Glabellar lines: what they are, why they appear, and how to combat them

As the years go by, your skin loses elasticity and firmness. This occurs due to the skin’s aging process, a physiological phenomenon. Because of this, you may notice the appearance of wrinkles, signs of aging, and fine lines. These include glabellar lines, which are lines that form on the forehead. But how can we combat them or minimize their appearance?
Let's take a look together.

o Why do wrinkles occur?

As time passes, the appearance of the skin also changes and the first wrinkles appear. This is because the skin produces less and less collagen and elastin and loses elasticity, causing wrinkles and signs of aging to form. In addition to the passing of time, there are also other factors that can accelerate the skin’s aging process and, therefore, the formation of wrinkles, such as:

  • Smoking
  • Stress
  • Excessive exposure to sunlight, especially if you do not use a high sunscreen.

▪ What are glabellar lines?

Glabellar lines are among the most common expression lines and are formed in the forehead area. They have a distinctive vertical shape, just above the nose, in the area between the eyebrows. They are also called "frown lines" because they give the face a sullen and worried look.

o How to minimize the appearance of wrinkles

The appearance of wrinkles is inevitable, but there are some ways in which you can minimize the signs of aging. The watchword is definitely hydration. Hydrated skin will retain more of its firmness, resulting in more elasticity and becoming less prone to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. You should therefore always use a moisturizer in your skincare routine.

It’s also essential to use a serum: this is an indispensable product that nourishes your skin. Among the most popular anti-aging ingredients within serums is retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A.

You must also always protect your skin from the sun's rays: UV rays are responsible for photoaging, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and signs of aging.
Therefore, sunscreen should be applied every morning.

o Which products to use for glabellar lines

To minimize the appearance of wrinkles and signs of aging, you need to include a few steps in your daily skincare routine. One example is serum: Biotherm has developed Blue Retinol Night Serum which, thanks to the combination of Pure Retinol and Life Plankton, helps the skin renew itself completely. With regular use, the serum makes the skin more even and radiant, acting directly on the signs of aging to minimize their appearance. It’s a night serum, to be applied initially only twice a week, then gradually increasing the frequency to every other night.

Another product from Biotherm is Life Plankton Elixir, an essential product to promote cell renewal and soothe the skin. Its formulation is ideal for all skin types and can be used several times a day as the first step in any daily skincare routine. Thanks to the high concentration of our Life Plankton™ ingredient and the addition of hyaluronic acid and vitamin C, the serum plumps the skin and improves its glow. In just eight days*, the skin is already visibly improved and, day after day, wrinkles, fine lines and dull complexion become less and less noticeable. The skin looks younger and more radiant with this serum.

Another area of the face that is very prone to wrinkles and fine lines is the eye area. For this Biotherm recommends Blue Therapy Eye cream. The eye zone is the most attention-winning part of the face for age perception and requires specific anti-aging skincare. Blue Therapy Eye Cream, infused with Laminaria Ochroleuca and Life Plankton™, targets dark circles and lack of firmness, going beyond the classic crows’ feet wrinkles and under-eye bags. This firming eye cream reveals the appearance of a younger, luminous look.
