What are frown lines?
Frown lines, also known as ‘eleven’ lines (or ‘glabellar lines’, as doctors call them) are those vertical creases that appear between your eyebrows. We make these creases when we knit our brows together while frowning and, as we age, our skin loses the ability to bounce back, and the lines set in, particularly if frowning has become such a habit that we hardly know we’re doing it. If you want to soften these lines, there’s a lot that can be done—both with skincare and with tweakments. You might be thinking that, when you frown, horizontal lines appear on your forehead, too; but when we talk about ‘frown lines’ we’re generally just referring to the elevens—after all, ‘forehead lines’ can also appear when you’re surprised, smiling, sceptical, etc.
