Forehead Lines show that you are adventurous and love the outdoors. You’re inclined to seek out activities with an adrenaline rush. They are caused by sun exposure and reinforced by eyebrow-raising facial expressions. Tips to help forehead lines include upping the antioxidant intake, and consuming an ample amount of water.

Crow’s Feet show that you are a hard-working individual that is fueled by curiosity. You pay attention to detail and tend to be a perfectionist. They are caused by squinting.

Tips to help Crow’s Feet include sleeping on your back to alleviate skin pulling around the eyes and wearing sunglasses and eyeglasses (if needed) to minimize squinting.

Nasolabial Folds (or Laugh Lines) show that you are very optimistic and look at the positive side of things. People enjoy being around you.

They are caused by Ptosis: (falling) of cheek fat and repetitive smiling/laughing reinforces the visibility of the lines. A tip for reducing nasolabial folds is to apply lemon juice to the lines. The acidity tightens the skin.

Glabellar Lines (or Frown Lines) show that you are stubborn and have a hard time letting things go. Stress often gets the best of you.

They are caused by sun exposure and reinforced by negative or stressful facial expressions. A tip to reduce glabellar lines is to reduce caffeine intake. Caffeine can act as a diuretic that contributes to dehydration.

Lip Lines show that you are a hopeless romantic. You love being around people and enjoy listening to music. They are caused by sun exposure and reinforced by drinking through straws, whistling, and kissing!

A tip to help alleviate lip lines is to apply a topical vitamin C. This will stimulate collagen production and protect against UVA and UVB rays.

Sun, aging, and facial expressions play the largest factors in your wrinkle fate. While you can’t stop aging, you can certainly use a high SPF sunscreen, limit sun exposure, and eliminate those negative facial expressions. –

Though we are prone to resenting our wrinkles, these signs of experience are good because they are recording our chronological passages of life.

They are visual proof that we have been feeling the emotions of our experiences, struggling through our difficult times, and learning the lessons of life.

We can celebrate them as marks of wisdom that come with age. Most markings appear on an area of the face that represents the age that the emotional experience first occurred.
