To maintain the beauty and youth of facial skin, it is not at all necessary to buy expensive creams and masks. Rejuvenation with folk remedies does not give the worst results and sometimes their effectiveness exceeds even the modern cosmetics of popular brands.
And before you rejuvenate your face with folk remedies, you should familiarize yourself with some rules for their use, which will help you avoid skin problems in the future.
Basic rules of home rejuvenation
Folk recipes for rejuvenation are effective only if applied correctly.
The word "correct" means that the following rules are met:
- All ingredients used must be fresh. Otherwise, inflammation and skin irritation await you.
- Use ready-made home remedies immediately after preparation. The maximum lifespan is 3 hours.
- Before applying the prepared product, wash your face thoroughly with antibacterial soap. The active ingredients of the prepared product penetrate almost immediately into the skin through the pores and "collect along the way" what is on the surface of the skin. If it contains dirt, its microparticles will penetrate the skin. The result is redness, inflammation, acne.
- Do not use metal kitchen utensils when preparing the mask. After contact with metal and exposure to oxygen, the products begin to oxidize rapidly and deteriorate, thus reducing the service life of the prepared mask and reducing its effectiveness.
These are the simple rules that require you to follow folk remedies for skin rejuvenation. Now that you know how to use grandma's beauty techniques, let's talk about how to prepare them.
Recipes for anti-aging masks
Traditional methods of facial rejuvenation do not require strong financial costs. Masks are made from a variety of ingredients found in every home. So let's get started.
First grandmother's wrinkle recipe, which I would like to say, helps increase skin tone, hydration and whitening. And this is the usual sour cream. And the thicker it is, the better. If you have cream at home, you can also use it.
These dairy products contain a huge amount of vitamins, minerals and fatty acids, which are essential for the skin to prevent aging. The sour cream or cream can be used on its own. They should be taken out of the refrigerator and placed on the table for at least half an hour to warm up to room temperature. After that, the sour cream should be applied to the skin for about 25-40 minutes. Next, the remnants of the maxi must be removed with a cotton swab dipped in warm milk.
Another recipe for rejuvenating grandma's face that deserves respect. This is the application of aloe leaves with honey. The fleshy leaves of aloe contain substances that help regenerate the skin and increase collagen synthesis. And honey relieves inflammation and has an antiseptic effect on the skin. But before you start preparing a mask from these ingredients, you need to prepare the aloe leaves in advance.
They should be wrapped in an impermeable cloth and refrigerated for 10-14 days. They can then be used. The leaves may turn slightly black, there is nothing to worry about. Just cut out the parts that are dark. Squeeze the juice from aloe leaves and mix it with honey in equal proportions. Apply the resulting mixture on the face for 15 minutes and after the remnants of the mask, rinse with warm chamomile broth.
Multi-ingredient masks for facial rejuvenation
There are multi-ingredient beauty recipes for grandma that are also very effective.
For example, a refreshing mask consisting of:
- aloe leaf juice - 1 tsp;
- raw egg yolk (if skin is oily, use protein);
- oil solutions A and E - literally ½ teaspoon each.
- fresh lemon juice - 1 teaspoon;
- honey - 1 tsp?
- pharmacy glycerin - 1 teaspoon
All these ingredients should be mixed well and the resulting mixture should be applied to the skin for about 15-20 minutes. You can rinse the mask with clean warm water.
Another equally effective grandmother recipe for wrinkles requires the use of the following ingredients:
- olive oil?
- egg yolk? wheat flour.
Oatmeal is used to make flour. For these purposes, you can use a coffee grinder. Mix the oatmeal with 2 tbsp. large. cream. Allow the resulting mass to stand for a while so that it swells slightly. After that, you can add egg yolk and 1 tbsp. large. olive oil. If the mass is thick enough, you do not need to add wheat flour to it. If you get it wet, add the flour to it "by eye". The consistency of the mask should be similar to sour cream.
The resulting mixture should be applied to the skin of the face and left to act for 30 minutes. After that, the mask can be rinsed with warm milk or clean water.
There are other recipes for making anti-aging masks. Everything is fine in its own way, but only effective if used regularly and for a long time. Remember that folk remedies for facial rejuvenation work gradually, but give lasting results.
