Growing old is part of life, but who says you have to look your age. Besides the anti-aging creams available in cosmetic stores, there are products in your home you can incorporate into your beauty routine to keep those wrinkles at bay. Here is a list of some.
Olive oil is packed with vitamins A, D, K, and E, with E being the most beneficial for the skin. Since it is an antioxidant, it slows down the aging process. Oxidants (reactive oxygen species) in high concentrations harm the cells, causing aging and sometimes even cancer.
You can apply a couple of drops on your face, but since your skin could be sensitive, use the oil occasionally at first to test your skin’s reaction. If you are prone to acne, too much olive oil can clog pores triggering the skin condition. Also, ensure that you use extra virgin oil because low quality could damage your skin.
Dry skin, while it does not cause wrinkles, causes them to be more exaggerated. Honey is a great moisturizer that helps rebuild moisture level, thereby enhancing your skin’s elasticity and suppleness. Since it is mild, you do not have to worry about your skin getting irritated by this natural product.
For the anti-aging skincare routine, use a honey face-mask once a week. Start by dampening your face with a clean cloth and warm water. Apply a teaspoon of honey to your face in a circular motion using the fingertips. Leave it to rest for 20 minutes, then rinse and dab dry before proceeding with your normal skincare regimen.
Besides spicing up your food, turmeric could help to fend off wrinkles. It has antimicrobial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. While consuming it in your food or as a drink will also work, applying it on your face has much faster results.
When made into a paste using tomato juice and rice powder, you can apply it and leave it for 30 minutes. This mask helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. You can also mix it with gram flour and water then apply it as an exfoliating agent to decrease visible signs of aging.
Pomegranate Seed Oil
Some products are great at reversing the natural processes; You can use Low-Level Light Therapy to help restore your hair with products like iRestore. It reverses hair loss, and while you are restoring your hair you can use pomegranate seed oil to soothe the scalp and reverse the visible aging signs. The pomegranate seeds produce oil that has been used for medicinal and cosmetic purposes. It protects the skin and improves skin elasticity thanks to its anti-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory properties.
It prevents aging by promoting dermal cell regeneration and collagen synthesis. Since it is best used as a carrier oil, you can combine it with your essential oils, keeping the concentration at 3-10%. For best results, you should apply a few drops of the serum at night and let it sit overnight.
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away; well then, a tomato a day keeps the wrinkles away. One study revealed that eating tomato-based foods protects the skin against the harmful effects of the sun. Tomatoes have also been shown to improve general skin health.
Tomatoes contain antioxidants, and you do not have to eat them to benefit from this property. Applying tomato juice on your face every day and letting it sit for 15 minutes reduces your wrinkles, blackheads, and pimples. It can also help to lighten the skin.
You do not need a Botox appointment when bananas are readily available. Bananas are listed among the best anti-aging fruits because they hydrate cells, making them firm, and preventing wrinkle development. They are loaded with vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that promotes collagen production.
You can notice the wonderful effects of the bananas through a DIY face mask. Mix a ripe banana with honey, apply the mixture on the face, leave it to dry, and wash it off with warm water. Within a month, you will notice the difference in how tight your skin is.
The great thing about natural products is they rarely irritate your skin. Try these products and watch your wrinkles disappear.
