Genetics, the aging process, collagen loss, environmental factors and repeated facial expressions contribute to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead. Simple, natural remedies such as exercise, taking antioxidants and staying hydrated can slow and reduce the formation of forehead wrinkles.

Exercise both improves blood circulation and relieves muscle tension, which improves the overall look and vitality of your face. Without proper blood circulation, your face -- along with the rest of your body -- doesn't receive the maximum amount of oxygen and nutrients from your diet. Constant tension in facial muscles can physically squeeze skin, leaving indents as you age. Facial exercises present a twofold solution to achieving a supple, youthful-looking face. To work the muscles in your forehead, close your eyes and pull down on your lids while lifting your eyebrows. Lift and lower your eyebrows to stretch and flex the muscles of your forehead.
Drink Plenty of Water
By keeping yourself well hydrated, you can maintain and increase skin elasticity, the skin's ability to bounce back and stay firm after it's squeezed together by muscle contractions. After the skin on your forehead loses elasticity, it becomes susceptible to wrinkling every time you make a facial expression. Drink eight glasses of water daily to stay adequately hydrated. Avoid drinks containing caffeine or alcohol that dehydrate your skin.
Reservatrol is a naturally occurring antioxidant found in red wine that can combat environmental damage to your skin. The cells of your skin, along with cells throughout your body, can be damaged by free radicals, which are absorbed by your body from a number of sources. Smoke, pollution and radiation are environmental hazards to the skin on your face. Antioxidants such as reservatrol can reduce the detrimental effects of free radicals and maintain the health of skin cells on your forehead. Reservatrol is available in supplement form.
