No one likes wrinkles, but wrinkles are an inevitable part of the natural aging process. As our bodies produce less collagen, elastin, and oil with age, this results in dry, thin, saggy skin. You can reduce wrinkles and fine lines using the seven natural home remedies below.
Seven Natural Home Remedies to Reduce Wrinkles:
1. Change Your Sleep Position:
Do you sleep on the side? That side of your face may actually have more fine lines and wrinkles. Try switching the side you sleep on. Even if you turn over during the night, you will spend less time on that one side.
Try sleeping on your back - this is the best sleeping position to reduce wrinkles. PILLO1 is the perfect cervical pillow to reduce wrinkles naturally, with three unique sleeping surfaces for optimal back and side sleeping.
2. Stay hydrated:
To reduce wrinkles, be sure to drink water throughout the day. Cut back on salt and alcohol to reduce puffiness in the morning. Alcohol disrupts your natural sleep cycles and dehydrates your body. To compensate, your body steals natural fluids from around the eyes, among other places.
3. Foster Joy:
Stress weakens your skin. Lack of sleep releases a stress hormone called cortisol. During a good night's sleep, your body secrets Human Growth Hormone (HGH) that helps maintain growth of skin tissue. Relax at night with a routine beauty regimen. Spend a few minutes reading a good book, watching a funny YouTube video, or enjoying a piece of dark chocolate. A little happiness goes a long way.
4. Sleep cool:
Does your bedding leave you sweaty, tossing and turning? Your bedding should "sleep cool" to ensure your skin is clear and clean at night. Sleeping hot is the #1 complaint from memory foam owners, as memory foam is generally made from crude oil that traps the air between your skin and the foam, not allowing air to circulate properly. Heat generated from the interaction of the memory foam also changes the density, making the foam even less supportive. Alternatively, Dr. Hall's PILLO1 sleep pillow is made of all-natural hypoallergenic non-toxic Talalay Latex, which is 7 times more breathable than memory foam. And by the way, Dr. Hall's new mattress collection JUST SLEEP also has Talalay Latex and an upper layer of highly breathable and "temperature neutral" coconut based foam imported from Italy that is not only pressure relieving and non-toxic, but also helps your body keep cool throughout the night!
5. Tea Time:
White tea has anti-aging potential with high levels of antioxidants. Studies show that white tea prevents the activities of the enzymes which breakdown elastin and collagen that lead to wrinkles.
Ginger tea works as an excellent anti-wrinkle remedy due to its high antioxidant content. Moreover, it helps inhibit the breakdown of elastin, a major cause of wrinkles and fine lines. You can also drink ginger tea twice daily. Or, mix a pinch of grated ginger with a tablespoon of honey. Eat this mixture every morning.
6. Eat Omega 3 Fatty Foods:
Omega 3 fatty acids nourish skin for a plumper and tighter skin. Good sources of omega 3 fatty acids for wrinkle reduction include salmon, tuna, almonds, walnuts, flaxseed and sunflower seeds (and oils). Soy-based foods may also help build collagen.
7. Natural Masks:
Simple natural food products from your kitchen may be used to create soothing masks and facials to reduce wrinkles. Simple anti-aging wrinkle-reduction food products include bananas, lemon juice, coconut oil, carrots, egg whites, cucumbers, and almonds.
