Wrinkle is undoubtedly the most talked about concern of every individual’s life, especially women. Every day we see numerous ads over TV and magazines of various wrinkle reducing face creams or gel, which claim to cure wrinkles “magically” (seems like a magic wand). But do you that wrinkles are just a way of your body saying that- hey are growing old!
Wrinkles are a part of our body’s natural ageing process, where the collagen and the other connective tissues of our skin become weak and break down. Thus they are unable to keep our skin tight and elastic and hence we see the sagging of the skin as it becomes thin. Some people also face pre-mature wrinkles which occur under their eyes, hand or back. This is caused by either by excessive exposure to sunlight, stress, sudden weight loss, certain drugs, harsh environment or smoking. Thus some people take collagen or Botox shots to regain the lost collagen in the skin and improve the elasticity of the skin. However these are quite expensive and also harmful for the skin in the long run.
Some of the home remedies to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the skin are-
A good massage always works wonder
Massage your skin regularly with olive oil or almond oil as they are rich in vitamin E and vitamin A, which are anti-oxidants which help fight off the wrinkle causing free radicals in the skin. It will also help to moisturize and regenerate your skin. Regular massage helps get rid of the dead skin cells and makes the skin supple.
Go green, choose aloe
Aloe Vera is seriously a wonder plant for all your skin issues. It contains the malice acid, which improve the elasticity of the skin and hence reduce the appearance of the wrinkles.
Ginger is not just for your curries
Most of the anti-wrinkle creams contain ginger as an active ingredient. It is rich in anti-oxidants and helps reduce the breakdown of the elastic in the skin.
The antidote Fenugreek
Fenugreek seeds and leaves also work wonder for your skin and hair. They are rich in various minerals and vitamins, which are easily absorbed by the skin and hence reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Go the banana way
Want soft, supple and smooth skin? Then bananas are on the rescue. Rich in antioxidants and vitamins, ripe bananas treat the wrinkles and rejuvenate your tired skin.
