Six super home remedies for wrinkles

Whether you have a few wrinkles or a lot, you’ll probably want to reduce their prominence. Before you head to the pharmacy for creams and serums, take a look in your kitchen and try out one or more of these home remedies:

1. Olive Oil

Massaging a small amount of olive oil into your wrinkles daily can help tighten up your skin. Alternatively, you could use coconut oil which will also help keep your skin feeling soft and looking youthful.

2. Ginger tea

Having a cup of hot ginger tea once or twice a day could help stop your skin’s elastin being broken down. Elastin and collagen work together to give your skin its shape and firmness so you can’t afford to have less elastin as it’ll result in more wrinkles.

3. Aloe Vera juice

Aloe Vera can be great for prolonging the appearance of and treating wrinkles, so why not have an Aloe Vera juice or smoothie? Aloe Vera helps increase how much collagen your skin has and this helps stop your skin sagging.

4. Lemon juice face mask

Make your own face mask by mixing a tablespoon of lemon juice, yoghurt and vitamin E oil together to give your skin a boost. You’ll need to leave it to work for twenty minutes but it should help to reduce any dark circles from around your eyes and smooth out your wrinkles.

5. Avocado face mask

Avocados are packed with vitamin E which helps refresh your skin and may make it look firmer. Simply mash the pulp of an avocado and apply to your face for twenty minutes before washing off.

6. Mint and cucumber face mask

To help give your face more shine and reduce your wrinkles, make a face mask from some mint leaves, cucumber and an egg white. You’ll be surprised by the difference it makes with just one application.
