Natural Anti-Aging Recipes

You don’t always have to spend a bundle for expensive anti-aging serums, creams and other products. Some home remedies can really work wonders on your skin. Check out these natural anti-aging recipes that you can create in your own kitchen!

Lip Wrinkles

Mash ¼ very ripe papayas

Apply the papaya generously to your lips and the surrounding area. Leave on for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with an exfoliation treatment. Apply moisturizer. You can also use ¼ cup of papaya juice, applying it with a cotton ball.

Aging Skin

  • 2 tsp. plain yogurt
  • ½ tsp. honey
  • ½ tsp. lemon juice
  • 3 capsules Vitamin E (300 units)

Combine honey, lemon juice and yogurt. Open Vitamin E capsules and fold into the mix. Leave on your face for 15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with a toner and moisturizer.

Eggs for Wrinkles

Apply a thin film of one beaten egg white on your face. The beaten egg white tightens the skin and smoothes out the wrinkles. Rinse and apply toner. Follow up with moisturizer.

Anti-Aging Toner

  • ½ cup distilled water or pure spring water
  • 2 tsp. green tea leaves or 1 green tea bag

Bring the water to a boil. Place the tea bag or tea leaves in a glass bowl. Pour the boiling water over the green tea and steep for 2 to 3 minutes. Strain the green tea into the bottle. Let it cool. Using cotton balls, apply to skin. Do not rinse. Apply moisturizer. Green tea calms and tightens the skin. Green tea also contains anti-oxidants that fight the signs of aging.

Cranberry Facial Mask

Cranberries are rich in Vitamin C, Flavonoids and Vitamin K. One of the least talked about vitamins, Vitamin K works wonders on dark circles and wrinkles.

  • 3/4 cup cranberries
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp. almond meal

Mix all ingredients together and apply liberally to your face. Leave on your face for 15 minutes and then rinse with warm water. The almond meal exfoliates, cranberries work as an astringent and the yogurt and honey have moisturizing qualities.

Hope you enjoy these simple skin care recipes that help us in our aging fabulous quest!
