I hope this is the right forum.

I'm fifteen and I have forehead lines already...
There are two, but they aren't that noticeable unless you look really hard. They're not like those super skin folds that require botox or anything, but they're definetly lines and they annoy me to no end and I can kinda feel them when I rub my forehead. I guess I raise my eyebrows too much? What can I do?

I'm not sad or anything, I just noticed them one day and now whenever I look in a mirror...

Have other people noticed it too, told you anything about it or are you the only one noticing those forehead lines ?

It doesn't sound to me like there's a particular problem here, this sounds normal to be from what you described (although I can't take a look at them from over the net), especially since you said you have to ''look really hard'' to see them. That does sound like within normal to me.

Unless it's causing you problems in your life, I wouldn't worry about it. No human being is perfect, we all have our little imperfections and the best thing to do about them is to simply try to accept them as they are.

Just FYI? Nothing "requires" Botox or other cosmetic procedures. [Smile] People have had wrinkles for all of human history and let them be, even appreciated them. In fact, I think the faces of the oldest people are the coolest to look at, myself.

Wrinkles and expression lines are a normal part of life as we become and remain adults. You can start using a moisturizer if you're not already, but for the most part, these kinds of changes are things we all live with (and at 38, I know this, too) and which only are an issue if we make them one.

im 15 as well, and i have a whole buncha wrinkles in my face [Razz]
but really, i think you're just being paranoid. we all, from 2-100 have smile lines, nothing wrong with it at all. but if it reaaallly bothers you, you can try some lotion, moisturizing it might give your skin a bit more lacticity, seeming as you, and i, are so young, it might just be dry skin.
