Wrinkles are the first and most notable indicators that people are getting old. They appear when the collagen and elastin in the connective tissue of the skin becomes thin and breaks down. Eventhough they appear everywhere, wrinkles are most visible on the face, neck, backs of hands and tops of forearms. Beside the aging process, there are also some external factors that cause wrinkles to appear earlier, such as excessive exposure to sunlight or hars environments, excessove stress, loss of vitamin E, genetic predisposition, smoking, use of certain drugs and sudden weight loss.
If you were worried about this issue, you can stop since there is an excellent homemade anti-aging cream which will help you to reduce wrinkles, but will also prevent new ones from forming. The best part of this remedy is that it is prepared from 4 natural ingredients that are easily found.
Vitamin C is essential for this cream since it stimulates the production of collagen, a protein that gives elasticity to the skin. By providing your skin with sufficient levels of vitamin C, you actually increase collagen production, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles.
You should definitely give it a try because you will save a lot of money that you were probably spending on many store bought creams and treatments, and as a bonus it will help you erase even the most stubborn lines on your face.
