Each age has its own advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand, the years fall on our balance in the form of experience and wisdom, and on the other hand, our appearance undergoes certain changes. One of the side effects of age-related changes is skin laxity. But it turns out that there are ways to help preserve assets of wisdom while still tightening your skin at home.
1- Avocados and nuts
Vitamin E, which these foods are rich in, literally works wonders. It helps the body produce wrinkle-smoothing collagen. As an additional means for smoothing the skin (more important for the face), cosmetologists advise preparing a mask from avocado and olive oil.
2- Oatmeal, honey and egg white
Another very effective anti-age mask for face, neck and décolleté. The easiest way to prepare it is by adding all the necessary ingredients to a blender. It is imperative to apply along the massage lines and leave for 20-30 minutes. Then rinse with warm water and at the end for greater effect rinse with cold.
3- Massage with olive oil
Olive oil has long taken a firm place on the dressing tables of many Italians, including quite famous ones. If you make it a habit to do body and face massage with its use daily at night, then in a week you will be pleasantly surprised with the result.
4- Oranges and broccoli
These foods are rich in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, as well as other vitamins that produce collagen in the body.
5- Egg whites
Regular egg white applied to the skin moisturizes and nourishes it. Therefore, all cosmetologists unanimously advise using it as an anti-aging ingredient. Just beat it to a white foam, apply to problem areas and leave for half an hour, then rinse with cool water. For a faster result, you can even apply this mask twice a day.
Lemon juice is also applied directly to the skin. This not only tightens the skin, but also lightens the age spots that appear. You can carry out this procedure daily, leaving lemon juice on the skin for 10 minutes. Then rinse with cold water.
7- Tomato juice
Tomato juice masks, or rather, massage of problem areas with it, can be performed for the whole body (yes, from head to toe)! It is not for nothing that Korean cosmetics manufacturers love it so much and constantly include it as an active ingredient in various skin care products. The secret of its natural use is simple: rub the juice into the skin for 5 minutes and leave for an hour until it dries completely. During this time, the skin will absorb all the beneficial substances. Then you can wash and take a shower.
8- Aloe Vera and Cucumber
Since the loss of moisture, desiccation greatly affects the appearance of the skin, it is extremely important to “watered” it. For this, masks made from cucumbers or aloe juice are ideal. Also, many top models practice the consumption of life-giving cocktails from aloe vera inside. The simplest version of this cocktail includes plant gel (1 tablespoon) and lemon juice (1 tablespoon). These ingredients should be combined with a glass of water and drunk in the morning on an empty stomach. After that, you can not eat or drink anything for 1 hour.
Banana masks, possessing a huge supply of nutrients, become the ideal medicine for aging skin. There are a lot of recipes for masks using bananas. But even ordinary banana gruel applied to the skin for 15 minutes will noticeably improve its color, tone and turgor.
