Your skin can look older than you really are. The constant sun exposure, pollution, as well as your everyday worries can make your face tired and wrinkled sooner than you’ve expected.
Even though you can’t stop the natural aging process, and the changes it brings on your skin and health, you can slow it down.
Numerous expensive anti-aging face creams promise you no wrinkles and fine lines. However, they contain chemicals which can harm your skin while trying to fix it. Besides, they often cost a fortune, so you can’t always afford to buy them.
Luckily, you can make your own face cream using nothing but a few natural ingredients. Each of them has skin-improving, anti-aging properties which will make your skin look younger than before.
It will help reduce the wrinkles and fine lines on your face, as well as remove spots and other signs of aging. The ingredients include olive (or almond oil), raw honey, egg yolk, and pharmaceutical Vaseline.
Here’s why each of them matters.
Benefits Of The Ingredients
Olive Oil – it’s rich in vitamin A, E, D, and K, and antioxidants which help prevent free radical damage– one of the major causes of premature aging. Olive oil helps hydrate and moisturize the skin while fighting acne-causing bacteria.
Honey – it contains strong probiotic, antibacterial, and healing properties and it hydrates and nourishes the skin. However, make sure you use raw, unfiltered honey as this type of honey is the most beneficial one for the skin.
Egg Yolk – thanks to its content which is mostly water and fats, the egg yolk is an excellent water-binding agent which keeps moisture in the skin cells. It’s especially beneficial for those with dry or flaky skin as it makes the skin soft and supple.
Its nutrients help nourish, hydrate and moisturize dull skin. Moreover, the zinc in egg yolks helps treat acne and pimples, as well as slow down the skin’s aging process.
Pharmaceutical Vaseline– it moisturizes the skin and helps heal minor wounds, burns, and scrapes.
DIY Facial Cream For Wrinkle Removal Recipe
- 1 tbsp. of olive oil (you can use almond oil)
- 1 egg yolk

Melt the Vaseline and let it steam for a bit. Remove from heat and add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well to get a homogeneous texture. Transfer the cream to a container and store it in the fridge.
How To Use
Wash your face before applying the cream. Use a circular motion to rub it gently, and let it act for 30 minutes. Then, soak a cotton pad in some mineral water and use it to clean your face from the cream.
Repeat this natural skin treatment several times, once a day, and you’ll notice drastic changes in your skin. It will not only reduce your fine lines and wrinkles, but it will also hydrate it and make it glowing once again.
Try it out as you have nothing to lose, except for a few wrinkles. However, you should avoid it if you are allergic to some of the ingredients.
