Aging is a natural process that, although dreaded, we can’t avoid. However, What we can do is combat it by incorporating natural products to reduce fine lines, discoloration, and sunspots. Ditch the toxic chemicals in botox, the hazardous chemical peels, and wrinkle creams, and prosper with mother nature’s ways!
Here are 3 natural remedies that we recommend you to include in your daily skin care routine:
1. Vitamin E
Skincare experts swear to apply topical Vitamin E in your skincare routine biweekly. Vitamin E is a natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, with studies also suggesting that Vitamin E can reverse harmful damage as a result of UV exposure. The consistency of 100% Vitamin E is thick, so for optimal results, it is recommended to be applied overnight for maximum potency. The proper routine is to cleanse the face with lukewarm water and pat dry, followed by adding 3-4 drops of Vitamin E serum and spreading the product all over the face and waiting at least 20 minutes before laying down.
2. Aloe Vera
Aloe Vera is utilized in skincare in two ways, topically and as a supplement. Aloe Vera contains strong molecules called Sterols, which help the skin retain moisture, produce collagen, and minimize wrinkles. Studies have proven that even over a mere 8 week period, taking aloe vera supplements ranging from 1200 mg- 3600 mg significantly improved facial wrinkling. When applied topically daily after cleansing the face and neck, aloe vera reduces dryness and redness.
3. Green Tea
Green Tea is truly one of the seven wonders of the world due to itdetoxing properties, antioxidants, and vitamins. Applying green tea extract topically was proven in studies to improve moisture and prevent non-melanoma skin cancer by improving DNA repair. Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) is the primary polyphenolic compound featured in green tea and provides micro-repairing effects. The naturally present caffeine can also reduce puffiness, redness, and facial swelling.
