DIY Beauty: Fighting the Effects on Aging on Your Face
We're all getting a little older and let's face it - most of us don't want to look like we are. I'm one for aging gracefully (even though I HATE my white hairs) but I also think there's no harm in slowing the process down just a bit, particularly on my face.
So, with that in mind, here are a few tips and tricks for prevent the signs of aging on your face.
Banana Wrinkle Fighter Recipe
Banana is wonderful as an anti-wrinkle treatment. Mash 1/4 banana until very creamy. Spread all over face and leave for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off with warm water followed by a dash of cold. Gently pat dry.
Avocado Carrot Cream Mask
This mask combines avocados, which are rich in Vitamin E, with carrots, which are high in beta-carotene and antioxidants, and cream, which is high in calcium and protein. These ingredients will rebuild skin collagen, improve tone and texture, and fade age spots.
1 avocado, mashed
1 carrot, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons honey
Combine all ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Spread gently over your face and neck, and leave in place 10-15 minutes. Rinse with cool water and follow with your favorite toner.
2 tbsp sugar
3 tbsp warm water
Stir sugar into warm water so that it melts.
Make sure granules are dissolved, otherwise they could tear your skin.
Apply to the face.
Gently massage around the skin.
Rinse with warm water OR I like to take a warm washcloth that's steamed in the microwave.
Goodbye Wrinkles Grape Use
Cut a Green Thompson seedless grape in half and gently crush it on your face at wrinkles (lines). Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water and let it dry in natural air. Wrinkles will disappear.
Pineapple Wrinkle Remover
Rub the core of pineapple on the face for a few minutes and leave for 10-15 minutes. This is excellent for fine wrinkles.
That's it for today and for Skin Care week here at DIY Beauty. I hope you've all enjoyed it and found something that you can use at home!
