There is no standard or specific age for the first wrinkles as there is for the first white hair. There is no need to panic at the sight of a crow’s foot or a frown line. Put your anxieties in the closet, these manifestations are not the consequences of old age and do not sound the death knell for the suppleness of your skin! Rather, learn how to tame them, or even blur them with the help of natural beauty tricks.
How do wrinkles form?
With age, the skin becomes thinner and slacker, offering itself to the gradual arrival of the first wrinkles. Of course, we are not all in the same boat, some are more or less wrinkled than others. Wrinkles are not only due to skin aging, but they are also the result of our repetitive facial expressions, which is why they are often referred to as “expression lines”, just as they can be the result of sun lacerations.
The first furrows generally appear in the thirties, they are not yet the result of a flattening of the confluence between the dermis and the epidermis. At the age of 40, cutaneous dryness and loss of elasticity of the dermis set in, leading to the formation of wrinkles that are no longer expressive. At the age of 50, the process accelerates, elastin and collagen diminish, causing a loss of tone, and in the decades that follow, wrinkles deepen even more and multiply. But let us not despair, all is not lost.
If cosmetology never ceases to praise the merits of anti-wrinkle products and techniques, nothing beats natural methods that come to the rescue of the skin. Here is a treatment that comes to us from Turkey and that has proven its worth. No need to ruin yourself with expensive creams, it is as simple to use as it is natural, especially since you probably have all the ingredients at home.
3 teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon honey
4 tablespoons powdered cinnamon
1 tablespoon vitamin E oil
4 tablespoons of milk
Method of preparation :
Mix all the ingredients together to obtain a homogeneous dough. Apply to cleansed face and neck, avoiding the eye contour area. Leave for about 15 minutes to allow the mask to take effect and then rinse your face with warm water. Your skin will look fresher and your complexion will be more radiant.
Better than botox, this Turkish mask owes its benefits to the softening, regenerating and moisturizing properties of honey and the antioxidant virtues of vitamin E, which fights against free radicals and the degradation of collagen and elastin fibers. Cinnamon is an outstanding ally for the skin, it helps to regulate sebum production.
Facial gymnastics that smooth
How about getting your face to do a little gym to reshape and tone it on a daily basis? For a maximum effect against wrinkles, combine massages, treatments and facial gym exercises to better relax the features.
For crow’s feet, for example, do this simple exercise, close your eyes and then widen them as much as possible.
The easiest exercise in the world is to pronounce the letters “u” and “o” in a hen’s ass.
To fight sagging neck, lift your chin up to the sky, and make a grimace by pushing your jaw forward, you will feel the tightness under your chin. Hold the position for a few seconds, and repeat the exercise about ten times.
To tighten the eye contour, place the index fingers on the outer corner of the eye and stretch the skin slightly at the sides as if you were redrawing the eyebrow line until the fingers meet at the edge of the eye socket. Repeat 10 times.
To work the muscles of the lower face, and plump the lip, close the jaw, and lower the lower lip, so that you can see the lower row of teeth and feel tension at the corners of the chin. Hold the exercise for 5 seconds and repeat 10 times.
It’s in your best interest to adopt a healthy lifestyle, with a preference for antioxidant foods and avoid cigarettes and alcohol. Also, remember to protect your skin from UV rays to ensure good muscle tone and healthy skin.
