As we age, our natural oil production decreases, creating dry skin that, over time, is less resilient to the constant stretching of our muscles, resulting in wrinkles.
Besides eating healthy, plant- based foods, the logical solution to prevent wrinkles is to simply replace the lost oils! There are plenty of products on the market that claim to do just that. But pick up any bottle of the latest anti-aging or wrinkle cream and read the ingredient list; if you aren’t shocked by the difficult-to-pronounce-or-identify ingredients, then you just might be shocked by how many ingredients there are!
Natural oils contain nothing to cause the immune system alarm, can be absorbed safely, effectively, and retain moisture. Plus, the nutrients and proteins in essential oils actually encourage cell-regeneration and won’t clog pores! Why spend excessive amounts of money on counterproductive poisonous commercial creams when you can make your own safe and effective recipes at home?
Here we share with you a DIY Anti-Aging Cream that contains natural ingredients to prevent and combat wrinkles:
Homemade Anti-Aging Face Cream
Makes about ½ cup (lasts about 3 months)
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 tablespoon of olive or almond oil
- 2 teaspoons of Vaseline
Heat the Vaseline in a microwave for 20 seconds, and then add the other ingredients. Mix well until you get a smooth texture. Pour the cream into a glass container and massage your face with it. Leave it to work for half an hour, and then remove the cream with a wet cloth.
Use the cream regularly and improve the quality of your skin.
- It takes more than an hour for the cream to be absorbed into your face, so make sure you apply it at least two hours before going to bed.
- Keep the cream stored in the fridge.
- You can use it twice a day without any adverse side-effects.
