I am currently on a crusade to discover secrets to fight or at most delay the effects of aging. My obsession has led me to do intensive research and scour through several books and articles. Its amazing the amount of people, mostly women who do some form of plastic surgery in order to keep their bodies young. I’ld say there’s even more pressure on celebrities and movie stars to keep looking young and having it together.
The truth is, aging is a natural process and no one can stop it but we can definitely slow down the process and age gracefully. I checked out loads and loads of anti-aging recipes. At first, I was a little skeptical but after reading several testimonies and trying out a few myself, …Yeah, I think I’m a believer.
It is possible to look stunning even though you are over 70; Just ask Fitness Guru, Jane Fonda. She’s 73 and still looks gorgeous and not because of extensive plastic surgery. Now a lot of us know the basics of looking younger – use sunscreen, do the right hairstyle, wear good shape wear and exercise but beyond this I’m going to be sharing some natural anti-aging recipes that will make you look and feel younger overtime and sometimes immediately.
Wrinkles appear for many reasons. As we grow older our skin cells lose their natural ability to produce collagen and elastin and the proteins which bind the cells together to reduce wrinkles and give smoother skin. It is safer to use natural extracts because they are harmless to our skin and their effectiveness comes from the fact that they are living enzymes and they promote the smooth, healthier and younger-looking skin that we strive for.
Check out some of these recipes:
Recipe 1: Natural anti-aging with milk
Milk acts as a skin hydrator and promotes healthy new cells. Regularly, massage milk on your face and neck before sleeping at night and wash your face well in the morning.
Recipe 2: Coffee and Plum Exfoliator
Coffee exfoliates and revitalizes your skin and has anti aging properties
Plum is another effective antioxidant.So this combination of coffee and plum works great in getting rid of the oldest dead skin cells and makes a wonderful anti-aging exfoliator.
Take one tablespoon fine ground coffee and mix it with 3 mashed plums and one teaspoon honey. Apply it on your face and gently scrub off after ten minutes.
Recipe 3:Natural Anti Aging with Egg Whites
Egg whites also give the skin a lifting effect and hence, help reduce wrinkles; it can be used with a dash of honey or almonds. Whip egg white till it becomes foamy. Apply on your skin and let it dry and then rinse it off.
Egg whites are especially effective on the skin around your eyes. This skin is extremely delicate and fragile and progressively becomes thinner as we age. Dabbing egg whites on the skin around your eyes and allowing it to dry will temporarily lift and tighten your skin and remove fine lines and wrinkles.
Recipe 4: Green Tea and Chamomile Toner
Green Tea and Chamomile is a very effective anti aging toner. This toner not only takes care of signs of aging but also soothes puffy eyes and lightens your complexion.
Recipe 5: Natural Anti Aging with Vitamin C
Lemon and orange juice contains plenty of natural Vitamin C which is known for rejuvenating wrinkled skin; it gives many other benefits to our skin. Not only does this vitamin help in getting rid of damaging free radicals, but vitamin C also stimulates the production of Collagen. Applying the juice directly to your skin should be avoided, instead mix it with milk cream and apply. It will restore the moisture levels in your skin and improve your complexion as well.
Aloe Vera is an important ingredient in natural anti aging skin care recipes because it can do wonders for your skin; it has the ability to firm the skin tissue and bring back elasticity that your skin has lost. This automatically lessens the wrinkles. Aloe Vera also provides your skin with oxygen and adds to your skin’s overall strength.
Natural beauty products are readily available, but if you use your own home made natural anti aging skin care recipes, you will have to be patient because it can take a little while for the visible effects to appear. The effects are cumulative and long lasting and very well worthwhile. If you follow these recipes religiously it can easily take 10-15 years off your face!
