These days, more than ever, women demand higher standards for their beauty. Every day more and more cosmetic products are being brought out to enhance and rejuvenate the natural beauty of women’s skin.

There are effective wrinkle creams available now that can turn back the clock many years as far as looks are concerned. But often these creams, even though they work well, are quite expensive.

In this article, we will look at some simple anti aging home remedies to help combat the signs of aging as well as investigating what causes wrinkles in the first place.

When Do You Start To Have Wrinkles?

It is usually as someone goes past the age of 30 that their skin starts to become thinner and becomes unable to retain enough moisture within it to keep a beautiful glow. Also, aging being a non-reversible ongoing process, the skin naturally loses its elasticity anyway and this gives the effect of crows feet around the eyes, age spots and wrinkles.

The effects are far more noticeable when the skin has been in the sun for long periods. So you will especially notice these age-related effects on the face, the neck, the top of the forearms and the back of the hands. The basic rule is that skin that is exposed to the sun ages quicker.

As far as wrinkles are concerned, there are basically two kinds. The first are fine surface lines and the second are deep furrows.

Wrinkles: What Causes Them?

As we get older, the skin naturally becomes thinner and it becomes more difficult for moisture to reach the epidermis. This thinning-out effect of the skin occurs because the skin loses collagen and elastin as it ages.

Once the epidermis begins to sag and the subcutaneous fat layer of the skin begins to disappear, which previously gave the skin the fleshy appearance, then wrinkles begin to appear.

The wrinkling effect is accelerated by a number of factors, some of which include the following:

  • Drinking alcohol and smoking
  • Having a light-colored skin, since it is more prone to sun damage
  • Natural heredity
  • Wearing too little clothing in the sun (the less sun exposure the better)
  • Having a profession that means you spend a lot of time outdoors

Treatments For Wrinkles

Treatments for the symptoms of aging, especially for tackling wrinkles, are big business these days. It’s a billion-dollar industry because there are so many people who are affected by them and want to rid themselves of them. But there is some good news – and that is that it is possible to keep the wrinkles at bay through early treatment and prevention.

The type of treatment that is most effective for wrinkles depends on a number of factors which include the age of the person, where the wrinkles are located and the tolerance of the person involved towards any side effects from the treatment.

Here are some wrinkle treatments that you may wish to consider:

Avoid the sun – The easiest and simplest way to avoid wrinkles is just to stay out of the sun. If you need to go into the sun then use a sunscreen. A cream with a sun protection factor of more than 15 will block out harmful ultraviolet radiation from affecting your skin.

Moisturize and keep hydrated – Keep your skin moist especially during months when the air is drier. Drinking plenty of water will naturally help to keep your skin hydrated.

Use a cream – There is the option of using anti-wrinkle and anti-aging creams, moisturizers, and cellulite creams. These are now easily available over-the-counter.

Have cosmetic surgery – These could take the forms of Botox injections or chemical peels or numerous other beauty-enhancing procedures. If you are going down this road, be sure to only use the services of a competent professional. Don’t try and do this yourself.

Get skin regeneration treatment – This low-energy treatment can effectively reduce the appearance of wrinkles or other superficial skin problems by stimulating new skin growth in a particular area.

Anti-Wrinkle Creams: Do They Actually Work?

It is only natural for skin to erode with age so it would be unrealistic for anyone to expect any wrinkle treatment to last forever. You must choose wisely for the right treatment, or combination of treatments, for your own particular case. You might even decide to seek advice from a professional or even a skincare surgeon.

Most anti-wrinkle creams resupply the skin with collagen and induce skin cell regeneration with a potent mix of vitamins and antioxidants. If you regularly massage one of these anti-aging creams into your skin, you will probably find that your skin tissue will tighten and thereby increase blood circulation to that area.

This will benefit the skin greatly and enhance the beauty of it. But it’s important to still have expectations that are realistic about creams of this kind.

Homemade Remedies For Wrinkles

As an alternative to all these medical treatments and creams, you might like to try some of your own homemade anti-aging cream or homemade wrinkle cream.

Try out some of these:

  • Take a ripe banana, mash it up, and apply it to your face. With regular use, this should tighten your skin.
  • Giving yourself facial treatments is also effective against wrinkles. This is because when you massage your face, you are also increasing the blood circulation to the area and this causes a tightening of the muscles and tissues in your face.
  • Another effective remedy is creating a mixture containing punctured capsules of Vitamin E, plain yogurt, honey, and lemon juice. Apply this to your face and leave it for 10 minutes. Then rinse it off.
  • Lemon juice applied a few times a day to age spots can make them fainter.
  • Another home remedy for skin aging and removing wrinkles is to mix a turmeric paste with sugarcane juice. Again, apply it to your face and see how it benefits your skin.
  • Yet another home remedy method for preventing wrinkles is to apply pure and odorless Castor Oil.
