exotic herbs and actives like blue chamomile, sea buckthorn berry, calendula, vitamin C ester, Vitamin E, oils of grapeseed, aloe vera, jasmine, ylang-ylang, among others, the face oil is extremely cooling and slightly sebum balancing; restores and maintains skins natural balance and is non-comedogenic.

2. Save your skin from the sun

A good dermatologist will tell you, the years to be adventurous with your skin while outdoors is behind you once you hit 30. Wear sunscreens when you step out because tans will not only take longer to correct but may also leave behind pigmentation and blotches. Make sure you are also using an antioxidant-rich serum along with sunscreens to replenish a lot of nutrients and important minerals that your skin needs to be healthy and vibrant.

Shankara’s Anti-age serum is a 100% active serum that combines the goodness of as many as a dozen and rarer herbal ingredients and natural actives including Gotu kola, sandalwood, mandarin, Echinacea Purpurea, ashwagandha, neem, gooseberries, sodium hyaluronate and chamae rose to deeply moisturize and rejuvenate your skin making it visibly brighter and healthier. Brahmi, a key ingredient in the serum, is rich in antioxidants and enhances rejuvenation and oxygenation. Chamae Rose is energizing, rejuvenating, and supports natural skin renewal. Liposome ATP extract is derived from milk protein and is able to energize and hydrate the skin while supporting healthy aging.

3. Use products with hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid can hold water several times its own weight in water, which makes sure it is a highly effective hydrating ingredient. It is also in demand for the gift of reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, one of the polysaccharides that help the skin lock in moisture. It is HA that gives our skin the right texture and is responsible for the skin’s hydrated glow. But as we age, that is step into our 30s, the secretion of hyaluronic acid reduces. It is then that we need to take extra care of our skin’s moisturizing needs as it can quickly dry up without enough hyaluronic acid being produced. So our skin may need supplementation to avoid the two ubiquitous skin problems- frequent drying and premature aging. Shankara’s Anti-Age Serum uses HA in the form of sodium hyaluronate, one of the safest and most effective molecular combinations that use HA.

4. You need peptides

While essential oils are of great value for a bright, healthy younger-looking skin, amino acids, as building blocks of peptides and proteins are a skin essential for their ability to reproduce their own antioxidants; to regrow cells, to stimulate collagen production, to carry moisture throughout the skin, and hydrate. Some amino acids occur naturally in the skin but given our exposure to pollutants, environmental triggers like stress, a diet lacking in the right nutrition, and a lifestyle that is misaligned, there has been a need to replenish the amino acids in our skin.

Amino acids are needed to reinforce the body’s immunity, hydration and reduce premature aging of the skin, and so you can find key amino acids like Glycine, Alanine, Proline, Serine and Threonine in our Calming Body Wash, reduce fine lines and wrinkles; repair skin damage; protect the skin from external agents. Amino acids work even better when combined with NMFs or natural moisturizing factors like glycerides and Polysaccharide-Peptide composite, found in Shankara’s signature line of body washes.

5. Managing the stress levels are important

Our mind and skin share a connection that we have rarely paid attention to, an evolving science called psychodermatology. Emotional worries, trauma, and stress in the mind do eventually show up on your skin in various forms of skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, acne, hair loss, premature aging among others. So, when the question is chronic stress, an important answer to your skin problems should be managing your stress levels, and there’s little more powerful than breath and meditation!

Of course, a full-body deep tissue abhyanga massage with Shankara’s Calming Body Oil should help abundantly too in relieving the stiff muscles, improving the blood circulation, and nourishing the skin cells while taking the goodness of herbs like vetiver, dashmoola, borage, sesame oil, macadamia nut oil, oils of almonds, avocado, evening primrose, ginger essential oil, bala extract, rose and jasmine extract, deeper into the tissues!
