A lot of women are well aware that some of the best anti-aging secrets have ingredients that do not come in an expensive package from their local health and beauty outlet but are found in their pantries. Ancients Secrets · Olive oil · Botanical oils My favorite anti-aging treatment, and a favorite of many women since ancient times, is olive oil. Women concerned about their weight know that this tasty oil is a source of good cholesterol, but it’s also essential for its anti-aging benefits. Olive oil nourishes the skin. Added to botanical oils it reduces dryness, acne, rosacea and wrinkles. In choosing an olive oil to use on your face and body, remember that the highest grade of oil has the greatest concentration of oleic acid, the secret ingredient that makes olive oil the most important pantry item for skin renewal. My regimen includes a topical application of one of California’s extra virgin olive oils an hour before I shower. I try to do this at least once a week. Beauty Foods · Spinach · Kale · Blueberries · Kiwifruit · Lemon · Strawberries Including lots of fruits and vegetables in your diet is an important part of anti-aging, and skin rejuvenation and preservation. Choose vegetables and fruits that are highest in lycopene and beta-carotene, which neutralize harmful ultraviolet rays. Look for high vitamin C content; this vital vitamin stimulates the production of collagen to get rid of fine lines. The best anti-aging vegetables include baby spinach and kale. Fruits that pack a healthy punch include blueberries, kiwifruit, lemon and strawberries. To get the most from your pantry, grow your own fruits and vegetables and preserve them yourself. If you do not have the room to grow a garden in your yard, find a farm in your area where produce is picked ripe. Facial Food Mask · Avocado · Kiwifruit · Apricots · Rose water · Lemon juice · Honey · Yeast · Aspirin A lot of women have been talking about the anti-aging benefits of face masks made with avocado since the International Journal of Cosmetic Science reported that the sugars in avocado boost epidermis collagen. Women have been mixing avocado with kiwifruit, or other fruits with lots of vitamins C and E, and applying it topically to their faces. Another promising face mask recipe calls for three apricots, peeled and mashed with a fork, mixed with a teaspoon of honey. If a solution for acne is needed with your anti-aging treatment, try a mask made with one teaspoon each of rose water and lemon juice, 10 grams of yeast and one aspirin. Perfecting Your Skin · Cucumber extract · Garlic juice · Lemon juice · Aloe Vera juice · Cinnamon · Onion juice · Carrot juice · Vinegar Wrinkles are not alone in making your skin look older, anti-aging remedies include treatments that minimize pores, reduce puffiness, acne and acne scars, make age spots disappear and reduce dryness.

Another remedy for age spots is one teaspoon of onion juice and two teaspoons of vinegar; mix and apply until the spots disappear. Carrot juice applied daily also fades age spots and other blemishes.
