Homemade Wrinkle Treatment
Wrinkle masks and lotions can be applied daily to help tighten skin, reduce lines and prevent wrinkles. You can purchase wrinkle treatments at makeup counters and other retail outlets but these commercial wrinkle treatments can be pricey and may contain a lot of chemicals. It is just as easy to make your own natural wrinkle treatments from ingredients you already have at home or that you can find easily at health food stores.
* Egg Mask : The combination of egg whites, cucumber, lemon juice and brandy in this recipe makes an all out wrinkle fighter that will help wrinkles fade and new ones from forming. Cleanse your face with your usual cleanser. With a mixer or whisk, beat one large egg white in a bowl.
Add one teaspoon lemon juice, one teaspoon of rum or brandy, one and a quarter teaspoons of Sodium Benzoate and two tablespoons of cucumber juice to the beaten egg. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together. Apply the mask to the face and let harden. Wash off with a gentle cleanser. Keep the leftover mask in the fridge and apply as needed, at least once a week.
* Mung Bean Powder Treatment : Mixing Mung Bean Powder with your usual night cream and a little water creates a mask that will help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.Wash your face with your usual cleanser. Mix one teaspoon of mung bean powder into a small amount of your usual night cream.
As you mix, add small amounts of water until the mixture becomes mud like. Take the mixture and apply it to your face. Let the mixture dry for at least 10 minutes. Wash off with a gentle cleanser or just water.
* Good Old Fashion Lemon Juice : Using fresh juice from squeezed lemons or the juice from the plastic bottles, you can help diminish the appearance of wrinkles, crow's feet (lines by the corners of the eyes) in particular. If you use lemon juice on your face, be sure to apply sunscreen every time you are going outside as the lemon juice causes skin to be more sensitive to the sun's rays.
Cleanse your face and pat dry. Dip a cotton ball into the juice or squeeze it on out of the bottle so that the cotton ball is saturated but not dripping. Carefully apply the lemon juice to areas around the eyes and other places on the face that wrinkles appear. You should apply the juice once in the morning and once at night.
* Honey Lotion : This honey lotion will reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also simple to make with everyday ingredients found at home.Mix one teaspoon vegetable oil, one teaspoon honey and half a teaspoon of lemon juice together thoroughly in a bowl.
In a circular motion apply the lotion on your face and neck evenly. Mix the lotion in and let set for five to 10 minutes.
Using a wet towel or just water, rinse the lotion off.
