Everybody has yogurt stored somewhere in their fridge. Even if you don’t, it is readily available at the local supermarket. Yogurt is rich in lactic acid that effectively cleans the pores and shrinks them. This tightens the skin and makes it appear smoother. The ingredients you need are 3 to 4 tablespoons of yogurt and one tablespoon of olive oil. Mix the two until they become even and put the mask on your face and neck. Keep it there for some 20 minutes and then rinse it with lukewarm water. It is enough to apply the mask twice a week.
Many people forget to drink the proper amount of water each day. This causes numerous problems for the organism and its biggest organ: skin. The bare minimum of daily water intake is 2 liters a day, while some studies show that this number can be increased up to 5 liters a day. Water is important as it cleanses your organism and drives away all the bad material from under your skin. It literally rinses out all the toxic waste from your body through urine. That is why it is important to always carry a water bottle on your person or regularly pour yourself a glass of water. Its volume is usually a fifth of a liter, so you need at least ten of those a day. Your skin will be thankful.
Plenty of sleep
Any weightlifter will tell you that exercise and nutrition form only two-thirds of their muscles mass. The remaining third is sleep. Nighttime is the period when your whole body recuperates from the hardships of the previous day. This includes skin as well, which has time to regenerate and become elastic again. Just think about it, your skin looks best in the morning after you wake up after a good night sleep. That is why it is essential that you get those recommended 8 hours a sleep every day. During this time, your skin rests and the production of cortisol, a hormone that breaks down skin cells, is inhibited. After all, it isn’t called “beauty sleep” for nothing.
It’s in the genes
Before you try any measure against the wrinkly skin, you have to know that sometimes it is inevitable. If people in your family had them in their old age, you are likely to have them as well. However, this does not mean that wrinkles should not be combated.
When it comes to preserving youth, the ancient Chinese art of acupuncture might help. Special needles can be inserted by professionals at different points to improve the flow of energy. This has an effect on the skin as well, preventing the formation of wrinkles and smoothing out the surface of the skin.
Getting rid of wrinkles begins with the realization that you want to battle them. From there, just rummage through your kitchen to find the most suitable remedy described here.
Shy away from the sun
Although sunlight is good for the organism (after all, plants use it to produce oxygen), too much of it can be harmful. If you overexpose yourself to sun rays, the first organ that gets damaged is the skin. The UV rays from the sun dry up the skin and take away all the moisture. This makes the skin wrinkle faster and in the long run can cause tissue damages. Sun exposure also increases the risk of skin cancer. These are all reasons why you should always shade from the sun using an umbrella or a hat. Summertime at the beach is especially dangerous, so use sunscreens with high protection factors against the scorching sun.
A good natural substitute for anti-age creams that hardly ever help is egg white. This home remedy not only tightens your skin, but it eases fine and laugh lines of the face. People with oily skin should definitely use egg whites as they unclog pores and absorb all that sebum that the skin uncontrollably secretes. You need one egg white that you make a mask from and put it on your face two times a week. The application is similar to the yogurt mask. Whisk the egg white and apply it to the skin. Wait until it has dried completely to remove it using lukewarm water.
No cigarettes and alcohol
We see only the outer layer of the skin, but the things that make it bad come from within. Toxins are its number one enemy. They enter the organism in various natural ways, so there is no need for additional intoxication on our part. It is widely known that smoking increases the risk of cancer. Its carcinogens deprive the skin of the much-need oxygen. Alcohol has the similar effect, so be avoiding these two vices, means avoiding wrinkle formation as well.
Getting a facelift
If all measures fail and the wrinkles are persistent, perhaps you can take facelift surgery into consideration. It is the fastest and most effective way of getting rid of wrinkles. Cosmetic surgery is a routine operation that will instantly smoothen your skin. The facelift procedure is painless since you receive anesthesia and an overnight admission. The recuperation period is not longer than 10 days, a period which varies from patient to patient. After one month, there should be no traces of the procedure and you will look ten years younger.
All the tips above will help you keep wrinkles at bay but another important tips is to make sure you eat a healthy balanced diet filled with organic and/or local harvest foods. No processed foods with chemicals that loads your body with many toxins. Whether we are trying to reduce wrinkles or just keep our body, mind and soul healthy we must live a healthy lifestyle in all aspects of our lives.
