Improve skin elasticity naturally | Prevent wrinkles with herbal remedies

Wrinkles and fine lines on skin are generally caused when skin loses its elasticity. Skin can lose its suppleness due to various factors including aging, exposure to the sun, make-up and cosmetics, soaps, smoking, weight gain and loss, air conditioning, prescription medicines and various other toxins that we encounter on a daily basis.

The most important factor in keeping skin soft and elastic is hydration. This can be achieved by avoiding the drying factors mentioned above. Some active steps can also be taken to keep skin toned and supple. These include:

  • A good diet with avoidance of fried foods
  • Drinking plenty of water
  • Supplements that nourish the skin and get rid of toxins
  • Exercise
  • Herbal facials
There are several herbal remedies that help to maintain skin elasticity. An anti-wrinkle cream from Himalaya Herbals contains 14 herbs that have been proven in Ayurvedic science to delay wrinkles and skin aging. These herbs which include Aloe Vera, Red poppy, Sandalwood, Grapes, Tomato and Turmeric provide the anti-oxidants and hydration that skin needs to stay elastic.
