What are Facial Wrinkles?
Facial wrinkles are often referred to as ‘laugh lines’; however for some individuals, facial wrinkles are no laughing matter, and can also appear on the forehead.
As facial wrinkles in particular seem to reveal the years, in recent times, drastic measures have been introduced to stop, reduce, or get rid of the tell tale signs of aging on the face. The facelift is a cosmetic surgery treatment for wrinkles, pouches, bags, and sagging skin. This is not a long tern answer – as the signs of age will eventually return and another facelift will be needed!
Furthermore, these procedures are invasive and cause trauma to the facial tissues. Botox injections have become popular to reduce the appearance of wrinkles – however, this is one of the most deadly biochemicals known! This substance partially paralyzes facial muscles and is not a procedure that should be undertaken without thorough research regarding the potential risks!
What Causes Facial Wrinkles?
With the passing of the years we go through the aging process and in the same way that our bodies age – our skin is usually first to deteriorate.
The skin becomes darker, less flexible, rougher, and more leathery – with the appearance of fine lines (in our thirties), and folds, pouches, and blemishes or discolorations gradually appear and/or become more pronounced as fatty deposits and bone may be lost to produce pouches in the cheeks (in our forties and fifties). There seems to be no escaping it – wrinkles indicate age.
Help for Facial Wrinkles
The best way to deal with wrinkles is to prevent or postpone them for as long as possible. Natural products such as herbal and homeopathic remedies can help keep skin supple and moisturized. Herbal and homeopathic remedies present a gentle option – without the harsh side effects of chemicals and synthetics.
Spirulina can help to promote skin metabolism and lessen the appearance of fine lines and creases while the herb Dandelion can be used to naturally detox the skin and purify the blood and lymphatic system, thus promoting an inner glow that helps create translucent skin.
Other herbs such as Horsetail and Rosemary can also be beneficial – helping to smooth texture, strengthen and tone the skin while Kali sulph and Silicea nourish skin cells from the inside on a cellular level.
