Wrinkles occur naturally on everyone at some point in their lives. Wrinkles form around the forehead and eyes due to the following factors:
- Repetitive facial expressions such as laughing, frowning and smiling
- Sun damage
The most common areas where wrinkles form first and fast are the forehead and around the eyes.
The good news is that there are several options for eliminating eye and forehead wrinkles.
The options entail natural home remedies and medical treatment
You may opt to use a combination of treatment options in order to achieve the best results fast.
The key to these treatment options is consistency.
One of the most common cosmetic procedures in the medical industry is botox. Botox is a neurotoxic protein that is injected into the body to stop nerve activity. The result of this is that muscles relax temporarily. Botox is used cosmetically to smooth out wrinkles and prevent the formation of new wrinkles. Of notable interest is that botox is a temporary solution and hence the procedure is repeated every four to six months for best results. The cost of the procedure ranges between $175 to $500. As such, it is a viable anti-wrinkle option for people who can easily afford it.
Wrinkles form when the skin produces minimal to no collagen, which is necessary for keeping a youthful skin. Vitamin C is famed for its ability to help the skin produce more collagen. You may opt to use Vitamin C capsules, anti-wrinkle products containing Vitamin C, or natural foods that are rich in Vitamin C. The foods include oranges, lemons, papaya, strawberries, and pineapples. Juice one of the mentioned fruits and rub the juice on your forehead and around your eyes. Be careful not to get any of the juice into your eyes since that will cause a terrible sting. Let the juice sit on your skin for 15 to 20 minutes before washing it off.You may repeat this procedure twice a day or once at night before you sleep.
Coconut oil is a magical beauty product bestowed upon us by Mother Nature. Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants that are ideal for combating wrinkles. Hydration is a key factor for fighting and preventing wrinkles. On that note, coconut oil helps the skin retain moisture and hence reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Wash your face and gently rub the oil on your forehead and around your eyes.
Use this opportunity to massage the skin on the affected area in order to stimulate the muscles. For better results, you may combine the Vitamin C procedure mentioned above then apply the oil after washing off the juice. Conduct the procedure before bedtime in order to activate collagen production and seal in moisture while your skin is at rest.
Proper Skin Care
Proper skin care entails proper hygiene and sun protection. Wash your face at least twice a day and most importantly at night before you sleep. Exfoliation is necessary for removing dead skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Sun protection entails limited exposure to sunlight and wearing sunscreen.
The key to getting rid of these wrinkles is to start early. This way, you will prevent further wrinkle formation and get that youthful skin that you desire.
