Remember when your face used to be smooth and shiny? that even on a bad day or a full day of working, it still looked really smooth after washing your face?
As we get older and older, our skin aren’t as stretchy anymore, we start to develop wrinkles. It is completely possible to get it back, I will show you the natural ways to get rid of wrinkles here.
Before I show you the natural ways, I would like you to think about the last time you remember having a wrinkle-less face.
Aging is a part of life as we know, it is inevitable, but there are plenty of ways to slow it down and therefore keeping our skin healthier and younger.
Wrinkles develop due to aging, diet and some environmental factors.
Fruits That Can Do Wonders
Fruits are important for so many reasons, a delicious orange that weighs around 100 grams is packed with nutrients and multiple vitamins such as vitamin A, B and C which are essential in our diet.
Here are the top 3 fruits which I consider to be extraordinary for your skin.
Bananas are very delicious, I love eating it, but there’s one more thing we can use banana for, and that’s our face.
Banana peel has an antioxidant which is called lutein. Ultraviolet lights are extremely damaging to the skin, and lutein protects your skin from it.
Rub the peel for 10 minutes long, cover every area of your face and when the peel starts to turn into this brownish colour, that’s when you throw it away. You can mash the banana itself after it’s peeled and make a thick paste out of it and apply that on your face.
Let it sit for about 30 minutes to an hour before washing it off and you will notice that your face starts to feel smoother and smoother.
Pineapple on a pizza? Something people freak out for, but what about pineapple on your face? Pineapple has plentiful benefits, rich in antioxidants and vitamins. The antioxidants found in pineapples can protect your skin against cell damage.
It moisturizes the skin and keeps the elasticity of your skin. The wide array of benefits you get from pineapple does not stop from consuming only.
So the next time you plan on eating a pineapple, rub some freshly cut pineapple on your face and let it sit for about 20 minutes, after it dries out wash it off with some below room temperate water, not too cold.
I don’t particularly like to drink lemon juice or eat lemon itself, but I have to admit that it is one of the master fruits, what I mean by that is, the benefits you get for something as cheap and as small as this is almost unimaginable.
Some people say if you mix vitamin E with lemon and apply it directly onto your face it will remove the wrinkles right away, even though I don’t believe that, I do believe that lemon can help, but just not as fast as you may think.
The way I use lemon is by mixing it together with honey, after mixing it I will let it sit for about 5 minutes before applying on my clean face.
After you apply it, let it sit for about 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off with some cold water and then dry off your face with a clean towel.
Actually almost anything that’s rich in vitamin C can be applied onto your face, vitamin C improves the production of collagen in our skin.
The Sun Isn’t As Pretty As It Looks
I am sure you have heard about the damage ultraviolet lights can cause on your skin when exposed without proper protection. Sunscreen or sun lotion is extremely important for a reason, it’s not just to be fancy to have it on your daily skin care routine.
Here’s the sunscreen I use and like, I put it on every single day whenever I go out, even if it’s just for a 15 minutes walk to the store or market.
This has been scientifically proven to prevent your skin for getting more wrinkles, the elasticity of your skin will get damaged when you’re exposed to the sun for a long period of time without protection.
Don’t take this for granted and just take the extra 5 minutes to put on some sunscreen.
Egg Whites For The Face
One of the most unexpected natural remedy for wrinkles is probably egg whites, egg whites can do wonders to your health, your skin included. The protein, antioxidants and vitamins found in egg white helps tone and tighten the skin, so break an egg or two, mix it up in a bowl and start applying.
Wash your face after 20 minutes with lukewarm water to rinse of the dry egg white, and the skin on your face will start to look smoother and brighter.
Egg white also possess anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce swelling and puffiness. You can apply some under your eye bag while you’re at it to receive the maximum benefit.
Be Careful Of Your Sugar Intake
I think the reason I had a lot of wrinkles in my early 20s is solely because of my sugar intake. I have a sweet tooth and it is extremely hard to laid off the Twinkies, I know some of you can relate.
Even though I still eat a cupcake or a chocolate bar now and then, I tried to limit the amount of sugar I consume.
High amount of sugar intake can cause damage to the collagen molecules, and that will lead to faster aging. Faster aging will then lead to wrinkles and sagging of the skin.
It is recommended by doctors to limit your sugar intake to only 10% of your daily caloric intake.
Limiting the amount of sugar you consume daily can only be beneficial, your weight will be in better control, your skin will look younger and your overall health will go up.
Don’t Put On More Stress
Lets all just face it, we are all getting older and not younger, at some point we will get wrinkles and it is inevitable. The key is to look 30 while you’re 50 and 40 when you’re 60 or 70. So don’t take this for granted and take care of your skin, get used to a proper skin care routine.
