Skin wrinkles: Causes and 8 best home remedies

Do you think skin wrinkles and dark spots are ruining your beauty? If yes, you have to start including natural ingredients in your skin care routine. These natural remedies are effective and absolutely safe. Read on to know more about these awesome ingredients. When it comes to aging, skin wrinkles is a critical issue.

What causes skin wrinkles?

Our skin has two layers thus the outer and the inner layer. Skin wrinkles occurs in the outer layer. The outer is made up of collagen and other proteins. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. The collagen is what makes our skin elastic and smooth. Less collagen results in saggy skin with wrinkles. Lots of factors contribute to this process. Here are some:

  • Sun burns
  • Smoking
  • Inadequate fluid intake
  • Inadequate dietary intake
  • Pollution and toxins
  • Natural aging
  • Sleeping on your side ( with your cheek pushed against your pillow)

Home remedies for skin wrinkles

1. Lemon juice

Slice a lemon and massage the juice into fine lines and skin wrinkles on your face. The acidity of lemon helps skin look brighter. This reduces the appearance of skin wrinkles. Breathe in deeply for the added aromatherapy bonus of fresh citrus to revive your senses.

2. Coconut oil

It is rich in antioxidants and can prevent the formation of free radicals. Free radicals are one of the primary causes of early aging. Coconut oil is a natural skin-softening moisturizer and contains emollient, which helps reduce skin wrinkles that have already developed. Massage into your skin each night before bed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep.

3. Olive oil

It’s used more often as a moisturizer because it’s rich in antioxidants, vitamins A and E. It also helps to fight the skin-damaging free radicals.

Leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. The vitamin A will help fade dark spots and blemishes, while vitamin B will prevent aging. Besides potassium will moisturize and hydrate skin cells.
