Deep wrinkles come from a variety of factors, not just age. Premature aging comes from free radical damage in the environment, poor diet and especially improper skin care. Natural treatments are an efficient way to treat deep wrinkles and add needed moisture to the skin because natural ingredients are free of chemicals and preservatives.
Olive Oil and Vitamin E Oil
Olive oil combined with pure vitamin E oil is an effective night moisturizing treatment for deep wrinkles. Olive oil is moisturizing because it contains oleic acid. Oleic acid makes skin more permeable, allowing it to hold moisture and plump for a younger and smoother appearance. Vitamin E oil repairs skin damage and boosts cell regeneration and collagen production to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and prevent new ones from forming.
To make the olive oil and vitamin E night treatment for deep wrinkles, combine 1/4 tsp. of olive oil with 1/4 tsp. of pure vitamin E oil. Massage onto a clean face before bed and allow to soak overnight. Your skin will feel soft in the morning and take on a smoother, more youthful appearance over time.
Avocados are full of vitamins that nourish the skin and help to prevent and repair deep wrinkles. Two vitamins that avocados are rich in are vitamins A and E. Vitamin A regulates sebum production to increase moisture in the skin, while vitamin E repairs skin damage and produces collagen for a smooth face. Avocados also have more natural oils than any other fruit, enabling them to add needed moisture to wrinkled skin.
Make an avocado facial mask by mashing 1/4 of an avocado until it becomes a creamy paste. Apply the avocado mask to the skin for 25 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. This is an effective moisture treatment for deep wrinkles.
Whole plain yogurt is commonly used as a skin moisture treatment and a deep wrinkle treatment. Yogurt contains lactic acid and alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates skin while smoothing wrinkles. It also contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal factors to remove leftover bacteria that dry skin can leave behind in the pores. Whole yogurt also moisturizes the skin while exfoliating and reducing deep wrinkles.
Smooth a thick layer of whole plain yogurt over a clean face and allow to soak into the skin for 25 minutes. Rinse the mask off with lukewarm water.
