Wrinkles are a fact of life, and as we get older our skin will change dramatically. However, there are natural ways to reduce wrinkles without having to resort extreme measures like Botox and facelifts. Experts recommend the following ideas:

1. Eat more fish

Salmon, tuna and other seafoods are an excellent source of protein, which is the foundation for healthy skin. Fish is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which doctors believe can nourish and “plump up” your skin.

2. Get reading glasses

Squinting can lead to wrinkles, especially around the delicate skin of your eyes. If you’re struggling to read, consult with an optometrist who may be able to prescribe glasses. In turn, this will reduce the instance of crows-feet and fine lines.

3. Natural chemical peels

Alpha-hydroxy acids can gently remove the top layers of skin, helping you to look and feel refreshed. Natural sources of alpha-hydroxy acids include lemon, pineapple and tomatoes.

These fruits can be integrated into your diet, or the juices can be applied to your skin for about one minute. Test these juices on a patch of your hand first though, and remove immediately if your skin feels tingly.

4. Use less water

Dermatologists recommend using less tap water on your skin, because it can strip away natural moistures and oils. Washing your face too often can also affect your skin’s pH balance, leaving it more prone to wrinkles.

5. Wear Vitamin C

Some medical experts believe that Vitamin C can increase collagen production, protect against sun damage and even reduce uneven skin tones. There are natural Vitamin C creams available at your local chemist, so consult with a pharmacist.

Will you give these natural remedies a try? Are you worried about wrinkles as you get older, or are you comfortable “in your own skin”?

  1. I am happy in my skin and accept the fact that as part of the natural aging process my skin is constantly changing. Wrinkles or age lines have appeared and I have some grey hair. There is one thing I have noticed and that is if I view my face with glasses on the wrinkles look bigger. I doubt I will be loosing any sleep over my wrinkles. The other day I saw a woman, obviously in her 60s whos facial skin looked like she had pulled a condom over her head whilst the skin on her neck was akin to that of a lizard. Weird.

  2. Dont know about putting lemon juice on the face – sure to sting – would have to have skin like leather to do this.

  3. How are seniors EVER going to be happy with themselves when posts like this and posts about glamorous senior models etc are being put up constantly? Older models are NOT the norm, models are not normal looking for any age group. Glammed up senior actresses are not a norm. I’m hoping someone at SAS actually reads this and talks about it, and maybe stop it.

  4. I don’t do any thing special to my skin and so age as nature intended. My secret is to avoid looking in mirrors, it works a treat! I’m not constantly reminded that I’m ageing.

  5. Lots of moisturizer a good night cream with vitamin C is the answer. Lots of vegetables lean meat like chicken and fish. Little or no red meat.
