The following homemade recipes will help you to get rid of wrinkles:
1: Lemon and honey mask
Extract juice from a medium lemon and add two teaspoonfuls of honey to make a nice blend. To make it richer and more effective, you may add a few drops of olive oil and blend well. Apply, leave for about 10 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C, one of the vitamins that help with the renewal of cells. Lemons also help conceal anti aging spots and also rejuvenate your skin. It is an excellent ingredient for toning the neck area especially if it has sun burns and an uneven complexion due to harsh weather. When used in your night mask, you will always wake up with a tighter and youthful skin the following morning. Lemon also clears pimples and aging lines thus making your skin tender and soft naturally.
Honey is a natural moisturizer whose golden colour leaves your skin glowing with beauty. It is best used on dry skin because of its ability to regenerate new cells. When used in the morning, it helps protect your skin from bad weather, especially against excessive dryness. During summer, honey protects your skin against harmful radiations that are linked to a wide range of skin disorders including skin cancer. Honey is sticky and this pulls your skin pores together thus making them smaller. This in turn helps give you a tighter and more attractive skin that is as smooth as that of a new born.
Olive oil curbs the drying effect of lemon juice thus helping retain and balance your natural skin moisture.
2: Honey and aloe vera mask
Mix two teaspoonfuls of honey with two to three drops of aloe vera juice. Massage gently on face and around the neck area then leave it for a while. This mask is best used during bed time so that you can wash it off in the morning when all your skin cells have been repaired.
Aloe vera is a natural ingredient that should never lack in your anti aging skin care. It is a natural anti inflammatory agent that is highly recommended for the aging. The moment you hit age 35, you need to start thinking about how you can retain your skin as attractive as that of a teenager. Aloe vera is among the most effective natural healing juices that are known to help get rid of dead skin, smoothen wrinkled skin, clear pimples and also moisturize your skin.
3: Papaya mask
Find a small papaya that is almost ripe and peel well. Rub it gently on your face and around the neck for a few minutes just before shower. Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Papaya is among the best anti aging ingredients used to make skin care products including soaps, creams and lotions. It is rich in Vitamin A, which is a popular beauty vitamin. It rejuvenates your skin and restores lost moisture. Vitamin C also helps conceal skin imperfections such as aging lines and laugh lines around the lips.
