We’ve all heard phrases like ‘turn that frown upside down’, and with good reason – frowning is a bad habit! Not only does a thunder-face impact mood, but it also has significant standing on your physical appearance. Namely, years of frowning are guaranteed to age your skin.
Like smiling, frowning uses many muscles. If you spend a great deal of your day with a downturned brow, then it shouldn’t come as any surprise when you start to see the effects. Serial frowners may even begin to spot signs of sagging and wrinkle development as early as 30.
The good news is that it’s never too late to turn that frown upside down. You may find that merely lifting your expression helps to hide damage and prevent further problems. If that doesn’t cut it, you may also want to think about the following techniques for undoing your frown and the damage it’s done.
#1 – Address wrinkles
You first need to address the wrinkles (and sagging) that are already showing from your frowny demeanour. Anti-wrinkle products are, of course, a must-have here. Even making an effort to moisturize your forehead can make a difference. If these small efforts don’t help, you want to consider either a surgical or nonsurgical procedure that helps address this issue at its root.

Pair any of these solutions with a lighter expression moving forward, and you might find that your skin stays fresh after all.
#2 – Think about your hair
We all know that hair has a massive impact on overall appearance, and this is certainly the case where frowning is concerned. By considering a haircut that can mainly cover existing damage, you can focus on making sure that things don’t get worse. Obviously, bangs are a real go-to option for achieving this goal. A straight fringe can cover frown lines in their entirety, while even a sweeping side fringe should go a long way towards hiding minimal damage, just as long as you stop progression in its tracks!
#3 – Lighten your brows
Heavy brows are all the rage, and there’s no denying that they look great. Sadly, they can also highlight frown lines. As such, your last step for turning that frown damage upside down should be to lighten your brows. By this, we don’t mean you need to pluck them into oblivion like a 00’s chick. Instead, you might want to think about using lighter colors and thinning things a little. You can still get that thick-brow look this way, but it won’t appear as heavy on your face. It also won’t draw attention to the frown lines you’re currently working so hard to disguise.
It isn’t easy to change expression, but these are only temporary fixes. They’ll buy you time, but they won’t save your forehead in the long-run. Only turning your frown upside down will do that!
