How do I get rid of wrinkles around my mouth?

Natural cures for wrinkles

Getting rid of wrinkles around the mouth can be quite challenging, especially after the age of 50 years. It is important for you to know that wrinkles are a natural by product of age and getting rid of them completely would require nothing short of a surgery. The best thing you can do is retard their growth and try to do away with finer lines as much as you can. You should try not to expose your skin too much to the harsh elements of nature such as excessive sun, water or dry air. This will require for your skin to remain constantly moisturized and well cared for. This can be your first step towards getting rid of wrinkles.

You should also try to rest well, as lack of sleep and proper rest is yet another reason for an abundance of wrinkles. You can make an excellent face pack with whipped egg whites to which a few drops of lime juice have been added. This will help to do away with finer lines and will also prevent their further appearance. You can also make an excellent collagen rich face pack with crushed papaya and pineapple. Leave this on for about 20 minutes and then wash. You will notice the emergence of fresher and healthier skin almost at once.

Wrinkle home treatment

The most common reason for the development of wrinkles on our body is advancing age. Some people who spend a lot of time in the sun often develop wrinkles around their eyes irrespective of their age but for most of us the first sign of a wrinkle is seen as ushering in old age.

Wrinkles develop when the skin loses its elasticity. Constant exposure to the elements robs the skin of its moisture and causes wrinkles to appear.

You can try some home remedies to smooth out the wrinkles from your face. You can warm some coconut oil and massage this on your face. Since you have wrinkles around your mouth, you can concentrate on that area. You can massage this on your face at bedtime and leave it on overnight. You can make a mix of one tablespoon of olive oil, one tablespoon of cream and half a tablespoon of honey and apply this on your face. Pineapple is effective in treating wrinkles. You can use the core of the fruit. Rub this gently on your face and let it dry. Remember to use only cold or lukewarm water while washing your face. Avoid rubbing hard at your face when you wash.
