Alternative Home Remedies to treat Wrinkles

While tons of wrinkle creams, ointments and lotions are produced worldwide, there’s a possibility they do not work as much as we hope for. Marketed hypes such as anti-wrinkle creams or anti-aging serums are classified under cosmetics, line of products to beautify the face and body, not treat signs and symptoms of illnesses. What does this mean to us? Well, for us consumers, it means that it’s not tried and tested for effectiveness since it does not have value scientifically and medically.

Without assurance for effectiveness, these cosmetic products can be considered a wasted expenditure. The same goes to wrinkle treatment since they are very expensive and causes permanent side effects. How do we treat wrinkles without spending so much? Here are some alternative home remedies to treat wrinkles.


Remedies for Wrinkle

  • Home Remedy #1:  Tea / Coffee Scrub

Coffee and Tea are considered as anti-oxidants. Anti-oxidants are responsible for neutralizing free radicals in the skin and preventing cell damage. You can use coffee or tea and scrub it on your face, limbs or legs once a day and leave it for 30 minutes to be absorbed into the skin. Except for coffee, you can also use orange since it contains Vitamin C, another potent anti-oxidant. Some wrinkle cream contain Vitamin C but possibly in small amounts, better use an original source like zesty fruits.

Intake of Coffee, tea or Orange is typically recommended since it promotes cell healing and skin rejuvenation. Remember that you are what you eat.

  • Home Remedy #2: Carrots Shake

Unknowingly, one major component for wrinkle reduction is in our backyard. Carrots are actually rich in Vitamin A derivative specifically called beta-carotene. Make a carrot shake and put some on your skin, scrub it until you see that the water has mostly dried. Rinse of the remnants of the carrot.

Vitamin A is an effective anti-oxidant that fights off wrinkles by strengthening the skin with collagen formation and promoting cell healing within the skin. Carrot intake is a good source of vitamin A as well so be sure to load lots of carrots into your diet. Results will show in a couple of weeks, compared to endless use of wrinkle cream use. Although there’s a wrinkle treatment called “Tretinoin” that is approved by medical standards, it is expectedly very expensive.

  • Home Remedy #3: Load up Tuna and Salmon into your Diet

Notice how skinny people usually look dry and old? That’s because they don’t have the necessary fat to build up the skin surface and the necessary nutrients to strengthen body processes. A good alternative way to reduce wrinkles is to load up fats specifically the Omega-3 oil found in tuna, salmon or other fishes alike. These fishes not only contain Omega-3 but also copper and selenium, potent anti-oxidants to help prevent those fine creases from forming. Copper and selenium are sometimes ingredients used during wrinkle-filling, a wrinkle treatment wherein fillers are usually injected in the wrinkles to make them full. There are risks in these invasive techniques as it might cause irritation, swelling or allergic reaction.

So there you go, remember that you have a choice to choose alternative methods or go or the usual solutions of wrinkle treatment or topical applications. Just remember to weigh the risks before you get the results.
