Chemical Free Ways to Get Rid of Wrinkles
Here are several great ways to get rid of your wrinkles and fine lines without hurting the environment or your body with such bad chemicals:
Apply Aloe Vera
Aloe vera is one of the best moisturizers found in nature. It’s safe to use and is even cooling (great for hot days). Keeping your skin hydrated is crucial for preventing the appearance of wrinkles. So in addition to drinking enough water each day, you should also use a moisturizer. For those who already have annoying fine lines, an all-natural moisturizer like aloe vera can make the lines appear less severe. Over time, it might even help you get rid of wrinkles and fine lines.
In case your wrinkles are rather severe, you can consider cosmetic surgery. It doesn’t involve chemical peels and whatnot. The results are also more permanent and immediate. There are several procedures you can try depending on your condition. You can look up plastic surgery in Calgary and Edmonton for licensed practitioners for a consultation.
Generally speaking, medical professionals either offer spot treatment or complete lifting. For example, if you have fine lines around your eyes, you can consider a brow lift. You can also consider a full face lift, as seen on facelift-calgary.com, which smooths the whole face. That might be a good option if you are over 50 and have wrinkles in several areas of the face. But you need a comprehensive consultation with a doctor before considering any type of surgical intervention.
Use a Banana Paste Mask
There’s an all-natural answer to those harsh chemical peels usually recommended to get rid of wrinkles: a banana paste mask. It’s easy enough to make at home. Bananas naturally contain lots of vitamins and oils that promote collagen production. Applying banana paste onto the problem area may help boost collagen production. This is a highly safe alternative to chemical peels, which often causes side effects.
Try a Retinoid Cream
Retinol is a form of vitamin A, usually present in foods like carrots. Retinol helps promote the production of collagen that keeps the skin firm. Therefore, retinol-based creams are often prescribed to get rid of wrinkles. However, most retinol creams on the market contain all sorts of chemicals. But now there are natural, plant-based retinol creams that don’t contain synthetic chemicals. This is a great option for those who want to avoid unnecessary chemicals while benefiting from the collagen boosting properties of retinol.
Use Natural Sunscreen
Sunscreen is essential for protecting your skin from the damaging effect of UV rays, which usually means wrinkles and fine lines that appear early. Unfortunately, the mainstream brands of sunscreens are full of chemicals that not only could harm the body, but also harm the environment.
You shouldn’t completely give up on using sunscreen for this reason though. You can still protect yourself with all-natural sunscreens that are eco-friendly and free of synthetic chemicals. There are several upcoming brands for all-natural sunscreens. But you can make it at home using wholesome ingredients like carrot seed oil and Shea butter.
While you apply the above suggestions, don’t forget to eat lots of organic veggies each day. Fruits and vegetables high in vitamins A, beta carotene, and vitamin D promote collagen production and keeps skin safe from damaging environmental elements.
