How to Get Rid of Wrinkles Naturally

by Gale Felberbaum

Smooth skin can be a sign of health, vitality, and youth. Many people try different ways to keep their skin wrinkle-free as they age. Wrinkles can develop on your skin due to age, exposure to ultraviolet light, smoking, and repeated facial gestures such as smiling or squinting. [1] Although there are many anti-wrinkle creams, serums, and supplements available, you may prefer natural ways to get rid of your wrinkles. You can do this by keeping your skin moist, encouraging firmer skin with lifestyle choices, and preventing wrinkles from forming in the first place.

1. Drink plenty of water.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. This can flush your body of toxins and promote healthy, glowing skin. The moisture can also plump up your skin and temporarily fill wrinkled areas.

  • Count beverages such as fruit juice, tea, coffee, or flavored waters as part of your daily total.
  • Add a slice of lemon to your water to brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

2. Slather on a natural moisturizer.

Apply a few drops of a natural product or oil, such as olive or coconut oil, to your body or facial skin twice a day. This can help maintain moisture and plump up the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Some natural moisturizers include:

  • Olive oil
  • Hemp oil (found in your local beauty store)
  • Rose oil
  • Castor oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Shea butter
  • Aloe vera

3. Use essential oils that can provide additional antioxidants.

You can add a few drops of the essential oils into your moisturizing oil to take advantage of their nutrients. Several oils have a high concentration of antioxidants that can help your skin fight free radicals, which slows the signs of aging. However, you should always dilute the oils with a carrier oil. These essential oils provide the most benefits:

    • Lavender
    • Thyme
    • Clove
    • Eucalyptus
    • Cinnamon
    • Juniper
    • Basil
    • Chamomile
    • Coriander
    • Cumin

4. Select different oils for oily and combination skin.

Even people with oily and combination skin need moisturizer for their skin. This can help you get rid of wrinkles and may even reduce redness and shine. Choose lighter natural oils to moisturize oily skin, such as:

  • Argan oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Grapeseed oil
  • Hemp seed oil

5. Choose a face mask to pamper your skin.

Whip up a face mask with foods you probably have around the house. Infuse your skin with vitamins and nutrients in eggs, avocados, and cucumbers. They may erase or reduce any wrinkles you have. Adding a few splashes of lemon juice to your mask may further plump your skin and make it glow. Mix together the any of the following masks and leave on your selection for 15 minutes before rinsing them off with warm water:

  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of honey with 1 tablespoon (about 7 g) of ground flax meal and .5 cups (120 ml) of plain Greek yogurt
  • 4 tablespoons (59 ml) of lemon and half a cup (45 g) of uncooked rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of lukewarm water, 1 apricot, and ½ of a banana
  • 2 tablespoons (30 ml) oat- or wheat grass juice, ½ an avocado, and .5 cups (120 ml) yogurt
  • 1 egg white, 1 teaspoon (4.9 ml) of fresh lemon juice, and .5 teaspoons (2.5 ml) of honey
