Best Natural Ingredients To Delay Ageing

Written By:

Ageing is a very natural process, and most of us would like to do so gracefully, regardless of how depressing the idea of it may be. There are some amazing natural ingredients you can incorporate into your skin care regime to delay all signs of ageing till it's the time for them to actually appear.

Sometimes, our skin can age a lot sooner than it is supposed to. The contributing factors to this may be things like stress, pollution or even sun damage.

We have stressed a lot on the importance of SPF and sunscreen lotions and we will not stop. Sunscreen can actually delay the signs of ageing to a great extent.

That should be reason enough to never skip that sunscreen. Even on days when you can't see the sun being as bright, it is important to use an SPF product.

Try using BB creams, as they all have sunscreen in them and provide coverage too. This is a great hack for people who are lazy.

Seeing lines and wrinkles before you expected them can be depressing indeed. However, with these natural ingredients, you can avoid them, of course not forever, but till the time comes for them. Have a look!


1. Coconut Oil:

One of the best kept secrets from our ancestors is about the use of this ingredient. Well, it's not really a secret anymore. Coconut oil can be used to avoid fine lines and wrinkles. Just massage it on to your face and keep it overnight, wake up to fresh and hydrated skin.


2. Aloe Vera Gel:

Want something a little gentler and less greasy? Go for this amazing water-like gel. The consistency helps it get absorbed by the skin really fast and it provides deep hydration, as dryness is definitely the main cause of early ageing.


3. Castor Oil:

Castor oil is rich in omega fatty acids and minerals that make it so perfect as an ingredient to delay the signs of ageing and keep those lines at bay!


4. Rosehip Oil:

Now, this is almost a magical oil. This oil is absorbent and is a cure for a host of beauty problems like ageing and even sun and age spots. You can use this as a night-time serum for best results.


5. Grape Seed Oil:

This light and non-greasy oil is perfect for getting rid of early signs of ageing. You can use it overnight or during the day under your sunscreen, as it is so light.


6. Vitamin E Oil:

The oil derived from vitamin E capsules can be mixed into any cream to turn it into a safe and natural anti-ageing cream. Now, this may not seem as effective as a branded cream, but it's the best you can get from natural ingredients!


7. Almond Oil:

Almond oil is rich in vitamin E, the holy grail of all skin care dilemmas. Apply almond oil and keep it overnight to wake up and see the life in your skin.


8. Petroleum Jelly:

Petroleum jelly is something that each and every one of us owns. This may feel a little too greasy for some people, but trust us, it works. You would wake up to refreshed and supple skin.


9. Argan Oil:

Argan oil is really good for hair. But, its skin care uses are not as widely known. Moisturising your face with argan oil can keep wrinkles and lines away till it's time for them to appear.


10. Olive Oil:

Olive oil has amazing benefits for almost all problems. This oil also has a very good content of minerals and vitamins that are necessary for skin care. Plus, it's absolutely safe to use.
