Although it is impossible to eliminate facial wrinkles permanently, there are a number of natural remedies that can help us mitigate them and slow them down. Nutrition also has its importance, with the consumption of foods rich in antioxidants and vitamins, as well as a series of useful tips, which relate to the lifestyle to be adopted to delay skin aging and stay young longer.
Hydration, nourishment, exfoliation, are key words to fight wrinkles: the skin is kept more elastic and toned, and the cellular turnover is favored, for a skin with a smoother appearance. Here are some effective and do-it-yourself natural remedies.
Pineapples to remove dead cells: the citric acid content makes pineapple an excellent ingredient for eliminating dead skin cells from the skin. Apply the slices of pineapple directly on the skin or prepare a smoothie with pineapple and apple in equal parts and apply on the face, insisting on areas where wrinkles are more pronounced. Leave on for a quarter of an hour and rinse with lukewarm water.
Lemon against stains: often, in addition to wrinkles, with the passage of time, small skin spots may form on the skin of the face. In these cases, lemon is an effective natural remedy: rich in vitamin C and antioxidants, it has the power to lighten the skin. Apply lemon juice to the skin for at least 15 minutes a day and rinse with warm water. You can do it in the morning as soon as you wake up or in the evening before going to bed.
Papaya for an elastic skin: papaya contains a high percentage of vitamin A, in addition to papain which helps to keep the skin more toned and elastic. All you need is a ripe papaya. Cut it into slices and mash it to create a creamy mixture that will act as an anti-aging mask. Apply to the face for a quarter of an hour and rinse with warm water.
Vegetable oils to nourish: olive oil and coconut oil are rich in antioxidants that slow down cellular aging while sweet almond oil is excellent for nourishing and giving elasticity to the skin. Jojoba oil, on the other hand, helps to counteract the aging caused by sunlight. These oils should be massaged on the face before going to bed.
You can enhance the action of these natural anti-aging remedies using, after each mask or treatment, anti-wrinkle creams based on plant extracts that contain collagen, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants.
