Surely, each of us has our own unique beauty routine. Products like creams, lotions, and face masks line up your dresser and bathroom cabinet. All considered for the purpose of preventing or minimizing wrinkles to show to the world how awesome and young-looking your skin is!
Once upon a time, wrinkles are just normal signs of aging. As we age, the skin loses its moisture and elasticity which causes skin to wrinkle. Nowadays, lines can appear in your face at an early age. The usual enemy is our way of living. When we are always stressed, and forget to eat right and do not protect our skin from the harsh sun; these practices eventually cause dullness and premature lines to our face.
Wrinkle-free skin is quite expensive to maintain if you do it the cosmetic or surgical way. Moreover, these ways usually require exposure to a great number of chemicals and artificial ingredients. But why do this to yourself and spend more when you can do a home-based remedy for wrinkles.
These natural ways of skin tightening are still the best options to go for.
1. Papaya and Rice Flour Face Mask
Papaya is an excellent ingredient to make your DIY face mask. Papaya is rich in Vitamins C and E which are great for the skin’s elasticity. It also contains the enzyme named “papain” that will help reduce wrinkles, tighten skin and with a bonus of decreasing facial pores.
Rice flour also has Vitamin E to help further smoothen and exfoliate our skin. Combine these two together and you now have the best remedy for wrinkles and sagging skin.
For the preparation of a papaya skin firming face mask, you will need 2 tablespoons of honey mixed with ½ cup of rice flour and mashed papaya. Mix thoroughly before applying to the face and neck. Let it set and dry for 10 - 20 minutes then wash it off with cold water. Cold water for rinsing helps close out our skin pores.
2. Avocado and Wheatgrass Facial Mask
Avocado is another healthy fruit that can be beneficial to the skin. It contains oleic acid which help moisturize your face. A great amount of Vitamin E is also found in this wonder fruit that will serve as an antioxidant to fight the causes of aging. Wheatgrass also contains Vitamin A and E for more skin firming effects. This mask will also require yogurt. This superfood has lactic acid that will help remove dead skin cells. Overall, the result is a young and brighter facial appearance.
Have the blender ready and put in ½ ripe avocado, 2 tablespoons plain yogurt and 1 tablespoon wheatgrass juice. When you have a puree, you can now apply that to your face. Leave it for 15 - 20 minutes before rinsing with tepid water. Then immediately follow with toner.
3. Almond oil, Lemon juice and Honey Skin Firming MaskAlmond oil is a popular skin care product ingredient and considered as one of the best. It is highly moisturizing and contains Vitamin E. Again this vitamin helps delay skin aging since it supports collagen production which will do miracles for your skin elasticity. Lastly, lemon juice has vitamin C which will put forth more tightening and clearing of the skin.
This facial will need 1 tablespoon almond oil, 1 tablespoon lemon juice and also a tablespoon of honey. Mix together and apply to the face. Leave it to set for 10 - 20 minutes and wash with cold water after.
