All of the skin on your face spends time moving and when you’re young, your skin is full of naturally produced collagen, so that movement doesn’t have much of an effect. However, as you get older and your skin loses the ability to produce collagen, the movement of the face has more of a profound and lasting effect. One of those effects is frown lines, which are usually found above the nose and between the eyes, on the lower part of your forehead.
Many people resort to having Botox or fillers injected into this area to restrict movement and fill the creases so that they appear reduced. If you have frown lines but don’t want to resort to such invasive cosmetic procedures, there are things that you can do which don’t involve having injections in your face. Here at Pure Beauty, we stock several products which work wonders on frown lines, so we thought we would curate a list for you, so that you can start to tackle your frown lines without any sort of surgical intervention.
Night creams are a great way to tackle frown lines as they are usually richer in their formulation and therefore better able to tackle deeper lines. This night cream from Elemis is a powerful blend of gardenia stem cells and other naturally derived ingredients which not only tackle frown lines but also deal with sagging jowls, cheeks and chin. It provides a powerful lifting and plumping effect which contours the face and visibly improves the skin without the use of parabens, SLS or mineral oils.
This intensive mask from Decleor melts into a fine oil as you massage into the skin, allowing the active ingredients to be efficiently absorbed. It contains wild pansy extract, which encourages your skin’s own natural hyaluronic acid production, plumping the skin and smoothing out wrinkles. It can be used once or twice a week on a cleansed face and works in just 10 minutes, leaving the skin looking more supple and radiant.
This highly scientific formula from Elemis has biomimetic properties, which means that it mimics the natural processes of the skin. It drenches the skin with moisture, which plumps the skin overnight and seals in hydration so that you wake up in the morning with softer, smoother skin with fewer wrinkles. It helps to balance the skin’s barrier function and works with the natural temperature of your body to help your skin go into repair and recovery mode.
This cream from Decleor has been designed to not only help to refine wrinkles and contour the face, but it also helps to give the skin a fresh and luminous glow. It contains magnolia essential oils and peony extract as well as ginger and invigorates the skin and the mind. It can be applied in the morning and evening and will tackle frown lines like a pro.

It contains rich antioxidants which drastically improve the skin’s elasticity and actually goes deep enough to increase cell renewal within the lower layers of the epidermis.
