Ask any woman on the street about her main beauty concern and chances are that the majority will answer wrinkles and anti-aging efforts. Nearly all women want to maintain smooth, supple skin throughout their lives but few are sure exactly how to do that. With all the hype about “new and improved” products, it can be difficult to figure out which product, if any, will work best for your skin. Fortunately, there are cheaper solutions that are just as effective as pricey boutique creams at preventing wrinkles and moisture in the skin. The best news is that you won’t have to break into your retirement fund early to pay for any of these products!
Castor oil is a cheap and effective eye cream that allows the skin to retain the necessary oils for a smooth complexion. Massage it around the eye area before bedtime for a powerful boost to the skin around your eyes.
For another wrinkle-buster for the eyes, soak two cotton pads in orange juice and lay one pad on each eye. Relax for about ten minutes. Orange juice tones and tightens skin to make fine lines and wrinkles disappear. It can also be used in the wrinkle-fighting mask: beat one egg white together with two teaspoons of orange juice, one-half teaspoon of lemon juice, and a few drops of sweet almond oil. Mix these ingredients thoroughly and apply them to your face. Let it dry for thirty minutes and then rinse.
Undoubtedly one of the cheapest and best ways to prevent wrinkles is through your diet. Make sure your daily meals are full of antioxidants and vitamins (especially Vitamins A through E) to assist your skin in fighting off free radicals and the loss of elasticity. You should also make it a point to include Omega-3 oils in your diet. The fatty acids found in Omega-3 oils are one of the prime players in maintaining smooth skin that keeps its elasticity and flexibility. Eat a well-balanced diet full of nutrients and vitamins, and you will be well on your way to defeating your wrinkles.
