Homemade Anti-Aging Products

By: Taryn Tacher

We are all in a race against time. Though we may never win the race, there are some ways we can seemingly turn back the clock and fight the inevitable effects of aging.

I concocted a recipe for an anti-aging facial scrub using ingredients that rejuvenate the skin and keep it looking young. Avocado is full of antioxidants that help thicken the skin to reduce the likelihood of wrinkles. Salt acts as a natural exfoliator and whole milk nourishes the skin. Honey opens pores and lemon juice can help reduce the appearance of age spots. Vanilla extract is full of vitamin B that helps keep skin healthy. It also provides a sweet fragrance for the scrub.

Ingredients:

1½ teaspoons of avocado

1 teaspoon of salt

1 tablespoon of whole milk

1½ teaspoons of honey

1 teaspoon of lemon juice

2 drops of vanilla extract

Recipe:

  1.     Mash avocado in a bowl until there are no large chunks remaining.
  2.     Add the remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly until you have a liquid mixture.
  3.     Gently massage the scrub on your face for one minute.
  4.     Rinse your face.

If you’re looking to create a facemask, try replacing whole milk with Greek yogurt to thicken the mixture into a paste. Apply evenly to your face and let it set for 10 minutes before washing it off.
