When you are young, you do not think about about getting wrinkles. But then you have your kiddos and work your job and live your life. And you look in the mirror one day and you discover you have some crows feet and some laugh lines. Keep reading to find out some natural solutions for wrinkles.
We are mostly going to talk about essential oils for combatting those wrinkles. But there are a couple other natural solutions that we will also discuss. Let’s get into it.
Frankincense Is A Must
Frankincense is one of the best natural solutions for wrinkles. It is a very old essential oil (I mean, it was brought to Jesus when he was born). And it is also very versatile and can be used in so many ways. Go here to see my post on using for kidney stones.
But it is really really helpful for wrinkles. You can either put directly on the wrinkles. Or you can mix with your favorite moisturizer (this will be discussed later). And then you could put the frankincense and moisturizer all over your face. And prevent some wrinkles from starting.
I mix the frankincense in my moisturizer. And I just put a pea sized amount of the moisturizer in the palm of my hand, and then put 2 drops of frankincense on top. Then I mix it all together with my finger (and sometimes I put other oils in there that I will talk about later), and put on my face. But, if you would rather mix it up beforehand and put it in a little container. Here are some containers you can use!
Yarrow Pom Is My Favorite
Yarrow Pom is a combination of two oil ingredients, yarrow and pomegranate. And it is my favorite because it is a beautiful navy blue color. It is also my favorite because it is just so good and helping get rid of those wrinkles.
This essential oil you can just put directly on your wrinkles. But this is also one I like to mix with the moisturizer and put all over my face. I usually just use my finger to spread it around. Also, yarrow pom is great for those under eye bags, so do not be afraid to put around the eyes. Just don’t get in the eye! If you wanted to see another recipe for eye bags, look at this one!
Don’t Forget Anti-Aging Blend
This blend is obviously perfect for wrinkles. It is called anti-aging blend so it is for all things to help with aging. While it is great for wrinkles, it is also great for scars or any kind of blemishes you would like to smooth out.
The essential oil company where I get my oils has a roller ball bottle of anti-aging already made. This makes it very convenient, because you can just open it and roll it over your wrinkles.
It can also be used on things like stretch marks, because lots of us reading this are moms. And many of us were pregnant with babies!! If you did know someone who was pregnant right now, go to my blog post about what oils mom should pack in her hospital bag.
An Anti-Aging Moisturizer
A natural anti-aging moisturizer is super important one of the solutions for wrinkles. And this is because, when your skin is dry you are going to have more chance of your skin have wrinkles. Because your skin will not have that elasticity to keep those wrinkles away.
Like I said earlier, I put the essential oils in the moisturizer and then put the whole combination all over my face. My oil company has a natural moisturizer that I use. But you just need to use a moisturizer that does not have lots of chemicals in it. So look at that the ingredients.
Other Useful Essential Oils
There are also other essential oils that can be helpful for your skin. Lavender essential oil is great for soothing the skin. Lavender oil is pretty gentle so you can apply it directly on your face. But if you would rather, you can mix with some coconut oil and put in a roller ball bottle and apply it that way. Here are some roller balls that I recommend.
Geranium is also an amazing oil for skin. It is so helpful at moisturizing the skin. When you put this oil on, your skin is so silky and smooth. And it glows. Geranium is the same as lavender; it is gentle and you can apply directly to your skin. Or you can put in a roller ball bottle with coconut oil and roll it on.
Helichrysum is not an essential oil you usually think of for the skin. But it is really helpful for those little capillary blood vessels that break sometimes when you get older. So it is definitely an oil to keep in mind.
As we get older and get those wrinkles. Here are some great natural solutions for wrinkles for you! And if you want to get some of the oils I talk about, go to my oil page!
