EXCLUSIVE: Say goodbye to wrinkles: DIY anti-aging remedies from Shahnaz Husain
Generally speaking, at the age of fifty, the tell-tale signs of aging become visible, such as fine lines and wrinkles, loss of elasticity and resilience of the skin, etc. Heredity also plays a role in determining how quickly you get older, but I think it’s regular, preventative skin care that goes a long way in delaying the signs of aging. Our diet and lifestyle also play an important role.
How do wrinkles form on the skin? Skin cells dry out and lose their ability to retain moisture. This can happen due to the usual drought and lack of moisture. The skin loses moisture to the atmosphere, which must be replaced. Exposure to the sun also results in moisture loss. Dryness becomes apparent on the outer layer of the skin, which develops fine lines. With age and decreased oil production, dryness and dehydration are aggravated. Another important change that occurs is a loss of elasticity and resilience. Thus, the stage is set for wrinkles, fine lines and skin aging. Dry skin is more vulnerable to the premature manifestations of skin aging.
Dermatologists and cosmetologists agree that well-groomed skin stays younger for longer. It is also true that neglected skin develops symptoms of premature aging. A regular skincare routine, depending on the type of skin and the problems, helps delay the signs of aging. Additionally, when physical and seasonal changes occur, the skin care routine should be adjusted as needed.
From the age of thirty, start protecting the skin from drying out. Your daily routine should place more emphasis on moisturizing the skin and preventing moisture loss. Start protecting the skin from factors that cause dryness like exposure to the sun, air conditioning, chemical air pollutants, makeup products, etc. A suitable sunscreen, accompanied by a moisturizer, should be used during the day, 20 minutes before going out.
Somewhere in the living cell is the fascinating mystery of the aging process. Until we find the key to it, I believe that proper external care is an important way to preserve youthful skin and delay the visible signs of aging.
There are many anti-aging ingredients readily available at home:
Green tea is a powerful antioxidant. Take half a cup of water and 2 teaspoons of green tea. Bring the water to a boil. Put the tea leaves in a ceramic bowl. Pour hot water over it and set aside 2 minutes. Filter and cool the liquid. Apply to the face with a cotton pad to tone the skin. Leave on.
For an anti-aging mask that also brings radiance, take half a teaspoon of wheat germ oil and 2 drops of geranium oil. Add 2 teaspoons of oatmeal, a teaspoon of almond flour and orange juice. The pack is rich in antioxidants and vitamin E, with powerful anti-aging benefits.
Hands begin to show neglect and aging earlier than most other parts of the body. Take 2 tablespoons of sunflower oil and 3 tablespoons of coarse sugar. Mix until it becomes a paste. Apply and rub on the skin of the hands. Rinse after 15 minutes.
Professional salon treatments and specialty products go a long way in rejuvenating the skin and preserving its youthful properties, leaving it looking soft, smooth, resilient and youthful. Many ingredients, like plant stem cells, have powerful anti-aging properties. Helena Rubinstein once said: “The skin has a tremendous capacity for self-rejuvenation if it is well cared for and it is never too late to start. Indeed, with the skin, you have a major asset… ..it will respond to the right care.
