5 Best Ways to Eliminate Wrinkles from Your Face Naturally

Wrinkles are a bane of the natural aging process. They are thin creases or lines that form in the skin, primarily on the face and neck. Wrinkles result from a gradual decrease in the skin’s collagen levels as you age, which causes it to lose its elasticity. Wrinkles may also form prematurely, as a result of poor diet, stress and sudden loss of weight. You can use natural remedies to prevent and get rid of wrinkles.

Milk and Honey Cleanser

Milk and honey is an age-old, anti-wrinkle cleanser that dates back to the ancient pharaohs. Modern science now supports the efficacy of this remedy: milk is rich in lactic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid that deep cleanses the pores, sloughs off debris from the skin and stimulates the secretion of collagen. Honey is rich in humectant compounds, which promote the absorption and retention of moisture into the skin. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and increases its elasticity. Combine one tablespoon of honey with half a tablespoon of organic raw certified whole milk. Massage this into your skin and leave it on for ten minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.

lemon scrub

Lemon Juice and Sugar Exfoliator

Lemon juice is rich in citric acid, a naturally-occurring, organic acid with strong exfoliating properties that help to get rid of wrinkles. Exfoliating your skin sloughs off dead cells from the outer layer of the skin, revealing soft, supple skin underneath. It is also rich in vitamin C, which is essential in the production of collagen. Sugar contains glycolic acid, which is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that helps to repair skin damage and to remove dead skin cells. Stir one teaspoon of sugar into two tablespoons of lemon juice, mixing thoroughly. Gently massage the solution into your skin using your fingertips, taking care to avoid your eye area. After ten minutes, rinse it off with cool water.

egg mask

Egg White Mask

Egg whites are a temporary but popular remedy for getting rid of wrinkles naturally. It has astringent properties that temporarily tightens pores and firms the skin, helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. To use this remedy, separate the egg whites from two organic eggs and whip them until peaks form. Apply this to the face, leaving it on for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with cool water.

lemon balm mask

Lemon Balm Rinse

Lemon balm is a natural astringent that helps to keep your skin taut and firm. Make a lemon balm rinse by steeping a handful of lemon balm in two cups of boiling water. Let it cool and then use it as a facial rinse each morning.

supplements

Take Your Vitamins

Vitamins are a simple but effective natural anti-wrinkle remedy that not only helps to get rid of wrinkles but also promotes healthy, younger-looking skin tone. B-complex vitamins, in particular, have potent antioxidant properties and can be obtained from dietary sources such as organic meat, eggs, and whole wheat. Vitamins A, C, and E are also natural anti-oxidants for the skin, and they can be obtained from green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit.
