11 Effective Skincare Home Remedies To Fight Aging
1. Egg Whites
Egg whites make for a great anti-aging facial mask as they help improve the skin’s elasticity and can fade skin pigmentation. To use this, separate the egg whites from the yolk, mix until foamy, apply onto your face using a brush (or your fingers, except this will be tricky!), and let dry. Peel, et voila! Tight and youthful-looking skin!
Yeah, we were pretty surprised too, but it’s true! Potatoes contain anti-aging properties that can delay the signs of aging in the skin. To reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, simply grind a potato up (into a paste-like consistency) and apply as a facial mask. To treat crow’s feet, put two slices of raw potato on your eye, and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
3. Sesame and Castor Oil
Dermatologists and Ayurvedic practitioners swear by the application of sesame oil on the body to remove dead skin cells. The best way to incorporate sesame oil into your beauty regimen is by turning it into a daily massage routine where you apply the oil over your torso, arms, and legs. When using sesame oil, be sure it’s organic and untoasted. As for Castor oil, this is a great home remedy for preventing wrinkles.
Bananas are more than just an awesome source of potassium! They’re also great at tightening your skin and as a spot treatment for acne. To reap the beauty benefits of bananas, get a ripe one, mash it and mix the mash with olive oil, then apply on your face as a mask and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
5. Turmeric Paste with Sugarcane Juice
This is a home remedy that people have been using for centuries. While neither the smell nor color are amazing, this mask really does work wonders! Turmeric helps boost the skin’s collagen production and is a great anti-inflammatory. To use, mix turmeric powder with sugarcane juice and apply it on the face. This home remedy is great for removing wrinkles.
The fruit enzymes in papaya are what make it a wonderful wrinkle-fighting exfoliant. To use, get a ripe papaya, mash it, and apply it all over your face. You may also mix the pulp into your night cream so your skin can soak up its natural goodness while you sleep. Who knew being beautiful was so easy?!

Lemons are the holy grail of all-natural remedies. They do everything! Lemon juice is great for fading acne scars, age spots, wrinkles, and skin pigmentation leaving your skin tight and even-toned. When using lemon juice, it’s best to test a patch of skin before applying it on your face as the juice can be abrasive to sensitive skin. Never leave lemon juice on your face overnight, but rinse it off after 15-30 minutes.
Everyone knows Cleopatra loved her milk baths and now we know why! The lactic acid in milk sloughs off dead skin cells and aids in the formation of new ones.
