As the owner and Founder of Advanced Dermatology Associates he has treated thousands of patients suffering form a wide variety of skin disorders. As people age, it’s only natural that they should develop more wrinkles and facial lines. Facial movement lines, often called laugh lines or worry lines, become more visible as you age. This is due to the loss of elasticity that occurs with age. Lawrence Jaeger notes that elderly people also find themselves developing age spots as they age. These are brown patches that appear on sun-exposed areas of the body. While aging spots and facial lines can’t be prevented, they can be aided by keeping skin moist and out of the sun. Using sun screen, wearing hats in the sun, using a moisturizer and avoiding tanning salons can all help you to preserve your skin. Doctor Lawrence Jaeger provides suggestions for keeping your skin looking its best. Exfoliation Dry skin is a breeding ground for wrinkles, due to the fact that when skin loses moisture it also loses elasticity. Exfoliation of the skin allows for dead skin cells to be removed and fresh, new cells to emerge. Additionally, the act of exfoliation promotes healthy circulation, in turn, promoting healthy collagen production. Exfoliating once a week with an all-natural scrub containing apricot seeds or pineapple enzyme will help to minimize forehead wrinkles and promote healthy, youthful skin. Moisturizing Moisture is the key to youthful skin, and as the skin ages, it loses hyaluronic acid and collagen, substances that are essential for lubricated joints and tissues. Your forehead is just as important as any other area on the face when it comes to hydration, and it often is ignored due to the fact that the hair often covers up this area. Applying a liberal amount of all-natural moisturizing cream each night to your forehead will allow for overnight rejuvenation, as the skin naturally replenishes itself during rest. It is important to use a cream that contains hyaluronic acid and collagen protein, as these ingredients will bind with the natural proteins of the skin and encourage additional collagen production, as well as Retinol, as this natural ingredient works well to gently exfoliate the skin, minimizing the appearance of worry lines. Vitamin E Oil Vitamin E is one of the most potent natural moisturizers available, and when it is in pure oil form, it deeply penetrates the skin and heals from the inside out. It naturally moisturizes the skin and encourages collagen production, allowing for long lasting results and optimal hydration and protection. Stop Worrying! While Doctor Lawrence Jaeger admits this is easier said than done, becoming aware of stress triggers in your life can help you put a stop to these triggers as well as learn how to handle stress in a calm and relaxed fashion. The forehead naturally rises during times of stress, and stays at rest during calm and relaxed times. By taking into account that your skin is aging due to stress, you can work to minimize the stress in your life, in turn, minimizing those frustrating worry lines. Wrinkles and fine lines are a completely natural aspect to aging and nothing to be ashamed of, however, in today’s world of health and beauty, many individuals are uncomfortable with deep worry lines and would prefer to have a smooth and youthful forehead. By taking a few simple steps that include weekly exfoliation, moisturizing with an all-natural cream that contains hyaluronic acid, collagen, and Retinol, and applying Vitamin E oil directly to those pesky worry lines, you can greatly minimize their appearance. It is important to be aware of your facial expressions as well, while certain expressions are automatic, worry lines are definitely contributed to worrying. Lawrence Jaeger advises that by minimizing your stress and becoming more aware of your reactions to stressful situations, you not only will have beautiful skin, you will also feel calm and relaxed on the inside.
