We often call those small lines that appear around the mouth and eyes "smile lines," but if you have expression lines, they probably make you feel much more like frowning than smiling. The development of signs of aging is a natural process caused by the reduction of collagen in the skin that gradually occurs as we age. Environmental free radicals and UV damage can hasten the process, making those lines appear much earlier in life. Frownies is an anti-aging skin care product developed to address the underlying structural cause of aging to target those unwanted lines and promote healthier skin at any age.
Frownies began in 1889 when a woman named Margaret Kroesen created a special patch to help correct her daughter's facial wrinkles. Kroesen's daughter was a concert pianist and was concerned that premature aging could jeopardize her career. At the time, Kroesen called her invention "Wrinkle Eradicators" and found that the patches did make a visible improvement in the appearance of her daughter's skin. After the death of her husband, she began to market her invention, and it soon became a beauty secret of Hollywood's elite.
The patch created by Kroesen that is still marketed today under the Frownies name functions like a splint for the skin. When a Frownies patch is applied to an area marked by a fine line, the patch holds the skin flat while allowing the muscle beneath to relax. Gradually, the muscle tissue becomes more even, decreasing the depth of lines and making them less apparent. In clinical studies, Frownies have been shown to visibly improve the appearance of the skin with just one, 3-hour application and to lead to dramatic changes in the texture of the skin with 3 weeks of continuous use.
Today, Frownies is led by Kroesen's great-granddaughter, Kathy Wright, a naturopath who has devoted her life to studying the health of the skin and the role that nutrition has on the appearance of the complexion. Under Wright's direction, Frownies has evolved to include a variety of anti-aging solutions for the face. In addition to the patches once called "Wrinkle Eradicators," the Frownies collection contains topical solutions that address additional causes of aging beyond the underlying muscular causes of lines. Antioxidant-rich formulas are available to reduce the amount of oxidative damage caused by free radicals, and moisturizing formulas are included in the range to help keep the skin supple and pliable to decrease the likelihood of wrinkling.
If expression lines are giving you a reason to frown, the Frownies collection can help you deal with all of the underlying causes of aging to promote a healthier complexion. Many of the products in the collection are geared toward the needs of specific areas of the face, such as the eye area, mouth area and forehead.
