Wrinkles are one of the most telling signs of aging, and once they are there, there’s almost nothing you can do to get rid of them.
As you age, the skin around your eyes is more prone to wrinkles because it is thin and delicate. Exposure to ultraviolet light, smoking and exaggerated facial expression also contribute to the formation of wrinkles.
To combat wrinkles before they appear and reduce their appearance once they’re there, make this simple cream.
The recipe below is hypoallergenic but should be patch-tested on the back of your hand before use.
Wrinkles appear when cells divide more slowly as the upper layer of skin starts to thin. This skin is more prone to damage and injuries.
Also, the deeper layers begin to loosen and the sebaceous glands shrink, making your skin dryer and dryer. Dry skin makes wrinkles more obvious, so keeping your skin moisturized will improve its overall appearance.
Apply this cream an hour before bed for best results and apply a light moisturizer in the morning to keep your skin at its best.
- 2 blisters of vitamin E
- 2 drops of thyme essential oil
- 1 spoonful of organic coconut oil
You should add ingredients in a small bowl and combine. Then, transfer to a small container with a lid and store in your refrigerator.
To use, use your fingertips to apply a bit of cream under your eyes and lightly massage onto wrinkles before going to bed.
