Whether you have decided to grow old gracefully or want to try all the remedies under the sun, wrinkles are an inevitable sign of aging, and one which can be slowed down by taking good care of your skin. The earlier you start, ultimately, the better.
Whilst it is, of course, important to keep your skin clean, over-washing can actually strip your skin of its natural oils and moisture which help to protect against wrinkles. You should try to wash your face with soft water (if you live in an area with hard water, boiling it can help) or a mild lotion which can be made from products such as cucumber. Rub the lotion gently into your face and then rinse away with lukewarm water and dab your face dry with a soft towel.
You can apply home made treatments to your face using things such as carrot or tomato juice. Carrots contain a high content of vitamins A and B as well as a number of beneficial minerals. It can be a great natural cleanser for your face as can a freshly squeezed tomato juice. Leave either juice on your face for around 20 minutes before washing off with lukewarm water.
Other products found within your home can also be used to make a mask, such as yolk, almond oil, milk and lemon juice. Mixing all these ingredients together can create a mask which is ideal for skin with larger pores. Again, leave the mask for 20 minutes then rinse off with tepid water.
Honey is also an ideal ingredient to include in a face mask. Honey is suitable for all skin types and will increase softness and flexibility of the skin which can assist in reducing fine lines. You could try mixing a little bit of lemon juice in with your honey mask for increased effectiveness.
Eating a balanced diet can also assist with the reduction of wrinkles. Think of it as a whole body approach, the healthier your body, the healthier your skin will be. Fruit and vegetables are naturally great as their antioxidant compounds help to keep skin looking radiant and younger. Soy is also thought to help the skin heal any damage which has been caused from ultra-violet rays, in other words, the sun. Fish is also a good food to include in your diet due to the level of protein and the omega 3 it contains. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid which can help keep your skin looking younger.
If you find that you have tried the natural approach and it isn’t getting the results you want, why not consider a professional approach? Whilst this may bring to mind face lifts and chemical peels there are actually a fair few treatments which are non-invasive such as the green peel. A green peel is a herbal treatment which only contains pure natural plant ingredients. It increases blood circulation and enhances the regeneration of new skin cells and collagen fibre which can assist with the reduction of imperfections on the skin such as wrinkles.
