The passage of time is merciless. Over the years, wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear on the face and body. A natural and unavoidable phenomenon. Of course, we all dream of prolonging our youth and remedying premature aging. While some people resort to cosmetic surgery to the rescue, others are hostile to invasive methods and prefer the gentle methods recommended by cosmetology. However, you don’t have to splurge on expensive anti-aging creams and treatments. There is an alternative: certain rituals to apply at home, based on natural ingredients, can help you slow down and fade those wrinkles that are ruining your life.
Who wouldn’t like to look 10 years younger? In addition to adopting a healthy lifestyle to maintain your shape and vitality, you can incorporate some natural and effective remedies into your beauty routine to improve the quality of your skin. Sometimes all it takes is a few ingredients to moisturize, deeply nourish and provide all the nutrients your skin needs. But don’t be fooled, there is still no miracle cure to get rid of wrinkles for good!
In this article, the natural care products we propose will act in two ways: prevention of premature aging of the skin and attenuation of the fine lines already visible on the face. Thus, with each application, your skin will appear smoother to the touch, more elastic, softer and more luminous. By being perfectly hydrated and therefore much less dry, wrinkles will tend to be less visible and faded.
Zoom on these home-made facial masks that will act as a rejuvenating cure from the very first applications!
Anti-wrinkle rice mask
This anti-aging mask, rich in vitamin E, is made from rice, milk and honey.
Rice has been used and appreciated by the Japanese for centuries in cosmetic care. Yes, if rice remains a key ingredient in Japanese cuisine, especially in the famous sushi, it also has a privileged place in beauty rituals. And for good reason, this starch is full of virtues for the skin. Rich in linoleic acid, squalene and vitamin B, it is a powerful antioxidant that stimulates collagen production and cell renewal. Thus, thanks to all its benefits, it slows down the aging process, reduces wrinkles and fights against the harmful effects of UV rays on the skin. It is understandable why Japanese people often have smoother, younger and more radiant skin! In addition, it also contains vitamin E and gamma oryzanol, known for their ability to protect the heart and reduce cholesterol.
In other words, this natural rice remedy will noticeably rejuvenate the skin on your face, which you will quickly feel more supple and smooth. Not only will wrinkles be less visible, but as an added bonus, even dark spots will be gradually diminished.
To prepare this face mask, you will need:
1 tablespoon of honey
1 tablespoon of warm milk
3 tablespoons of rice (organic)
Boil the rice and save the cooking water. Put the drained rice in a bowl.
Add the hot milk and honey. Mix well to obtain a homogeneous solution.
Directions for use
Apply this mask on your face (carefully washed and dried).
Once dry, rinse your face with the rice water.
Note that rice water contains antioxidants and healing substances that moisturize the skin, improve blood circulation and noticeably fade brown spots and wrinkles.
Apply this remedy once a week. The results will not be long in coming.
N.B.: the combination with milk and honey is particularly judicious. Both are known to provide deep hydration and exfoliation to the skin. Antibacterial, honey fights against skin imperfections, especially acne. While the milk will smooth and tone the face. This powerful duo has been popular for centuries: it is even one of the beauty elixirs used by Queen Cleopatra herself!
Natural masks to eliminate wrinkles
It is a great classic of natural remedies to make yourself: the avocado contains essential fatty acids which protect the skin from free radicals, like vitamin E. A real treat on toast, often praised for its anti-cholesterol benefits, the avocado is also one of the best beauty allies. Rich in potassium and vitamin B, it has protective and moisturizing properties for the face, hands and hair.
Combine three tablespoons of olive oil with the pulp of half a ripe avocado. Mash it with a fork until you get a soft mush without lumps. Apply this mask to the face by massaging gently and leave on for 10 minutes. Remove with lukewarm water.
Your skin is perfectly moisturized, softened and glowing with health!
Mask with oatmeal
Did you know that oats are full of dietary fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals? Very popular in the beauty world, thanks to its content of beta-glucan, zinc, flavonoids and phenols (ferulic and caffeic acids), this cereal is an inexhaustible source of benefits for all skin types, even the most acne-prone. This superfood gives you a luminous complexion, a healthy glow and a perfectly hydrated face. As a bonus, oats are an anti-wrinkle emollient that boosts collagen production.
Prepare a semi-dense porridge with water and flour to be slightly heated on the stove or in the microwave. Apply the warm mixture (not hot either!) evenly to your face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
You’ll already feel a difference: your face is more purified, healthy and revitalized.
Finally, apply this very quick remedy that makes wrinkles appear less deep. For those who don’t know, eggs are a powerful anti-aging agent: egg whites in particular are used in beauty care to fight blackheads, acne, redness and other skin blemishes.
To make this anti-wrinkle mask: beat the egg white in a bowl until it foams. Add the juice of half a lemon and 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Mix it all together. Apply this solution to your face and neck in a thin layer. Let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing with warm water. Then apply a good nourishing cream.
A real healthy glow mask with immediate effect!
