Fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the breakdown of collagen in the skin. Staying young looking is what most people dream to achieve. Because of this, various methods are being sought after to achieve such results, ranging from complex treatments to simple ones. Some would even choose the most expensive option just to get the best results.
Each individual has their own approach in keeping fine lines and wrinkles at bay. Here are some of the natural remedies that are widely used today:
1. Lemon Juice
There are things that one can find at home, specifically, in the kitchen. Lemon juice works wonders in reducing fine lines in hands, neck and even under eyes. It has oils that are very good in minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, without being too oily, and it is also effective when it comes to cleaning skin.
Next are eggs – egg whites, to be exact. By pampering the skin under the eyes with egg whites, the aging process is actually being slowed down and the skin is nourished with the required nutrients needed by the body (while keeping the skin soft too).
Eating blueberries is a way to fight fine lines and wrinkles. Blueberries have a high antioxidant content and fight free radicals, which are responsible for damaging the skin. Eating blueberries isn’t just a treat, but also a remedy for aging.
Water is the best way to keep your skin hydrated. This is the reason why people who are always exposed to the sun, or even to lights in studios that have extreme heat, always take in plenty of water. Water will keeps the skin moisturized and hydrated, while alcohol, on the other hand, will do the opposite.
These are the most popular anti-wrinkle remedies in the market these days: sunscreen, eye creams, Vitamin A (retinoid) creams, and AHA’s (Alpha-hydroxy Acids).
Sunscreen should be used during daytime, every time you go out – even if it’s a cloudy day. Eye creams and retinoid creams are applied at night, as it helps revive the skin, thus preventing fine lines and wrinkles from getting worse. AHA’s are formulated with glycolic or lactic acid to increase the collagen in skin damaged by the sun. They are usually found in skin cleansers or facial washes.
Some remedies are the most costly, but also the quickest in terms of results. Many people go for face lifts and Botox. Botox injections can siphon money out of your pockets with every injection and may be convenient for those who have the resources. Face lifts, on the other hand, are cheaper, but may produce less noticeable results than Botox.
Ultimately, the more natural the remedy applied, the better it is for the skin.
