          What Causes Forehead lines?

          Age isn't the only cause of lines on your forehead, or for that matter, wrinkles of any kind. There are many other reasons as well. Take a look at a few.

          1. Excessive Use of Facial Muscles

          Facial expressions are the way of life. If you express too much, meaning you frown too much or smile too much, it can cause forehead lines.

          2. Sun Exposure

          There's a reason why sunscreens are important. Ultraviolet rays do more than dry and darken the skin. It also breaks down collagen and affects skin elasticity. It leads to wrinkles.

          3. Smoking 

          Smoking also affects collagen secretion and elastin fibers. It leads to forehead lines and other signs of premature aging.

          4. Sleeping the Incorrect Way

          Do you sleep on your stomach, with your face directly on the pillow? Change it immediately and sleep on your back in bed. It reduces the chances of getting wrinkles.

          5. Inherent Problems

          Wrinkles and other signs of premature aging can also result from genetics. If you have a family history of developing wrinkles early on, you've had them too.

          6. Too Much Makeup

          Makeup is a way to enhance beauty and self-confidence. However, too much chemical-infused makeup can cause forehead lines. Try to keep makeup light and organic and limit usage.
