For some women aging can be a fearful process, especially when we are in an age where keeping your youth and looking youthful is idolized.
Signs of aging occur or appears mostly on the face or areas that were excessively exposed to the sun.  One major sign of aging are wrinkles.  Wrinkles include fine lines, deep furrow and surface lines.
As we get older our skin becomes less elastic, thinner and dryer. Wrinkles are something we cannot prevent, but may be able to prolong from happening. Not including the natural aging process, other causes of wrinkles includes:
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet
  • Unbalanced hormones
  • Lack of exercise
  • Lack of fluids

Anti-aging or anti-wrinkle products are the most expensive products that are on the market. People will pay hundreds or thousands just to stay or look youthful.  Most of these products that are on the market mostly contain a lot of chemicals and un-natural ingredients.  We all know that our bodies respond and reacts better with ingredients that are natural. So why not give our bodies what it likes?

There are several different types of D.I.Ys  anti-wrinkle or anti-aging serums that you can make yourselves.  These D.I.Ys serums contains all natural ingredients. The ones that I have listed below are ones that have worked well with my skin.

For an Eye Firming Serum:
1 tbl raw shea butter (melted)
2 tbl evening prime rose oil
¼ tbl vitamin e oil
1 tbl of rosehip oil
Mix and store in a cool place away from sunlight.

For a Facial Serum:
¼ tbl coconut oil
¼ tbl avocado oil
¼ tbl vitamin e oil
1 tbl glycerin
¼ tsp ascorbic acid (powered vitamin c) - add a little water and make sure the power is completely dissolved before mixing with the other ingredients.
Mixed well and store in a dry cool place.

*Please note that everyone’s skin is different and its best to talk to your physician before trying anything new*
