      How often should you use Frownies®?

      Women repeatedly ask us "how often should you use Frownies Facial Patches?" Our answer always comes in the form of a question back to them. How deep are your wrinkles?

      Every person is different, so there is no definitive answer here. The best answer to how often to wear Frownies® is fully dependent on how quickly your unwanted wrinkles return. If the wrinkles appear back at the end of the day, wear the Frownies patches again that night until the muscle memory is released and the skin is smooth all day long. Our general rule is whenever you see unwanted lines returning, wear one of our facial patches that evening to bed or for at least three hours during the day.

      We have customers who use Frownies® every single night of the month. We also have customers who use our patches every other week or so. Fine lines can be addressed wearing Frownies Facial Patches for as little as 3 consecutive nights. The recommended frequency is entirely contingent upon the severity and return time of your wrinkles. Simply put, use Frownies® as frequently as you feel you need to. You know your body best!
      Be sure you know how to use Frownies Facial Patches correctly. Our patch must cover the entire muscle, not just the wrinkle line, but the muscle. The deeper the crease (wrinkle) the larger the patch needs to be. The Frownies Facial Patch needs to isolate the muscle. You cannot make the Frownies patch too large, but you can make it too small. Frownies Facial Patches can cause a crease in the muscle at the edge of the patch if the patch is too small. This is corrected by overlapping the patches to make a larger patch that is tailored to your facial muscles and size of your face. A further breakdown of how to use our facial patches can be found on our website as well as our YouTube channel.

      Many of our customers also use Frownies® patches along with Botox®. Contrary to popular belief, Frownies Facial Patches and Botox® work well together. Many Botox® users will apply Frownies® in between treatments in order to lift out the last little bit of depth in the muscle. Frownies® before and after shows you real life images sent to us from happy consumers. We proudly display all of our success stories on our Instagram and Facebook. Follow us on social media for testimonials, reward points, and early access to our monthly deals and bundles!

      Frownies® work as long as you keep using them. If you stop completely, your facial expression will cause the wrinkles to return. The sooner you start wearing Frownies Facial Patches the better your results. Don't wait until the lines are too deep. Prevention is always best!

      For the entire month of August, we are giving away a FREE face wash with the purchase of either a Crows Feet-Smile Lines or Forehead Deep Wrinkles bundle. We are also offering free shipping on all orders over $50!

      Summer Sun Care

      How should your protect your skin in the summer and why? Sunlight is hard to avoid during the summer. Sunlight contains solar radiation called ultraviolet light. UV light comes in three different forms, UVA, UVB, and UVC light. UVC light is the most dangerous for skin, but thankfully it’s deflected by the earth’s atmosphere. UVA is the most common form of ultraviolet light in sunlight, but it’s not nearly as harmful as UVB light.  When our skin is exposed to ultraviolet radiation, the DNA in skin is damaged and destroyed. Skin’s natural reaction to damage is to darken in color, as melanin is produced in higher concentrations. So a tan is evidence of  some sun overexposure but  sunburn is a sign of more severe damage.

      Avoid peak sunlight hours (usually around noon and onward for a few hours) and stay in the shade as much as you can. Wear clothes that cover as much of your skin as possible, given the heat. Many outdoor outfitting companies and athleisure brands offer clothing that has a UPF. UPF clothing is designed to prevent sunlight from reaching your skin while remaining light and thin for the summer weather. Seek shade whenever possible, and do not just lay and tan! 

      It’s always important to keep your body and skin hydrated -- it’s especially crucial if you’re out in the summer sun for a long time. The sun’s powerful rays can quickly dehydrate you, leaving your skin more susceptible to damage while leaving you physically fatigued. Keep drinking water and cool and hydrate your skin with aloe on a regular basis to stay alert and protect your skin. Then reapply you sunblock or protective clothing. 

      Using sunblock, watching your exposure time, keeping the skin cool with aloe not only for the burn but to condition the skin.  Apply aloe reapply sunblock. 

      Stay away from exfoliating with chemicals like AHA's during the summer when exposing the skin to the stronger UV rays these things may make the skin more sensitive to sun's rays.  You may burn quicker. 

      Dry brushing in the evening helps keep the circulation in the skin and skin healthy. If you were in the sun it is best to use the brush in the shower wet. During the winter months or if your not exposed you can keep your skin  in it's best shape dry brushing. 

      Toning creams like Frownies Cellulite Cream are great ways to keep the dimples and the wiggle toned and tightened. Using Frownies Cellulite at night before bed and under your yoga pants will make a world of difference. Cellulite /Cream ingredients are great for under arm's and even your neck. If you do use it and go out into the sun it is best to apply a sunblock over your toning cream,  like Frownies Body lotion with zinc oxide. 

      Both Frownies Cellulite and Body Creams are rich in natural Lipids that will help to protect the surface layer of the skin from drying out. Read about the great ingredients in these Frownies products here.

Consumers report wrinkles disappear with consistent use.

The second picture was me about 3 years ago and is edited. The third picture is me after about 3 months using frownies and is unedited. The forth was taken about 2 weeks ago after 6 months use, unedited. I just turned 51 May 3rd. I think you'll agree that Frownies really help! Thank you. You can use my pictures and/or comments as you like.

      Why Frownies Moisturizer is the best under your Facial Patches

      INGREDIENTS

      Aloe Vera contains over 75 different nutrients that help provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce skin inflammation and stimulate the growth of new cells. It allows the skin to heal quickly and naturally as it acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish skin's moisture.

      Propanediol is used in place of propylene glycol in other synthetic products. Made from corn sugars, it boosts the skin's hydration and improves the moisture barrier of the skin to slow water loss.

      Oat Oil contains ceramides acting identical to skin membrane to support the structure of the skin and improve skin appearance.

      Meadowfoam Seed Oil gives you a moisturizing and rejuvenating benefit, leaving a silky and smooth feel to the face.

      Daikon Radish Seed Oil (Non GMO) is high in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, phospholipids, and vitamin C. Used for skin healing properties.

      Rose Hip Seed Oil is high in Vitamins A (retinol), Vitamin E, omega-3 and omega-6. Rose Hip Seed Oil is acclaimed for its ability to regenerate skin cells, reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, and improve skin color and tone. 

      Aspen Bark Extract is a 100% natural preservative alternative. It's very high in natural salicylates, with the benefit of pore refinement and acne control.

      Millet Seed Extract promotes the production of elastic tissue, resulting in a more homogeneous skin appearance and a reduction of wrinkles and lines.

      Algae extract is formed from the four major seaweed classes: red algae, brown algae, blue-green algae, and green algae. Each class contains molecules that promote skin benefits such as: omega 3 fatty acids, amino acids, and vitamins A, B, C, and E.

      Glyceryl Stearate is derived from vegetable or soy oil and is also found naturally in the human body. It acts as a lubricant on the skin’s surface, which gives the skin a soft and smooth appearance. It easily penetrates the skin and slows the loss of water from the skin by forming a barrier on the skin’s surface. It has been shown to protect skin from free-radical damage as well.

      Why Frownies Rose Water is the best option for patch hydration

      Organic Rose Hydrosol is the quintessential skin care hydrosol. Rose Hydrosol is a great toner by itself and is used for all skin types. Especially suited for dry and/or mature skin types. Rose Hydrosol works at the deepest level and provides a very smooth feel on the surface. It is also fantastic for use as a body mist to calm and soothe the emotions.

      Organic Aloe Vera is known for rejuvenating skin. It achieves this in a few different ways:

      First: the polysaccharides act as moisturizers, hydrating the skin.

      Second: aloe vera is absorbed into the skin and stimulates the collagen and elastin fibers, so the skin becomes more elastic and less wrinkled.

      Third: it makes the surface of the skin smoother because of its cohesive effect on the superficial flaking epidermal cells, binding them.

      Hyaluronic Acid is a natural product of the bio-fermentation of Yeast with Glucose and Inorganic Salts. Recognized as the most effective moisturizer ever discovered for fine lines and dry skin.

      Vitamin E is a natural blend of d-alpha, d-gamma, d-delta and d-beta tocopherols.

      Organic Citrus Paradisi (Grapefruit) Peel Oil gives products a bright, uplifting, influence.

      Aspen Bark (Populus Tremuloides) is a natural preservative in certified organic cosmetics and has skin conditioning




      Understanding SPF

      Understanding SPF , sun protectionSummer’s almost here, so once again it’s time for you to reach for the sunscreen. For most of us, the default is to grab the bottle with the highest SPF. Bigger is better?  But what do those SPF numbers actually mean?

      SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and the number beside it indicates how well the sunscreen protects skin against sunburn. It is not an indicator of how long you can stay out in the sun, rather, it indicates how much longer it takes untanned skin to start to redden with sunscreen applied compared to how long it takes to start reddening without it.

      To work out the SPF of a sunscreen, laboratory tests are carried out on an untanned patch of skin (such as the buttocks) of human volunteers.

      Sunscreen is applied liberally to the skin,  then the skin is exposed to simulated sunlight via UV lamps.

      Measurements are taken of how long it takes the skin to get a minimal burn when covered with sunscreen, and how long it takes to get the same minimal redness without it.

      To get the SPF number, a simple formula is used. The number of seconds it takes a patch of skin to slightly redden when covered in sunscreen is divided by the number of seconds it takes to slightly redden when there is no sunscreen applied.

      If it took 400 seconds for skin to burn with sunscreen, and 10 seconds to burn without it. 400 is divided by 10, which is 40. The SPF is 40 .

      The testing is expensive for the small volume we make in each batch to bring you the freshest natural ingredients. Therefore Frownies is not calling our zinc products by an SPF number value. It is a mild sun block, use caution and reapply often just like any SPF product requires. 

      What is good to know when it comes to a sunscreen’s SPF. First  some UV radiation can always get through to the skin, no matter how high the SPF. No sunscreen can ever block sunburn and associated skin damage completely; sunscreen is only one part of effective sun protection, and not a front-line defence.

      Second, SPF is determined by tests in which a liberal amount of sunscreen is applied. That means that, to actually achieve the protection indicated on the label, you need to apply sunscreen thickly enough—and many people don’t. You also need to apply the sunscreen at least every two hours when in strong UV ray light, it can come off through sweat or by being rubbed off by clothing.

      Use caution in the sun this summer. Apply Aloe to your skin after sun and before. If you do get over exposed in addition to the aloe a good Skin Serum is helpful. 

      Be safe and enjoy your summer!
