(NaturalNews) Wrinkles are a bane of the natural aging process. They are thin creases or lines that form in the skin, primarily on the face and neck. Wrinkles result from a gradual decrease in the skin's collagen levels as you age, which causes it to lose its elasticity. Wrinkles may also form pre-maturely, as a result of poor diet, stress and sudden loss of weight. You can use natural remedies to prevent and get rid of wrinkles.

Milk and Honey Cleanser
Milk and honey is an age-old, anti-wrinkle cleanser that dates back to the ancient pharaohs. Modern science now supports the efficacy of this remedy: milk is rich in lactic acid, a type of alpha hydroxy acid that deep cleanses the pores, sloughs off debris from the skin and stimulates the secretion of collagen. Honey is rich in humectant compounds, which promote the absorption and retention of moisture into the skin. This helps to keep the skin hydrated and increases its elasticity.

Combine one tablespoon of honey with half a tablespoon of organic raw certified whole milk. Massage this into your skin and leave it on for ten minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.

Lemon Juice and Sugar Exfoliator
Lemon juice is rich in citric acid, a naturally-occurring, organic acid with strong exfoliating properties that help to get rid of wrinkles. Exfoliating your skin sloughs off dead cells from the outer layer of the skin, revealing soft, supple skin underneath. It is also rich in vitamin C, which is essential in the production of collagen. Sugar contains glycolic acid, which is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that helps to repair skin damage and to remove dead skin cells.

Stir one teaspoon of sugar into two tablespoons of lemon juice, mixing thoroughly. Gently massage the solution into your skin using your fingertips, taking care to avoid your eye area. After ten minutes, rinse it off with cool water.

Egg White Mask
Egg whites are a temporary but popular remedy for getting rid of wrinkles naturally. Egg white has astringent properties that temporarily tightens pores and firms the skin, helping to diminish the appearance of wrinkles. To use this remedy, separate the egg whites from two organic eggs and whip them until peaks form. Apply this to the face, leaving it on for about 20 minutes. Wash it off with cool water.

Lemon Balm Rinse
Lemon balm is a natural astringent that helps to keep your skin taut and firm. Make a lemon balm rinse by steeping a handful of lemon balm in two cups of boiling water. Let it cool and then use it as a facial rinse each morning.

Take Your Vitamins
Vitamins are a simple but effective natural anti-wrinkle remedy that not only helps to get rid of wrinkles, but also promotes healthy, younger-looking skin tone. B-complex vitamins, in particular, have potent antioxidant properties and can be obtained from dietary sources such as organic meat, eggs and whole wheat. Vitamins A, C and E are also natural anti-oxidants for the skin, and they can be obtained from green leafy vegetables and fresh fruit.

Most Effective Remedies to Get Rid of Wrinkles

Creases don’t look good on anything- neither on your clothes nor on your face! Yes I am talking about those unsightly wrinkles that give you nightmares. They are on your face, neck, hands or any other place due to your skin’s lost elasticity and moisture. And why have you lost these prominent things? There may be various reasons like aging, pollution, sun exposure, smoking, certain drugs, drastic weight loss or deficiency of certain nutrients or other components in your body. You may either single out the cause for your wrinkles (which is a tough task, I must say!) or change some of your dietary and lifestyle habits to prevent further wrinkles as well as getting rid of those which are already present there on your skin. Various home remedies do come to your assistance to reverse the process of wrinkling.
Most Effective Home Remedies for Wrinkles

If you have recently noticed those fines lines on your face or have been struggling to get rid of them since long back, there are certain home remedies that can remove wrinkles more effectively than others. Here I will give you such natural remedies for wrinkles that will sure make you get rid of your ugly fine lines. The first of them is your food habits!
Diet Remedies for Wrinkles

Wrinkles are visible on your ‘outer’ body but most of the times their cause lies ‘within’ your body. You must pamper your skin with various essential foods that keep your skin working to make collagen- the thing which grants elasticity to your skin. So, here are your food remedies for wrinkle less skin.
1. Drink Plenty of Water

Water is not food but I am including it in the category of diet because this is perhaps the most effective as well as most simple remedy for wrinkles. Water is one of the basic necessities of our body that we tend to ignore. Drinking water will not only avoid and treat wrinkles but will keep you healthy in general. Plenty of water keeps your skin hydrated. Remember, one of the reasons for wrinkle formation is loss of moisture! So, drink water, plenty of it. Now what’s plenty is subjective. On normal days when you do not work heavily, 6 to 8 glasses of water is sufficient but when you work hard, play a lot, go to gym, or do any other work that drains out water from your body, drink even more water. Check to keep your water filtered and safe. Chemicals and dissolved ingredients in hard water may even be more dangerous for your skin. If you are having healthy beverages during the day like fruit and vegetable juices (not colas and sodas), they can also be counted as intake of water.
2. Have Foods with Wrinkle Fighting Elements

And what are such elements of food? I’ll tell you. They are antioxidants, omega-3 fatty acids, trace minerals like selenium and copper, high-quality protein, plant compounds such as isoflavones, retinol- one of the forms of vitamin A, iron, vitamin E and C, mono-unsaturated fat etc. Here’s the list of foods from which you may get all these substances.

3. Sleep Sufficient and Sleep Right

Why? You just need to know this- When you sleep, your body produces human growth hormone (HGH) which controls the growth of all body tissues including skin. And if you don’t sleep enough, your body releases cortisol which is a stress hormone responsible for slowing down the growth and even damaging tissues. You sure need new skin cells to fight off and prevent wrinkles and you also need to prevent any damage to your body tissues so that you do not get further wrinkles. So, just don’t neglect your body’s need of sleeping.

While sleeping enough is important, sleeping in the right posture too is important otherwise you may get wrinkles that are known as sleep lines. These lines are formed on the surface of your skin and do not go away even when you get up. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says that sleeping on your side may form wrinkles on cheeks and chin. Don’t sleep face down too otherwise you’ll get a furrowed brow. The best position is to sleep on your back.
4. Don’t Stress

Easier said than done! But then, getting rid of wrinkles too is not an easy task. You need to get rid of your stress because it makes your skin thin and weak which cannot fight with the elements that produce wrinkles. Also when you frown or scowl, they only help to make your temporary facial lines permenanet. Do whatever will de-stress you. Here are some suggestions.

5. Don’t Smoke; Don’t Smoke Passively Too

Again a tough task for smokers. For non smokers too and for none of their mistakes. Smoke produces free radicals. Free radicals lead to body’s molecular instability which in turn weakens and kills body cells by damaging their membrane. As a result, collagen production in body is affected. Collagen, if you remember, is the element which gives elasticity to your skin. Lack of elasticity in skin means wrinkles. So, if you smoke, stop smoking. If you don’t smoke but are surrounded by people who smoke, try to convince them not to smoke at all. If you are unable to do so, ask them not to smoke near you. If that is also not possible, get up and go somewhere else till the time your friend or partner finishes smoking. Just avoid any environment where there is tobacco smoke.

6. Protect Skin from Harmful Sunrays

Exposure to the ultraviolet rays of sun can damage your skin’s collagen leading to wrinkles. The best thing would be to not go out when the sun shines at its best. However, that’s not always possible. So, the choice limits here to protecting yourself. Here are some ways to protect yourself and your skin from these harsh sun rays.

Use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 whenever going out in sun. Better if you can use a broad-spectrum sunscreen having an SPF of 25 to 30. It is effective in protecting you against UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. Enhanced sunscreens containing vitamin E or soy isoflavones can also shield and strengthen your skin barrier by assisting in reproducing collagen.
Take along accessories like hats, scarves, umbrella. When you are out for longer, you should re-apply your sunscreen and if that’s not possible, use anything that will block sun-rays from penetrating your skin.
Wear sunglasses to avoid eye wrinkles when going out in the sun. Eyes are sensitive and so is the skin around them. Strong sunrays make you squint which also leads to wrinkle formation around eyes. So prevent these fine lines, invest some money on quality sunglasses. Cheaper brands can damage your invaluable eyes!

Top Remedies to Remove Acne Scars

Who likes scars and that too on face! Getting rid of acne scars is a little tougher than eliminating acne actually. Pimples can be naturally treated with many ingredients having anti-inflammatory or antibacterial properties which are in abundance in nature. However, pimple scars are a little stubborn as they doesn’t go easily. However, as the saying goes, nothing is impossible. It may take some time but your regular efforts using certain natural bleaching agents as well as other ingredients may lighten your acne scars and gradually remove them permanently.
Prevention is better than cure…

Before I go on to share some really beneficial home remedies to remove acne scars naturally, I want to share some words of wisdom. There are certain things that you should avoid in order to prevent forming scars at the first place. It’s not essential to have scars even if you get pimples!
Don’t play with your acne

Yes, keep your hands off your acnes! Don’t play with them, don’t pick them or squeeze them, just leave them alone when you are not applying any remedy on them. Whatever you are doing to remove pimples, do it with gentle hands. Why? I’ll tell you.

When you get acne, there is intense inflammation on your facial skin and there is loss of collagen. Collagen is the protein fiber, one of the components of skin which gives skin its elasticity. When you pick or squeeze your pimples, it leads to further inflammation and injury to your skin. It also leads the bacteria and pus in your pimple go deep down into your skin resulting in more loss of collagen which means even deeper scars on your face.
Don’t expose scars to sun

Your body is capable of taking care of your scars and they will get lighter with time. However, if you expose them to sun, their healing process will slow down and the scars will get darker. So, avoid sun. If it’s essential to go out in sun, use sunscreen to guard your skin and also cover yourself with hat, umbrella, clothes- whatever you can lay hands on.
Natural remedies to Remove Pimple/Acne Scars

There are various natural ingredients that you can apply on scars to remove scars from your face.
Lemon Juice for Acne Scars

Lemon is a natural bleach. Vitamin C in lemon helps in rebuilding collagen. When you use lime juice on your acne scars, the spots get lighter day by day.

Lemon juice is an excellent skin lightening agent. It is the acid in lemon juice that helps brighten your skin and make the scars less visible. It can, in fact, fade away freckles and lighten the dark scars faster. Not only scars, if you have swollen pimples, lemon juice can help reduce its redness too. And it is probably the most easily available ingredient lying there in your fridge. So, you just need to get it from there and squeeze out some of its fresh juice to apply to your acne scar, everyday! However, just do not step out in sun after applying lemon juice to your skin. It makes your skin sensitive to sun’s rays. Even hours after when you step out of your home, do not forget to apply sunscreen to shield your skin.
How to use lemon Juice for acne scars

Take a fresh lemon and squeeze out its juice. Apply this juice directly on your scars with finger tips or a cotton ball, leave it for ten minutes and wash it off with water. Do this once a day for two to three weeks during which you can see your scars diminish considerably. If you want, you can also mix honey with your lemon juice to make it some more effective in reducing the acne scars.
If your skin is very sensitive, diliute lemon juice by mixing some rose water and then apply on your scars.
You can even mix a teaspoon of lemon juice with two teaspoons of Vitamin E oil and then apply this to your acne scars. Vitamin E is a very good emollient with a lots of antioxidants that protects and even improves your skin texture.
