Wrinkle Creams and other Treatments that You can Use at Home

By Jen Hopkins

You don't have to buy wrinkle creams in stores just to be able to look younger. You can make your own creams right at your own home with just some simple ingredients. Some advantages of making your own cream is that you can choose which ingredients you would like to include and modify the properties of your cream. This is also a good way to spend you time if you have lots of free time on your hands.

There are a lot of sample recipes that you can look at over the internet. You will usually need ingredients that will serve as emollients, preservatives, thickeners, emulsifiers and essential oils that you will use for your cream. The oils are usually the ones that will give you the anti-aging effects that you desire.

A sample recipe that you can use would include beeswax, jojoba oil, rose water, borax and other essential oils. Beeswax acts as your emollient while borax is your preservative. The other ingredients have the anti-wrinkle effects which will help you look younger.

If you don't want to spend time in making your own cream, you can also use substances such as coconut oil by themselves. Coconut oil is used by gently massaging it on the areas with wrinkles. Doing this everyday will help moisturize the skin and make it firmer thus eventually getting rid of these wrinkles.

Aside from oils, you can also use fruits to help make your face look younger. A very common fruit that is used is banana. You can mash of a banana until it attains a creamy texture and apply it on your face for a few minutes everyday. This can help get rid of wrinkles and make the skin feel smoother.

Another common substance that many people have tried using is honey. This is used as a facial mask once a week to help get rid of blemishes on the face. This is used by first placing a warm towel over the face to open up the pores. The honey will then be applied and left on the face for about 20 minutes before washing it off.

Some people have also used egg whites combined with cucumber and lemon extracts. Cucumber extract will help relax and refresh the skin while lemon helps in exfoliating the skin to expose the younger and blemish free layer of the skin. Egg white serves as the carrier which also has some moisturizing effects. The only problem with using egg whites is that it can have a certain smell that some people do not like.

With all of these homemade recipes and substances that you can use to eliminate wrinkles and improve the face, you won't have to buy wrinkle creams just to be able to look younger. You can use your spare time to prepare your own wrinkle cream, especially if you have an excess of ingredients lying around at your home.
