Ooooh don't we all dread wrinkles?!
The aging process is something we all frown upon & wish we could stop! Keep in mind that there are a number of factors that contribute to wrinkles, some of which you can avoid.

According to MedicineNet.com:

Factors that promote wrinkling include:
  • Smoking
  • Light skin type (people with blue eyes and easily burned skin are more prone to sun damage)
  • Heredity (some families wrinkle more)
  • Hairstyle (some styles provide cover and protection against sun damage)
  • Dress (hats, long sleeves, etc.)
  • Occupational and recreational habits (farming, sailing, golfing, using tanning booths, and so forth)
Some of these factors are beyond our control. The main preventive measures we can take are to minimize sun exposure and not smoke.

If you research wrinkle prevention you'll find so many EXPENSIVE creams and/or cosmetic procedures. Personally I couldn't imagine spending thousands of dollars on a cosmetic procedures/spa treatments! There are natural ways (that won't break your pockets) to reduce wrinkles.

Here's a recipe for you to try:
The following recipe will smooth away any wrinkles and moisten dry skin on your face using natural ingredients.

*Recipe below is enough for 1 treatment

  • 1 egg
  • 4 fl oz/115ml coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey

Place the egg in a small bowl and beat it thoroughly. Slowly add the honey and coconut oil, beating until the mixture is about the same consistency as mayonnaise. Take a left over empty toilet roll and place plastic wrap over one end to hold the mixture in. Hold it upright over the bowl and spoon the mixture into it. Place the roll in the freezer.

To use, peel away some of the cardboard and rub the frozen stick over your face and leave for 5-10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water. This mixture will keep for several months in your freezer if after use you cover the used end with some more plastic wrap and return it to the freezer.
