One of the first signs of aging is wrinkles, especially the ones that appear right by your eyes. You know, those not so fine fine lines? Crows feet as some may say. So aside from a healthy diet and a kick ass eye cream, here is a simple Homemade Rose and Aloe Wrinkle Fighting Mask that you can whip up to help prevent or reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
What You Need:
- 1 tablespoon of fresh Aloe Vera gel. If you don’t have an Aloe Vera plant, you should definitely get one. There are tons of benefits to having a pot right at your home.
- 1 egg white
- 1 Vitamin E Capsule
- 4 drops of rose water
What To Do:
First, you need to get the Aloe Vera gel. Don’t worry. This is super easy. Pick a leaf from the plant and then simply squeeze out the good stuff until you have enough of what you need. With Aloe Vera, a little really does go a long way. So one tablespoon should definitely suffice for your face.
Once you have that ready, mix in your egg white as well as the 4 drops of rose water. Then take a Vitamin E capsule, prick it with a needle, and just as with the Aloe Vera, again, you want to squeeze out the good stuff. Now that you have all the ingredients you need in a bowl, mix away. Mix until everything is well blended together.
- Don’t have Rose Water? Well, if you’ve got a bunch of roses, then you’re in luck! You can actually make your own. Learn how to make rose water here.
- Don’t have a bunch of roses lying around, well then you can easily pick up a bottle of Rose Water here. It’s 100% pure and organic and hassle free!!!
The best way to apply this mask, or any other facial mask for that matter, is to use a brush. Cover your face (of course leaving the eye and mouth areas) and leave for a good 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with lukewarm water and pat dry.
- Why the egg white? This will actually help firm your skin, but just for a while, which makes it the perfect natural base for any homemade mask. As for its anti-aging factors, it can actually help make the pores on your skin smaller, plus it is really great to fight acne too!
