Simple Homemade Anti-Aging Facials

We all want to age gracefully and hold on to our youthful skin for as long as we can. Wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, laugh lines and dark spots are some of the biggest nightmares of every woman. Most women above the age of 30 thirty spend lots of money on clinical procedures and anti ageing creams to regain their youthful skin.


However, do you know that there are many home remedies to fight all signs of ageing without spending a fortune and without any side effects. Read further to know about the homemade anti-ageing tips for young and glowing skin.


1. Egg Mask:

Egg is a powerhouse of all the anti-ageing elements like omega3 fatty acid, proteins, zinc and the egg yolk contains a special anti-ageing compound called the “biotin”. Biotin helps in the fat production in the body and repairs the damaged skin, thus keeping the wrinkles away. Egg is known to tighten the skin and is known to be a great anti aging tip.




  • Take 1 teaspoon of egg white in a bowl.
  • To this add a teaspoon of lemon juice
  • Mix well and apply this all over your face.
  • Leave it for 15 minutes and rinse with cold water.
  • Apply this face pack every other day.

2. Carrot and Potato Mask:

Carrots are a rich source of Vitamin A, which helps in booting the collagen production of skin. Collagen makes the skin tight and prevents wrinkles thus giving a very youthful glow to your face. Potato is also considered to be a great anti aging tip or ingredient that smooths the skin while reducing wrinkles.

  • Boil one small carrot and potato and chop into small pieces.
  • Mash them to form a smooth paste.
  • To this add a pinch of turmeric and baking soda
  • Mix well to obtain a smooth paste.
  • Apply all over the face and keep for 20 minutes. Rinse with warm water.

3. Yogurt pack:

It is also rich in vitamin A and Lactic acid which are anti-ageing elements. Consuming yogurt could also help your skin from inside.

  • Take a teaspoon of honey and to this add 2 teaspoons of yogurt.
  • Add 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice.
  • Take a capsule of vitamin E. In this tutorial I have used “Evion 400” capsule. Cut from its tip and gently pour the liquid into the pack.
  • Add a pinch of turmeric into it.
  • Mix well and apply this pack all over the face.
  • Leave it for 10-15 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

4. Coconut milk:

This topical fruit fights all signs of ageing, making your skin soft and smooth. It has antioxidants and anti inflammatory properties which keeps the wrinkles away.

  • Grate a coconut and squeeze out the milk out of it.
  • Soak the cotton balls into this milk and apply it all over the face.
  • After 20 minutes, rinse with cool water.


5. Banana pack:

One of the widely known fruit for its anti-ageing properties, banana contains vitamin A, B and E. It is a rich source of zinc, potassium and iron which is beneficial especially for women.

  • Chop and mash a small ripe banana.
  • To this add 1 teaspoon of rose water and 1 teaspoon of honey.
  • Finally add 1 teaspoon of yoghurt and mix well to form a smooth paste.
  • Apply this pack and keep it for 20 minutes. Then rinse it with cool water.

6. Potato juice:

Potatoes are also a rich source of vitamin A, which helps to regenerate collagen in the body that has been damaged and prevent a loss of skin elasticity.

  • Grate a small raw potato and squeeze out the juice out of it.
  • Soak the cotton balls into this and apply it all over the face.

7. Papaya pack:

Papaya is rich in antioxidants and contains a special enzyme called papain that can kill dead cells and cure skin impurities. It also helps in regenerating new cells and provides elasticity to our skin.

  • Chop a few pieces of a ripe papaya.
  • Mash it with warm water (or lime if you have oily skin) to form a smooth paste.
  • Apply it all over and leave it for 10 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

The secret to any skincare regimen is consistency and patience, so use one or two of these treatments twice a week faithfully and over time the result would be glaring for all to see.

Until next post...remain beautiful.
