Wrinkles, Natural Treatment and Prevention
Yes, that first experience with wrinkles is all too familiar, and for most people probably goes something like this...
One sunny morning you wake up, stretch, and begin your daily routine...
Let the dog out, put the coffee on, grab the newspaper and head to the bathroom.
But before you take care of business you glance in the mirror...
"What!? Where did that come from!?" you say as you see the crows feet staring back at you.
Instead of the nice smooth skin you once had, you're now starting to see the signs of aging - and that Rolling Stones T-Shirt you opted to wear this morning is not helping you feel any younger.
We are going to show you how to reduce and prevent "THEM" (you know what I am talking about) naturally! - including
putting that coffee ON your face instead of just drinking it!
What Causes Them?
It's quite simple really, we can think of our skin as being a nice juicy supple grape, but if left outside in the sun too long, it dries out and wrinkles up.
Many years of harsh element exposure to things like; radiation and UV rays, leave us with the layers of our skin thinned out and dehydrated.
What Can Help?
Once they started to appear, you probably became much more interested in their reduction and removal.
Get enough rest, 6-8 hours is recommended. When you don't sleep enough, extra hormones are produced that break down skill cells and dry them out.
Avoid being in the sun for long periods of time. This is the #1 cause of lines and skin damage. If you do go out in the sun, wear a protective sunscreen wear a protective sunscreen made from natural ingredients like zinc oxide.
Vitamin A, eating salmon, cod liver oil, carrots or liver all help with the anti-aging process. Just remember; everything in moderation!
Vitamin C, applied topically, helps produce natural collagen regeneration, that tightens and firms the skin.
Here are some simple tips about anti aging with natural skin care and good living.
What Should I Buy
Always buy (and wear) a good sunscreen.
Keep your skincare as natural as possible. The fewer chemicals the better.
Things to Remember
You should always start by
exfoliating your skin. You want to exfoliate at least twice weekly, this will allow all of your dead skin cells to be removed, leaving the fresh skin ready to absorb any moisture.
Olive Oil is great for wrinkles , many studies have come out recently boasting of the power that olive oil has to help reduce fine lines and moisturize the skin.
Using olive oil in your cooking has many of its own benefits like; reducing heart disease risk and reducing the risk of some types of cancers.
Used topically, it reduces inflammation and minimizes oxidation, when your skin is not inflamed it will look smoother, firmer, and younger.
Face masks, particularly those made with mashed papaya and pineapple which act as a natural skin toner and preserve elasticity.
Raw Cocoa Butter is a common item amongst pregnant women to reduce stretch marks, but it is also very efficient in reducing fine lines and helping in the anti-aging process. It also provides a protective barrier from the harsh elements like radiation and UV rays.
Raw Shea Butter is highly moisturizing, evens out skin tone, and provides a protective layer over the skin from harmful UV rays. Remember, the reason our skin ends up looking like a raisin is due to it being dehydrated, so if you hydrate your skin it will start looking better.
What Should I Buy
Always buy the best quality natural ingredients you can afford. Here are some good examples of quality natural ingredients to help treat and prevent wrinkles.
