We all have nightmares about it, or at least I do: Premature wrinkles.
Perhaps it is the media that has caused us 20-somethings to obsess over wrinkles, where People magazine features the latest young celebs that have gotten Botox, including Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, and Kim Kardshian. And you know what? It’s sad to admit, but they all look good. Really good. (Save Lindsay, of course. She just got addicted to it and went bananas.)
So what are we mere mortals to do, especially when expensive Botox is out of the question? The answer is simple: We should strive to not only cure, but also prevent, premature wrinkles the natural way. By taking the au- natural route, we can avoid the repulsive trend of Botox, which is completely unnecessary for anyone under 50… Or 60 even.
In order to avoid a succumbing to the trend of Botox injections, consider trying the tips below. I promise you that you will see results in the matter of weeks, so what do you have to lose? Start following these tips now to get rid of wrinkles the natural way.
Use a milk and honey cleanser
Dating back to the times of the ancient pharos, milk and honey are an age-old secret to youthful skin. For one, milk is rich in lactic acid, which deep cleans the pores and stimulates the secretion of collagen. As for honey, keeps the skin moisturized, thus allowing your skin to retain its elasticity.
Take your vitamins
B-complex vitamins contain antioxidant properties that help stave off wrinkles. This types of vitamin can be found in organic meat, eggs, and whole wheat. Vitamins A, C and E are also natural anti-oxidants for the skin and are found in green vegetables and fresh fruit.
Wear sunscreen every day
It may sound like a hassle, but wearing sunscreen moisturizers every day is one of the most effective ways to prevent wrinkling of the skin. Be sure to wear it not only on your face, but also your neck and hands, which are telltale body parts that reveal your true age.
Use creams that contain Hydroxy Acid
For sun-damaged skin, alpha Hydroxy Acid works best, while the beta type is good for cleaning clogged pores and preventing premature wrinkles. So the next time you are shopping for face creams, check the back of the tube for this special ingredient!
Make an egg white mask
One of the newest trends for diminishing wrinkles, an egg white mask tightens pores and firms the skin, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles. In order to make the mask, separate the egg whites from two and whip them. Then, apply it to the face, leaving it on for about 20 minutes. When washing it off, be sure to use cool water.
Whip up a lemon juice and sugar exfoliator
Because lemon juice is rich in citric acid, it helps sand off dead skin cells, revealing the soft skin underneath. Sugar contains glycolic acid, which is also helpful in removing dead skin. In order to make the exfoliator, stir one teaspoon of sugar into two tablespoons of lemon juice and then mix well. Massage the solution onto your face, and after ten minutes, rinse it off with cool water.
Do facial exercises
It may seem silly, but performing facial exercises in the mirror can help tighten your muscles, thus diminishing your wrinkles. In order to get frown lines to disappear, press both index fingers on your forehead above your eyes and then push up against them with your eyebrows. Resist with your fingertips. Repeat this eight-10 times, rest, then repeat five times. For reducing excess baggage under your eyes, put your fingertips under your eyebrows and lift your eyelids before pressing your upper lids down, holding your fingertips in place. Count to five, and then relax.” Repeat this twice. For more facial exercises, visit.
