Aging is an inevitable part of our life cycle, along with the effects on our body. One of the most visible effects of aging is on our skin, especially on the face, with the appearance of wrinkles and the deepening laughter lines and crows feet.
So what are wrinkles? As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, and this results in the formation of creases, known as wrinkles. The fine lines around the eyes are called crows feet, and around the mouth form the laughter lines.
Some people age faster than others, especially those more exposed to a polluted environment, excessive smoking and drinking, and leading a sedentary life style.
Let’s look at simple things you can do on a daily basis to keep looking younger for a longer time.
Squeeze the juice of a fresh lime. In 1 tsp of juice, mix 1 tsp of honey. Apply this over the face. Leave it on for half an hour, and wash off with lukewarm water.
Take a fresh coconut, and grate it coarsely. Carefully squeeze out the milk. Apply this over the face, leaving it on for half an hour. Wash off the face with warm water.
Mash a small ripe banana and a two slices of ripe papaya. Apply this thick paste over the face, washing it off after 15 minutes.
As a nightly routine, try the following. In 1-1/2 tlbsp of rosewater, add just 3 drops of glycerine. Mix in the juice of half a small lime. With a cotton ball, apply this over the face. Wash off in the morning.
Make sure you eat a well-balanced diet, always stay well hydrated, and keep looking young.
