Resurrecting Anti Aging Natural Beauty Secrets

Centuries ago, before the time of big-ticket surgeries and pricey cosmetic products, women took care of their skin and defied aging by using concoctions containing anti aging natural ingredients. Today, despite the deluge of synthetic beauty products in the market, a growing number of people, men included, are going back to the old ways of maintaining a youthful appearance using products of natural ingredients. Organic has now become the buzzword. Some even take the time to prepare the beauty products themselves. These preparations do not cost much and can easily be made at the comforts of your home. Why not try one of these recipes?

Anti Aging Natural Facial Mask Made of Honey

Pure honey has gained popularity among health buffs for its numerous health benefits. It is credited for the beautiful Greek complexion. Honey is rich in antioxidants and provides anti microbial benefits. It helps in keeping skin moisturized, good enough to replace commercialized moisturizers. You can also use it to blot up acne and other skin blemishes on the face and protect skin from the detrimental effects of exposure to sunlight.

To make this anti aging natural facial mask, you will need these ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup blueberries

In a bowl, mix honey, yogurt and blueberries. Apply on your face and let the mask stay for 10 to 15 minutes. Thoroughly rinse your face with warm water, followed by cool water to close the pores.

Anti Aging Natural Facial Mask Made of Olive Oil

If you would rather strut the exquisite Italian skin tone instead of the beautiful Greek complexion, consider olive oil as a main ingredient to your anti aging natural face mask. For ages, Italian women have been using olive oil to fight wrinkles and fine lines by luxuriating in a bath with this natural ingredient. Today, olive oil is a popular component in many homemade concoctions, including olive oil scrub, olive oil moisturizer and olive oil cosmetics. But in this discussion, let us learn how to make olive oil facial mask.

You need to prepare:

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of cooked oatmeal
  • ½ cup milk

To make the mask, simply mix milk and olive oil to the cooked oatmeal. Let the blend cool for some time, then daub your face, neck and upper chest. After 20 minutes of letting it sit on your face, rinse it well with warm water. To close the pores, follow it with cool water.

You can make as many kinds of anti aging natural facial masks as there are age defying natural ingredients. You do not have to look far. Go! Rummage through your kitchen to find these ingredients.
