Home Remedies for Wrinkles

"Let food be your medicine and your medicine be your food. Each one of the substances in a person's diet, acts upon the body and changes it in some unique way, and upon these changes the whole life depends, whether in health, in sickness or convalescent."  

Hippocrates 2 000 years ago.

Some important help for you from home remedies for wrinkles....if you have respect for your life:

  • never ever refer to the size of a womans' butt.
  • never comment on the grey hair she has just found.
  • and strength to you if you say anything at all when you spot a wrinkle.

So, what Actually Causes Wrinkles?

Wrinkles start forming when our skin loses its suppleness and starts keeping the lines formed from smiling, frowning etc.

  • There are probably two causes of wrinkles and one of them is aging which is inevitable and unavoidable.
  • The second cause is the way we treat our skin which could mean our diet, smoking and probably the biggest culprit of all....... overexposure to the sun.

What is the Best Thing for Wrinkles?

You can never prevent wrinkles, it is part of the ageing process,  but there are things you can do to slow down this process and you are never to young to start:

  • Stay out of the sun, but if you have to be exposed always wear a sun block and a hat.

  • Wear sunglasses in bright sunlight to prevent continuous squinting.

  • Never use a sunbed.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • STOP SMOKING NOW, it will show around your lips sooner or later.

  • Enjoy regular exercise, it improves the circulation which is nourishing for the skin.

  • Moisturise your skin day and night.

How do I get rid of wrinkles on my Face? Use an Avocado Pear Face Mask!

  • Mash the flesh of a ripe avo with a drop of lemon juice.

  • Smooth over your face, avoiding your eyes.

  • Relax (important) and leave for at least 15 minutes.

  • Avocado pear contains an ingredient called glutathione, which helps to fight wrinkles and some scientists believe it is the best kept anti-ageing secret!!

I'd say this would be worth a try?

What is the Best Way to get rid of Wrinkles Naturally? - Use Papaya and Oatmeal

  • Peel and mash a ripe papaya.

  • Take one tablespoon of the mashed papaya and mix with one tablespoon of oatmeal.

  • Rub gently over your face, avoiding your eyes.

  • Leave on for 15 minutes and then rub vigorously into your skin and wash off properly.

Oats for Natural Skin Care

Oatmeal has many good properties to improve and maintain skin health.

  • It has anti-inflammatory traits, is full of fats which makes it a very good moisturiser, and because it is slightly rough it works very well as a scrub, getting rid of loose unwanted skin.

  • And lastly, but probably most important of all it has cleansing properties that remove dirt and oil from the skin, contributing towards healthy skin.

Papaya also has a few healthy contributions to make towards helping premature appearance of wrinkles:

  • It contains an enzyme called papain which has been used in traditional medicine for many years, and which, it has been suggested, will help against  the onset of wrinkles because it helps modulate the collagen and elastic fibres in the skin.

  • There is no scientific evidence as yet of this, but other properties like moisturising properties and the anti-oxidants contained in papaya all help towards the repair of damaged skin, and the start of wrinkles.
