What guidance do you give on skincare?
Well, where to start. Since it’s the foundation of our products, we focus a lot on how to moisturize with hemp. Hemp is safe for all skin types and helps with concerns like dry skin, acne, and fine lines. It’s the ultimate clean ingredient to add to facial oils, moisturizers, and soap.
We also write about powerful active ingredients like vitamin c and glycolic acid. For those that are interested in knowing whether you can use salicylic acid with niacinamide then read more here. And we can’t talk about active ingredients without discussing what is hyaluronic acid - it’s a must-have!
And given the confusion between cannabis, hemp, and marijuana these days, we provide education about the plant, and whether you can use hemp skincare products and not get arrested. We’ve written about this in our article where is CBD/hemp legal in the world.
How to fight against frown lines
The frown line owes its name to the angry expression that we have on our faces at times. However, the causes of frown lines often lie elsewhere. In a few minutes, you will learn how frown lines develop and how you can alleviate the signs of frown lines and wrinkles with hemp skincare products.
What can be done about these pesky frown lines
There are several ways to reduce the signs of frown lines. For example, frown lines can be injected with Botox or hyaluronic acid (which we don't recommend).
Botox partially paralyzes facial muscles, thus smoothing expression lines.
Hyaluronic acid can plump up frown lines from the inside, making them less visible.
However, neither type of treatment has a long-term effect and must be repeated at regular intervals of a few months.
But you can also reduce wrinkles with a combination of a healthy lifestyle and skincare with suitable anti-aging ingredients. A balanced diet, sufficient water intake, plenty of sleep, and little stress have a positive effect on the skin.
Our hemp facial serum provides your skin with daily moisture and active ingredients that preserve its youthful radiance.
Anti-aging ingredients against wrinkles
We introduce you to some of the most popular anti-aging ingredients commonly found in skincare products. In the right dosage and application, they are particularly suitable for reducing signs of skin aging, such as wrinkles.
This is a sugar molecule found in various parts of the body. However, the largest amount is actually found in the skin. Hyaluronic acid has the ability to store many times its weight in water. Thus, it plumps up the skin from the inside and gives it a plumper appearance. You can buy hyaluronic acid pills but we would recommend that you buy our hemp facial moisturzing cream instead.
As the most important protein in the human body, collagen plays a significant role in the elasticity and resilience of the skin. Often, anti-wrinkle products do not contain collagen, but other ingredients (amino acids) that are part of the collagen molecule and promote collagen synthesis. Collagen-stimulating serums or firming creams soften signs of wrinkles and counteract the formation of new ones.
Retinol is a popular active ingredient in anti-aging skincare. The vitamin A derivative has an antioxidant effect, promotes a more even complexion, and refines pores. Retinol also promotes cell renewal and collagen production in the skin. We actually wrote a detailed blog article on the best lotion for crepey skin on arms and legs that contains retinol.
Vitamin C has a positive effect on the skin. And no it does not suck all the moisture from your skin. It protects the skin from the effects of free radicals (which we briefly discussed here) and thus acts effectively against wrinkles and co. We have a great combo product here that contains vitamin C.
Our recommended anti-aging skincare routine for frown lines
For best results, incorporate anti-aging ingredients and select anti-wrinkle products into your daily skincare routine.
Cleansing: Start your skincare routine with a thorough facial cleansing. Use a facial cleanser that also moisturizes your skin.
Serum: Now apply an anti-aging serum to cleansed skin. A serum with vitamin C and hyaluronic acid intensely moisturizes the skin and contributes to a more even complexion. Check our article on what serums do for more information on this topic.
Cream: Apply an anti-aging day cream as the last step in your skincare routine to protect the skin from harmful environmental influences and at the same time soften the signs of frown lines. It's important that you choose the right face cream for your skin type.
Home remedies for frown lines
In addition to your skincare routine, you can use homemade face masks once or twice a week.
A mask made of yogurt and honey directly provides several anti-aging benefits: The bacterial cultures found in yogurt can improve skin elasticity and soften signs of fine lines and wrinkles.
Honey has a skin-soothing effect and can delay the appearance of wrinkles. An avocado mask is also very good as an anti-aging remedy for frown lines:
The oil of the exotic fruit has antioxidant properties and improves the collagen content in the skin.
Also, try coconut oil as an alternative to hemp
Does the sun contribute toward frown lines
Of course. When ultraviolet (UV) rays are exposed to your skin for long periods of time, your skin is damaged and this adds to frown lines. You can read more about that here.
