Before it happened, people warned me, but I didn’t believe them. And then it happened. I turned 30 and things started to get weird. My hangovers entered a new phase of intolerable, my once super thick eyebrows thinned a bit, my skin lost some of its luster, my eyesight got worse and my period even changed a little. None of this was overnight, but there was a definite shift.
One of the other noticeable changes was I actually started seeing wrinkles. Nothing drastic, but lines on my face showing that I had in fact entered my fourth decade of life. You can see laugh lines around my mouth and around my eyes and that I probably sleep more on the right side of my face. And so far, I’m 100% ok with it, except for one area. My frown line in between my eyebrows. I’m a serial scowler – in the sun, when I’m mad, confused, focused and sometimes even when I sleep! I worry I’ll start to look perpetually angry, which is not a flattering look.
Recently someone recommended a bizarre trick and it weirdly makes a difference! Putting a piece of masking tape between my brows when I sleep. Not sure I’ll keep it up and it’s definitely not sexy, but it helps while I try to figure out how to mellow out more before bed so I don’t spend 6 hours a night frowning!
How do you guys feel about wrinkles and do you have non-invasive methods of keeping them at bay?!?
