Products or home remedies to reduce appearance of forehead wrinkles as a teenager.

Hi, I've been struggling with ageing skin for a year now and the wrinkles on my forehead seem to be becoming more and more prominent which is freaking me out a bit. It doesn't help that I've started getting more textured skin in that area.

I never had any issues with skin before this apart from eczema, nor acne so I don't really know what products would help reduce their appearance and keep my skin glowy. I've tried searching for products or remedies but there's so much information out there and I really don't know what to believe.

If anyone has or is going through the same thing, please could you help me out and recommend some skin care. And if you have any natural remedies (kind of ayurveda style) then that's even better. Thank you!

Hi,
I would just say that you should maintain a gentle skincare routine, use sensitive skin products to wash and moisturise your face, (moisturising is super important); ‘simple’ is a good brand and is available in almost every shop.

Make sure you put suncream (SPF 50) (Nivea is always a reasonable brand) on your face and neck EVERY SINGLE DAY, the sun can be super damaging to the skin.
Using some sun protection on your face can help retain the natural glow and can reduce the look of aging.

Stay hydrated (this should also help hydrate and moisturise your skin properly), avoid foods that you may be allergic or have an intolerance to, and make sure that you don’t stress yourself out since that can make your skin look and feel stressed and appear more aged.

If you are still worried, then I would suggest seeing your GP or a dermatologist to see if they can recommend or prescribe anything.

Hopefully this helps!!

Thank you! I used to use simple face wash but I switched to a nivea one last year and my skin problems started from there so I might start introducing that back into my routine

Using retinoids can reduce the appearance of wrinkles or signs of aging. You can get some retinols from the store but stronger ones from a dermatologist. Hydrating you're skin can also reduce some appearances as it can plump the skin like hyaluronic acid - you can buy these from a regular drugstore or online. Don't smoke or drink excessively. Using a spf can also prevent wrinkles as it acts as a layer of protection but its important to use a good amount and reapply.
I'm gonna assume that you have a skincare routine, also make sure that the routine is gentle on you're skin, not stripping the skin.

I've tried a retinol before and it really irritated my skin and changed it's texture to rough and dull over a month of use every other night. My skin is rather sensitive so that may have been why but I have not tried hyaluronic acid so I'll give that a go thanks.
