New Delhi: With ageing or exposure to ultraviolet rays, wrinkles occur commonly on our face. Though there are many beauty products being sold in the market, many of them have a negative effect on the skin in the long run. So it is best to go for natural remedies for skin to keep it healthy, youthful and glowing. 

Take a look at some of the homemade face packs for wrinkles:

Egg white and lemon juice face pack

The protein in egg whites help tighten the skin to improve its elasticity and reduce wrinkles.

Take an egg and remove the yolk from it and beat it. Now add 1 teaspoon of lemon juice to the egg white and mix well. Apply the mixture onto your face for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off from your face with the help of a warm washcloth.

Cucumber face pack

Cucumber can provide you with antioxidants you need to combat wrinkles. The vitamin C present in lemons is a strong antioxidant.

Take a half peel cucumber and grate it well. Add one egg white and one teaspoon lemon juice to the grated cucumber and mix them well. Now, apply the mixture on your face and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Wash it off with warm water.

Papaya and honey pack

Ripe papaya is rich in vitamins A, C and E and mixing it with honey helps in reducing the signs of skin aging - such as freckles and age spots.

Mash the ripe papaya to form a paste and add honey to it. Mix the ingredients well and apply it on face. Let it stay for 20 minutes and wash off with water.

Apple face pack

The antioxidants found in apples such as vitamins, A, C & E help to promote younger looking skin. The antioxidants can also prevent the premature onset of wrinkles.

First, boil an apple in water and when cools down, remove the seeds and mash it properly to form a paste and add honey and milk powder to it. Apply the paste on your face and leave it on for 15 minutes. Wash it off with cool water.

Honey and lemon pack

Honey is good for skin as it increases skin’s capacity to conserve moisture. Lemon juice nourishes dry skin and gives it a natural, healthy glow.

Take a tablespoon of honey and lemon juice each and mix well. Now, apply the mixture on your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water.
