How to get rid of wrinkles without botox.
Age is fast becoming everyone’s new biggest fear and botox seems the best solution but is there are way to get rid of wrinkles without botox? Once thought to bring us experience, knowledge and sophistication it now looms over us like a dark cloud, ready to rain on our parade. It approaches with time limits, responsibilities and the dreaded… wrinkles. Our ‘smile lines’ reflect a life lived to the full but can leave us looking tired and spent when we’re not feeling our best. Idolised women who have not yet hit 40 grace the media with stretched, motionless faces after reaching for the botox needle. Such exposes leave us with little hope of alternative methods to botox, yet there are ways to get that youthful complexion without the paralysed forehead. Let’s look at some methods which can be followed until we enter senior home care.
- Castor oil
Applying Castor oil to your face can work wonders for wrinkles. It includes Vitamin E and Omega 3 and 9 fatty acids which all hydrate the skin. The best oil is organic, cold pressed and hexane free. Many consumers believe it to be better value for money than expensive high-street brands! Apply every morning and night to reap the benefits.
A mini massage for your face, this method increases blood flow to the skin, providing it with more oxygen and smoothing out fine lines that appear. Small, circular motion around the acupressure points is best. It helps to relieve stress hence preventing further wrinkles brought on by such tension.
- Sun Exposure
If you want to avoid looking like a worn, leather armchair, the least you can do for your skin is keep sun-bathing to a minimum. UV light contained in sunlight is harmful to our skin and has been said to account for 80% of our wrinkles. Overexposure can lead to skin pigmentation and reduced elasticity. Sun worshippers, beware.
Water really is the key to everything; life, hydration and a supple face. Drinking at least 2 litres per day will help keep you hydrated as the body consists of over 60% water. It helps to flush out the toxins in our body that lead to imperfections and can keep our skin plump, elastic and wrinkle-free!
