Face peels have been used by women to reduce wrinkles for centuries. You can make your own face peel with ingredients found in your kitchen. Use organic ingredients such as almonds, honey, eggs, milk, fruits and vegetables. You can reduce wrinkles by making your own face peel for a fraction of the cost and the same benefits as the finest spa.

Step 1

Use egg white. A beaten egg white with 1/2 tsp. lime juice tightens your skin and closes pores. Froth the white with a fork, combine with the lime juice, and brush it onto your face. Let it dry for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse it off with a warm washcloth. The egg whites give your skin a fresh glow, help ward off blackheads and prevent wrinkles.

Step 2

Mash a ripe banana until it's creamy. Spread it all over your face and leave it on for15 to 20 minutes. Rinse it off and pat your face dry. Bananas contain antioxidants and minerals that help the skin restore itself and prevent wrinkles. The key ingredients are potassium and other antioxidants that keep the skin looking young and healthy.

Step 3

Cook two carrots until they are tender, then mash. Add 1 tsp. almond oil, mix it well and refrigerate for about an hour. Apply it on your cheeks, eyes and chin for about a half hour. Rise with a warm washcloth. The carrot face peel removes toxins and water buildup in the skin while giving your face a fresher, firmer appearance, and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Step 4

Use grapes. Green grapes are rich in antioxidants that help remove skin impurities. Those antioxidants leave you with softer, smoother skin that's less susceptible to wrinkles. Slit one or two grapes, remove the seeds, and rub the flesh of the grape in a circular motion all over your face. Rinse off with warm water. This mask helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The University of Maryland Medical Center says grape seed extract is healthy for the skin.

Step 5

Puree half of a cucumber, one egg white and 1 tsp. lemon juice. Blend them, apply the mix to the skin and let it dry. Rinse well with warm water. Cucumbers help reduce hyper-pigmentation and fine lines.

Step 6

Use green tea. Green tea contains polyphenols, which help protect skin from sun. Green tea can also soothe, moisturize and tighten your face. The University of Maryland Medical Center's research shows green tea protects skin from aging. Brew a pot of tea and let it cool. Mix 3 tbsp. tea with 3 tbsp. rice flower. (Banana is optional if you want to moisturize your skin at the same time.) Apply this to the face and leave it on for 15 minutes. RInse.
