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 is the biggest reward they can hope to get. There are those who go to the extent of spending hefty amounts for dermatological products and enhancements to beat the tolls of time. Those who have modest means submit to slower processes by using commercial product in jars, bottles or tubes. But the best way is to make your own product - your own homemade or DIY skin care anti-aging products and treatments.

Who can benefit from DIY skin care anti-aging products?


Everyone who wants to stay young-looking can benefit from natural and homemade skin care concoctions that can be mixed in their own kitchen using ingredients from the home and garden. It is a good idea to start using these home treatments as early as possible, like in your mid- to late 20s. Doing this helps slow down the aging process and that is definitely a better proposition than reversing the effects of time. While there are many products out there on the market today that can delay the ravages of time, these are generally expensive, loaded with chemicals, or both. Cheap ones can give you goose pimples if they really work.

Scrubs and exfoliants: Stripping the old, damaged skin

  1. 1
    Salt or sugar?
    Salt and sugar are both good exfoliants. You can start with either one of them. Both exfoliants are natural, cheap and excellent. Epsom salts are salts that can help exfoliate the skin when used in high concentrations. These salts can be used for anything, like cleaning the furniture, removing calluses off your feet and soothing skin; this depends on the concentration. This kind of salt can also help dry rashes out from poison ivy.

Get rid of old and puffy eyes

    2. Place the tea bags over the eyes and compress for at least 10 minutes.
    3. These can greatly help in de-puffing the eyes. The best tea for this is white tea.

    Cool 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. It could be the 90 percent water in cucumber, or it could be because it is like a cold compress.

Tips, Tricks and Warnings

  • Egg and salmonella go together. If you are worried about salmonella growing on the outside of the egg shell, wash it before using.
  • CTM every day. Cleansing–Toning-Moisturizing. No matter what product you use, stick to these three daily cardinal steps to attain beautiful and young looking skin. Before retiring at the end of the day or before bedtime, take time to apply a moisturizer. Water-based moisturizers work best for oily skin.
  • Block the UV rays. Sunblock that is not less than SPF 30 must be applied whenever you go out into the sun. Solar radiation is the most overpowering enemy of skin that can cause premature wrinkling of skin as well as the dreadful skin cancer.
  • Embrace the regimen. To see visible results on the face, using the natural masks mentioned above, make sure to apply this concoction at least three times a week.
  • The extra mile. Using these face masks is not enough. For natural beauty to happen, it is important that you have a balanced diet and live a healthy lifestyle. Steer clear of raw vegetables, excess beans, breads and cauliflower.
  • Relax and de-stress by seeking peace. Begin meditating for at least 10 minutes every day. This can help in avoiding stress that can produce wrinkles.

Questions and Answers

Skin looks old compared to my age?

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 are 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.
