Best Anti-Wrinkle Creams for Smoothing Forehead Lines

Learn from our Lancôme experts how to find our best anti-wrinkle cream and tackle those pesky forehead wrinkles.


The first signs of aging may be hard to pinpoint. Perhaps your complexion is appearing more on the rough side, your pores are becoming visible or you have developed tiny lines around your eyes. Before you know it, those forehead wrinkles that once disappeared with your changing facial expressions are sticking around—and it looks like they’re there for good. However, we have good news, it’s never too late to fight those signs of aging. By familiarising yourself with the most common causes of forehead lines, as well as the best anti-wrinkle cream for your skin, you can begin tackling those forehead creases.


What causes forehead wrinkles?

Firstly, aging can be broken into two main categories: Intrinsic (natural) aging, which is simply the passing of time, and Extrinsic (environmental) aging, which is essentially your lifestyle. Intrinsic might include smile lines or eyebrow creases, whereas extrinsic is affected by how much sun or pollution you’re exposed to, or whether you smoke or drink. Environmental factors can speed up the natural aging process—in fact, it’s proven that your lifestyle can age you faster than genetics.


How can you prevent or minimise wrinkles?

If you’re looking to prevent the premature onset of wrinkles, we recommend using a good anti-wrinkle moisturiser that keeps your skin hydrated day and night — like a day cream or night cream. In addition to applying a moisturising product, make sure to use daily SPF protection and practise safe sun habits, such as seeking shade whenever possible, avoiding the sun during its peak hours of 10am-2pm and wearing a hat and sunnies. Stay hydrated and try to maintain.

If you already have visible signs of forehead wrinkles, we recommend a few different solutions. Our Rénergie anti-wrinkle cream range remains Lancôme’s secret weapon against sagging skin, offering unique technology to reduce wrinkles and lift, firm and define facial contours. Rénergie is best suited for those who have wrinkles combined with a loss of firmness, as it has two actions. Our Absolue anti-aging skincare line attenuates signs of aging with advanced technologies and luxurious textures.


How do day creams and night creams differ?

There are several reasons why moisturising creams are labelled for morning or night time use. This is due to the factors of active ingredients, SPF and viscosity within the formula itself.

Day creams are typically formulated with SPF, adding the benefit of daily sun protection into your everyday beauty regimen. Day creams are also developed to pair well with makeup products, as the texture provides a hydrated, smooth canvas that’s primed and ready for foundation, concealer or a product of your choice.

Night creams tend to have a thicker more nourishing formula and are formulated without SPF. They’re designed to moisturise, rejuvenate and smooth the skin overnight, typically including anti-ageing ingredients like Retinol and Glycolic Acid. These ingredients can make your skin sensitive to light, so they’re best utilised in products designed for the evening.

ABSOLUE SOFT CREAM
Absolue Soft Cream

The Absolue Soft Cream has a special transforming texture that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles, whilst revitalising skin with firmness, radiance and 24-hour hydration. Made with an exclusive blend of Grand Rose Extracts, this indulgent cream creates a sensorial journey as it transforms from a thick hydrating cream, to a thin serum-like lotion, and into a thicker layer once absorbed, to create a plumped appearance. From this application, skin surface cell renewal is improved and the skin’s moisture barrier is protected..

How To Apply: Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin. Upon application, the cream has a thick texture and feels creamy, rich and nourishing. As the cream is blended, its texture transforms into a thin, serum-like lotion that feels fresh and nourishing as it easily absorbs into the skin. As the cream is absorbed, the texture thickens and skin feels even, plumped with moisture, with a silky, radiant finish. A dewy, nurtured look is revealed without leaving skin oily, greasy, shiny or without pilling.



Rénergie Crème Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Cream

If you’re looking for an anti-wrinkle and firming treatment that caters to all skin types, then reach for the Rénergie Crème Anti-Wrinkle Treatment Cream. This day cream contains a protein-based active ingredient (Corn Extract), which acts within the epidermis on intracellular fibres (Actin, Keratin, Tubulin) to help strengthen them. This fosters better cellular cohesion and tissue density to decrease the appearance of wrinkles and plump, lift and firm the skin.

How To Apply: Apply this day cream to clean skin every morning. Work the product into the skin using upward sweeping motions for optimal absorption. Use tiny pinches to stimulate circulation.

Absolue Nuit Premium ßx Night Cream
Absolue Nuit Premium ßx Night Cream

Inspired by 20 years of research on skin stem cells, Lancôme has created the Absolue Nuit Premium ßx Night Cream for the face, neck and décolleté. It helps restore moisture deep in the skin’s surface, plumping it to regain youthful substance, firmness and clarity. This skincare is enriched with green-tech molecules, such as Pro-Xylane, and precious oils to help reveal a more youthful appearance. From the first morning, skin looks smoother, more comfortable and appears more even. .

How To Apply: Smooth the cream onto your face, starting with your forehead wrinkles. Use your hands to massage upward from your cheeks to temples, and from your chin to your ears. Take a little more cream and apply it along your chin and down your neck to your collarbone. Do the same sweeping motion along your collarbone and décolleté with the night cream, starting from the middle and moving out under your arms. Continue those long sweeping motions on your face—first outlining your face from the bottom to the top, and then along your jaw. Sweep along your chin, cheekbones and eyes, alternating hands. Finally, use your fingers to make vertical lines with the cream along your forehead, moving from the outside in, then from the middle of your forehead to your inner brows.
