Anyone got any recommendations for either a good cream or primer that helps with forehead lines.I use rose hip oil each evening and the rest of my face is fine but have bad lines from raising my eyebrows at people too much!confused

L'Oreal and Clarins both have primers in small jars that have a pollyfilla effect on lines

I like Nip+Fab Frown Fix, although is temporary. Sort of plumps out the lines. I use it on crows feet too.

You asked about creams. Well, I'm not sure there is a good one. There are some topical things that will have a modest effect on fine lines. Some may very faintly plump the skin. As far as I know, the only topical thing that actually reduces wrinkles is Retin A. (Retinol is related to it and is available in drugstore products and could have some modest effects but the actual Retin A needs a doctor's prescription.)

Barring Retin A, your best bet is.... Botox. I can see you wincing from here but the truth is that Botox is marvellous for forehead lines. If you have deep Gordon Ramsey lines then you may need to do it for a year or two for them to be gone completely but there will be immediate improvement with the first use. (Well, not quite immediately. It takes a week or two to kick in.) If the lines are not of Gordon Ramsey calibre, then you could have pretty much a smooth forehead on the first use.

Only botox works for this

After 20 years and thousands of pounds trying to solve this problem I know that nothing but Botox works. Wish I'd tried it sooner.Find a reputable injector with a light touch.It's amazing

Botox terrifies me! Although if I get any further down the Gordon Ramsey sliding scale I might have to consider it!confused
