Ageing brings with it many changes, such as loss of elasticity, dry skin and skin tags – however there are some simple home remedies which can help gracefully age without much difficulty.
Vitamin C: Lemons contain abundant amounts of vitamin C and have bleaching properties which make them an ideal way to tackle freckles and age spots. Apply fresh lemon juice directly onto the affected areas every day for optimal results.
Olive Oil: Many are aware of the anti-ageing benefits of olive oil, such as its ability to increase collagen in skin tissue while acting as a moisturizer.
Honey: Honey’s soothing and moisturizing properties make it an excellent way to treat various skin disorders, including dermatitis, psoriasis, acne and other injuries and infections. Plus it can soften dry skin and decrease wrinkles.
Fruit Enzymes: Bromelain (found in pineapple), papain (from papaya), and ficain (found in figs) can help remove dead skin cells while improving texture of skin. Try using an enzyme-infused face wash or mask twice weekly to get maximum benefit.
Natural Oils: By incorporating natural oils such as jojoba, coconut or shea butter into daily skin care practices and through exposure to UV rays, natural oils such as these can help restore the protective barrier that may have been compromised due to frequent handwashing with soap and water and UV exposure.
Make time for a diet packed with antioxidants and vitamins like fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts and seeds as well as omega-3 fatty acids that will support skin health from within. Doing so can prevent premature ageing.
