Skin health is very vital and plays a prominent role in maintaining youth. The symptoms of deteriorating skin health gradually develop, persist and continue to proliferate and eventually result in weak, dry and aging skin. Some specific proteins, fats and oils help make skin soft, firm and supple and maintain proper contour of the skin.
Apart from aging, there are several other factors that cause depletion of all the cells that produce fats, collagen, elastic and thus skin weakens, sags, and then wrinkles become explicitly noticeable. Though wrinkles are inevitable, yet they can be delayed or prevented by adopting the following natural and proven home remedies.
Home Remedies For Eye Wrinkles
Protect Your Skin
The environment in which you are living plays a vital role in maintaining your skin health. Drastic weather changes, constant variation in temperatures, excessive exposure to sunlight, chemicals and allergens and pollutants damage your skin profoundly.
These unusual weather conditions are responsible for the production of free radicals that damage elastic, collagen and fatty cells of your skin. Therefore, to protect your skin from all these unusual effects, you must avoid allergens, dust, excessive sunlight and chemicals by adopting comfort methods.
Increase Antioxidants Intake
Free radicals breakdown the healthy skin cells and reduce the production of collagen, elastic and fatty tissue – all these are important for proper skin texture, contour, firmness and suppleness of the skin. Antioxidants neutralize the effects of free radicals by supplying electrons to modify them.
Luckily, they are available in the food you eat. The most prominent antioxidants include vitamin C, D, E and A; all these are available in the dark-colored fruits and vegetables you eat. The advantage of having such fruits and vegetables is that apart from providing antioxidants, the pigments present in them like anthocyanins and carotenoids offer the color to the skin which it deserves the most.
Take Omega 3 Fatty Acids
Being the key components of cell membranes, fatty acids provide smooth appearance, contour and texture to the skin by nourishing skin cells and helping in retaining moisture within the cells that help tone up the skin cells.
The beneficial fatty acids like omega 3 fatty acids are abundant in fish – salmon, tuna. Even the vegetable sources like flaxseed, almonds, walnuts and sunflower oil are also rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
Apply Coconut Oil
Coconut oil is helpful in both ways: topical application and consumption. The presence of some peculiar fatty acids like caprylic acids makes coconut oil special as these fatty acids helps in proper absorption of vital vitamins, and minerals like copper and selenium – the most beneficial elements for the skin cells.
Similarly, topical application of coconut oil onto the surface of skin makes it supple, moist and vibrant with proper contour, elasticity and strength.
Use Cucumber Slices
Cucumber slices with its natural soothing abilities provide instant moisture and agility to the skin cells by quickly making its way through the skin layer and therefore frequent use of cucumber on and around the skin of eyes reduces wrinkles and puffiness of the eyes. The skin surrounding your eyes becomes exuberant and firm with cucumber.
Drink Green Tea
Tea is a powerhouse of antioxidants owing to the presence of catechins, epicatechins, epigallactocatechins and other antioxidants. All these compounds are abundant in almost all varieties of tea, but they are usually abundant in green tea, which undergoes least oxidation processing during fermentation.
Therefore, green tea with abundant catechins and epicatechins stops the biochemical reactions that break the collagen and elastic of skin by acting as a powerful antioxidant.
Ensure Good Sleep
Proper rest and sleep is essential not only for overall health but also for the skin’s health. Throughout the day, skin cells undergo enormous wear and tear, apart from your body cells. Therefore, body cells, along with the skin cells need proper restoration, regeneration and maintenance.
Moreover, during resting period and sleep, your body secretes human growth hormones. These growth hormones restores, maintains and build healthy cells and tissues including skin cells as well. If you don’t get proper sleep, your body produces unhealthy corticosteroids and stress hormones that deteriorate your cells and tissues. In order to improve the levels of good hormones (HGG), proper sleep is a must for you.
Augment Your Happiness
Stress, emotional distress, worry, panic fear and other such emotional conditions not only make you physically weak, but also make you psychologically weak and decreases your immunity, well-being and happiness. In addition to showing its effects on different body parts, stress deteriorates your skin health as well by making it weak, saggy, vague and dry.
When you are stressed most of the time you have disturbed facial expressions like frowns, wrinkles and scowls on your face and such expressions over a period of time make your skin faint, dry, saggy and wrinkled. Therefore, anxious, aggressive composure can worsen your skin health. The only solution to look out for in such situations is to adopt some distressing strategies like laughing, exercise, indulgence in hobby, and making yourself busy with some activity you love the most.
Use Flax Seed Oil
Flaxseed oil is very natural and it is good for digestion as well. Therefore, you can take one tablespoonful of flaxseed oil twice daily up to a few weeks to notice encouraging results for your wrinkled skin.
If you are unsure or feel a bit sensitive to this dosage, then you can slightly reduce the dose initially and then gradually increase the dose once you are comfortable with it.
Use Olive Oil
Olive oil is really amazing due to the abundance of monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamin E, anti-inflammatory compounds (oleocanthal), and anti-oxidants. The monounsaturated fatty acids provide the much needed fatty acids to the skin cells.
Olive oil has been in use to treat wrinkles since ancient times owing to its skin friendly composition. You can directly apply it to the skin around your eyes by gently massaging the skin surface for better penetration. For better results, steam your face to make your facial skin conducive for the treatment and then apply olive oil to the damp skin of your face.
Use Vitamin E
Vitamin E is naturally very good for your skin and your hair and particularly for women it is a miraculous vitamin. If you think your skin is dry, rough and lacks the appropriate texture and contour, you can take supplementary vitamin E or consume almonds daily, which are the rich source of vitamin E.
Similarly, you can also apply vitamin E oil directly to the wrinkled regions of your skin, especially around the eyes before going to bed.
