Stress, pollution and a bad lifestyle are the causes which lead to early appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face. Wrinkles on the forehead are a common problem that women above 40 start complaining about.
As we age our skin loses its natural moisture, elasticity and youthful glow. Dry and patchy skin, bigger pores, laugh lines and wrinkles on the forehead become apparent to change the facial appearance. In the following some natural methods of reducing wrinkles have been enumerated.
Massage with olive and coconut oil
Coconut and olive oil are both very thick and they help in softening the skin. Wrinkles appear mainly due to lack of elasticity and moisture. Massaging your skin for ten minutes with warm olive oil and coconut oil will help in better blood circulation and make the skin suppler. Always massage with upward and outward strokes.
Massage with citrus fruits
The citrus fruits like lemon and orange are rich with vitamin E and C which are necessary for healthy and glowing skin. A facial pack with skin of citrus fruits or massaging the face with citrus fruit pulps can help in reducing the fine lines and wrinkles.
Sun dry the skin of oranges and mix with milk and gram flour to apply on your face. Use little bit of warm water for rubbing it off gently when the pack is half dried. Apply orange juice and vitamin E on the affected areas afterwards.
Change your lifestyle
Bring some positive changes in your lifestyle before it is too late. Start keeping fresh fruits and vegetables n your diet, maintain a normal body weight, exercise regularly, quit or at least reduce smoking and drinking. Make sure that your body is getting sufficient amounts of vitamins A, B3, C and E. Frown less and smile more to bid good bye to stress. Meditation and breathing exercises will help in keeping stress under control.
Egg whites are particularly good for reducing forehead wrinkles. Mix the egg white with some glycerin in a bowl and then apply it on your forehead. When the pack dries after 10 minutes then wash it off using cold water. Egg white is a rich source of vitamin E which can revitalize the skin and prevent it from sagging. You can also use Aloe Vera gel mixed with egg white if your skin has become too dry and flakey.
For healthy and wrinkle free skin, one must change bad lifestyle habits and take care of the skin using natural remedies everyday. Massage with olive oil, soothing Aloe Vera gel and nurturing face masks can help a great deal.
