Homemade Wrinkle Remover

by Greyson Ferguson

There are dozens, if not hundreds of different wrinkle creams available on the market today, most of which are made up of similar products, almost all of which can be found in your kitchen. So instead of purchasing expensive creams from your local store, why not make your own homemade wrinkle remover?

Ingredients

Avocado is one of the most used products when it comes to skin care. The oil in the avocado is good for replenishing damaged skin, as well as all the antioxidants found in the fruit. Along with the avocado, you will need almond oil. Like the avocado, oil extract from almonds is exceptional when it comes to replenishing your skin. If you do not have either ingredient you can purchase both from any local super market.

Creating Your Homemade Wrinkle Cream

Now that you have your ingredients, it is time to put together your homemade wrinkle cream. Start off by slicing the avocado into equal sections. Once this has been done, take three of these sections and mix them together with five drops of almond oil. This should be enough for one application of your face cream. Crush these thoroughly together and you will have a paste based substance. Your wrinkle cream is now ready to be used.

Application

Take your cream and apply it lightly around your face, especially in locations where wrinkles are heavier in appearance than others (such as around the eyes). Allow the cream to sit on your face for about five minutes, then remove with warm water. Allow your skin to dry and do not apply more until the following day. Wait to make sure you do not see any irritation from the cream (you shouldn't but it is better to be cautious). After a few days of using the cream, you can begin to thicken up your application. To do this simply double the amount of avocado and almond oil you use to create your homemade wrinkle cream. Refrigerating the cream will allow it to stay fresh for about a week. However, if left out over night you will need to throw it away because the avocado will begin to spore bacteria which will cause damage to your skin.
