Wrinkles are the inevitable signs of aging we just can’t avoid. When skin ages it starts losing its collagen, skin’s main tightening protein responsible for creating a smooth surface. Collagen loss makes your skin wrinkled or creased. Various factors are responsible for causing wrinkles such as: ageing, smoking, free radicals, sun exposure, stress, genetics, dehydration, rapid weight loss, lack of proper skin care and bad nutrition and diet.
Wrinkles firstly appear on your hands, neck and face. There’s no way of stooping this natural aging process but there is a natural way to treat your wrinkles. Take a look at our natural, home, facial treatments for wrinkles…
Egg White Mask
Mix one egg white with a one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and half a tablespoon of honey. Egg white helps you tighten, tone, and shrink your pores by reducing excess sebum, the oil secretion from your pores. Egg whites are full of protein for tissue repair, potassium to preserve the moisture in skin cells. They’re also rich in fiboflavin which eliminates toxins and free radicals that cause wrinkles, and magnesium, which slows down the aging process.
The Aloe Vera plant is rich in malic acid that reduces wrinkles and improves the elasticity of your skin. Cut an Aloe Vera leaf from the plant and extract the gel. Apply the fresh gel onto your skin and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water.
Olive Oil Treatment
Olive oil is a good source of antioxidants, like vitamins A and E, which fight skin-damaging free radicals that cause wrinkles and is a great oil for massaging your skin. Massaging olive oil onto your skin will help to moisturize, repair and regenerate the skin cells. Olive oil provides long-lasting protection and keeps your skin moisturized.
