A Brief Insight into the Factors that Cause Premature Forehead Wrinkles

Wrinkles are normal signs of aging. Wrinkles and fine lines appear because of several natural factors and a broad spectrum of lifestyle or environmental factors. Forehead wrinkles are visible facial lines that stretch from one end of your forehead to another. They are fine lines but can be prominent and often the first tell-tale signs of aging. However, forehead wrinkles or any other facial lines or wrinkles may develop prematurely because of many external factors. 

Years back, I came across an article on Forbes highlighting that the ‘American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’ believes smartphones are the chief culprits that can make you appear prematurely old. Creases and lines may appear when you devote too much time to checking your emails or texting on your smartphone. The consistent down gaze may lead to creases and lines on your neck. While there is no solid evidence for such external factors, a few lifestyle modifications can indeed help minimize wrinkles or prevent them from gradually getting worse.

What Are the Chief Causes of Forehead Wrinkles?  

Many factors are responsible for the appearance of forehead wrinkles. Let us explore some of them.


If you do not drink plenty of water and other fluids, your skin may lose its moisture. Dehydration leads to dry skin and boosts the chances of blemishes, fine lines, or wrinkles. Drink lots of water to maintain healthy and radiant skin. Your skin requires the perfect nourishment and needs to stay hydrated for a soft and supple feel. Remember that caffeinated beverages such as coffee and some frequently-used energy drinks are strong diuretics. They may cause dehydration. If you are a habitual coffee drinker, it is best to keep compensating by drinking a lot of water for keeping your skin healthy and hydrated. Additionally, you may use a good quality moisturizer for retaining optimum levels of moisture in your skin. You may visit a reliable forehead wrinkle website for more detailed information.

Excessive Sun Exposure

Excessive exposure to the harsh ultraviolet rays of the sun can lead to premature aging of your skin culminating in wrinkles and fine lines. Moreover, excessive sun exposure may cause pigmentation patches and increase the risk of getting skin cancer. You may be more careful while out in the sun. Be conscious about avoiding direct exposure to the sun. Wear a broad-brimmed hat and a pair of sunglasses for protection from the harsh UV rays of the sun. Sunbathing may lead to an attractive golden-brown tan. However, it may damage your skin beyond repair since you will notice early incidences of wrinkles and fine lines on your face. Remember to wear good sunscreen every time you step out in the sun. Consider avoiding long-term sun exposure. Develop a habit of using sunscreen daily because UV radiation has the capability of penetrating through the layer of clouds. 

Alcohol & Smoking

Alcohol abuse or drinking alcohol frequently way more than the recommended guidelines may cause dehydration. Alcohol is known to be a powerful diuretic, and it can cause tremendous fatigue and dehydration. Drinking alcohol frequently may boost cortisol levels in your body. Dehydration, in combination with high cortisol levels may adversely impact your skin’s capacity to repair and regenerate itself. Restrict your alcohol consumption to ‘government recommended limits’ to avoid premature wrinkles. You may develop premature wrinkles on your forehead or lip lines if you are a chain or heavy smoker. Smoking is instrumental in constricting your blood vessels. This leads to a restricted supply of vital nutrients and oxygen to your skin.


There are several other causes of premature wrinkles and facial lines. You need to identify those factors. Take proactive and corrective measures to prevent these lines from getting worse.
