15 Best Homemade Anti Wrinkles Face Masks

A homemade face mask won't get rid of your wrinkles, but some masks can temporarily tighten and plump the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. You do not have to spend hundreds of dollars on spa treatments to help reduce wrinkles. Forget about cosmetics and expensive creams, instead go herbal and rejuvenate your skin and look young and healthy always. You can do any of these homemade anti-aging skin care recipes in the comfort of your own home, using only natural ingredients, to take care of the overall health of your skin. Here are some of the best homemade anti aging face masks to reduce wrinkles.

15 Best Homemade Anti Wrinkles Face Masks

1 . Cocoa & Milk Face Mask

Pure, unsweetened cocoa powder is rich in antioxidants and provides your skin with protective benefits. Milk contains natural lactic acid to help soften and exfoliate the skin, encouraging it to shed dead skin cells. When you mix the two together, you are left with brighter skin and may notice a softening of fine lines. To make this mask, combine the two ingredients to form a paste and then apply to damp skin. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse off with warm water.

2 . Buttermilk and Oatmeal Mask

All you need is a cup of buttermilk and 4 tablespoons of oatmeal that has been boiled. Let the oatmeal cool to room temperature then add a tablespoon of olive and almond oil. Make a fine paste and apply it on your face. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse it off to feel tightened skin and fewer wrinkles.

3 . Green Tea

Green tea is consistently being hailed as a powerful antioxidant, and is one of the people of Okinawa Japan's secrets for longevity and vibrant health. Putting it on directly on the skin is equally potent.

4 . Walnuts, Yogurt and Almond Oil

For this homemade anti-aging skin care recipe, you'll need two whole walnuts. Start by crushing the insides of the nuts, then mix in two tablespoons of yogurt, followed by a teaspoon of 100% pure almond oil. This creates a natural exfoliant that's gentle enough for everyday use. Each ingredient has a role to play in this homemade anti-aging skin care recipe the walnut buffs away dead skin, dirt, and oil from the face, while the lactic acid in the yogurt refines texture and tightens pores. The almond oil will sooth and moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth.

5 . Sugar Anti aging Mask

Sugar is a preferred exfoliant to salt because it tends not to tear at the skin. When dead skin collects on the surface of skin, it's important to slough it away. This helps clear up clogged pores. When skin isn't exfoliated, it can appear ashy. Take 2 tbsp sugar, 3 tbsp warm water. Stir sugar into warm water so that it melts. Make sure granules are dissolved, otherwise they could tear your skin. Apply to face. Gently massage around the skin. Rinse with steaming water.

6 . Tomato Facial Mask Recipe

If you have normal skin it can be enriched by Tomato Facial Mask. First, cut a small sized raw tomato into 2 halves and gently rub both halves on your face in circular motion. Then after leaving it for some time you have to rinse your face completely. Tone and moisturize.

7 . Cucumber Mask

Take a small cucumber and grate it. Add egg white, a tablespoon of lemon juice and apple paste. Apply it all over your face and leave it for 20 minutes. The enzymes of the cucumber will soothe your skin and make it look fresher and younger.

8 . Egg Whites Facial Mask

Often I use egg whites. Just beat one egg white until it is frothy. Spread it all over your face, then lay down on bed or sofa on your back face up. Wait until it dries. Rinse. Your face will feel clean and "tight" after this application.

9 . Papaya Greek Yogurt Face Mask

Papaya is rich in an enzyme called Papain, which helps to slough away dead skin cells to reveal glowing skin. Greek yogurt is protein rich and full of lactic acid. Plain Greek yogurt, when applied topically, can tighten the pores. Simply mix equal parts of the two ingredients and apply a thick layer to the skin. Lie down and relax. Rinse off after 15-25 minutes. For extra brightening, you can squeeze in a bit of lemon juice or pineapple juice.

10 . Avocado Face Mask

Avocado is a naturally rich moisturizer. Mash the meat of the avocado into a creamy texture. Massage into the face and neck . Leave on for 15 minutes or until completely dry, and gently rinse.

11 . Banana Mask

Bananas are full of anti-aging properties and rich in vitamins E and A. You can make a great anti aging face pack by mashing a banana and adding a tablespoon each of cream and honey. Mix the paste well and apply it on to your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse off.

12 . Strawberry Mask

Good for oily skin. Take 3 strawberries, one teaspoon honey, one teaspoon lemon juice and one teaspoon brown sugar. Mix together (mash the strawberries) till a paste is formed.Apply and keep for 10 minutes and then clean it with a towel soaked in warm water.

13 . Cantaloupe Mask

For any kind of skin. Mix a piece of cantaloupe with a teaspoon of honey, a teaspoon of orange juice and a teaspoon of rosewater. Apply it for 15 minutes and wash with warm water. Do it two times a week for few weeks. It's an anti wrinkle mask and it's pretty good.

14 . Honey and Orange Juice

Facial masks are an ultimate nutrient delivery system in anti-aging skin care. To make this age defying facial mask, take 1 teaspoon of honey and add few drops of orange juice to it. Apply this pack all over your face and leave it for 20 minutes. Thereafter wash your face with warm water and pat dry. This anti aging mask recipe is beneficial for mature skin to look younger and regular use of this mixture will help in reducing the fine lines and sagging skin. This anti aging home remedy also reduces the tanning effect and gives your skin a white glowing look.

15 . Honey Oatmeal

Honey is one of nature’s greatest skincare gifts. Not only is it moisturizing, but it also contains antioxidants and antibacterial properties. Oatmeal acts as a gentle exfoliant, revealing smoother and more youthful skin. It also contains selenium, zinc, and copper to fight wrinkles. Combine equal parts honey and oatmeal and stir gently. Apply this mask to damp skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.


Tips to Remember:

1 . Brew a small cup of chamomile or fennel tea. Dip cotton wool pads into it and cover your eyes with them as you wait for the mask to

2 .  You must keep in mind that homemade facial masks do not contain preservatives. Therefore, it is recommended that you use up the whole of your anti-aging mask and make a fresh pack the next time you intend to use it.

3 . Before applying the mask on your face, dab it on a part of your arm or leg to ensure that your skin does not react adversely to the ingredients.

As you have just read, there is no need for you to buy expensive skin care products to fight the signs of aging when you have all the natural ingredients you need to make a great anti-aging face mask! Stay gorgeous!!!
