We develop wrinkles as we age; and this is something we can never stop. Wrinkles usually start developing near the mouth which are called as laugh lines and near the eyes and forehead. Dry skin can make you develop wrinkles soon, so it is essential you keep your skin moisturized throughout your life.
There are a lot of anti-aging face treatments and facemasks and creams available in the market, but you would agree with the fact that natural and homemade face masks always work better minus the side effects. Here are some face mask recipes you could try to delay aging show up on your face:
ALOE VERA FACE MASK
Aloe vera increases the elasticity of your skin and keeps it stretchable and soft.
To make this face mask, you need 1 teaspoon of fresh aloe vera gel (you may also use organic aloe vera gel that is available commercially), 1 teaspoon honey and 1 vitamin E capsule. Mix one teaspoon of aloe vera gel with the contents of a vitamin E capsule and honey. Apply the mixture to areas where wrinkles are forming. Leave it on half an hour and then wash it off with lukewarm water. Do this once every 3 days for good results.
ALMOND FACE MASK
Almonds delay the aging process and also helps reduce wrinkles.
To make this face mask you need 4-5 almonds, ½ teaspoon sweet almond oil and little milk. Soak some almonds in raw milk overnight. In the morning, remove the skin and grind the almonds into a thick paste by adding milk and almond oil to it. Apply the paste onto your skin and leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. You may also soak the almonds in day time and apply the grinded paste on your face before sleeping. It works equally great.
BANANA FACE MASK
Banana moisturizes skin and contains vitamin A and E, which helps reduce and prevent wrinkles.
To make this moisturizing face mask, you need 1 small banana, 2 tablespoons of heavy cream and 1 tablespoon organic and raw honey. Mash banana using a fork until a smooth paste is achieved. Add cream and raw honey and mix it well. You may add little milk to it to adjust the consistency so that it is spreadable. Apply this face mask all over the face and neck and leave it on for 30 minutes. Wash off using lukewarm water.
EGG AND PEACH FACE MASK
This face mask helps reduce wrinkles and has skin-tightening effects.
To make this face mask, you need 1 egg, 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of peach pulp. Take a bowl and break one egg into it. Separate out the egg yolk as you only need egg white. Now add honey to it and whisk it together. Add peach paste and thoroughly combine. Once the mask it ready, apply it on your cleansed face and neck, keep it on for 30 minutes and wash it off using lukewarm water.
