Having a soft, glowing, clear, and healthy skin never goes out of style, so we all tend to find an effective solution to achieve this goal. Yet, commercial skin care products are often full of harmful chemicals, have not even been tested before being released on the market.
Studies have found that multiple skin care products are rich in phthalates, a key component in plastic, and numerous of these products are not properly labeled, and hide terrible truths about their ingredients.
According to Elizabeth Sword, executive director of the Children’s Health Environmental Coalition:
“There are industry trade secrets and formulations that for industry reasons are kept from the consumer. This prevents the consumer from making fully informed decisions.”
Therefore, people are turning to natural alternatives these days.
The following homemade anti-wrinkle and anti-aging skin cream has strong antibacterial, detoxifying, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal qualities.
It combines the beneficial properties of aloe vera gel and coconut oil.Malic acid in aloe vera makes your skin flawless, and coconut oil is abundant in vitamin E. This vitamin is essential in the fight against premature aging, wrinkles and sagging skin.
Therefore, the application of the following mixture will help you treat all kinds of skin conditions, prevent saggy skin, and reduce wrinkles:
- 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel
Combine two tablespoons of each cold-pressed coconut oil and fresh aloe vera gel. Stir well, and apply the resulting mixture on your face. Let it dry and rinse with cold water.
Repeat three times a week for a month, and your skin will look better than ever!
