It's funny how when you're young, you want to be old but when you're old, you want to look young. Many people spend huge amounts of money on plastic surgeries and cosmetic procedures like Botox or fillers to look younger every year. According to plasticsurgery.org, Americans spent over 16 billion dollars on cosmetic procedures last year alone.
But what most people don’t know is that nature has many remedies that we can do at home with some comparable results... it's a win, win. Save money while doing it at home.
Here are some of those remedies to take years off your face and make you look 21 again.
1. Lemon juice to reduce age spots
What To Do: Squeeze out the juice from a lemon, apply and leave on your skin for about 15 minutes every day and then rinse with plain water. You can even get better results: combine 1 teaspoon of lemon juice with a half teaspoon of milk cream and 1 teaspoon of egg white. Mix all these ingredients and apply on the face; after 15 minutes, rinse with cold water.
2. Coconut milk to moisturize dry skin
Coconut is packed full of vitamins and minerals; it also has the ability to moisturize your skin and keep it soft, supple and radiantly young.
What To Do: Grate a raw coconut and squeeze the milk out of it. Apply this coconut milk onto your face; stay for about 20 minutes and then rinse it out with warm water.
3. Papaya mask for skin firmness
Papaya is great for the eyes because it has a lot of vitamin A; the same is true for the rest of your face. It has a strong antioxidant action and this makes it good for your skin too. Besides, the enzyme called papain in papaya can digest the dead cells on the surface of the skin and makes skin more elastic and firm.
What To Do: To make a papaya mask, cut a few pieces of a totally ripe papaya fruit and mash into a smooth paste. Apply this on the face and after 15 minutes, wash away with warm water.
