As you get into your later years, wrinkles appear. In the past, wrinkles were a sign of aging, but today they are also signs of pollution, stress, smoking, and chemicals in the food we eat. Battling all these together can drill a hole in your pocket!
You can go the usual route and buy facial skincare products. If you choose a top of the line brand, it will cost you, no question here. The problem though is that many of these products contain chemicals and unnatural ingredients. Checking the label carefully can lead you to unpleasant discoveries.
A recent growing trend in skincare is DIY – homemade recipes for skincare made of all natural ingredients. We turned to Premier Dead Sea, a cosmetics company specializing in skincare products based on minerals found in the Dead Sea (they even have their own private Dead Sea beach) to share their expertise and provide a few recipes for homemade skincare to battle wrinkles.
You can jump right in to the recipes, or if you wish, you can check reviews of Premier Dead Sea here.
Here they are – cost-effective, homemade treatments to battle wrinkles:
Egg White & Honey Mask
Mix white of one egg, 1 teaspoon of honey and few drops of any essential oil you like and apply this in upward motions to your face starting from your chin moving upwards to the forehead. This is an excellent moisturizer for your skin and helps reduce acne while visibly reducing fine lines and wrinkles with 2 or 3 applications. Use this at least twice per week for optimum results!
Banana & Yoghurt Mask
Banana is one of the most beneficial fruits for skin treatment. It boosts collagen capacity of the skin. Mash one ripe medium sized banana with honey and 5 tablespoons of yoghurt. Warm this mash till it feels comfortable to the touch and apply to your face. Leave on for approximately 20 minutes and wash off with warm water, removing the mask in gentle circular motions. Lactic acid present in yoghurt helps dissolve dead skin and in tightening the pores.
Fenugreek leaves are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. These are easily absorbed into the skin when applied as a paste. Fenugreek leaves, oil, and seeds also work fabulously to reduce wrinkles on facial skin.
Grind a cup of fenugreek leaves to a thick paste-like consistency. Apply this paste directly onto clean, makeup free face and leave overnight. Next morning, wash off with regular tap water. Use this paste minimum once a week to see visibly reduced wrinkles and signs of aging.
Cucumber & Lemon Face Pack
Cucumber has high water content to hydrate the skin while lemon contains Vitamin C that has strong antioxidant properties. This face pack also helps in lightning tanned skin and works miracles on freckles and age spots. Peel and grate half a cucumber and mix it with 1 tablespoon lemon juice and a little yoghurt. Apply this onto your facial skin and leave for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water to get hydrated rejuvenated skin within minutes. Use this remedy every alternate day for optimum results!
Turmeric & Yoghurt Mask
Mix half cup of yoghurt with 2 teaspoons of turmeric powder to a thick paste. Apply this paste on clean and dry face. Let the paste dry completely. Once dry, wash off with cold water in gentle circular motions. Yoghurt tightens skin to battle saggy skin, while turmeric has excellent antiseptic and de-tanning properties that reduce lines and wrinkles to get healthier, younger looking skin.
Apple & Honey Mask
This mask can be applied to the whole face or only to affected areas on your facial skin. Apple contains vitamins A, C, and E that promote younger looking skin. Boil an apple in water.
