No matter what your age, you don’t want wrinkles interfering with how you look, and you don’t have to! You can create a natural wrinkle cream to use regularly to stave off fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging on your skin. By taking a proactive stance now, you can start reducing the appearance of any lines you have and stop new ones from forming.
To take good care of your skin, you must make sure that you have it properly cleansed before you use any type of cream or moisturizer. Otherwise, you could trap dirt and bacteria against the surface of your skin. Additionally, you need to use a mask regularly that will help to exfoliate dead skin cells. A good wrinkle cream cannot make up for an otherwise poor beauty routine.
Likewise, it cannot compensate for poor dietary choices. Learn more about good nutrition and the healthy fats your body needs. As you address your consumption habits, consider quitting alcohol and definitely give up cigarettes. Both of these wreak havoc on your skin along with the rest of your body.
Creating a moisturizing product to reduce wrinkles is a personal process. You will want to choose ingredients based on your skin type and conditions. This is the beauty of making your own products at home! For instance, someone with very oily skin will want to avoid the heavier oils and butters used in some natural wrinkle cream recipes.
Jojoba oil makes for an ideal base for any type of skin moisturizing product. Make sure you purchase a bottle of pure jojoba oil so that you can adjust the ratio to other oils. This particular one is very lightweight and is readily absorbed by all skin types.
You can add cocoa butter or coconut oil in equal parts to the jojoba oil. Start by melting them in a non-metallic pot on low heat. Then, whisk in the jojoba oil, making sure it is well blended. Allow it to cool slightly and then pour into a sterile glass jar with a tight lid.
For oily or combination skin, you can switch to olive oil for all or part of the cocoa butter. Also, you can add aloe vera once you have removed the mixture from the heat. Another option to reduce the appearance of wrinkles is to add essential oils to the mix once it has cooled slightly.
For wrinkles, consider frankincense, myrrh, and lavender. Carrot seed and bergamot essential oils are also good for aging skin. Use no more than five drops per teaspoon of base oil and blend well. Store containers in cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
You can make adjustments to the ratios until you have the perfect wrinkle cream for your skin. Within a short period of time, you will notice that your face is softer and smoother than it has been in years. Enjoy making your natural beauty products at home, as well as the amazing results you get from them!
