Everyone wishes for a flawless skin without any fine lines and wrinkles. So, it’s understandable if you worry about facial wrinkles, since they’re a sign of aging. But it’s high time you do something about them. Although chemical treatment can bring results, it can be harsh on your skin in the long run.
Though aging is a natural process we shouldn’t be afraid of, aging skin has little to offer in terms of beauty. Let’s face it – no one wants his face to be full of wrinkles, fine lines, dark spots and with the loose, sagging skin. Fighting wrinkles doesn’t have to be just a daytime job. You can fight wrinkles all night long by adding an overnight face mask to your beauty routine . Overnight face masks contain vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that promote collagen growth and fight free radicals. These face masks also keep skin hydrated, heal existing wrinkles, and prevent the formation of fine lines.
But, before you reach for some expensive face cream or serum, did you know you can make completely natural homemade anti-aging face masks? These masks are organic, chemical and toxin free solutions for aging skin that can help you restore your skin and retrieve that youthful glow.
Here’s how you can make homemade anti-aging face masks suitable for every skin type:
Natural Anti-aging face mask
Turmeric, Plain yoghurt and Honey mask:
This is a great hydrating and brightening mask that you should try out. Turmeric is especially great when you’re battling hyperpigmentation. It will rejuvenate your skin and clear out dark circles and spots. Yoghurt deeply moisturizes your skin and eases the fine lines and wrinkles due to its anti aging properties. Honey, on the other hand, is also a great moisturizer that will leave you glowing after every ‘spa’ session. This root has awesome anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant and astringent properties; when applied topically, it helps smooth out the skin and fight wrinkles. Turmeric also may help fade acne scars, too. Just be sure to dilute it with other ingredients like oil, as turmeric by itself may stain the skin.
Mix about one spoon of each ingredient and apply the mixture onto a clean face and leave it on for a few minutes before rinsing. Remember that turmeric can stain most things it comes into contact with so you should be careful when handling this mask.
Avocado face mask:
Fighting wrinkles doesn’t have to be just a daytime job. You can fight wrinkles all night long by adding an overnight face mask to your beauty routine . Overnight face masks contain vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that promote collagen growth and fight free radicals. These face masks also keep skin hydrated, heal existing wrinkles, and prevent the formation of fine lines. The mask is rich in antioxidants that fight the effects of aging sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles. Avocado oil is also a great option for natural moisturization and is easily absorbed into the skin. Its benefits stem from its rich, healthy fat content, which works to encourage skin regeneration and may be particularly beneficial to dry, sun-damaged, or sensitive skin. Next time you let an avocado get overripe, peel it open and mash it into some DIY face masks.
Banana face mask:
This simple, one-ingredient overnight face mask provides eight vitamins and minerals to fight the signs of aging and treat stubborn wrinkles. Those vitamins and minerals include A, B, E, and F, as well as magnesium, zinc, iron, and potassium. All you need is a banana, a fork, and a bowl to make this mask work for you.

Papaya face mask:
The mask removes dead skin cells and renews skin. It protects cells from free radical damage and helps retain skin elasticity. The carotenoids in papaya help fight the free radicals that break down collagen and elastin and lead to loose, wrinkled skin . Papaya also contains papain which breaks down inactive proteins and dissolves dead skin cells. This combination of healing and exfoliation can help you achieve the smooth, glowing skin for which you’ve been looking. Here’s the simple recipe.
Mash one-half cup papaya with a fork until you’ve created a pulp. Wash your face and neck with warm water and then apply the papaya mask. Let it dry for fifteen minutes before going to sleep.
