Frown lines are vertical lines or wrinkles that appear between the eyebrows.
Frown lines often appear shaped like the number '11' furrowed between your eyebrows. They are usually two prominent wrinkles stemming from the brow up into the forehead surrounded by some smaller wrinkles.
Also commonly referred to as 'worry lines,' the leading cause of frown lines is ageing. As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and doesn't easily bounce back to its original shape. Coupling this with repeated facial expressions that contract the muscles between the eyebrows and cause the skin to gather increases the likelihood of getting frown lines.
But they can also develop in younger adults who have had to deal with too much stress, which causes a lot of facial tension. Other factors that can make you more susceptible to frown lines include excessive sun exposure, smoking and genetics.
It’s also worth noting our technology usage has increased leading us to concentrate more on digital devices. This action often leads us to frowning without even realising.
