We are all searching for our own fountain of youth to be rid of facial wrinkles. Even though wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, having them can make us feel tired and old. Luckily, there are several natural ways to reverse this aging process right in your own home.
In learning how to reverse the effects of aging, first we should understand why wrinkles occur. Wrinkles in the skin are caused by many things. Some of the major culprits for causing wrinkles are: routine and constant facial expressions, simply growing older, damage from the sun, lack of hydration, smoking, or making contact with other free radicals like pollution. The following suggestions may help to reverse some of the signs of aging.
First, let’s talk about beauty regiments. Regularly washing your face and using age-appropriate skin care are the first steps. The cleaning and moisturizing of the face is an anti-aging process in itself. Keeping your skin clean actually sheds off old skin and literally keeps your face younger and fresher.
But what about doing more than just cleaning/moisturizing skin? When the basic regiment is not enough, consider using organic essential oils as part of your quest to anti-aging. The usage of organic essential oils is more commonly called “aromatherapy.” Aromatherapy can use organic essential oils to help reduce fine lines because these essential oils are loaded with antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, enzymes, and calcium for the skin.
To apply organic essential oils, carrier oils are needed. This is because essential oils are too concentrated for direct application to fine lines and wrinkles. Age-defying organic essential oils can be found in most health-food and drug stores or where aromatherapy products are sold.
Another approach in finding younger skin is through the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles. Long term prevention of winkles starts by doing small simple things. Some preventative methods are, using sun screen, drinking more water, and living a healthier lifestyle in general.
Because the sun can cause damage to the skin, using sun screen lotions on your face will help prevent wrinkles. UV rays can harm the surface of your skin and penetrate several layers deep, making sun screens paramount for younger looking skin. Some dermatologists recommend using sun screen lotions that are gentle on delicate facial skin.
So how can drinking water prevent wrinkles? A lot of the sagging that occurs in skin can be due to a lack of hydration. Drinking more water can rejuvenate saggy skin and keep wrinkles from appearing.
In general, healthy living will help keep wrinkles from showing up whither this is done by using anti-aging treatments, avoiding sun damage, or increasing your body’s hydration.
