Those two or three little vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows may not look serious at first. Upon closer inspection in the mirror, you realize they are pretty deep and are making you look more like your mother than your younger sister. As beautiful as your mother is, you'd like to look your own age and not a day older. Soften deep lines between your eyebrows naturally, without the need for fillers or invasive procedures.

Lifestyle

Take care of yourself. It can really be that simple if you get serious about your potentially wrinkle-prone lifestyle. Deep lines between your eyebrows are wrinkles, and wrinkles form in skin that's dehydrated and sun damaged for starters. A nicotine habit doesn't help either, as smoking can cause your skin to look old before its time. Eat right -- lots of water and antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables might help you reverse the premature signs of aging that are plaguing your face, according to MayoClinic.com. Keep the lines from getting worse through protection. Be generous with the sunscreen when you go outside.

Exfoliation

Scrubbing away the deep lines through exfoliation sounds nice, but it's not quite that easy. But getting rid of the flaky skin can help soften the wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. The key is increasing your dermal volume in the problem areas, explains Neal Schultz, a New York-based dermatologist. Make you skin look plumper and less wrinkly. Exfoliate with a gentle cleanser and a loofah or facecloth, and moisturize afterwards. Moisturizing lotions and creams, especially those with peptides and other anti-aging goodness, help your skin stay supple and smooth and can even out deep fine lines and furrows.

Makeup Tricks

Use your flair for makeup to soften your forehead lines, or at least give that illusion. Become intimate with concealer, but not over-enthusiastic. Apply just a touch of concealer where the furrowing is worst and blend well. If you go overboard, you'll give the opposite effect because the liquid will sink into the wrinkles. Try a soy-based formula that plumps your skin as you work.

Exercises

Embrace the art of facial exercises as a natural remedy for eyebrow furrows. First of all, stop squinting and looking stern -- these facial expressions can contribute to wrinkles if you use them frequently. Close your eyes and relax your face. Raise your eyebrows as high as you can while keeping your eyes closed. Relax after holding the pose for three seconds; repeat the whole exercise 10 times. Over time, your skin will look firmer with fewer lines.
