How To Get Rid Of Frown Lines Naturally

Eyebrow muscle tension can result from several situations:

  • extreme anger
  • extreme fear
  • extreme depression
  • extreme headaches
  • extreme concentration
  • extreme squinting

In general, eyebrow muscles are used to express displeasure, worry, anger, discontent, discomfort and other negative emotions. If the “extremeness”or negative emotions last for a long time, that can cause lines between the eyebrows. These lines are called “frown lines” or ” number 11 lines” and many people want to get rid of these, but not many know what these lines do to your mental health.

Several experiments have been done to find out what happens when people are forced to furrow their eyebrows and the results are very interesting. People with furrowed brows generate more negative emotion!  In short, if you have frown lines, your brain is telling you that you are not happy!

Shortest Cut To Mental and Physical Happiness

One of the reasons I believe in smiling is smiling makes you “happy” even when you are not!  Your brain notices you when you are smiling. Your eyebrows are relaxed and your brain “thinks” you are happy.

Let your eye brow muscles relax by contracting/resisting and exercising your eye brow muscles. By doing this you can improve your blood circulation in the eye brows so that not only can you prevent, decrease and diminish lines but you will look happier and younger! Your face is the first thing that people notice when they meet you. 

When you are stressed and unhappy, it shows on your face.  When you are happy and content, it shows on your face.

In this video you will use your fingers and contract/resist and exercise the eye brow muscles.

To get rid of your frown lines naturally, you can combine the last week’s exercise with this for the best results.

    1. Hi Fumiko,

      Can I just ask when you pull the skin away are you not causing it to stretch ? Is that not bad for the skin? I am currently trying to improve my no. 11 lines and like this exercise but worried that will do more harm than good.

      Many thanks in advance !


      1. I think you should be fine just pressing into the muscle without pulling skin. This will relax the muscle and remind you what it feels like when they aren;t tense.
        I work alot with my hands and have been a squinter my whole life. I don`t need glasses though, I just do it while concentrating…Anywho, I find that when I can`t touch my face because I have stuff on my hands I just put a light smile on. This instantly relaxes my whole face. You don`t have to smile so much that people think you`re cray cray, just a small calm smile.

        1. Good to hear from someone who is not extreme anger, extremely depressed, etc. Concentrating, and light-sensitivity is what causes my frown lines, and they are temporary. Now, the frown lines I have just now, are due to irritation that a ’14 year old’ is shown – “frown lines?” although, certainly, more pleasant to see the youthful glow, and the preponderance of negative causes. Thank you.

  1. I haven’t seen any videos for the actual frown lines. All frown line video references are leading to the forehead area. Where are the videos for the actual frown lines?
