The forehead is equipped with multiple muscles that participate in facial expression, and therefore the skin on the forehead is more mobile and is able to stretch up and contract inward. Overtime the collagen and elastin fibres responsible for skins firmness and flexibility break, and slowdown in production. Sun exposure is the single biggest cause of damage to the skins collagen and elastin, and gravity makes these structural concerns with the skin very obvious. The combination of these factors result in a heavy brow or a sagging or drooping forehead.
