The best wrinkle remedies, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, are those that focus on preventing wrinkles in the first place. So regardless what sort of wrinkle-removal remedy you choose, take the following steps as well: try to avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., when the sun’s rays are most direct, always use sunscreen with an SFP of at least 30, wear a hat and lighten up on soap use while increasing the amount of rinsing you do. Soap residue left on the face can contribute to drying and wrinkled looking skin. Consider adding olive oil to your diet by regularly eating salad greens dressed with olive oil and lemon since olive oil offers skin benefits to those who consume it as well as those who apply it topically, GrannyMed.com suggests.

Olive Oil

Step 1

Boil 6-8 cups of water. Pour the hot water into a large bowl. Bend over near the bowl and drape a towel over your head to create a steam tent. Wait five to 15 minutes as you allow your face to steam.

Step 2

Massage a small amount of olive oil onto damp facial skin. Apply the oil using long sweeping movements from the chin up onto the rest of the face.

Step 3

Work the oil in gently but firmly, taking care to avoid your eyes. Move your fingertips in a circular motion on the skin of your forehead, temples, and down the sides of your face and back up again.

Step 4

Place one finger on the skin on each side of your nose. Move your fingers in circles in that spot and then move outward about half an inch and repeat the circular motion. Continue moving outward and repeating this motion until you reach your ear lobes.

Cucumber

Step 1

Grate one large cucumber. Put the shredded cucumber in a strainer and set it over a bowl to drain.

Step 2

Allow the cucumber juice to drip into the bowl, pressing with your fingers to remove more of the liquid.

Step 3

Use a cotton ball to swab your face with the cucumber juice. Let it sit on your face for at least 30 minutes and then rinse well.

Step 4

Repeat this procedure daily. Within a few days you should be able to see results, according to the Home Remedies Guide.

Egg Whites

Step 1

Separate one egg and beat the white until frothy.

Step 2

Apply the foamy egg white to your face using your fingers. Leave the egg white on for at least 30 minutes or overnight--if you can sleep on your back.

Step 3

Rinse your face with cool water to reveal smooth, soft, tightened skin.
