People, especially women, generally want to look younger than their biological age. This requires diligent and conscious effort, not to mention money, to stay and look their best through the years. To be complimented for not looking their age makes them feel amazing. There are those who go to the extent of spending hefty amounts of money for dermatological products and enhancements to slow down or reduce the effects time has on our skin. Those who have modest means submit to slower processes by using a commercial product in jars, bottles or tubes. Perhaps the best way is to make your own products - your own homemade or DIY skin care anti-aging products and treatments.

Scrubs and Exfoliants

Stripping the old, damaged skin is one of the kindest things you can do to improve your complexion.

  1. 1
    Salt or sugar

    Salt and sugar both work well to exfoliate dead skin. You can start with either one of them. They are natural, cheap and provide excellent results. Epsom salts can help exfoliate the skin when used in high concentrations. These salts can be used for anything, like cleaning the furniture, removing calluses from your feet and soothing skin; depending on the concentration. This kind of salt can also help deal with rashes from poison ivy.

    Cool as a cucumber

    Cooling cucumbers relax the eyes. The benefits of cucumbers are still a subject of debate and research, yet, it is undeniable that there are many articles gushing over the wonderful rewards of cucumber over tired and puffy eyes. It could be another of those old wives' tales, but the fact remains that cold, moist cucumbers have some very relaxing effects on puffy eyes. Perhaps it's because cucumbers are 90 percent water, or it could be because it is like a cold compress, but there is something in cucumbers that relieves puffy eyes.

Pimples caused by oily skin.

Oil isn't necessarily bad for your skin. In fact, people who live in certain climates find that the oil on their skin helps them stay looking young. It's only when they move away from those climates that they end up suffering. If you're having problems with pimples that are causing you to look older than you are, you will probably benefit from an Aloe Vera Facial Mask to Treat Acne. There are other things you can do as well, but your first priority should be clearing up your acne, before you try any of the Anti-Aging skin care recommendations in this article. Some of them will just irritate your existing acne.
