Wrinkles and eye bags are a ubiquitous sign of aging, mistreatment of skin, and poor lifestyle choices. Though we cannot reverse aging, with little care we can delay the appearance of wrinkles and eye bags, or at least make them appear less prominent even after they have appeared. Although there are many anti-wrinkle creams, serums, and supplements available, natural ways to get rid of your wrinkles are always preferable. Adopting a healthy lifestyle also helps along with quitting smoking.
Bright Side wants to introduce you to some natural remedies that can effectively reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and under-eye bags.
The wrinkling of the skin is caused primarily by aging and other factors such as habitual facial expressions, sun damage, smoking, and poor hydration. There is no way the appearance of wrinkles can be stopped, but by living a healthy lifestyle and using some natural remedies, their appearance can be delayed and camouflaged.
Take several egg whites and whip them up in a small bowl. Massage it all over your face and let it sit and dry for at least 15 minutes. After it dries, rinse it off with warm water. Vitamin A and vitamin B help in reducing and gradually removing wrinkles.
Olive oil helps by keeping your skin soft and supple. Before heading to bed, massage your face gently with a few drops of olive oil and rinse it off using a soft towel. You’ll wake up to soft and healthy looking facial skin.
Massage the juice of 1 lemon into the fine lines and wrinkles on your face before you go to sleep. The acidity of the lemon reduces the appearance of wrinkles and makes the skin appear brighter.
Fruits and vegetables
Fresh fruits and vegetables are filled with Vitamins A and D. They restore the glow of your skin and make it look younger.
Removing the bags from under your eyes
Tea contains natural tannins, which is a mild diuretic and has long since been used by grandmothers and runway models to reduce eye puffiness. Soak 2 tea bags in warm water then let them chill for a couple of minutes in the refrigerator. Place 1 tea bag on each eye for 5 minutes and your eyes will feel refreshed.
Tiredness often causes dark circles under the eyes and can add years to your appearance. To make these dark circles disappear, place slices of ripe avocado under each eye, or try applying a paste of ground almonds and milk.
If your eyes are red and puffy, take 2 thin slices of cold cucumber, lie down, and put a slice over each eye for 30 minutes.
Take 2 metal teaspoons and put them in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes. After they get chilled, place the bowls of the spoons over your eyelids for 30 to 60 seconds. The cold of the metal will help revive the tired eyes and make you feel refreshed.
Removing perioral wrinkles
Often, the first signs of aging are the appearance of these: nasolabial folds, laugh lines, and marionette lines. These can also be hastened by the habit of smoking. So, what can you do to delay these lines? Kick the smoking habit! Also, the 2 natural remedies mentioned below will help you delay their occurrence and reduce them once they have appeared.
Cucumbers and egg whites
Take half a cucumber, peel it off and cut it into small pieces. Grind these pieces into a pulp and sieve it to obtain juice. Crack an egg and mix the egg white into this juice and stir. Rub this mixture over your face, especially around your mouth. Let it sit for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes wash your face using water.
Put a little sauerkraut over your wrinkles for 10 minutes and then wash it off. Eating sauerkraut is also a good way to prevent wrinkles as the cabbage present in it is a good source of vitamin A.
