Home Remedies for Wrinkles

We all know that certain wrinkles will confer a little bit of character and distinction. Some may even make you appear sophisticated and worldly. That’s not the case with all wrinkles, though. When people come to our Santa Barbara plastic surgeon, they tend to ask how they can most effectively fight wrinkles and other signs of aging. While getting a Santa Barbara facelift or undergoing a non-surgical aesthetic treatment is a good option, there are some things you can try at home to help reduce those wrinkles.

One thing to consider is keeping your skin moisturized. There are numerous facial creams and lotions on the market. One home remedy to think of it massaging coconut oil into your skin before bed. A similar remedy involves rubbing castor oil onto your skin before bed. One last remedy to consider is rubbing a mixture of honey, olive oil, and cream into your skin each night before bed.

Sun damage can cause your skin to look weathered and leathery, deepening wrinkles and increasing their affect on your appearance. For this reason, it’s a good idea to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun and to wear sunscreen when you are out and about.

Since smoking and drinking alcoholic beverages can have an adverse effect on your appearance, be sure to avoid tobacco products and to not drink to excess.

One last home remedy we’ll mention involves cucumbers. The remedy involves blending cucumbers and then straining out the cucumber juice. Apply the cucumber juice to your skin and let it remain for half an hour before rinsing it off. Not only does this feel soothing, but it can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
