Ayurveda uses plant products and essential oils to create formulations with potent anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties. These super ingredients contain natural antioxidants, which protect the skin against free radicals. You see, the main reason for skin ageing—especially on the forehead—is oxidation damage. But natural ingredients with antioxidant properties like amla, neem, gotu kola, rose, manjishtha, ashvagandha, turmeric, ginger, and cloves can help.
However, forehead wrinkles and fine lines are no longer restricted to the phenomenon of ageing. Your sleeping position can also be to blame for the early development of forehead wrinkles. If you tend to lie on your stomach with your face pressed into your pillow, then you’ll be more at risk of developing wrinkles on your forehead.
Stress, depression, anxiety, dehydration, hormonal changes, photo-damage related to excessive exposure to UV radiation from the sun, poor diet, and extreme change in weather can be some of the possible reasons behind wrinkles on the forehead.

Take 1 teaspoon of multani mitti in a cup. Mash half a banana into it, add a few drops of honey, and a little milk to make a paste. Apply on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cool water
Take a healthy diet that is rich in vitamin C and avoid foods that are rich in fat and carbohydrates—both of which increase the risk of wrinkles. Drink at least eight 8 glasses of water every day. Being hydrated goes a long way to help wrinkles.
Massage your face daily with a concoction of 1 tablespoon almond oil, a quarter teaspoon castor oil, a few drops of wheat germ oil, and a few drops of frankincense. Give yourself a warm compress to help the skin absorb these oils better. Wash off after an hour.
Exfoliate your skin twice a week. Exfoliation is an extremely important step in your skincare routine. It will help to get rid of dead skin cells. So, choose a mild scrub to exfoliate your skin regularly.
