Every woman has her own beauty secret for younger looking skin. We asked our readers to send in their favorite anti aging skin care remedy. Here's what we got:
Most people know the effects of winter weather are dry and irritated skin. What they don't know is that dry skin leads to wrinkles and aging skin. My secret for beautiful young looking skin is using a humidifier in my home, especially during the winter months. The humidifier not only moisturizes the air but moisturizes my skin as well. My skin is left smooth and supple all year long.
A great anti aging skin care tip is to spritz your face throughout the day with mineral water. This is the perfect alternative to washing your face with tap water since it strips away natural oils. These oils are important to protecting skin and preventing wrinkles. If your skin is oily, then a spritzer works great. It provides moisture without the being heavy or oily like some moisturizers.
Aloe is known for its beneficial properties on the skin. It moisturizes and soothes dry skin. If you haven't heard already moisturized skin is vital to anti aging skin care and aloe vera gel makes a great healing moisturizer. Use it on your face and body as often as possible.
My anti aging skin care remedy was given to me by my grandmother. And let me tell you it works. Once a week I apply a honey mask. Yes, honey. Hone is a great humectant and helps your skin stay supple and smooth. Make a mask of honey and mix in the contents of Vitamin E capsules. Leave it on for ten minutes and rinse with warm milk and pat dry.
Complexion MD anti wrinkle cream is the best anti aging skin care remedy hands down! Ever since I started using it, my husband just can't stop wondering what I have done to my face. He says I look ten years younger. Their claim is true; you do see results in just a matter of weeks. I can hardly find any of my crow's feet or facial wrinkles!

Carrots are anti oxidant foods which help remove toxins in your body. They are good to eat and even better to apply on your skin. Add carrot juice to your moisturizer and see how young your complexion will look.
A fruit mask is a great anti aging skin care remedy because it has wonderful nourishing and exfoliating properties. They help remove old skin cells leaving behind fresh young skin. Crush strawberries, bananas, and cucumbers to create a mask. Apply and leave on for ten minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. Your face will feel like brand new!
My home remedy for wrinkles is applying Vitamin E directly on them. It keeps wrinkles moisturized and minimizes their appearance.
Our skin wears down and ages faster with all the pollutants in the air. Witch hazel is a gentle skin cleanser. It removes dirt and oil which can clog pores and leaves your skin with a healthy glow.
The most important anti aging thing you can do for your skin is get rest. When you lack sleep your body produces cortisol which breaks down skin cells. This makes skin thinner and prone to wrinkles. On the flip side, plenty of rest produces hormones which strengthen skin cells by making them thicker and less likely to wrinkle. So catch those zzz's!
