It has been talked of down the ages, how furrow lines or wrinkles on the forehead has been considered as a clear sign of ageing. And in most cultures, wrinkling of the forehead has been equated with experience and worldly wisdom. In other words, it can be said with absolute certainty that wrinkling is quite normal, but what causes forehead wrinkles and are they natural in their occurrence is something that people have been asking for quite some time now. So, let us take a moment to discuss wrinkles on forehead and whether it is a sign of premature ageing/ageing.
Forehead wrinkles, or what is also called fine lines, even furrow lines, has been something that concerns a whole lot of people. Fine lines has been associated with increasing age and thus, in quite a few of the world’s cultures and of course in India, some wear their fine lines with pride, accepting them as badges of honor in respect of their age and experience, although women find lines on their forehead and face disturbing. Besides, more often than not, wrinkles are indicative of some sort of skin damage, and that is something to be worried about if it is a skin condition at all. But today we have taken a different and unique stance. We shall train our attention to answering the question of whether or not the formation of wrinkles on our forehead is normal. As the wise men used to say, there’s no point in running after the cure if there is no disease. So, let us first start with attempting to delineate exactly what are wrinkles and how are they formed.
How are Fine Lines on the Forehead Formed?
Our skin has proteins called collagen and elastin which gives skin its suppleness, tightness, and firmness, and everything is okay when we are young, but as we get older, our skin starts to lose collagen and elastin as the production of these protein decreases and as we result, the skin starts to sag, developing fine lines and wrinkles. Consequently, shriveling up of our skin’s finer blood vessels causes wrinkling. And the older one gets, the more prone he/she is to develop wrinkles. Other than ageing, other factors responsible for wrinkles are direct and prolonged exposure to sunlight, repetitive creasing facial movements, use of low-quality skincare and makeup products, and the damaging effect of free radicals in the body and skin. There are many categories of wrinkles such as atropic crinkles and rhytids, permanent elastic creases, gravitational folds, dynamic expression lines.
Is it normal to have Wrinkles on the Forehead?
And now that we have done our diligent duty by trying to understand what wrinkles are in the first place, let us now move on to the more pertinent question, which is; whether it is normal to have wrinkles on one’s forehead.
The answer to this question is a simple “yes!” It is quite normal to have wrinkles on the forehead because in most cases, around 99% of the time, it is the consequence of daily stress and ageing. Aging is something that is most natural to all living creatures including human beings and as such all that follows in consequence are natural results by their very nature of origin. Cases of premature ageing are a bother no doubt and there are plenty of both cosmetic and natural cures for that too, which we have discussed at length before. However the formation of fine lines with ageing is as natural a consequence as ever, and it is inane to lose sleep and hair over something that is inevitable, and if handled properly, can be presented in a rather elegant way.
