As people age, their skin loses elasticity and collagen, and this is due to the fact that over time, the body produces less and less of these important substances. When the skin loses elasticity, it becomes more prone to sagging, dryness, wrinkles, and an overall loss of tone. While many individuals seek out expensive cosmetic treatments and procedures to eliminate wrinkles, there are actually a variety of natural remedies that work wonders on fighting facial wrinkles. These remedies are both affordable and effective, and work to nourish the skin with healthy vitamins and antioxidants.


Exfoliation is the first step in regenerating the skin and minimizing wrinkles naturally. Natural exfoliation scrubs work well to remove dry, dead skin cells, as well as encourage healthy circulation and collagen production. It is always bet to use an all-natural scrub that contains healthy ingredients such as apricot seed, pineapple enzyme, natural sugar or sea salt. These ingredients are gentle and effective, and work well to lightly slough off the dead skin and encourage new cell production, while introducing healthy minerals into the skin. Once you have exfoliated, lightly coat the skin with grape seed oil or Vitamin E oil. It is best to use a slightly diluted version of Vitamin E oil, as it can become quite sticky at higher quantities. By applying the oil immediately following exfoliation, the skin will lock in deep moisture and promote healthy collagen production, resulting in minimized wrinkles and a healthy glow.

All-Natural Wrinkle Creams

Moisture is the key to healthy and youthful skin, and daily moisturizing with an all-natural wrinkle cream will help your skin lock in moisture as well as encourage healthy skin cell turnover. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally produced by the body that helps to keep the joints fluid and the skin soft, supple, and elastic. Fortunately, there are a variety of wrinkle creams that contain hyaluronic acid, and these natural creams work well to replenish the lost hyaluronic acid and boost collagen. Additional anti-wrinkle ingredients to look for in a wrinkle cream include Vitamin E, Vitamin C, collagen protein, Retinol, and shea butter. Vitamin E works well to lock in moisture and deeply hydrate the skin, and Vitamin C provides a healthy burst of antioxidants, encouraging healthy skin cell turnover. Collagen protein binds with the natural collagen in the skin and encourages collagen production, and Retinol works as a gentle exfoliant. Shea butter is highly emollient, and works to both hydrate and protect the skin.

In Conclusion

Wrinkles are a natural part of life, and everyone ages. While these are simple facts of life, the good news is that you can definitely age gracefully and defeat wrinkles and sagging with all-natural treatments that work wonders on the skin. Starting off with a weekly exfoliation will boost the skin's natural collagen production and circulation, and treating the skin with Vitamin E oil and grape seed oil will help to lock in moisture, plump up wrinkles, and protect the skin. Finally, using an all-natural wrinkle cream day and night will soften fine lines and improve the skin's tone and elasticity. While there are a variety of surgical procedures that claim to remove wrinkles and tighten up the skin, the unfortunate reality of many cosmetic procedures is that they can cause uncomfortable side effects, and if a procedure is botched in any way, it can cause permanent damage. Taking the natural route is always advised, as natural ingredients are naturally designed to heal and nourish the skin. By following some simple skin care tips, you can effectively treat your wrinkles and prevent new wrinkles from developing.
