Frownies Facial Patches

Anti-aging with Frownies Facial Patches
Sometimes the greatest products are the simplest ones; for instance, on the surface, paper strips with a tacky surface don't seem like much of anything, but when applied in the context of wrinkle treatment and prevention, they suddenly become a genius innovation. Enter Frownies, my latest weapon in the fight against aging. My girl Lyndsey told me about them a few months ago, but I only remembered them halfway through December, and after a particularly frown-heavy session in front of the computer, I decided to bite the bullet and place an order. It's not that they were expensive or anything (they cost less than $20 a box), but I just wasn't sure how effective they would be... turns out, quite a bit. 

How do they work, you ask? Let me tell you. The patches are applied to the forehead and/or between the eyes and left overnight (also during particularly stressful workdays, if you're anything like me), forming a splint that holds your skin in place and helps relax the underlying muscles. Skin cells evidently reposition themselves in the process, and ultimately, a more youthful-looking complexion is created. Naturally I was skeptical at first, but after seeing how relaxed my skin looked between my eyes after the first night of wearing them (I usually have a slight furrow when I wake up in the morning), I was hooked... and so is Mr. AiF, as it turns out. Hey, the couple that Frownies together, stays together.

To use, complete your usual skincare routine then remove your desired number of Frownie strips (there are several configurations you can use — see here). Use water or a facial spray to moisten the tacky side of the strip to activate the vegetable-based adhesive and apply to the skin, holding in place until the strip adheres. In the morning, simply wet the strip again to remove and enjoy your more relaxed-looking forehead... no Botox required.
