An increasing number of women are now resorting to home remedies to get wrinkle-free skin. Wrinkles were once thought to be an indication of advancing age. However, it is no longer surprising if they begin to show while you are in your mid-twenties. Skin damage, resulting in wrinkles, is frequently caused by a hectic lifestyle, stress, lack of sleep, lack of a skincare routine, and a poor diet.

You may not want to go under the knife or have botox treatments that are popular among celebrities, while at the same time, you would want to get rid of the fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. That is when natural and safe home remedies can come to your rescue. The solutions are low-cost and straightforward to implement. And the best news is that these home treatments for wrinkles have few to no adverse effects. So, both the younger generation and the elderly can benefit from these techniques to make their skin look healthier and younger.

But, before we get into the remedies, let us look at what wrinkles are and why they occur. Continue reading to learn more!

What Are Wrinkles?

Wrinkles are also known as rhytides. They are creases in the skin that become pronounced with aging as the skin loses its natural elasticity.

Now that you know what wrinkles are, let us explore the different types of wrinkles in the next section.

Types Of Wrinkles

  • Dynamic Wrinkles

These wrinkles are caused by the repeated contraction of muscles attached to the overlying skin. They form in areas where facial muscles are active, such as the forehead and around the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet).

  • Static Wrinkles

These wrinkles are formed due to gradual loss of elastin and collagen fibers due to aging and sun exposure.

  • Wrinkle Folds

These wrinkles occur when facial structures start to sag, creating deep grooves. They are often seen between the nose and mouth.

Now that you know about the different types of wrinkles, let us explore the causes behind wrinkles in the next section.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Fine lines around the eyes, mouth, and on the neck
  • Skin sagging in different areas, especially on the face and neck
  • Loose skin on the hands
  • Deep wrinkles or furrows around the lips and eyes

While certain areas of the face are prone to develop wrinkles, one may not be able to identify them early on to apply the right anti-aging treatment and reduce the chances of their appearance.

There are multiple state-of-the-art algorithms and enhanced techniques currently being used to detect facial wrinkles. The following graph showcases the efficacy of an automated process to detect wrinkles present in various parts of the face. In the future, one may be able to just take a test and learn about the areas they need to focus their anti-aging treatments on.

What Causes Wrinkles on Skin?

As you age, your skin tends to lose its elasticity and moisture. According to Dr. Fred Pescatore, MD, MPH, “Wrinkles are caused as our skin ages and loses hydration and elasticity.” These wrinkles typically appear perpendicular to the underlying muscles. For example, frown lines of the forehead are horizontal, and the underlying frontalis muscle is a vertically oriented muscle. The elastin and collagen fibers start to degrade, and as we age, we lose our ability to repair the collagen fibers. The lack of these two factors is the prime reason for the birth of wrinkles. There are many other reasons for these wrinkles to occur before time or be more pronounced. They are as listed below:

  • Pollution
  • Extensive exposure to the sun
  • Lack of vitamin D3
  • Excessive use of cosmetics
  • Constant changing of creams and cosmetics
  • Smoking (1, 2)

Areas Of The Skin Prone To Wrinkle Formation

The skin on the face is the most sensitive and thin when compared to the rest of the body. Hence, wrinkles on the face are quite common. Wrinkles around the eyes, on the forehead, and laugh lines or wrinkles around the mouth are very common. Neck wrinkles are also seen where the skin also tends to start sagging with age. Wrinkles on the chest, hands, and feet also develop in time.

The home remedies listed in this article have been tried and tested by people across the globe. The ingredients in each remedy contain potent compounds that will reduce wrinkles and also make your skin healthy. Include these remedies in your regular skincare routine to get rid of wrinkles and prevent them in the future as well. Dr. Pescatore adds, “Certain antioxidants have been shown to help counter the effects of aging and can be added to your daily routine in the form of natural supplements.”

Apart from these remedies, certain lifestyle changes need to be made to prevent premature aging and wrinkles. Here are a few simple tips you can follow.

Other Tips To Fight Wrinkles

1. Sleep

Nothing can be more effective to ease out those fine lines appearing on the skin. As you sleep, the body goes into the restoration mode and, at the same time, secretes the human growth hormone (HGH). HGH plays a quintessential role in keeping your skin more elastic and less prone to wrinkles. If your body is deprived of rest, it results in an increase in the production of cortisol, which breaks down the skin cells, triggering wrinkle formation. Make sure you sleep on your back. Sleeping on your sides can cause wrinkles on that side to increase.

2. De-stress

Lighten up, for stress can have adverse effects on your beauty. Stress, along with anxiety and tension, could make your skin thin and weaker and prone to wrinkles. Exercise daily or indulge in recreational activities so that stress does not get to you. Think about all the good things in your life – and smile. A smile aids stress management and helps banish those wrinkles.

Life often springs unexpected situations at you. You need to learn the technique of keeping calm, no matter how challenging or adverse the situation may be. Stay relaxed all the time, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

3. Drink And Rinse

On an average, an adult is advised to drink at least 1 to 2 liters of water in a day. However, studies indicate that you should drink 5 to 6 liters of water in a day to keep your organs healthy. Drinking ample amount of water helps your body flush out toxic waste. A clean inside reflects on the body outside.

4. Trim Those Bangs

Trimming those bangs if you are over 25 is a sure way to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles on your forehead. A quick trim will round up your face, accentuate your features, and reduce wrinkles. Try it! We are not kidding you on this one.

5. The Sun – The Ultimate Villain

Yes, the sun is the most crucial factor that contributes to the generation of wrinkles. The harmful UV rays of the sun are extremely damaging for the skin and deplete it of its natural moisture. The weakened collagen fails to protect the skin from further damage. The risk of skin cancer also increases if you step out in the sun every day without any sun protection. So, do not forget to use an umbrella or a hat the next time you step out.

6. Scarf Up

Non-radical issues, such as pollution, affect your skin the most. Use a scarf if you have to step out for long hours to protect your face from exposure to dust and pollution. Cleanse your skin with a mild face wash replenished with antioxidants for dirt, grime, and wrinkle-free skin.

7. Soak In SPF

As mentioned above, extensive exposure to the sun damages the skin beyond repairable levels. Studies suggest that while vitamin D is a blessing to the skin, exposing yourself to the ultraviolet-rich sun rays for a long time does more harm than good. It accelerates skin aging, resulting in the early onset of wrinkles.

Be liberal while using sunscreen. Opt for a sunscreen that has high SPF. Also, choose a product that is water-based and does not contain harmful chemicals. Apply it even during cloudy days. Apply it at least 15 minutes before your tryst with the sun, and reapply every 4 to 6 hours.

8. Quit Smoking And Alcohol

Apart from being hazardous to your health, smoking can also cause wrinkles. The carcinogens in cigarettes act as a toxic plastic bag around your pretty face, blocking and depriving it of oxygen. This exaggerates the pace with which wrinkles appear on your skin. So, say goodbye to smoking.

It may sound stereotyped, yet, you should quit alcohol as soon as you can. If you are unable to resist alcohol completely, you should set a limit on the intake.

9. It Can Be The Genes Sometimes

Strange, but true. Wrinkles can be the result of several genetic factors. In some families, people look aged in their mid-40s. On the contrary, in another family, the members might look young even in their 70s. Therefore, you should consider the genetic factor as far as wrinkles are concerned.

Wrinkles are a natural effect of skin aging, as with a reduction in collagen production, the skin loses its elasticity and develops lines and creases. However, environmental toxins, sun damage, pollutants, stress, lack of D3, smoking, and poor diet have made wrinkles an increasingly common issue among the younger generations. Fine lines, deep furrows, and loose skin are the common signs of wrinkles. Home remedies for wrinkles are the alternative to surgeries or treatments like botox if you want to get rid of them. Natural oils such as coconut oil, castor oil, argan oil, jojoba oil and sesame oil along with essential oils such as tea tree oil and lavender oil keep your skin nourished. Further, preparing facial masks with natural ingredients like grape seed extract, carrot juice, onion juice, apricot, apple cider vinegar, honey, egg white, yogurt, glycerin, chamomile, witch hazel, calendula, marigold, pomegranate, radish seed, papaya, orange, banana, almond, etc., are effective in helping remove wrinkles from the face and neck.

This translates to plenty of fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and minerals.
• Consuming foods rich in vitamin A can take you one step closer to your dream skin. Fruits such as papaya, vegetables such as spinach, roots such as carrots, beans such as soybeans, and fish are great sources of vitamin A. This wonder vitamin will retard the aging of your skin and keep you looking young for years.
