Wrinkles are the result of the natural ageing process our skin goes through. They are very common but also dreaded. If you already have some or even if you have many, you can make them look better and less deep with these tips we gathered for you.
First and most important, prevent them. It is not a DIY, but it is a most in preventing the appearance of new wrinkles and also when keeping the old ones from getting bigger.
Wear sunscreen everyday, get enough sleep, eat enough vitamins and minerals and avoid smoking. These are all common sense measures to have a healthy life in general, but they are also helpful when avoiding wrinkle development.
After you’ve gotten this in order, go get aloe vera gel. This magical plant is responsible for curing a lot of skin problems, so it shouldn’t surprise you that it also helps wrinkles by improving the elasticity of your skin.
Apply the fresh gel on your skin and let it rest for around 15 to 20 minutes. Then rinse with lukewarm water. It is a really easy and basic face mask, but it will do wonders.
Every once in a while you could go for an exfoliation. Mix 1 tsp of lemon juice and 2 tbs of sugar and massage the mix on your skin, rinse it off after 10 minutes.
What happens with this exfoliant is that sugar repairs skin damage thanks to its glycolic acid, while the lemon scrubs away dead skin cells and helps with collagen production, due to its contents of citric acid and vitamin C.
Then, relax and get a massage. Not that the other options weren’t spa-like, but a facial massage helps firming the skin. Use your index and middle finger to rub your face in a circular motion. Go from below the ear, to the side of your neck and collarbone.
Then, move from under your chin to your face and massage from the inner corner of your eyes to the outer corners. Repeat this procedure five time to see results even faster. In the end, it will just be like taking some time off and pampering your skin. Finally, soak a handful of lemon balm in two cups of boiling water, just like a tea. Wait for it to cool down and then use it to rinse your face in the morning. This minty herb tightens the skin thanks to its astringent properties.
Now you see that treating wrinkles isn’t as impossible as it seems. Take care of your skin and give yourself some time to unwind while trying these simple tricks.
