Egg whites for wrinkle treatment. It is no miracle treatment by any means, but even for small results, it seems so…simple. Egg whites are just one of the popular home treatments for the prevention of wrinkles and better skin in general. Egg whites are not only good for your body with high levels of protein and low levels of fat, they are good for your skin. When you are young, they can actually reduce oils and an oily complexion. As you age, egg whites can be applied to your skin and left like a face mask, which will allow your skin to absorb essential nutrients often found in eggs.
Another remedy some suggest is massage. By massaging your own facial skin on a daily basis, and maybe even twice a day just as you get ready in the morning and get ready for bed at night, it gets the blood flowing and therefore gets essential nutrients flowing more easily throughout your skin instead of getting stuck in one or two spots and letting your skin dry out, thin out, and age.
You can also apply lemon juice to your skin on an occasional basis. It is packed with antioxidants and can work as an antibacterial. To some this sounds like a good treatment for acne. But if you are looking to prevent aging, it can also kill some of the free radicals that would attack your skin, reduce collagen production, reduce peptide production, and in short decrease your skin’s ability to regenerate itself.
Finally, give yourself a regular exfoliating facial. By exfoliating your skin on a regular basis you are allowing it to breathe. You are getting rid of dead skin cells that may be clogging pores and therefore preventing unsightly scars that could occur and stay for ages. You are also stimulating the flow of blood throughout your body. The more oxygen your skin gets, the better it can function, producing collagen, producing elastin, producing peptides, regenerating itself, basically performing all the basic functions that allow it to stay young and effectively protect the rest of your body from outside elements such as harmful UV rays.
Are home remedies the next botox? No. They are mostly preventative, and they can only do so much. But by taking care of your skin early, not only do you reduce the need for more invasive procedures, but these home remedies are a lot more affordable, even over years of use.
