1. Avocado and honey mask
Who knew avocado was such a powerhouse? Few fruits have the benefits and vitamins that help nourish skin and body as avocados do. Thanks to their excess of vitamins D and E, studies have shown that avocados can do wonders for those tiny lines and wrinkles appearing on your face.
Avocados stimulate the production of collagen and smooth out wrinkles that show on your skin’s surface. And when combined with honey, you can create a cream that nourishes skin and gives it back its natural elasticity. How is it done? Mix the meat of one avocado with a tablespoon of honey until smooth. Apply to your face evenly and let set for 20 minutes. Rinse with cool water. Try this treatment twice a week.
2. Carrots and egg whites
So why egg whites? Egg whites can help “lift” skin, making it firm. It’s the perfect remedy for the area of your eyes. You can combine the egg whites of a single egg with carrot paste. You’ll not only get the benefits of egg whites but the vitamins of carrots which help the elasticity of your skin, help tone and eradicate fine lines. You’ll see immediate effects.
Why not give it a try? Blend two carrots to extract their juice. Don’t add any water. Instead add egg whites. Add this mixture to your face. Let it set for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water.
3. Aloe vera
You’ve probably heard aloe vera praised before. It’s curative, helps reduce the appearance of scars, can firm skin, cleanse and detox, meaning it’s an excellent additive to your health and beauty routine. In the case of fine lines and wrinkles, you can use it to treat those tiny lines found around your eyes.
It doesn’t take much – just a couple stems from an aloe plant whose gel you apply around the outside of your eyes. Apply carefully a thin layer around the area of your eyes. Let it set for 20 minutes and rinse with cool water. Try this remedy three times a week for best results.
Surprised? Don’t be. Cocoa makes an excellent addition to your beauty routine. It’s cheap, easy to get your hands on and is highly effective. It’s secret lies in the cocoa’s components: landline, a substance that helps hydrate your skin thus reducing the appearance of wrinkles. To get the best results, mix 100 grams of pure cocoa powder with a tablespoon of olive oil or face cream.
Mix until you have a paste and apply as you would a regular face mask. Let it set for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse with cool water. Try this three times a week to give your skin a boost of hydration.
5. Castor oil
Such a well-known treatment that’s been used for generations can’t be wrong. Castor oil makes a great treatment for your wrinkles and fine lines.

Let it set for 15 minutes and rinse in cool water. Follow up with a face cream that is rich in hydrating components. You’ll find the results are supreme.
