Ageing is a very natural process, and it should be accepted the way it happens. We should only try to reverse or diminish the signs of ageing, if ageing happens before its time or unexpectedly.
There are several reasons as to why ageing happens earlier than it is supposed to. It could be due to present unhealthy eating habits, bad sleep patterns and even stress. Yes, stress and your mental health can have a huge impact on your skin.
It can even be because of less hydration, both internal and external. Not drinking enough water and including enough fruits in your diet can actually contribute to early signs of ageing. So make sure you drink at least eight glasses of water everyday, and include at least one fruit in your diet everyday.
External hydration is in the form of moisturisers and serums. The right ways and types of moisturisation of the face can actually decrease signs of ageing. So do not ever ignore the importance of moisturisation.
And of course, there is the worst reason for early ageing out of all, and that is smoking. Seriously, if good health and lungs do not stop you from smoking, I believe vanity should be a good reason to stop.
Apart from all that, here's a face pack you can make at home, with which signs of ageing would definitely slow down. And of course, the best part is that all the ingredients can be easily found at home.
Method and Application:
Grind half a teaspoon of flaxseeds and mix it in one to two teaspoons of honey. Add this mixture to a cup of yogurt. Mix it well, and apply it all over the face using a flat brush. A foundation brush works well for this purpose. Keep the mask on your face for around 30 minutes. Wash it off with cold water once the 30 minutes have passed.
Yogurt dissolves dead skin cells, while providing moisture too, and it makes the skin brighter. Honey is a natural exfoliant. It kills dead skin cells and makes the skin glow at the same time. Flaxseeds provide gentle exfoliation. So this mask would work as a triple action dead skin removal system, and that too a natural one. It is gentle enough for regular use as well, unlike other masks and exfoliants.
