Wrinkles are charming because they simply pass the test of time. But do they get too deep or do you often hear that you look angry? Then there is a greater chance that your frown wrinkles will irritate you. A deeper frown wrinkle can develop, especially in summer. How this comes? And how do you fix it? You can read that below.

The sun is one of the biggest reasons frown lines appear. Exposure of the skin to UV radiation accelerates the breakdown of collagen and elastin. In addition, the bright sunlight does not help either, because what do you do when you look into the sun? That's right… frown.

These tips help against a frown wrinkle


Know when you frown! When you start paying attention to your frowning behavior, you do it more often than you think. While driving, sitting outside on the patio, when you can't see something well or while trying to focus. Become aware of all these frowning moments and try to reduce your frowning behavior. You feel it when you frown so try to consciously relax during those moments. Tighten and relax… then you will feel the difference and you will know when to pay attention to this.


Sunglasses are no superfluous luxury, they are your lifesaver at the first rays of the sun! Without sunglasses, almost everyone squeezes their eyes together – and with it the part between the eyebrows. That's how that frown wrinkle comes naturally! Invest in beautiful and above all functional sunglasses to enjoy the sun in a relaxed manner.

Drink enough water

Initially, water is not the panacea for smooth and tight skin. There are too few studies to prove this. What we do know is that people who drink too little become dehydrated and as a result the skin loses its elasticity. In short, drinking water is good for the body and has many benefits. It has a positive effect on the intestinal system and digestion. So try to drink at least 1.5 liters per day.

A treatment at the cosmetic doctor

Beauty comes from within, but you can also give nature a helping hand. Frown lines develop on their own but never go away on their own. As you get older and the elasticity of the skin decreases, the frown wrinkle will deepen. A treatment with Botox is then the solution. During this treatment, a small amount of botox is injected into the muscle of the frown. The Botox ensures that the muscle relaxes and therefore it is no longer possible to frown. Already after two weeks you notice that the muscle of the frown is and remains relaxed. This result remains visible for three to five months, after which the Botox is completely broken down by the body. As a result, the frown wrinkle reappears and the natural aging of the skin continues as before.
