Home Remedies To Slow Down Ageing

Written By:

Ageing is an inevitable thing that happens to everyone at some point or the other. However, it can be slightly disturbing, especially if you are seeing the early signs of ageing. There are some of the home remedies for ageing skin that you could try out before you get upset about the whole process.

It is said that you start to show the first signs of ageing by your mid-twenties, while we all hope that this is not true, it is good to take precautions to avoid the same. One of the main reasons for ageing to start before it's time is the skin being too dry.

Dry skin can make the skin reduce collagen production and lead to the increase of free radicals in the skin. And one of the areas in the skin that gets neglected the most is actually the under-eye area. We tend to forget to moisturise this area, even though this is the one area that needs maximum moisture.

Other sensitive areas can be the forehead and the corner of the mouth. These areas can start to get what we call expression lines.

However, we hope with these perfect home remedies for ageing skin, you'll be able to address the situation better. Here is how you can reduce the chances of early ageing signs with these home remedies.


1. Rosehip Oil:

This is one of the most effective oils for ageing skin. You can use this oil as an overnight serum for best results. Start using this early on to reduce the chances of ageing.


2. Coconut Oil:

Coconut oil is the safest bet if you want a home remedy to slow down ageing, which is cheap and works well. Use it at night as a moisturiser.


3. Aloe Vera:

Since dryness appears to be the main culprit behind the early signs of ageing, aloe vera gel would be an excellent home remedy to slow down ageing, as the gel gets absorbed by the skin really fast and keeps the skin hydrated all day long.


4. Ghee:

Ghee is one of the best ingredients for reducing the signs of ageing. It is known to actually help in the production of collagen as well.


5. Butter:

Butter is another ingredient that you can use for similar purposes as the ghee is used. Make sure you wash it off before you sleep, else it can stain your pillows.


6. Almond Oil:

Almond oil is rich in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, which are really good for dry skin. Vitamin E is one of the best gifts that your skin can get.


7. Castor Oil:

Castor oil is a really rich oil with omega fatty acids that can help keep wrinkles at bay. Use this at least once a week and as an overnight remedy to treat early ageing signs.
