No one likes creases – may it be clothes or face. When we say creases on the face, we mean those unattractive wrinkles. Once your skin loses its natural moisture and elasticity, wrinkles begin to appear. In fact, they are one of the clear signs that you are aging.
Wrinkles are a common problem that most people suffer from once they start ageing. When we reach a certain age the collagen & elastin fibres in the skin usually starts to get depleted and wrinkles appear which makes the skin look old. Wrinkles mainly occur on the face, forehead, neck, under or sides of the eyes, lips and even on the hands. Proper care of the skin is absolutely essential to get a wrinkle free skin.
Though this is a natural process, there are certain things that can worsen the condition. These usually include:
- Exposing yourself to UV rays
- Unhealthy diet
- Not being hydrated
- Lack of vitamin E
However there are some natural remedies that you can prepare to slow the aging process down and smooth out the wrinkles:
Lemon, beer and rose water toner
16 ounces of beer
16 ounces of rose water
Mix the lemon juice, beer and rose water and use a cotton pad to apply this as a toner.
Papaya has certain enzymes that remove your dead skin cells to give place to new ones. Banana, on the other hand, is loaded with beneficial nutrients that help in producing new skin cells.

Mash the papaya pieces and banana pieces. Mix them well. Apply on skin. Leave for 20 minutes. Wash off with lukewarm water.
