Natural Wrinkle Treatments You Can do at Home

Limit sun exposure

Apply sunscreen every day before you head outdoors. Reapply after swimming or exercise.

Sunglasses

Always wear your shades to protect the sensitive skin around your yes where you don’t apply sunscreen, and to prevent squinting.

Water

One of the most important things you can do to help keep your skin healthy and reduce wrinkle formation is to be sure that you are always well hydrated. Drink plenty of fresh water every day.

Quit smoking

Smoking causes wrinkles by decreasing circulation and introducing free radicals. Pursing the lips to inhale and squinting from smoke irritation may exacerbate existing wrinkles and cause new wrinkles to form.

Sleep on your back

It is believed that some cheek and forehead wrinkles may be caused by sleeping with one’s face pressed against the pillow.

Carrots

Cook about 3 carrots in a little bit of water to help release the vitamin A. Mix carrots, cooking water, and 2-3 tbsps honey in a blender until they are the consistency of a cream or lotion. Apply to your skin and leave mask on for 10 – 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Note: for extra moisturizing, add 1 tbsp coconut oil to warmed mixture. Or you can add 1 tbsp olive oil.

Egg Whites

Beat a couple of egg whites until rich and creamy to make a great wrinkle-fighting mask. Spread over face and neck and leave on for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Try this once a week.

Milk and Honey

Rich in lactic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid, and humectant compounds for moisturizing, a simple mix of milk and honey is an ancient anti-wrinkle treatment.

Mix a tablespoon of honey with a half tablespoon of whole milk, massage into the skin, and leave it on for 15 minutes. Rinse with tepid water.

Use as often as you wish as a treatment and a cleanser.

Flax Seed Oil

Consuming a tablespoon of flax seed daily is a great way to promote healthy skin and prevent premature wrinkling.

Cauliflower

Create a great mask. Purée cooked tender cauliflower and let it cool. Apply to your face and neck. Leave on for 30 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Can add olive oil or coconut oil and honey for extra moisturizing.

Lemon

Apply the juice of one lemon to the face at least once a day to lessen the appearance of wrinkles.

Lemon Juice and Sugar

Mix a teaspoon of sugar with a couple tablespoons of lemon juice. Massage into skin and rinse off after 10 or 15 minutes with water that is cool, to room temperature.

Grapes

Cut a few green seedless grapes in half. Press halves against your face, crush, and squeeze. Rinse with warm water after a few minutes. Pat dry. Use at least once a week.

Cucumbers

Blend several cucumbers and strain excess moisture to make a refreshing mask. Leave on for 30 minutes and remove with soap and water. Try this as often as you wish.

Honey, Oatmeal and Olive Oil

Mix together to make a mask you can leave on all night, though you may want to change your pillowcase.

Rinse with warm water in the morning.

Avocado

Mash the pulp of an avocado to create a mask rich in moisturizing Vitamin E. Leave on face and neck for 15 minutes, then rinse.

Papaya and Banana

Purée about ¼ of a papaya and ¼ of a banana to make a mask. Leave on for 30 minutes at least once a week.

Coconut Oil

Add a couple drops of vitamin E to 1/8 cup of virgin coconut oil. Massage on face before bed. Discard leftover. Try this every evening.

Healthy Diet

A balanced and healthy diet feeds and promotes healthy skin.

Vitamins

If you feel you may not receive enough vitamins from your diet, do supplement with a good multi-vitamin. Vitamins A, C, E, and the B-complex vitamins are essential to good skin.
