Anti-aging care for the home
What factors make the skin age?
Our skin aging is influenced by three essential components:
Our genes, over which we have no control
The individual lifestyle
Environmental factors, such as excessive exposure to the sun, accelerate skin aging, promote the formation of free radicals and promote the breakdown of collagen. A moisturizing day cream with a sun protection factor will help prevent wrinkles. Getting enough sleep is important for skin that looks fresh longer. We recommend seven to eight hours a night, because our skin regenerates and recovers during these hours. In addition, while we sleep, the production of interleukins (messenger substances of the cells of the immune system) is stimulated and growth hormones are released. Stress and lack of sleep make the skin look old and wrinkled very quickly.
Healthy lifestyle to prevent wrinkles
In addition to regular exercise, a healthy diet is also important. Many healthy foods contain antioxidants that neutralize free radicals. They are aggressive oxygen compounds that attack our cells and cause wrinkled, gray skin. Antioxidants are found in foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, and fish. A sufficient fluid intake of at least 2 liters is also necessary to prevent wrinkles. Tip: avoid sugary drinks.
The best anti-aging home remedies:
Lemon as an anti-aging agent
Lemons mainly contain acid - these should ensure that excess skin cells are removed and the skin's recovery (regeneration) is promoted.
Lemon application: Halve a fresh lemon and spread citric acid on your skin. Please note that this procedure should only be repeated twice a week - otherwise there is a risk that your skin will dry out, after all, it is acid. You should also make sure that you have no open wounds on the face and hands.
Quark as an anti-aging agent
Quark is said to be anti-inflammatory. Quark also contains a lot of milk protein, which is supposed to promote cell renewal and skin regeneration. Quark is also said to strengthen the protective layer against acid within the skin, which in turn leads to increased resistance.
Use curd: Take a small cup of curd cheese and mix half of it with a little oil. Apply, leave to take effect and remove from the skin with warm water.
Almonds as an anti-aging agent
Almonds are very valuable, they contain vitamin E, Fibres, Oleic acid, folic acid, Calcium and Zinc. This combination of nutrients is said to slow down the aging process of the skin. Even inside and outside!
Use of almonds: As food or as a face mask - mix ground almonds with warm milk (water is also possible) and mix with a little honey to a mass. Apply the paste to your skin, massage in and leave on for about 15 minutes, then wash off with warm water.
Does Aloe Vera Help Wrinkles?
It is not without reason that aloe vera is represented in various beauty products. The green sticks contain secondary plant substances that prevent cell damage. Aloe vera helps the skin to regenerate. The miracle plant cannot prevent wrinkles, but at least noticeably delay them. The application is very easy: You simply cut off a leaf from a fresh plant and apply the gel from the inside to the skin. Then you leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes. Then you rinse it off with lukewarm water. You can find the plant on the Internet or in selected department stores.
